I have a tendency to raise eyebrows when casually mentioning what I’ve recently bought with my boyfriend. More specifically, justifying the purchase of something he considers to be overly extravagant, but that I lovingly refer to as a ‘wardrobe staple’. Not at all limited to items like black heels, a well cut blazer, solid winter knit jumpers, silk blouses, and leather leggings, all of which I have recently found myself rather well stocked up on.

Pretty much on repeat are these leather leggings, which aside from being a dream to wear, are deliciously warm. The only drawback is probably the fact that they are leggings, rather than pants, which makes them ideal for layering untucked silk blouses and cozy sweaters, but no so ideal for tucking in a silk blouse and throwing on a blazer. Which, if my thoughts are anything to go by, you probably know where I’m going with this…

    Those leggings really do suit you so well and I always love the look of leather with chunky knits! Looking so hip in all black! 😉

    If this is what you wear in winter, I’m moving to Australia tomorrow! Agree with all your staples btw.

    Love the all-black look! Totally into all black this winter for some reason… You look so cosy too, the leather leggings suit you. As I’m sure the pants will too once you own them!

    You have no idea how much I love this outfit. It’s pretty much perfect for this winter but I love the subtle detailing in the jumper and the AMAZING charlotte olympia flats.

    I desperately need to invest in another pair of leather pants this winter, Your bf might not understand but I definitely do!

    Those leggings are absolutely an essential! They are the perfect fit on you and suit you so well. Worth every cent! I know what you mean about leggings versus pants but both definitely have benefits. Maybe you just need to add a pair of leather pants 🙂

    You are a knock out in this outfit!
    I also bought this knit, but it doesn’t look as good on me as it does on you – it drapes perfectly on you! I love it nonetheless.
