While fashion is about looking stylish, it’s also about having fun ladies. I enjoy the challenge of combining two items that you wouldn’t expect to work together, but they in fact beautifully complement each other. Take, for instance, the skirt and jacket I’m featuring here. The skirt is feminine and playful, whilst the leather jacket is more edgy. However, combining the two gives a ‘pretty’ look, a street style edge.

Skirt

Don’t be under the impression that you can only wear skirts in summer. The gorgeous skirt I’m wearing from Jetlag Poetry is the perfect winter piece with its long length and playful pattern, and is a fantastic alternative to wearing trousers.

Jacket

The black biker leather jacket is from my own wardrobe and one I’ve had for more than 10 years. It’s a classic piece that will never go out of fashion, and I always bring it out for winter.

Bag

The lovely bag is from Queue Shoes and gives a fabulous pop of colour to the black and white items. A bright bag is a great way to brighten up a neutral outfit.

Shirt

The stylish slogan shirt from Foschini is a great, simple statement item to finish off the outfit. Its simplicity doesn’t pull away from the leather jacket or skirt, and the slogan works well with the street style edge look.

Earrings

The beautiful earrings are from Flaunt and a wonderful accessory to tie in the ‘pretty’ street style edge look.
