Fashion - It's a risky business

So if summer was all about jumpsuits and harem trousers, then winter is all about leather pants and shoulder pads. Now I'm not just highlighting two trends, I'm talking about fashion risks.

To clarify - those items of clothing that appear on catwalks and in designer stores that you just don't know if you could pull off. It's not like people really believe that they have to obey trends anymore but somehow the other day, quite subconsciously, I found myself drawn to some high street leather trousers. Now I know I'm not some stick figure supermodel and they won't look the same as me as they would on say..Kate Moss. But hey, if I could wear harem pants, maybe I could wear these....

Chances are that next year I'll look back and think - what was I wearing?? But for now, I want to be that girl who is brave enough to try something that most people won't. I truly believe that with a pair of black heels and rock t-shirt, that leather pants CAN and SHOULD be done. The same for shoulder pads! Even though I think people are slightly more willing to experiment with them.

Just think with all that volume and leather it won't be long until our high streets resemble a Balmain runway show ...
