Looking back, when I was younger – I was always trying to avoid wearing leather, as I thought it would make me look more serious and older. Now, that I’m on the ‘wrong side of my twenties’ I don’t have to worry about it anymore, as I’m already, lets say – grown up. 😉 Leather may make you appear a bit more mature, but hey – how much more elegant and distinguished at the same time!
I was looking for a classic black trench coat, which is one of the pieces that will never fail you, and should be found in almost every woman’s wardrobe. Especially if you are a professional, or simply have a busy social life (as it’s a piece appropriate for nearly every occasion, and will always make you appear as well dressed). This particular coat I had to chase the whole way down to Poland (I luckily found it in the store on my trip home, after I failed to buy it here before my size was sold out!), but it was well worth it! It’s a classic straight, a bit manly shape, but the leather inserts and thick zips make it look modern and.. bold! Accessorized with some funky gloves and scarf, or a nice bag, and I can manage to not only still look my age ( and not a tad older), but also have some of my personality come through. 🙂
