Okay, I know this is a bit of luxury. Well, a lot of a luxury actually, but imagine owning this gorgeous shoulder bag from the undisputed Queen of handbag design.

J Brand White Maria Skinny Jeans

J Brand is one of my favourite jeans designers (Current Elliott is my another) and these J Brand babies are perfect for teaming with either plains or prints. High waisted, they are more flattering for certain figures than low waisted jeans.

The length of these jeans is 29.5″, making them ankle crops if you’re a tall girl, or just about full length if you’re under about 5’4″. They’re a nice skinny fit, with a 10″ leg opening.

Leather Dresses, Jackets, Coats, Trousers and Shoes for SS 2013 at my-wardrobe.com

Leather is always popular for both day and evening wear, and it’s a key fabric for the Spring Summer 2013 season. Everything from formal leather shoes to funky, brightly coloured leather jackets are “on trend” this season and the choice is amazing.

Here are some of my favourite items:

Red Valentino Black Leather Dress

This dress, pictured left, is a cute and girly yet edgy modern dress. It has femininity in abundance, thanks to the pretty bows which adorn each of the front pockets, yet the leather material immediately ramps up the glamour a few notches. It’s easy to accessorise with a matching black leather clutch and court shoes.

Joseph Leather and Fabric Leggings Joseph Leather and Fabric Leggings

Joseph Leather and Fabric Leggings

If you prefer to wear trousers to a dress, take a look at this sumptuous pair of black leather and gabardine leggings by Joseph. Skinny all the way down your lovely legs, these trousers provide a classic yet chic look that will endure long past the end of this season, perfect for day wear and cocktail hour. Simply complete the look with a bright jumper or silk top teamed with a clutch and a pair of vertiginous heels.

Leather trousers are also available from Sara Berman (exclusively), J Brand, Hudson, Acne, Helmut Lang and Bruuns Bazaar, so there is lots of choice.

Camilla Skovgaard Black and White Peep Toe Shoe Boots Camilla Skovgaard Black and White Peep Toe Shoe Boots

Camilla Skovgaard Black and White Peep Toe Shoe Boots

Camilla Skovgaard is a designer who is celebrated for her innovative and funky shoe designs, and these booties in monochrome leather are particularly eye catching. In a shoe boot style, without fastenings but with an open toe, they are ideal for both work or weekend wear, with their slim stiletto heels and a pleasing curved aesthetic. They also make you nice and tall, with high heels and balancing platform sole.

The style name of these shoes is “Prey”. It should be “Pray”, as I’m praying someone will buy me a pair.

Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress, Acne Light Blue Crop Suede Jacket and Diane Von Furstenberg Jujette Yellow Sandals

Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress

This look is another look from my-wardrobe.com (they have  some gorgeous new season items) and is suited to day or evening wear. Instead of being a dress, bag and shoes, this look is dress, jacket and shoes. Well, they say a change is as good as a rest and the gorgeous jacket below needed a mention. But more about that later…

Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress

This dress, in the bright new season colours of aqua and lime green, is made from a silk blend jacquard fabric, and features cut out details to the side, to reveal just a glimpse of waist.

The dress is sleeveless with a round neck and fastens with an exposed zip fastening at the back. It is short, falling to about mid thigh. This particular colourway of the dress is exclusive to my-wardrobe.

This dress is part of Richard Nicoll’s pre-spring collection, and it’s a cute and flirty dress. There is actually a double split in the skirt at front of the dress.

Acne Light Blue Suede Biker Acne Light Blue Suede Biker

Acne Light Blue Crop Suede Jacket

Acne are well known for their leather and suede biker jackets, and the new season version is a confection in light blue suede.

The style name is “Mape”.

Cropped, the jacket has everything you would look for in a biker jacket – lots of zips, stud fastenings and chunky silver tone hardare throughout. Waist length, the jacket is cinched with an attached buckled belt and it features epaulettes and a notch lapel. The front has an asymmetrical zip fastening.

Other features include zip fastening cuffs, pleating to both sides at the back and an internal button fastening.

This jacket is unusual due to its colour, and looks certain to top the wish lists of style mavens everywhere this spring / summer. Certainly, it’s a cool look to reflect the design ethos of the Scandinavian designers, and the butter soft suede will make you want to wear it again and again. For this look, I’ve teamed it with the Richard Nicolls dress, but it would look equally good teamed with your favourite designer jeans too, adding style to any off duty ensemble. It also looks good teamed with prints and florals.

With there slim and elegant stiletto heels and not too wide platform, the shoes feature a python  snake print yellow leather upper with a gold coloured ankle fastening buckle. The shoes have three straps – one around the ankle, one asymmetrically across the forefoot and one across the toes.

The colour is perfect for the new season, and these candy colours of yellow, blue and green look so young and fresh when teamed together. They will add a touch of sophistication to any pretty summer frock.
