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. 

Victoria Beckham - Kate Moss - Miranda Kerr

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!

Rule # 31: How to wear flare pants.

Previous years some people said that being fabulous means to avoid flared jeans, and boot-cuts, and boyfriend jeans. Pretty much you should wear only skinny jeans. But now, after several season of skintight pants, some designers have expanded their offerings with trousers cut more generously at the hems. 70s style are continuing to make a huge comeback, including the incredibly flattering wide legged or flare pants and our celebs love it! 

Nicole Richie - Miranda Kerr - Victoria Beckham

Olivia Palermo

Flare pants have moved quickly to near the top of the list of everybody's fashion favourites. They are cool, feminine and chic and also classy and elegant. The accentuate a curvy feminine shape perfectly and even make your legs appear longer and leaner. 

This pants are for all body shape, just have in mind this tips:

PEAR SHAPE: avoid high-waisted and be careful of pocket placement avoiding flap pockets that have a lot of embellishments. The trick is to wear flare pants that tapper in at the knee and slightly flare out from knee to hem. 

APPLE SHAPE: since this body type is more heavy on the upper part, your pants should create a more balanced look by filling out the lower half. Opt for wide leg, bell bottom, or palazzo pants to give a more proportional look. Choose pants with front and back pockets to help disguise your rounded upper body while flattering your curves. 

ROUND SHAPE: pants with a straight classic cut suit the most to this body type because it has more weight around the tummy and will likely have large breasts. So wear pants that balance your upper body. Look for pants that are mid-rise. You want to waist to hit across the belly (not below or above it) to make your upper torso look longer. Another tip, go up a size and you will look much slimmer. 

RECTANGLE SHAPE: if you have this body type, feel free to wear any style of flare pants with details or simple ones. However, if you're small or petite frame, this figure will look better in well-fitted flare pants. Forget baggy pants from the top down and avoid cuffed pants as they will cut the length of your legs and make you look even smaller. 

HOURGLASS SHAPE: definitely flare pants are for women with this body shape because the styles showcase curves. Just make sure you choose a pair that cinches at the waist. 

Just one last tip, whatever your body shape is, wear your flare pants always with heels. Have a look at the outfits I have created for you.

8 Ways of Wearing a White Jacket.

Hello dear followers! It’s been a while since my last post but I'm still around! 

Today I want to talk about one of the most important pieces in every woman's wardrobe: the jacket. Owning the perfect jacket can give a boost to your look by making your style more interesting and chic. Wearing a jacket in the summer season might not be a great idea if you live in a warm country or you're travelling to a very hot/humid destination so, for this type of weather, the colour of choice is white. 

Olivia Palermo - Kate Moss - Kim Kardashian 

Lots of celebrities and bloggers around the world have surrendered to the charms of the blazer. A white blazer is a must if you want to look chic and turn heads, but the big question is: how can you combine a white blazer or jacket with the rest of your clothes? It's easy. Just take a look at these tips.

Wearing a white jacket is not exclusively for summer nights. You can also wear it during the day, even for the office if you’re clever enough to pull off the look. For example, wear a simple white blazer with palazzo pants and a nice, comfortable heel and pair it with a shirt. Be careful with your accessories and tone them down a little.

If you are having a night out with your friends, try the white blazer with your boyfriend’s ripped jeans or even with skinny ones, heels and a top. Add some accessories to finish the look.

Summer maxi-dresses are always one of the strongest trends of the season. If you are a big fan of these dresses, step out of your comfort zone and wear it with a white blazer. In this case, choose a simple, less structure blazer and pair it with gladiator sandals. You can wear it during the day and at the night. Just take care with your accessories. 

Hope you find these tips useful and please send me some pics of yourself wearing your white blazer!

The Perfect Summer Dress

Hello dear followers! After 2 weeks of silence I'm back! I've been really busy so I didn't have time to come here and keep you up to date with more tips.

Well, summer is just around the corner, temperatures are getting higher and nobody wants to wear heavy clothes. That's why I'm here today to show you the perfect summer dress.

Slip dresses (Street Style)

Back in the 90s, girls around the world started wearing tiny dresses called slip dresses characterized by skinny spaghetti straps and a straight-cut bodice. Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and The City" loved these types of dresses and we often saw her wearing them not only during the hot summer in NYC but also during the winter with a big coat.

Nicole Richie - Rachel Weisz -Rihana (Red carpet events)

Now designers around the world have brought them back and they have become one of the strongest pieces of the summer. But how and where should you wear a slip dress? Wear it during the day with a great pair of sandals and at night with a stunning pair of heels. If you are going to buy one, my tip is to choose one that is as simple as possible with no details. That will make it more versatile. There are also options with lace that makes it more wearable for night events. It's up to you.

Las Vegas Style Challenge

Hello followers! 

Last week I received an invitation from Vegas.com to participate in a new challenge called #MyVegasStyle Blog Challenge where bloggers all around the world present their very own sense of style for a day in Las Vegas at The Aria Hotel by creating three looks that either will go from day to night or three different looks (lunch, dinner and night out in Las Vegas). 

I'm so flattered that the Director of Content of Vegas.com picked me out for this new challenge. It means a lot to me. 

So today, instead of giving you tips about how to wear clothes, I have created three looks to wear for a day in Las Vegas at The Aria Hotel. I have never been to Las Vegas but I pulled out these looks by thinking about an independent, confident woman with a sense of style who was powerful but feminine and playful at the same time.

The first look is a day look that you can wear for lunch with your girl friends at the Lemongrass Restaurant. The second one is an evening look: sparkle skirt and silk satin top that will make you look amazing while dinning at Sirio Ristorante. And after spending the whole day enjoying the hotel amenities and the Spa, what about dancing and having a couple of cocktails with your friends at the Haze Nightclub? For this occasion I have chosen a fantastic lamé mini dress paired with black accessories. Check them out! 

This time, instead of choosing affordable clothing I have dreamt a bit and selected expensive options, just for once. So have a look at these three outfits and dream a bit as well. I hope you like them!
