OOTD: Over the knee boots and leopard print coat
A statement outfit to make you stand out in the crowd. It's been bitter cold recently and I've been reaching for leather layers and cosy coats that'll keep me snug when I'm out and about. I love how bold this outfit is and how sassy it makes me feel when I wear it. Leather and leopard print is a pretty daring combination but keeping the under layers simple is the key to rocking it.
I've been on the lookout for some knee high leather boots for yonks but always struggle to find boots that fit my chunky calves. I even once tried on a "wide fit" pair that didn't zip up on the buggers - that was a low point! It's not even like my legs are fat so I can slim them down at the gym, I am just graced with genetically huge calf muscles and so sadly this will be a lifelong struggle. 😒
So, when I found this pair of over-the-knee leather boots from Clarks in the sale for £120 down from £150 I jumped for joy. They have stretchy material all around the back so mould to your leg shape and elongate the legs thanks to their over-the-knee style - (a definite plus for short-arses like me!)
I bought this gorgeous faux fur leopard print coat from Motel Rocks a few years back for around £40. I really love the subtlety of the colours and the small print, which makes it look more classy than brash. (I tend to steer clear of more orangey or coloured leopard prints.)
My leather skirt is from Urban Renewal @ Urban Outfitters. Bit of a gamble as to what they have in stock colour wise, but you can often find a gem.
I'm I love with these Hollister polo neck tops which cost only £15. They're a super snug fit but have a little bit of stretch for comfort.
Osprey - I nabbed this gorgeous handbag in TK Max for a fraction of the original price and have been obsessed with it since.
