Style: Tartan Teasing


Keeping snuggled up and warm is my top priority of each coming day.  I've hunted the shops looking for my hottest buys to add to my AW12 wardrobe.  I spied two fabulous items I knew I had to have that are both from Next.  That is of course the Next Dark Grey Faux Fur Trim Cape and Next Tartan Skirt


I simply teamed the outfit with my Topshop Black leather boots with long slouch grey socks - I've left them cheekily poking out the boots so they work well with the cape.   With regards to the skirt I tucked my vest into the skirt and added a patent vintage skinny black belt.

I absolutely love the cape as it can work with anything in my AW12 wardrobe, and the tartan skirt is oozing warmth in the fabric and the colours.  I haven't gone over the top with the other parts of the outfit, I've merely gone for a simple black vest and put my hair in a messy bun.  I could of been a bit more daring and that is a possibility when I want to create another look, but for something that is aiming casual ... this is ideal.

What I'm wearing:  Skirt - Next Tartan Skirt - £32.00, Cape - Next Dark Grey Faux Fur Trim Cape - £24.00, Necklace - Topshop, Boots - Topshop, Socks - Primark, Vest - New Look

Have you found any must have items for AW12?
