Despite the rising temperatures we have been experiencing here in the UK these past few days, winter is far from over and I have a feeling the chilly air will be back which is great news, especially as I have expanded my winter wardrobe to an extent that I have yet to wear some of what I have purchased. Amongst these new purchases, faux fur and leather are definitely high in numbers, after all when I think of Winter 2015 and 2016 trends, I think fur and leather.
Seen all over the catwalks, including LFWend which I attended back in September (read here), it's undeniable that faux fur is having a moment this season. From furry scarves and all sorts of accessories to bold winter coats and gilets, there's plenty of options to help embrace your inner Yeti this winter. I personally find that there really is nothing better to wrap up in a warm fur coat on a cold winter's day.
Similarly, the leather look is the way forward this season despite being the luxe, classic fabric we love all year round. Whatever wardrobe staple you're after, making it leather instantly adds something extra to your outfit and the key to making it work is clashing textures, hence the faux fur and leather mixture in this outfit. What do you think?

Ankle Boots: New Look (similar here) // Crossbody Bag*: here // Watch*: Cluse (here)
This outfit is the epitome of Scandinavian style, it's chic and edgy yet perfectly laid back and simple. For daytime I went with ankle boots for comfort but for night outings I would happily swap them out for black heels or even OTK black boots, because if you know me you will know that I am all for OTK this winter.
What do you think about clashing these textures? Will you be at #LFWend in February?
Let me know below! Thanks for reading beauties and wishig everyone a great week ahead!
