As aforementioned in a previous post, I am expanding my monthly Wishlists posts and creating more specialised posts for A/W’13. Up first is my top burgundy picks, with an emphasis on the key trend, burgundy leather.

Burgundy leather, when styled well, can make for a very chic outfit. It’s a luxe fabric and makes for a very stylish alternative to black leather. Last year I had two key burgundy leather skirts, a mini and a midi pencil skirt, and they were definitely two of my favourite pieces from A/W’12. This year burgundy leather is still a key trend and a must-have in everyones wardrobes. This skater skirt from Miss Selfridge is a gorgeous piece, it actually looks a little darker online but I have seen it in-store and its a beautiful piece. I also chose a pencil skirt from Missguided which is a perfect piece to wear a with crop top and not show too much. This leather from Forever 21 and at €14.99 it is a wardrobe necessity!

Oversized leather trousers are a huge trend this A/W season and Rihanna has created the perfect A/W leather trousers in this gorgeous shade which are available from River Island. I have a burgundy leather bag from last year which I will certainly be using a lot this Winter, it goes with everything and adds colour to a glum outfit. This Michael Kors bag would be every girls dream this season. Heels are also a great way to add burgundy into your outfit, a splash of a beautiful colour but yet effortless to wear.

Until next time,
