Meet Our Spotlight
We've had a love/hate relationship when it comes to leather. Memories of ill-fitting trousers, sweaty tops and visions of bad-gal Sandy from Grease come to mind. But for A/W'12 leather is back with a stylish a vengeance. Take a look at this week's Spotlight, Lucy of Lovely By Lucy, she works leather into her modern sports-luxe style with ease - it's no wonder she won Fashion Finder's Leather Looks competition. Her daily outfit picks are a 'how-to' for wearing leather this season; from the humble biker jacket to leather skinny fits, take note for sartorial success.
Leather Track Pants
Street style really inspires me to go a little bolder with my fashion choices. I was so obsessed with this Balenciaga tee that I just had to get it and I had been looking for a sports luxe inspired pair of leather trousers, so I was thrilled to find a budget friendly pair on ASOS. The leather track pants and shoes are definitely inspired by Céline’s A/W collection; I love to find my own versions of trends and shape them into my own style.

ASOS Funnel Neck Sweatshirt: This sweatshirt combines a lot of elements I love: rich colour, neoprene and oversized structure. I’m totally embracing structured this season.
ASOS Leopard Print Trackpants: I love the sports luxe trend and the print on these trackpants is subtle. They're both comfy and super stylish - what's better than that?
ASOS Tweed Boiler Jumpsuit: I can’t get over this super cool tweed jumpsuit; I feel like it’s all about statement pieces this season and there’s no doubt about this being one.

Q & A:
What are your favourite trends for A/W’12?
My absolute favourite trend is sports luxe because it fits my style; I love combining comfortable sportswear with something chic like a pair of heels. I also like leather for A/W; I love how it can be upgraded instantly.
What are your wardrobe workhorses?
I could not live without trainers, definitely! They’re just so comfy and I love how they’re on-trend right now, so it's OK to wear them with anything. I always try to combine comfort with fashion which really works for me.
How would your friends describe your style?
I usually wear sporty looks; I would wear a pencil skirt with trainers or sporty trousers with heels. One of my blog readers once called me the 'Queen of Sporty Chic' which is such a great compliment.
Fave fashion reads?
I really admire Scandinavian style, it seems like they can throw on jeans and a t-shirt and look totally fashionable. I'm very inspired by their style, so I mostly read Scandinavian blogs. Some of my favourites include; Columbine, Hanna and Camille.
