My Leather Obsession Continues- New Look Black Coated High Waisted Skinny Jeans

I've always liked leather, but rarely been able to find leather clothing that fitted properly. The last couple of years I've started building up a collection of faux leather clothes as I try to be true to my vegetarianism and not use real leather as the faux leather these days are amazing.

One proof are these beautiful and extremely comfortable black coated high waisted jeans from New Look. I saw them on the website and fell in love and I'm so glad I bought them as they are gorgeous in real life. The photos doesn't do them justice!!

 The jeans are super skinny, but unfortunately too long in the leg for me. Nothing new there since I'm 5'6, but I could just have them turned up. High waist, with three buttons and a zip, keeps my tummy in control which I love as I'm not worried they will fall down.

 These are coated rather than faux leather, but they do have the leather look and are really true black in colour. These jeans are great at using with a casual style as I've done here or you can easily dress them up with a longline cami and blazer for a girls night out.

 I wore these jeans when I went out for lunch with the lovely Rebs from Sullen Hearts a couple of weeks back. We hadn't seen each other for ages and she has family down here in Surrey so we went out for a pub lunch together to catch up and eat some nice food. It was so nice to see her again!!!

 I teamed them with my stripey jumper from F&F and faux suede gilet from Boohoo* that i reviewed HERE and my favourite ankle boots from New Look (last years). I think it is a good look for a lunch with friends, casual but yet stylish.

 Close up of the trousers. Aren't they gorgeous? They are currently on sale HERE for £18.74 so grab yourself a bargain!!! 

Happy!!! Being over 40 doesn't stop me from wearing leather trousers as I am #plus40fabulous and can wear whatever I want. 

 I'm wearing a size 22 which was big enough for me. I first ordered them in size 24 in case they were small fitted, but I had to send them back and swap for a smaller size as they were too big. So good sizing there New Look.

I've already used these a lot and I'm going to wear them for a more festive occasion soon with a sparkly top and pretty shoes. I'm sure I will post photos of it here, so keep an eye out for them if you liked these jeans.

Do you like leather? If so what do you like about it and if not what do you dislike about it?


  1. I didn't see your trousers at all at lunch so it's nice to see them now! They look fab

  2. You look absolutely terrific! These trousers are fantastic on you. I remember the awful faux leathers of the 90s, which where shiny and sweaty and just all round horrible. So good to see more and more high quality faux leather options on the market.

  3. I love the dramatic light in these photos, gorgeous setting winter sun! Those trousers are gorgeous too, such a great alternative to skinny denim jeans, you look lovely. You're right about faux leather being amazing these days, it's definitely come on leaps and bounds. xx
