Denim and Leather | F&F


I'll admit it, leather t-shirts are those occasional trends which make my boyfriend take one look at me, frown, shake his head, and sigh "oh fashion". Oh fashion indeed. But I will take his scorn and proudly carry on as I think this might be my new favourite way to wear leather.

Not that leather should be the focus of this post at all! I'm not usually one to wear all one brand, but when Tesco F&F challenged me to style an outfit around a piece from their new denim collection I couldn't help but give it a go!


I chose their amusingly titled "bum booster" skinny jeans to work with, which are essentially the wonderbra of the derrière world. You can tell much more side on, but they are high waisted, and fitted to give a bit of an uplift, perfect for a gal like me with absolutely no tush whatsoever!

You can put skinny jeans with anything and they're a staple in my wardrobe, so I teamed them with this incredible biker jacket and leather-look t-shirt. I love the detailing of the jacket with the cuffs and zips, and I'd definitely advise getting it in a size smaller than you reckon - this is an 8 and means the arms are slim while still looking boxy and boyish. With my trusty platform heels from Next finishing off the look (similar here), I think this is my ideal Autumnal outfit.

Are you a fan of F&F? What are your denim staples?


  1. I really want to get a leather t shirt, they're so versatile! You look gorgeous. I've never really bought anything from F&F apart from basic t shirts etc, but they've always worked for me! I'll definitely have to try a few pieces xo

  2. Love the way this outfit has been put together! The biker jacket looks lovely on you!

  3. Awooo! Jade also has this jacket too and it looks awesome on both of you. such a nice colour!

  5. You look lovely! :) My denim staple is always a pair of skinny jeans, I like how they can be so casual but you can dress them up to - perfect lazy girl piece! Haha.

  6. You are such a babe! I adore this outfit, and I cannot take my eyes off of that jacket. It's such a nice colour and cut. I really need to invest in a pair of black skinnies. Shockingly, I don't own any!

  7. That royal blue is incredible, also high waisted jeans, they never need yanking up right! so perfect.


  8. Bum boosters, what the cheeks!? I've seen F&F's new menswear collection and it's pretty impressive you know. Cheers for the comment on the trainers, sneaks are the best

  9. That jacket is amazing, I'm so shocked its Tesco! It's such a great shade of blue, great choice!

  10. The leather t shirt seems to be my favourite way of wearing leather, it seems a lot more versatile than leather trousers at least. Gorgeous pairing with the jacket, the blue is so vibrant!

  11. So much love for this outfit. The pop of colour is delicious.
