My love for leather jacket started during my college years. I went through a phase of wearing all black, especially a black leather jacket with black combat boots. This grunge look made me feel tough and gave me the confidence boost I was lacking in my teen years.
Recently I have been keen to revive wearing my black leather jacket and black boots by adding some personality. I thought what better way than wearing my black leather jacket and black boots with a different colour skirt. Over the past few months, I have been searching for a long red and black tartan skirt. As you can see in the above outfit edit, I have found the skirt and I have created an amazing, edgy look. I wanted the skirt to stand out and I did this by keeping everything else black.

To compliment the look I decided to colour coordinate the makeup with the outfit. By wearing Rimmel London black eyeshadow and Rimmel London extra super lash mascara defines the eyes and makes them look bigger. I recommend union jack black, Butter London nail lacquer as it is a high pigmented and vitamin rich nail polish, which gives the nails a stronger and a healthier look. Finally, not forgetting the lips, I suggest the Maybelline vivid matte liquid lipstick in the shade red. This will brighten up the face and give a female touch to the entire outfit. You can buy all the below makeup online at your local Superdrug store or Boots store.
I love it! I do say myself this outfit totally slayed! 😉
