I’ve always been glamorous and loved shopping and clothes, but 2013 was the year I developed a serious interest in fashion and trends after a brief stint working in a retail store. I tend to wear what I want- and never felt the need to be bang on trend every season, but last year I definitely learned to pay more attention or you miss out on all the great pieces. For example, crop tops have been around for years but I did not own one until the Summer of 2013. I just assumed one would never look good on me- little did I know when teamed with a midi skirt, a crop top can create a sexy but sophisticated look perfect for a night out!

This is just one of the trends that I loved last year- here are some others.
LEATHER AND FUR
Now these are two wardrobe essentials I'll be taking with me into 2014 and beyond. There's nothing I love more than a big, fluffy, (faux) furry jacket to help me survive the bitter cold British weather and to keep me looking glamorous. Add a dash of red lipstick and you can't go wrong. A touch of leather can give any outfit an edgy feel and this Winter it was all about the edge! Mixing the two became popular on the high street and I saw many women rocking fur jackets with leather sleeves. Celeb fans of leather include Kimye, who were rarely seen without some sort of leather attire back at the beginning of the year.
