Probably you remember my split opinion about patent leather from this trend report last year already. But as I already bought a patent leather skirt back then and it is still one of my favorite pieces, I though that it would be time to invest in another item as well. As jackets and coats don’t really got my attention, I ordered these pants the other day. And surprisingly, I fell in love immediately! It just adds the perfect amount of coolness to a rather simple or basic look. Furthermore, it is an eye catcher piece which is effortlessly styled. Whether it is a classic shirt or a basic hoodie: there are millions way I would like to style the patent leather pants. Would there be a No-Go for you, how you would never style patent leather?

Another trend which has been ongoing for a while and probably won’t leave too soon are volants and ruffles. I already own quite some pieces with statements sleeves with ruffles or sweaters with volants. Today’s outfit has been quite spontaneous. And as I already got on my patent leather pants with fishnet socks and sneakers, I wanted to add a more preppy top. This is how I ended up with the volants shirt, which is quite voluminous. Consequently, the shooting in windy Berlin wasn’t as easy as expected. 😉
