What to wear with leather shorts

The secret of leather shorts? They add an unexpected texture into an outfit! But they might feel tricky to pair - after all, the goal is to look classy, and leather can be a bit tricky to work with in that aspect. But fret not, I'm here to reveal to you, the ultimate secrets of styling leather shorts :D


1. Create textures and shades - add tights, or a fluffy sweater, or a jeans shirt, or a mix of all of those things! Leather in general wears great when paired with interesting textures.

2. Play up the prints - go for dots, florals, stripes... Whatever you have on hand! Generally smaller prints work better, but feel free to experiment.

I made a short video explaining the outfits:



Hope you will find it useful :). Cheers!

How to style : black and white printed pants


Printed pants are always an intimidating item to style - they are so bold on their own! But if you know the secret to styling them, you won't find it difficult at all.

Pants that have a black and white print go perfectly well with colors like coral and yellow. Add a top in soft orange, pink or coral color for the perfect summer getup. Add a yellow bag or blazer, and your outfit will look fun, yet super chic.

For a girly, but stylish outfit, pair mint and neutral colors with the pants. 

Or go for a neon accent. When styling neon it's good to block the printed pants with a white top, and top it all off with a statement necklace.

Is GOLD taking over? How to wear gold clothes?


I've been pinning for How To Match Clothes Colors Pinterest for well over a year now, and as much as last year finding outfits with gold color in them was rather hard, lately I am seeing a lot of outfits with gold clothes. And I love it! It's such an interesting spin on the classic trend to wear metallic. Gold always looks luxurious, and glamorous.

So how to wear gold clothes?

1. With jeans - infuse your daily casuals with some glitzines of gold. Recommended to be paired with nude heels.


2. Gold skirt and a grey shirt - perfect mix of sporty casual and glam.



3. With accent color: coral - match your gold piece with a white or neutral piece, and top it of with a juicy orange or coral accent piece.

4. Wear gold with nudes - for a soft and romantic look.


More interesting ideas can be found on the Pinterest board dedicated to outfits with gold color in them :).

Wear floral in the winter time


Florals are definitely a Springtime staple, but that does not mean you can't wear them in Winter season. Just swap the airy pastel dresses, for darker, more vibrant prints, match it with a pair of tights and a jacket, and you are ready to go.





I actually love the idea of wearing floral prints in the colder season - it's so much more unexpected and allows to add vibrancy to any outfit.

What do you think?

Cheers,

Matching military green and nude

Green and nude go together well. Why? The contrasting color for green is yellow. Tone them down, and you've got yourself military, greenish green and nude/beige coordination. Balance it out with an addition of white pieces, and orange-brown accessories.


Military green is one of my favorite colors for color matching. It brings a sense of masculinity into the outfit, and can be easily balanced with elegant or girly pieces.

Some great examples of this color combination:

How to wear purple or aubergine skinny jeans?

Purple is the quintessential fall color, that can easily be transitioned into winter. So if you still haven't invested in a pair of purple skinny jeans, I strongly encourage you to do so.

1. Style it with black and white - purple styles extremely well when matched with black and white geometric prints, or even color blocking. It's a perfect clothing item to match with a geometric print oversize cardigans, that became so popular recently.



2. Wear it with an animal print scarf - a plain shirt or sweater, and a huge scarf, and you are ready to go. All warm purple tones match very well with leopard print, so if you have any other accessories like bags or shoes with that wild print, it's gonna fit perfectly!


3. Style it with white and gold - go for a cool toned white shirt and absolutely overload your outfit with chunky gold pieces, and you will look FAB! The cool tone white will provide a contrast to the berry tone of your skinnies, while the gold will ad a warm accent. This is just perfect to wear that chunky gold statement necklace, that just does not seem to go with anything.


4. Wear it with camel / beige on top - this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but beige being the natural contrast color for purple and berry tones, is also a viable choice to match. Add a pop of other colors, like orange, red or light blue to bridge the gap on the color wheel for this combination.


5. Go for the classic faux leather jacket - a plain grey or white tee, and a leather jacket... You can't go wrong with that. But in this coordination the purple skinny jeans will add a playful and warm element, to balance the harshness of the jacket.


Hope this will be useful to you! Do share your styling ideas. If you snap a photo on instagram, please tag it #StylingPurpleSkinnyJeans so you can inspire others :D
