Rule # 33: How to wear leather pants.

One of the pieces every woman should have in her wardrobe is a good pair of leather pants. Our celebs love them! I know it could be expensive but at least get a cheap one that looks good! And don't worry, it might be possible to see in the streets more "inexpensive" leather pants than expensive ones.

The first thing you have to think about is your body shape and the second thing you should know is what type leather pants you are going to find in the market such us straight shapes (the classic straight pants), skinny types (fit like skinny jeans) and cropped pants. 

Going back to the body shapes, unfortunately not every one looks good wearing the same type of leather pants. This means that a pair that looks amazing on your straight shaped colleague might not look good on your pear body figure. Unlike the other pants, leather pants don't conceal the imperfection or your figure, but emphasize and accentuate them even more

But how can you pair your leather (or leather look) pants with? Pay atention. Honestly, it might be easier if I start saying what not to wear your leather pants with

• Leather pants should not be combined with pieces with shimmery texture.

• Tops with a deep plunging neckline and other semi-transparent pieces should also be avoided.

• If you are not a rocker, then you really shouldn’t go for all-leather combinations.

Instead opt for this:

• Straight pants look great in business combinations. You may complete the image with a turtleneck or a top of light tone, topping it with a business style blazer. 

• For the casual style you may wear your leather pants matching them with sweatshirts and jackets. The shoes may be of any type, however, it’s better to opt for high heels for a better effect. If you like the country style you can also pair your leather pants with boots and a denim shirt. 

• For a night out or a party you may pair your leather pants with a corset or a silk top. This is probably the only case when you may pick a little bit of sparkling things using brighter accessories and jewelry.

• If you like to be bold and be the center of attention then match your leather pants with a trench with leopard prints which will create a really bold image. However, you need to be sure to pick black pants and match all that with a limited number of accessories.

Rule # 32: How to wear Wellington boots (rain/rubber boots).

Good morning my dears! 

It has been a long time since my last post but I'm back. In this part of the world seems the summer doesn't want to end even though it’s already November. The rain will come soon (even though we wish it wouldn’t) so we should be prepared for those rainy and grey days, mainly when it comes to our footwear. Nowadays, Wellingtons or rubber boots have become really fashionable and trendy. Since Kate Moss showed up to an English music festival wearing a pair of wellies, every single woman wants to get her hands on a pair. The world has changed a lot! I remember when I was little nobody wanted to wear them! 

Of course the Wellington boots you can find now in shops don't look like the ones you wore 20 years ago. You have a huge variety of colours, shapes and styles. Although the most famous name in this industry might be Hunter, the world’s most famous designers have got caught up in this trend and they offer a lot of possibilities. But how can you wear wellies and still look stylish? Pay attention – here’s how.


Classic style is the very first option that can be created with the help of Wellington boots. For this kind of look, you can combine them with a stripy or just a white T-shirt and bluish jeans, picking them in colour like red, for example. Spicing up the look with accessories is another creative thing you can do. Necklaces with creative design solutions and studded bags for example will look great and you can finish off with a classic trench coat.

In order to create a playful innocent look, you can try out combining a T-dress or shirt dress with a brighter toned raincoat or rain jacket. Then you can pick out some knee high socks and spice up the look with simple golden earrings and a small or medium size cross-body handbag.

Almost all of the modern stylists agree that wellies go really well with jeans of any type and shade. Skinny alternatives will be ideal for the loose upper parts of rain boots and more relaxed cuts can be nicely accentuated by hiding the extra drapes and loose parts. Going for printed and colourful options is also possible, but you need to be cautious not to make the prints and the designs of the boots too similar to those of the pants. The classic forms of pants can be matched with the classic monochrome colours like brown, olive and beige.

Now you have the tips to look chic and trendy in your wellies! Enjoy!
