Parties

Little black dress and classy pumps? No, no. Because this season we’re going edgy and sexy with leather shorts! With a basic simple top in a neutral color tucked into the shorts, a fun sequin glittery blazer over in gold or silver, a statement necklace and some baddass rings, the outfit is quite complete. Of course, the shoes that you opt for need to be very edgy and chic to keep up with the thematic. In addition to emphasize the wild side for your look add a leopard printed clutch.

For the make-up, the best idea would be to choose playful dark eyeshadows, from grey to midnight blue or purple and green, but nothing too glittery because the attraction point needs to be your outfit. Since your look is already eccentric and fancy, the hairstyle needs to be simple, so a ponytail will be more than enough.

Daytime

Of course, a pair of sexy leather shorts should not be hidden under the night’s darkness, so by daytime the outfit needs to keep a clear line and look very fresh and fashionable too. Add to your leather pants a silk blouse with sheer details and tuck it in. Also take a pair of classy tights with small details, like polka dots and take on some Oxford shoes.
A large cardigan over the top or a fur vest will add a little edge to your outfit and will keep you warm. For accessories choose a messenger bag and a pair of geeky glasses.
