suede & leather

Almost Couture Manchester Fashion Blog

I’m such a lover of leather. Regardless of whether it’s faux or the real deal, my wardrobe is full of the stuff – from skirts to leggings, jackets to joggers, I’m a serial leather horder…

beige booties: primark | bag: louis vuitton | jewellery: new look

My only qualm with leather? I never find this fabric to be particularly comfortable – and I’m a big lover of feeling comfy. However, with a looser overall fit, a leather jogger is the perfect solution.

I’ve been after a pair of leather jogging bottoms for absolutely ages, so when I saw these elasticated, drawstring pair on Asos, I just had to snap them up.

I’m loving polo necks this winter, and whilst they remind me of my old hideous school uniform, they’re a pretty easy staple to throw on. This grey marl polo is from Asos, and is super comfortable and lightweight.

The real star of the show for me here is this real suede jacket from Mango. This was in the sale for £60, and was a definite impulse buy for me – I never find that leather or suede cropped jackets suit me very well, as I’m quite short and (let’s face it) pretty broad. However, the softness of this jacket swayed me – big apologies to my bank account…

My Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote is – quite literally – never full. It’s enormous, but that’s why I love it. I wore this look to work, and Louis is my trusty work tote – if you look inside, there’s probably a half eaten sandwich in there, a spare jacket, and half my makeup bag. (I never said my life was glamorous).


All my bits of jewellery – which, admittedly, are pretty hard to see in these photos due to the super low sunshine – are from New Look. I always think New Look are great for cheap and cheerful bits and pieces, and these gold (ahem) hoops and chain are no exception.

Finally, these Primark booties are such a great buy. In faux suede, these babies cost a whopping ten pounds and are seriously comfortable. They had them in black too, and I’m really regretting not buying both – I love how they go slightly higher up the leg than classic ankle boots.
