I was asked by a reader to help her with some outfit inspiration and at Catwalkschoolgates we are delighted to help, it gives us a valid excuse to cruise all our favourite websites!

So Gemma had found an amazing pair of leather look  leggings from LK Bennett and the brief was together an outfit that she could dance the night away in in super trendy Hoxton .

I have looked at countless jackets the Spring and the best one out there is this Derek Lam one available from Luxe Layers, it is a cross between a blazer and a biker so gives that edge for an evening out.

I love the way it is fitted at the back and drapes so well. I cannot recommend this piece highly enough.  The material is beautiful and this is something you can combine with so many items in your wardrobe.

I adore the silk shirt from Aloe as the silk is sublime, heavy and with such a lustre and the bell sleeves and the pockets give it a hip edge. As an alternative when the weather gets warmer I have added this vest from H&M.

With leather I would always recommend a different fabric for the shoes, such as suede and these shoes by Franceso Russo are real show stoppers , available at My Theresa and beat a Jimmy Choo or a Louboutin hands down and are a statement heel with a classic feel.

I also love this Preen pair from Matches,  I have the red pair and they are super comfortable.

As the party is in Hoxton, I wanted Gemma to have something a bit fun so we added in this amazing clutch from ASOS

So I hope you all like this outfit and please feel free to submit any questions on something you are trying to find or style as we are delighted to help! Gemma send us a picture of what you do decide to wear.
