Sure, not all of those stuffy corporate offices will open their minds to leather pants as appropriate attire, but we’re creative types and that’s just not our thang! If you work in an office that allows you to fashionably express yourself, even if it is on a casual friday, then leather pants can work for you. They have instant edge, drama and high fashion. Keep it simple with basics. I paired it with a modernly cut white sweater and subdued sexy heels that still add sophistication but with a pointed toe fashion edge. Your cubicle neighbour will be jealous and you’ll be noted as the office trend setter. They’ll also drool over this scarf. The price is unreal, they won’t believe you when you tell them. Everyone can be trendy that’s on a budget-I pride myself in finding great pieces at great prices (email me if you ever need budget shopping tips or tours).
Ok, so if like I mentioned above you work in a corporate office, then you’re saving your sexy pants for the weekend. An easy carry over into the night out (see below) with the swipe of a red lip and silk topper. For a casual day off, I paired mine with the ultimate plaid from Joe Fresh. It looks vintage, is super soft, the colour is beyond amazing and did I mention I basically haven’t taken it off? Also, can we observe these shoes?! I am obsessed. The comfort is deceiving as they look stiff, but unlike Doc Martens that you need to break in, these are instant loving foot huggers. The cherry red that slightly ombre’s darker is the colour of the season, along with the menswear inspired look and block heel. These are the ultimate shoes and not quite as much of an investment as Docs. Run to Zara, before it’s too late!
H&M Dress, Vero Moda Pants, Zara Heels, Vintage Clutch
Who said you can’t wear a dress over pants? Well, I have forever….until I played around with this one. I bought this dress at H&M at the beginning of summer because the price was out of this world, but I’ve yet to wear it. I am waiting for the perfect night to wear it as such. I tucked in the inner slip and let the see-through top lay over romantically.I also am loving the navy with the black. I don’t usually, as I’ve mentioned I’m scarred after being called a bruise, but because it is so simple I enjoy the impact it’s making; besides, it’s fashion rules are meant to be broken! Paired with a side swept bun, sexy vintage snakeskin clutch no one will have, a red lip and thin arm bands that make the biggest impact (try it then email me how many people adore the trend or are just taking notice). Play with fashion. Fashion is your rule book, your style is how you break the rules.
