Ahoy there!

Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mod.

Being a Mod at heart,with a penchant for biker-style leather, there was only one option for what I’d wear for a day trip to Brighton last weekend. I’d have to go with two outfits. A Fred Perry jumper and a Topshop leather biker jacket.

Trouser-wise, that was a no-brainer; a pair of royal blue, shiny, sparkly skin-tight leggings – which were, to my delight, renamed mermaid trousers by a fabulously camp fellow outside an ‘adult store’. I’ll go with that, mermaid trousers, at the  seaside  is too perfect.

Stripes have this really wicked way of making a look seem more bright and vibrant even if they’re black and white stripes. Monochrome can look a bit uniform like, but add stripes, leather (or pleather) and platform boots and monochrome becomes more chilled out. The sleeveless Primark blouse has a clever double collar detail, the underneath collar is black to match the placket (the bit where the buttons go) and the top collar is white to march the shirt and tie-in the whole piece. Without the second white collar, the black detail would look a little detached and awkward.

The River Island leather-look leggings are the easy to wear and the Korky’s Lita-style boots are really high but really easy to wear.
