BERSHKA BABE

I first fell in love with Bershka many years ago when I used to visit Barcelona and I've been a huge fan of its great fashion and low prices ever since! If I'm visiting London for shopping purposes, I love to treat myself to a few pieces from Bershka (unfortunately, their only UK stores are London and Brighton based) so I like to make the most of my visit. FYI - fortunately for us Northern folk, Bershka is also very much available online! During this recent Bershka haul, I picked out this gorgeous red faux shearling biker jacket in size XS, which I am absolutely in love with the colour. It's super warm, being faux fur lined and the colour is so vibrant, definitely making it a statement winter jacket. For me, finding high waisted petite trousers which fit snug around the waist is really difficult! I was so surprised that these gorgeous jogging trousers, not only fit my waist perfectly (they are elasticated around the back), but also fit pretty well, length wise, considering they're not actually petite - FYI - I bought a size XS. The material of the trousers is really soft and comfortable, making them the perfect everyday trouser, which can be dressed up or down for day and night.

As the biker jacket and jogging trousers are quite casual and urban, I wanted the rest of the outfit to follow suit. I paired a cobalt blue hoodie with the trousers, tucking it in to accentuate the high waist. I find cobalt blue a very striking colour and I feel it looks great against my skin tone (basically, not washing me out!). The hoodie also has cute flower detailing along the arms, which I think gives it a little extra something. I have been dying to feature these leopard print boots on my blog and I thought there is no better outfit than this Bershka one - for anyone who doesn't know, I adore leopard print! I love everything about the boots - from the actual leopard print and the velvet feel to the perfect daytime heel height. 

I love the entire aesthetics of this outfit - from the intense colour blocking, to the contrasting of materials and leopard print. To add extra colour and take the outfit from day to night, I swapped the leopard print boots for a pair of super high, bright orange heels. I love this simple transformation and especially love the striking contrast between the red, cobalt blue and orange.
