Coloured Leather

Ok! so we have written plenty within the last few months about how dark coloured leather is set to be huge next season. But for the here and now, things are a little bit (ok a lot) more colourful. Teaming perfectly with the whole dazzle trend, it's time to get into some bright metallic leather.

As per usual, we have styled up some outfits so that you may pull off this look in a foolproof way. We have a casual ensemble, followed by our dressier option, and lastly a more weather appropriate option. All links and products are completely shop-able as usual, and we have added some notes to help you.

1 - Casual colour

A super easy look for the weekend. We love this stunning faux leather red jacket. We would pair back something this bold with a neutral colour palette, and have opted for some super cool cropped trousers and a classic black roll neck jumper for warmth. Just throw on your white sneakers and add a quirky little bag and you're good to go.

2 - Dress up jewel colours

Next up we have this glam gold leather mini skirt which will look fab paired with this striped jumper tucked in. It adds a cool contrast to the outfit. Finish with these beautiful YSL Saint Laurent boots, a clutch and a swipe of red lippy. Happy holiday season outfit.

3 - Wrap up.

Lastly, you can dress up as a super trendy Santa Claus! With this red leather aviator jacket, paired with the black boots and a nice and warm chunky knit dress, you will be sure to make a seasonal statement. Add in this edgy but classic Saint Laurent bag to top it all off.

Top Wedding Dress Designers

Pynck Top 3 Bridal designers

Every girl, I'm sure, dreams of her wedding dress. And hats off to the designers who year after year provide stunning pieces that we can all fantasise about, so we have a clear idea of what we will want on the day. With a huge offering, it can sometimes be quite daunting to find the right place to start looking. So we have curated a list of our favourite wedding dress designers to help you on your way to bridal dress heaven.

For a winter wedding...


We are so in love with Jenny Packham at the moment for the stunning use of embellishment. For a winter wedding, the added glistening and heavy embroidery is ideal. Although there are more simple gowns available which would look beautiful styled with some faux fur and her exquisite jewellery designs.

For a quiet wedding...

For those intimate occasions, it's perfect to go for something a little more understated, but still elegant and show-stopping. Vera Wang,offer a fabulous collection of simple yet chic dresses that will do just the job. The designer also has more intricate and bold designs if that is what you are looking for.

For a Summer Wedding...


For the summer, a boho inspired dress is always going to be a winner. Sassi Holford offer some amazing dresses, in particular the Constance dress. Paired with floral hair jewels this would be the perfect summer wedding look.
