Bertrand Ash - Zara Leather Jacket, Devred White Work Shirt, Zara Black Wax Skinny Trousers, Grindlers Cowboy Boots, Vintage Briefcase - Ready for Design

As part of my adventures into life at UNI doing Fashion, i decided to update my looks when I can. This was my first properly coordinated outfit of the term, with a consistent colour pallet and a theme suitable for a working and learning environment, but with a playful twist.

The jacket is part of my usual attire, and I pair it with everything from jogging bottoms to dinner shirts. It is a statement piece of my wardrobe for this year, as biker jackets have boomed in the shops this autumn, however I bought mine from Zara Man's winter collection 2011.

I like to include a sprinkle of designer touches, like the Burberry tie, as I feel that designer products lift the outfit, portraying a sophisticated image, which most of my friends say I encompass.

The Boots were an instantaneous addition as I was pondering on buying some for some time, but never found the right pair. Luckily, fait brought me to them and I could not say no. I think that they will become a trend for men later this year or certainly in the near future, following a studded, denim, rough and rugged modern cowboy.

The bag is simple, yet it practical and unique in it's vintage state. Bought from a charity shop for a steal of £3, it was a bargin and definitely serves its purpose well for this outfit following the colour palette of browns and black.

My Hair was dyed half blonde earlier this summer, but I grew most of it out, but I like the detail in the quiff as it lightens my appearance, as my natural colour is very dark. I went for a classic parting with Tresemme hairspray to fix in place to tie together my UNI outfit of the day.
