Skinny Leather Pants

Skinny leather pants are a great addition to any closet because doesn’t matter the occasion they can be your safe bet every time.

I want to straight some things out from the beginning: no matter how chic, fabulous, elegant the leather pants are, if the styling goes wrong, you just made them to look cheap and ridiculous… my advice to avoid this would be to pay a little extra attention when pairing them.

We are lucky… the days when the leather pants were considered appropriate only for a rock-chick or biker, are loooooooong gone.

When winter comes, I basically live in my leather pants. I think the skinny leather pants, in particular,  work best for me… they are more polished and they give me endless options when I want to play with shapes.

For today’s post I give 3 options of styling the same pair of skinny leather pants. They are all really different so you can try what fits your personality best.

First look is more “elegant-sexy-sophisticated”… and this vibe  was totally given by the choice of the shoes:  stiletto pumps. Keep your accessories to a minimum and you will exude trendiness and luxe.

Ankle boots and leather pants are by default some sort of uniform, but when you add an oversized sweater and coat … that sound like MY winter uniform.

For the last outfit, I chose a very casual/comfy look. The sneakers and the “unusual” jacket made the entire look more of an urban-chic-street style.

Pleats obsession – suede pleated skirt

There is no secret how much I love a nice and girly pleated skirt. Mini or midi, skinny knife pleats or wide paneled pleats, they are my favorite.

It is for sure the fact that they are not longer anymore just for preppy school girls.

They are super on trend and we’ve seen them paired with unexpected textures, or items such as moto jackets, oversized sweaters or even hoodies.

I think suede it is a very appropriate fabric for fall or winter because it looks great worn with leggings or opaque tights,

Styling mini skirts can be tricky, especially because you don’t wanna look tacky. Try to mix it with a shirt, a simple tee or an oversized sweater.

Usually a pleated skirt gives you a girly girl look. If you don’t want to achieve that look, throw a pair of combat boots and you’ll have the perfect mix between girly and tomboy.

Even though it is a very short skirt, this one has like a pair of shorts under. I like that a lot because you can move comfortably without worrying that you might show your tush by mistake.

The sweater that I’m wearing today it is one of my favorites too. It’s that piece that can make any simple outfit to pop up. The huge sequins are that little extra extra that your outfit needs.

One dress, 2 different looks

One dress two different looks?

Today’s post is about how to use the same piece (in this case the dress) and integrate it in two different outfits.

I wrote about slip dresses before here and what I like the most about them is that you can put together a super stylish outfit and you’ll look like you didn’t try hard at all.

For today’s post I used this super cute asymmetric slip dress to create two separate looks.

For the first look I decided to throw over the dress a fluffy and cozy pullover. I loved how it looks with the slinky slip dress underneath. As a result, I believe that the contrast between the materials was the key for this styling. In conclusion, the only requirement that’s left, it was to add a pair of booties to finish the look.

For the second look, I replaced the sweater with a biker jacket.First of all, I’m not a big fan of wearing high heels with my slip dresses, because I like to dress them down a little. That is the reason why I choose to keep the booties for the second look too.

In addition, I chose this silver biker jacket, because I really like the effect that was created together with the shimmery of the dress.
