Black is back! Dark hues should fill your wardrobe this winter, as glamour goth makes its way into style. This look is all about leather, lace, and big shoes, but just keep it monochromatic! Add in some chunky silver bracelets and hairspray the fringe, and off you go! Rock this to parties, dinners, and you can work it into casual wear too with a leather jacket and some black denim jeans.
And – especially, a way to look good tonight for Halloween, match glam with scary, and have a stylish spook.
These are my ultimate 5 black items for this winter:
Lace Kimono, £40. Velvet Platform Shoes, £58. Biker Leatherette Jacket, £54.99. Fur Coat, £25. Rose Print Leggings, £10.
So this morning I’ve come across the clothing site ‘Nasty Gal’, and have fallen head over heels
in love with their range. Following a rather grunge style, they have a section of vintage clothes, full of vintage band shirts, leather jackets and bits; they’ve got clothes ranging from simple black shirts to floral Kimonos; and currently a shoe range by Jeffrey Campbell, utterly beautiful platform boots.
There are a crazy amount of these boots, different colours, materials, textures, and they’re all as beautiful as these ones. The only downside to this site however is, it is a little pricey, with these boots costing about $160 for a pair; but if you have the money check them out here.

These stand out pieces are all versatile, stylish, and contemporary, inspired by 90s grunge and California rock.
Go and have a gander, Nasty Gal.
BOY OF THE CITY.
Key items in this trend are thick belts, tailored trousers and quiffs!
London men, this look is hot on the trot at the moment. A particular masculinity boasts fashionista, yet the femininity is retained by pieces such as a high waist or a pair of wedges to complete the look. Ideal as a stylish work piece, or simple day-to-day wear; wear it with a briefcase type bag for a more office look, or a glammy black shoulder bag for a more casual look! Worn by the likes of Kate Moss, and seen in Topshop, Zara and more lookbooks!
Inspired by the teddy boys, mods, and workers.
