I’ve teamed up with French Connection, one of my favourite brands, to bring you a get the look post. I’ve chosen two of my outfits which feature my French Connection Faux Leather Athena Jacket and found pieces online at their website to mimic the look, so you can get something similar if you like it! There’s always so many pieces that I want to buy on their website and right now they are having a sale, so that’s not so great for my bank balance! There’s two things in particular that I want, which I have mentioned below, so I’m hoping they might make their way to my wardrobe soon! I hope you like this post and I would love to know which of these two outfits you like the most! Comment and let me know!
Black Skinny Jeans & Leather Jacket
Jeans | Jacket | Shirt | Bag | Shoes | Necklace | Ring
I love wearing black skinny jeans with a black leather jacket, but jazzing up the combination with some colour. This outfit above where I paired the French Connection Athena leather jacket with the Topshop plaid shirt and pink Cambridge Satchel is definitely a combination I like to wear often, not necessarily the same pieces, but something similar. I have found some great alternatives on the French Connection website, so you can get a similar look!
Dress | Jacket | Shoes | Bracelet | Watch | Lipstick
This outfit that I wore with the blue floral dress and French Connection Athena leather jacket is one that I love. It’s different to what I would usually wear and I think that’s what makes me like it so much. Again, I have recreated it with pieces that I found on their website, so you can get a similar outfit to this, just slightly more classy.
Below, I’ve also included my top sale picks! They always have a fantastic sale as their discounts are massive, so I’ve chosen the best pieces and shared them with you below! I adore that burgundy coat, black varsity jacket and ombre throw! They are gorgeous! Some of the dresses are amazing too! What do you like the most and did you like this post?
Thanks for the tip! They have some beautiful pieces on their site! And I love the look with the Cambridge satchel 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂

I love both of those looks! I think the jeans one is my favorite, but the dress is so close behind it! Great way to show two completely different looks using one item!
Thanks Beth! So glad you liked it!
Love both looks, but especially the floral dress and leather jacket. I love the edge mixed with feminine. So perfect for chilly summer nights!!

Love the first outfit! It’s got a touch of 90’s ginge to it! Has anyone ever told you that you look like Taylor swift?! I think it’s your hair! People always tell me a look like her, but I don’t see it at all!

I’m really glad you liked it so much!
Very nice outfits my dear !

Hi. What size did you get the leather jacket in? UK 8? Would that be size Small or XS (I’m in the US). Thanks 🙂
Hi 🙂 yes, UK 8 which is equal to a US 4. I would say it was probably an XS. Hope that helps!
That helps, thank you. I’m 4 feet 9 inches tall but with a large bust so I’m thinking about getting US 4 I just hope the sleeves aren’t too long or anything!
I’m 5ft 5 and I do have quite long arms, they fit at my wrists. Hopefully it’s ok for you! It’s a great jacket!
