Before spring springs on us with its lighter outfits and pastel tones we still have a bit of time to fully enjoy and drape ourselves in one of 2024 biggest trends: leather. It certainly is not groundbreaking, more so it’s a staple but this year leather is loved on a whole new level. From Saint Laurent to Gucci and Tom Ford – designers are using leather in all its forms and shapes and sizes, so anything from 80s long coats and big shoulders, to 90s grunge, and 2000 glam styles, or the so trendy mob wife looks – all is in. It’s a celebration of this fabric that alone makes an outfit stand out, it gives it sophstroction, mystery, luxe, glam, grunge – its all up to your personal style.

So what does 2024 bring new to the table of the leather trend?

Basically it broadens our fashion leather horizon so we can choose any clothing item in leather from trousers, to jackets, coats, tops, corsets, jumpsuits, skirts, dresses, blazers, gloves, leggings… you name it, they make it out of leather.

How to wear leather in 2024? 

To say however is pretty accurate yet a lazy statement. So yes basically you can wear leather with sneakers or stilettos. A very happy leather marriage is with fur, denim, and knits, but don’t let this subjective list limit you.

Personally I think leather is a great piece to mix textures with and nothing will be as easy to wear as a leather coat or blazer. Think jeans and a white tee paired with any style cut leather blazer… I mean I’m feeling this combo right now more than a leather jacket.

The long 80s inspired coats from Saint Laurent are a whole new level of style and statement and you can wear such a coat with pretty much anything but it truly shines as an elegant strong piece with high heels and a gorgeous dress or a dressy pants outfit.

The leather pants can be anything from skinny, to tapered, to wide legged, or cargo. Pair them with a white shirt, a knitted sweater, a sweatshirt, boots, heels, sneakers or a fur coat, or wool coat and you got yourself a pretty cool outfit.

The most powerful leather looks this year are coming from skirts and dresses, or even leather co-ords. It’s the leather draping effect that is very bold and a true fashion and personal statement. I adore this look for a warmer winter day. It’s professional, powerful, feminine, fashionable yet classic. The variations of this outfit are limitless.

With spring almost here truth is head to toe leather looks might not be as appealing, but this only makes rooms for single leather pieces to be worn as such. The leather blazer, the pants, the leather shirt, the leather skirt with a different texture top, the leather dress on its own or paired with a classic trench coat or a classic blazer.

Whatever you choose know this: it’s a great choice with a high array of style options and chances are it’ll still be a classic 120 years from now.

PS Oh and I forgot that even those very tacky early 2000’s looks and pieces are having their moment of glory. Think leather corsets with low waist jeans. Cringe? Maybe for us millennials but if you love it… yolo!

Somewhere between the redundant clean girl aesthetic and Griselda the world of Instagram fashion has declared a new trend upon us: the mob wife look. Outfits that look like late 80’s early 90s catwalks, animal print, vintage fur, red lips, bold makeup, loads of jewellery, long nails, french mani, big hair, little skirts, black tights, high heels – everything with a dash of tackiness is IN.

Maximalism.

I don’t know about you, but I am here for it. For all of it. From the leopard print, to the maxi big furs and red lips – nothing is too much. I never gave up wearing my fur coats, or my red nails, and it’s only recently that I went back to big bold jewellery and leather – so this trend happening feels like a blessing for me and my 12749 fur coats and big chunky necklaces and earrings.

Tbh with you I think people got a bit tired of overly curated looks, and that clean style that looks fabulous, but is not very easy to pull off by everyone, as it requires a lot of quality pieces, which can be expensive – is too much by being too little. We want it all these days.

I also think some people are very faithful inherently to certain looks. For some girls it’s the boho look, for others it’s old money, for others it’s athleisure… whatever comes easier to us feels more honest. That doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and dab into different styles, but I do believe we might be witnessing a little revolution against curated styles. I pray so.

Are we also over perfectly done faces and styles altogether ?

That would mean we could get out of the house in a bare face… or just a dash of mascara and a red lip. No 12 step skin makeup… How easy would that be, just think about it?

So following the same logic/trend that would also mean we no longer have to overthink outfits and we can wear leather and animal print at the same time, and pair it with a vintage fur coat? Hell yess, and while you’re at it throw in 5 rings, some necklaces, and maybe bold lips or big hair… Is it tacky? It might be, but who cares. Is it too much? Well yeah, but that’s the whole point.

It’s a back to the basics of fashion situation: fave fun with clothes. That’s all there is to it. (ish. I also have a theory. of course I do. rolls eyes)

What would we look like if we threw out all the fashion rules and just enjoyed the clothes?

Well… some of us would look like lunatics lol, while others would look like a million bucks mob wife. So yeah… the truth lies somewhere in between.

What are the key pieces to the mob wife aesthetic?
  • big hair
  • bold jewellery
  • vintage fur
  • long nails
  • leather
  • animal print
  • sheer black tights
  • mini skirts
  • fitted fits

All of these at once or just pick a couple in one outfit.

Of course in 2024 we don’t have to walk around like we’re all the Nanny (that would be fine though), or some supermodel on the catwalks form early 90s, or a tacky but fun, flirtations and fashionable confident rich woman (that would too be okay) – we can adapt this trend to our personal style, and be a mod wife in sneakers, or a toned down hairstyle, or no makeup, or nude nails…

It’s all about the vibe.

The reason why I love this trend so much, aside from it being my alter ego since I was a born lol, is because of what it stands for: after years of laid back looks, and clean aesthetics, and overly done faces and styles – fashion is finally saying to us: go have fun, and forget about the rules. Be a fearless maximalist. It’s okay.

Traveling is great for body and soul, but it can be tough on your skin. While you might find taking a Southampton cruise or jumping on a plane to an exotic destination exhilarating, the combination of dehydration, dry air, and change of climate can be a challenge for your skin. Taking care of your hands and face while on the road can be tricky, and it is important to adopt a skincare routine that targets the specific issues that traveling throws up. Here are a few of the best ways to keep your skin healthy and radiant wherever your adventures take you. 

Hydrate Inside Out: Drink Water Religiously

Staying hydrated while you travel is important for a whole load of reasons, but your skin is one of the most significant. Long flights and shifts in climate can be extremely dehydrating, which is damaging to your skin, and it is easy to forget to drink enough water when you are on the go. Stay hydrated from the inside out by always carrying a water bottle and avoiding caffeine and alcohol as much as possible. 

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize: Your Skincare Mantra

A good moisturizer is the best defense against dry skin, and ‘moisturize, moisturize, moisturize’ should be your skincare mantra while you are on the road. Find a great moisturizer that suits your skin type and apply it generously before, during, and after your trip, especially after washing your face. It is worth looking for products that contain ingredients specifically designed to hydrate your skin, like hyaluronic acid and glycerin.

Adapt Your Skincare to the Climate: Know Your Destination

Of course, every destination is different, and not all skincare routines apply to every climate or atmosphere you visit. So do your research beforehand and find out what impact the local weather might have on your skin! Humid climates will require lighter, water-based moisturizers, while cold weather will need a cream-based moisturizer. Don’t forget to protect against wind, and remember to pick products with a good SPF to prevent sun damage. 

Sun Protection: A Non-Negotiable Step

Wherever you go, sun protection is key. Whether cold, hot, or cloudy, UV rays can damage your skin easily, so your skincare solutions should always, where possible, come with decent SPF protection. If you are planning to spend lots of time in the sun then you should top this up with sunblock, and wear a hat and sunglasses whenever you can. 

Cleansing: Gently Does It

Keeping your skin clean is important, but you must make sure you are gentle with your face as well. Too much cleansing, or overly strong products, can remove the natural oils that protect your skin, leaving it drier than when you started! Look for gentle cleansers that come with hydrating properties to ensure you aren’t damaging your face as you clean.

Sheet Masks: In-Flight Skincare Boost

Sheet masks are a great way to give yourself a little pampering session during a long flight and keep your skin fresh and moist at the same time. 

Stay Hands-Off: Resist the Temptation to Touch Your Face

One of the best ways to protect your skin while traveling is to leave it alone as much as possible! Our hands are often covered with dirt and unseen bacteria which can be very harsh on your skin, so avoid touching your face as much as possible. 

Keeping your skin fresh and healthy while traveling doesn’t have to be a challenge, and the skincare tips above will help you maintain a radiant glow wherever you go. Healthy skin helps you look and feel your best and allows you to enjoy your adventures worry-free!

It’s old, and it’s basic, never groundbreaking nor ‘trendy’ yet if fashion has anything particular these days it’s the prevalence of the sense of style over trendy pieces. So here we are in fall season 2023 celebrating the rise of the simple and classic white button down shirt. The classic white shirt, or the boyfriend shirt used to be a piece in the uniform of baristas, bankers, 9-5 employees… but in 2023 it appeared on the runways of all designers – reinvented and re-shaped, yet holding its classic quality.

Versace had it styled with extra long leather gloves and denim – a vision of style circa 80s meets 90s supermodel off duty. Proenza had the office wear taken up a notch, Valentino or Loewe had the reinvented superfluid shirt-dress style. Each designer had a soft spot for styling the white button down shirt with either denim or leather and keeping it simple but very sophisticated and classic.

Weather we go for the designer pieces or the retail more affordable ones, whether its poplin or hemp, oversized or classic fit, tucked in or not – you gotta admit a classic white shirt has that je n’est ce quoi of style, it’s simple, elegant and very fuss free. What used to be part of a boring uniform is now a way to get you out of any fashion outfit trouble – work wise or dinner outfit style. Especially with today’s fashion specs that nothing is out of fashion, all is in, and style spin is the key. Add a bit of 80s and 90s vibe to it and you’ll have a pool of white classic shirt styles to choose from.

How to wear a classic white shirt in 2023?

With heels

The basic of all basics is a classic pant or denim with a button down and a classic pair of stilettos. That’s it. If you’re a fashion ignorant, you don’t care, ain’t got time or are just in a style funk THIS outfit is the key.

If you know fashion or are just having a ton on time and inspiration on your hands you can opt for extra long pants, more loose cut, a boyfriend cut crispy white shirt, chunky hoops or clip-on-earrings, a great 90s blowout hairstyle, a vintage belt and a pair of square toe sharp shoes or boots. Pointy styles work too, boots, or even sandals if you can brave the cold. That’s it.

Layers

Just a peak of a white shirt, its collar all crispy showing from under a sweater or vest is the epitome of good style and 2023 vintage outfits. It has practicality and style depth and it looks really good with mini skirts and long tube-style-boots, a a little pearl necklace.

Office

Never in a million fashion years has the office outfit looked more cool and trendy. Black pants with an 80s cut, high waist, and extra length, a vintage belt and deep pockets paired with a tucked in white shirt and a nice necklace – damn its so Cindy Crawford meets Kim Basinger I can’t.

Denim

Well… there’s just something about the blue denim and white shirt combo that is a forever and after happy marriage in fashion. Keep both pieces classic and in good quality and you’ll have an outfit you can wear at any age. Any shoe style works, in fact it’s the shoes that dictate the style, and the vibe of it all, so experiment and have fun with it.

Vintage old school

This is all instagram reels and Pinterest boards. The outfits are very reminiscent of either an 80s interpretation of a white classic shirt outfit or a 2000’s Britney Spwears vibe. Anything that just seems thrown on, carelessly, but with style, with a pair of very loose, hip-hanging denim pants is a good mirror of this old school button down shirt style. For the sake of good taste please stick to non-fitted white shirt styles.

Anyway you get the idea, there is no wrong way to wear the white shirt, in fact wearing it you must and you can on any occasion and with any style gimmicks. Speaking of style gimmicks – this season you can unbutton your shirts all the way to your bellybutton for an extra sexy vibe, you can add very glam vintage inspired or evening earrings, and you can pair the white shirt with leather or denim. For extra coolness wear them with baggy jeans and tons of jewellery.

And if you want my fashion advice: it’s always best to stick with classic pieces and cuts, rather than an up-to-date-trendy-representation of such a staple.

Now it’s your turn to tell me if you love this staple, do you wear it often, or find it rather boring?

Knitwear, once known as being the cozy, handmade sweater lovingly crafted by grandmothers around the world, has gone through quite the transformation over the years. What was once associated with old fashioned style, is now a modern and very popular piece. In this article, we’ll take a short look at the evolution of knitwear and see how it became so popular recently, and why you should embrace this trend as well. Read along for a walk down memory lane.

The humble beginnings

The history of knitwear dates back centuries, with its origins traced to ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, who used a form of knitting as early as the 3rd century. However, it wasn’t until the Middle Ages that knitting as we know it began to take shape. During this period, it was primarily a domestic craft, with women handcrafting garments for their families.

Grandma’s touch

For many, knitwear is forever associated with the warmth of a grandmother’s love. The personal touch and individuality of these handcrafted pieces were cherished and treasured. Each grandmother’s knitting often included timeless classics like cable-knit cardigans, Fair Isle sweaters, and the iconic Aran sweater, known for its intricate stitch patterns. You can still find traditional Aran cardigans here: https://www.keilys.com/irish-cardigans.html These garments represent a rich symbol of traditions, passed down through generations. The value of hand-knit items was not just in their functionality but also in the labor of love added to each stitch.

The Fashion Evolution

As the world of fashion continued to evolve, knitwear started to go from practicality to style. The mid-20th century saw the rise of iconic designers such as Coco Chanel, who played a huge role in introducing knitwear into the world of high fashion. Chanel’s classic twinset, consisting of a knitted cardigan and matching top, challenged the traditional notions of what knitwear could be. Chic and versatile, the twinset became a symbol of elegance and femininity, giving knitwear a way to get into the wardrobes of the fashion elite. High-quality knits became a favorite among the upper class of society, replacing bulky, handmade garments with sleek, tailored pieces.

Today

Today, knitwear keeps its place high on the runway and in the fashion industry as a whole. Designers such as Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, and Christopher Kane have embraced knitwear as a key component of their collections, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with this versatile piece. Knitwear is no longer limited to classic silhouettes; it has transformed into avant garde designs, experimental shapes, and impressive technology. From oversized knit dresses to unique sweaters, knitwear is now an art form that combines traditional techniques with modern innovation.

Navigating your personal style on a budget can be quite daunting. Between keeping track of the ever-evolving fashion trends and searching for economical pieces that match your taste, it’s understandable if you feel swamped trying to stay stylish without depleting your savings. In this post, we’ll reveal strategies for optimizing your spending and ensuring you radiate absolute glamor at every gathering.

White Shirt With Button-Down Style

Regardless of whether your closet leans towards the formal or the laid-back style, a white button-down shirt is an essential item for achieving that effortless chic look. It’s stylish yet comfortable, making it the perfect representation of casual chic attire.

A neatly pressed white shirt enables you to smoothly transition from office hours to after-work drinks and even to running weekend chores. It’s such a versatile piece that you’ll find yourself reaching out for it regularly, making it worth the investment. A stylish white shirt should offer a relaxed fit, but it shouldn’t be so oversized that it seems like you’re drowning in material.

Purchase Elegant Pointed-Toe High Heels

Nearly every woman aspires to appear tall and stunning, though only a handful truly achieve this. The role your footwear plays in enhancing your attractiveness is pivotal. By donning pointed-toe shoes, you can effortlessly exude an aura of sophistication, elegance, and even gain a few additional centimeters in height.

These types of shoes are remarkably adaptable, pairing well with any outfit, be it a dress, jumpsuit, or simple denim jeans. You can also shop for designer platform shoes at Dihsan to complete any type of chic look. 

Remember the Handbag

Often, fashionable women are seen carrying the perfect handbag, be it an elegant clutch, a satchel, or a crossbody. The key to nailing the effortlessly chic style lies in the bag, as it has the power to completely revamp an outfit. A simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt can be instantly uplifted with the addition of a classic leather bag or a statement bag in the right pattern, material, or hue.

Experiment With Neutral Tones, Textural Aspects, and Fundamental Elements

To achieve a sophisticated style without breaking the bank, concentrate on investing in essential items, neutral shades, and textured pieces, such as the tweed jacket shown above worn with classic black basics. These selections not only offer increased versatility but also contribute to a more cohesive appearance. Pairing neutrals together adds a depth and richness to your outfit, regardless of its actual cost.

Bear in mind that neutrals extend beyond just white, tan, brown, and black. Shades like navy, gray, and burgundy can have the same impact. Don’t forget that certain patterns can act as neutrals too. Think animal prints, pinstripes, and textures like tweed. Incorporating and coordinating these elements can significantly enhance your style. For those keen on including patterns in their wardrobe, opt for more refined prints that mimic a neutral and team them up with contemporary basic pieces.

Complete Your Attire with a Chic Coat

No winter outfit is truly complete without a stylish coat and a standout bag. A nice camel coat can elevate your style to new heights of sophistication. Be it a fun romper dress or a monochrome neutral jumpsuit, a camel coat pairs beautifully with any outfit. A well-made camel coat not only shields you from the chill but also impeccably complements and completes your look.

Endnote

Enjoy expressing yourself through your style, embellish with suitable accessories, and most importantly, always remember to shop wisely.

Glasses wearers are some of the most stylish people on the high street. Known for pairing funky colors with their frames, new shapes and styles with their seasonal wardrobes, and rocking face framing, specs wearers are masters at making their facial features pop. This being said, when it comes to makeup, many glasses wearers encounter new challenges every day. Whether these are spectacle smears in their foundation or mascara transfers on their lenses, applying makeup as a specs wearer can be a nightmare. However, have no fear, as we have you covered. From perfecting your base to accentuating your eyes, here are three foolproof essentials to remember when you next apply your makeup for a face that’ll remain flawless all night long. 

Perfecting Your Base Makeup

Your base makeup is the foundation of a strong look. You want your base layer to remain intact for the longest period of time, so it’s important to eliminate the chances of spectacle spears, dents, and oil production at the very beginning of the routine. While many of us pile on layers of foundation, concealer, and powder to cover up our imperfections, experts suggest that opting for lighter layers of makeup could be the key to reducing those common frame dents in your face.

Secondly, it’s time to target areas where your frames could increase oil production. Think about the areas of your face that are likely to be covered with your frames. We’re talking about the bridge of your nose, your cheeks, and your temples. The key here is to keep these areas as matte as possible, allowing your specs to simply sit on the powder and let your base soak up the oil. 

Last but not least, keep an eye on your concealer. Glasses are known to cast larger shadows around your eye area, which can magnify any creases within your base, as well as accentuate darker circles. In order to combat this, ensure that you’re wearing a good concealer and are setting it well after application to reduce creases and darker pigmentation. 

Accentuating Your Eyes

In any makeup routine, eyes can be the make or break of a successful look. If you’re adding a pair of specs to the mix, accentuating your eyes becomes one step harder, as they are hidden behind your lenses.  If you’re looking for a failsafe eye-makeup routine, the rule here is to create more definition surrounding your eyes. We’re talking bolder eyeliner, darker lashes, and eye shadow that make your eye color pop.

Better still, another great hack is to match your eye makeup with your glasses. For example, if you’re wearing cat eyes like these, finish off your look with a classic eyeliner flick that follows the shape of your lenses. Why not also match your liner to your frame thickness? If you’re sporting daintier specs, keep your eye makeup more subtle, however, if you’re styling a bolder frame, go a little chunkier with your liner and shadow. 

It’s also important to remember your lashes in a smear-free makeup look. If you find that your lashes brush up against your lenses, it could be time to swap length for classic curls. It gives your look the same level of impact but reduces makeup transfer on your lenses. 

Don’t Forget Your Brows

If you want to tie your look together, it’s time to focus on your brows. For glasses wearers, in particular, brows can be a hard task. For many, their brows are often covered by their lenses, making it hard to accentuate them. In this case, you should work on brushing your brows up for some extra definition. However, depending on your frame type, you might want to take a lighter or darker approach to fill in your brows, depending on the level of ‘drama’ you want to give off with your look.  For thicker frames, you want to aim for lighter eyebrows, allowing your bold frames to be the center of the look. However, for thinner frame specs, a darker, more dramatic brow could send the look to the next level. 

One key tip to remember is to keep your brows in line with your glasses. Follow your natural lens shape, and never take your brows beyond the end of your frames. 

Tie It All Together

With your base, eyes, and brows in place, it’s time to tie your frame-inspired look together. Our top tip is to invest in a strong setting spray that aims to prevent your makeup from moving throughout the day. Better still, tie your whole makeup masterpiece together with a lip color that matches your glasses. If you’re a lover of a plum-inspired frame, why not match it with a bold purple lip color, or for more neutral frame colors, why not partner your look with a soft nude?  There are plenty of tips and tricks to play with for a spectacle-inspired look that screams perfection. All that’s left is to dig out your makeup bag and start experimenting.

All You Need to Know

Could the best styling brush be the secret to state-of-the-art styling? Try a thermal brush today from the leading manufacturer in the industry. Your favorite thermal brush combines the functions of a flat iron and a blow dryer, providing easy and no-fuss styling.

As a result of the latest technologies and innovations in the beauty industry, rocking stunning hair each day is as easy as running a thermal brush through your strands. Before using this hybrid tool, you need to know whether it’s a good option for your hair or not. On top of that, you also need to know how to use it correctly in order to obtain the best results. Keep reading to discover more about thermal brushes.

Will a Thermal Brush Work on Your Hair?

If your hair doesn’t bend easily, a thermal brush is a perfect tool to help you achieve those big, bouncy curls. These curls are less set compared to those from an iron or a wand. Also, it’s a perfect addition to your styling tools if you want volume and body. To obtain the best result, you need to pick the right thermal brush for your type of hair.

A small barrel is ideal for short hair. Thicker and long hair perfectly match a bigger barrel. Whatever the type of your hair, it’s advisable to use high-quality heat protectant spray before you can use your thermal brush. With a heat protectant spray, you’ll be able to prevent hair damage.

How to Use a Thermal Brush Correctly

Using a thermal brush is easy, whether you’re a total newbie or an at-home hairstyling pro. To use your thermal brush correctly, follow these simple steps:

Begin with a Damp Hair

Ensure your hair is 80% and above dry before you can start using a thermal brush. This’ll reduce heat damage and make sure your hair strands get completely dry, meaning less frizz when you style it.

Heat Protection

Be sure to prepare your hair with the best blowout product. Make sure that the blowout product is designed specifically for your type of hair.

Section and Clip

Divide your hair strands between four and five sections and then hold them in position using clips. Dividing your hair into these groups helps avoid brushing through the same strands several times. You should skip this step if you want quick touch-ups.

Brush Through the Strands

Introduce your thermal brush and allow it to heat up to your preferred temperature. With small, manageable sections, slowly brush through the hair strands from their bases to the tips. Lift each section away from your head and up as you gently guide your hybrid tool down the strands.

Curl Your Ends (Optional)

Use a round thermal brush instead of a paddle hot air brush to achieve curled ends. After brushing the entire hair, from the root to the tip, wrap it around the barrel before rolling the brush toward the roots. After that, hold your hot brush in place for between five and ten seconds before pressing the Cool button. Wait for some seconds for the curl to cool down before you can release it.

Lock in Volume and Shine

Finally, use a lightweight hairspray to lock in and shine. Apply serum if required. That is all you need to achieve your favorite hairstyle. Remember to pick your favorite thermal brush from the best, recommended and trustworthy provider.

Everyone should own a leather jacket because it is a timeless and iconic outerwear. It’s a must-have because it is a fantastic layering piece for winter and the ideal outerwear for brisk evenings while you’re out having fun. You can easily say that leather jackets work well with any ensemble you can imagine.

You can effortlessly style a leather jacket and look chic, but sometimes it is very important to focus on how you want to look for the event. However, if you need clarification, you do not have to worry as we are here with the style guide you need. In this blog, we will talk about eight different leather jacket outfits for women; if you like them, you can implement them when you get ready. 

  1. An Everyday Outfit

Everyday outfits should be comfortable and make you look cute at the same time. However, if you are confused about how to cater comfort and style together, then let us tell you that it is pretty easy. Every woman has casual items in her wardrobe, whether denim jeans, shorts, t-shirts, or crop tops. Pull out your denim shorts and pair them with a tube top, or maybe a button-down, full sleeves t-shirt. Slip on your comfy sandals, slides, or pumps, and do not forget your fanny pack. Lastly, to make this outfit stand out, you should wear a leather bomber jacket. This outfit will look appealing, provide you comfort, and will not hinder your movement. Wear this outfit out to grab a book from the library, or if you are going grocery shopping, you can even wear it if you are just catching up with your friends at a downtown cafe. 

  1. Pair It With A Jumpsuit 

Jumpsuits look spectacular, and women just want to look for occasions to wear them. But if you are thinking of pairing it up differently, then we know what to do. After you have worn your jumpsuit, put on a statement belt that stands out. Kitten heels are going to work quite well with your outfit, and to give a high dose of character, a leather jacket is the best option. Once you have all of it on, you can accessorize a bit by adding a delicate chain to your neck; also, a wristwatch would look great. 

  1. Denim Skirts And Leather Jackets

Denim really looks good with leather; thus, we thought to work with the denim skirt and jacket pair. For a warm but striking outfit, you can slide on your high-waisted, long denim pencil skirt and tuck in a baggy turtleneck. Long leather boots and a leather puffer jacket would enhance your look in no time. Sleek back your hair in a bun, put on cat-eyed sunshades, and pick up a vintage ladies’ purse.

  1. That Baggy Look 

Sometimes you want to tweak your style vibe and give yourself a different look. If you are willing to do so then opt for a baggy look. Wear high-waisted, wide-legged baggy pants, tuck in a t-shirt of your choice, and put on an open button-down shirt; lastly, remember a snazzy leather jacket that ties your look together. As for your shoes, sneakers or canvas shoes are going to complement your outfit. Tie your hair in a ponytail and put on that shiny lip gloss. Wear this outfit to a movie or a girl’s night out. 

  1. Black And White 

Black and white or monochrome just seems to work without any effort. You can wear an all-white outfit, including skinny jeans with a white satin top. To give the black touch, you can slip on black boots and a modish leather jacket, and not to forget a black clutch or tote, depending on your need. With this look, you are going to look like a fashionista. Wear this outfit to work or lunch dates; it all depends on you. 

  1. Wear It With A Dress

Spring calls for floral short dresses, as they look adorable and give you the vibe you need. If you are going to a pub dinner, then we know how you can dress up. With your floral mini dress, wear your long suede boots and slip on your leather biker jacket. Open your hair or style it in beach wave curls, or you can just get it in a messy bun. Wear your sunshades, and you are good to go. 

  1. The Baddie Aesthetic 

Are you the baddie who likes to dress up in her way? Then there might be some options. Low-waisted cargo pants are a go-to pick; with it, you can wear a statement, bold crop top and pull over an oversized leather jacket. Nike airs with a mini bag will make a cute addition to your look. Also, to be that baddie, put on that cat eye winged eyeliner, add some studs above your eyes, and put on a sassy lip color. 

  1. The Long Jacket Outfit 

Here is an intriguing outfit that incorporates a leather jacket and different prints. You can wear a long leather jacket over a printed blouse, as for the patterns you can choose from floral, animal or striped designs. To complete this sophisticated style, pair them with leather leggings and finish with ankle-long leather boots. Incorporate some animal-printed accessories into your long leather attire.
