Last week, I had the absolute pleasure of hosting two fashion workshops for retailer Myer.

I was tasked with the role of translating key Autumn Winter trends (as see on the runway), to easy-to-wear, everyday street style.

The key themes I worked with were monochrome, leather, lady in red and winter floral. All set to take centre-stage this A/W season here in Australia.

The best thing I found, when pulling together each look, was that in a multi-brand retailer, like Myer, you have every opportunity to interpret key trends to suit a range of different styles and most importantly budgets.

I love the fact that I can pick up a key designer piece, like a Balmain or Ellery leather jacket, and team it back with a great affordable pair of jeans and a tee, all under one roof. Outfit complete.

A big thank you to everyone who attended the workshops, It was lovely to meet some of my Melbourne readers, and a special thanks to Myer for giving me the chance to share my key season styles.

Ways to wear: Leather jacket

In keeping with my last post, I thought it would be helpful to demonstrate ways to wear the leather jacket.

My tip: Add feminine touches to the leather jacket for a polished and pretty look. Team the jacket with pastels or floral prints and experiment with different sleeve lengths.

Alternatively add a denim mini, tights and ankle boots to achieve a rock inspired look.


Pick of the week: Leather jacket

The trusty leather jacket is always a fashion statement and a piece that you will get a lot of wear out of. So for this week’s pick of the week I’ve tried to track down the best online leather buys.

women's fashion leather jacket @ friendinfashionMy tip: Keep an eye out at local thrift shops and markets for your leather jacket. Not only will you save significantly – you will also have a truly unique vintage piece.

Faux leather is also another more affordable option. Many stores now feature some good quality faux leather alternatives which will not only save you money, but also offer a ‘greener’ buying choice.

If you are searching for a leather jacket that won’t date as quickly, stick to a simple design and colour. If you are shopping for a jacket to last you only a couple of seasons, you can afford to pick up pieces with interesting details like ruffles or fringing.
