Evening guys, how're you all doing this fine Sunday night? Tonight I'm back talking fashion and I've got a pretty cool jacket to show you. Sadly the weather here in Manchester this weekend has been a total wash out, meaning the photographs are not as dry as I'd usually like them. No one looks good when slightly damp, but hey - I've tried my best with the weather not being on my side.

The jacket (even though a little wet) looks pretty sweet, don't you agree? To be fair I've been struggling seeing anything I like on the high-street or online recently which has been a little deflating. However, when this happens I always refer to searching for patterns or prints I know I'd love rather than actual pieces.

I always start the hunt by typing 'leopard print', 'western' or 'cowboy' in the search bar of places like ASOS and ZARA, then see what comes up in the filtered results. After searching for these styles it's then just the case of a lot of scrolling to see if anything takes the eye. Sometimes this doesn't pay off, or in this case it's come through with one killer jacket.

So what did I find? Well, It's a faux fur jacket with a thin pile meaning it's great to wear for the transition from winter to spring. I've styled it on top of an old black denim, which I think looks good as it definitely acts more a standard fit over-shirt. I bought the leopard print jacket in a small, but it's not the most tailored fit, it's more of a boxy shape. You may think it's a negative, however layered up in an outfit it's the perfect size.

Since this jacket has such a striking pattern (head across to my YouTube to see it close up and in more importantly in colour) the all black outfit counter balanced the power of the print. I also rolled my denim cuffs up and over the jacket to break the strong pattern even more in my outfit. Classic accessories followed, chains, belts, rings and hat - OBVIOUSLY.

The jacket has a classic silver zip up front and rounded collar. As you all know animal prints my bag and this jacket does not disappoint.

Thanks to CJ for braving the weather with me and taking my photographs. LEGEND! Take a closer look at the jacket by viewing this weeks YouTube video below.
