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?

    I can't wait to pull out my wool cape this winter, now that I have read your post! =) I hadn't thought to pair with a plaid skirt, but that is a really good idea!
