White leathers | Boohoo boutique

White leather

It's one thing admiring white leather on Pinterest, but actually pulling it off in person can be tricky. I'm obsessed with leather so it was a no brainer to add this gorgeous white jacket with laser cut sleeves, kindly gifted by Boohoo, to my collection. I had no problems in choosing a piece from the new Boutique collection, but what to wear it with was a challenge!

Y'know when you try something out for the first time and you feel a little nervous when you wear it out for the first time? Well I'm notoriously shy when it comes to new trends, and I was expecting to feel mildly uncomfortable in white, but I was pleasantly surprised! Inspired by this and this, I kept it simple with a white shirt, blood red cropped trousers and my trusty white high tops. I remember reading somewhere that if you are worried about looking "too much", look in the mirror and remove what catches your eye first. It's good tip, and in this case I took off a big chunky necklace - I think the simplicity made it easy to put together.

What do you think guys? Would you try white leather?

I'm feeling a little fragile today after a boozy social for work yesterday afternoon, so I'm having a quiet one today. The boy is going to fetch me a dominos later, and I plan on curling up and checking out all of your blog posts from this week. Leave me your links in the comments!

  2. Oh wow, I love that jacket!! I'm obsessed with white clothing too and this is just perfect! I have a white blazer which I love but sometimes it feels a little formal, this would be much easier to wear dressed up or down. If only I wasn't on a spending ban...

  11. I rather like this on you Claire! And I'm also quite fond of the detailing on the sleeves. However I don't think my paley white face would allow me to pull it off as well as you do.
