styles in women's leather pants

One trend that seems to never go out of type is women's leather pants. Get all of those misconceptions out of your mind and embrace the deliciousness that is quality grain leather. Yes, more individuals that bikers and cowboys wear leather pants and no, you will not squeak while walking down the street in leather pants. Yes, leather pants can be worn in the summer and also during the daytime. No, leather pants are not difficult to clean, nor are they outrageously expensive that only a choice few can afford them. If these are your reasons for not wearing a hot pair of women's leather pants, you have run out of excuses, so get ready to shimmy and slither into a fantastic pair!

Leather pants are tremendously trendy, especially with today's hot fad of the skinny pants. Virtually anyone can look fantastic while wearing skinny pants, and they work great with those super stunning stilettos or those big bulky boots. Keep in mind that any type of pants you choose should properly fit your figure. If you can't wear skinny pants, then don't buy skinny pants. Likewise, if you can't wear low slung hip huggers, then don't buy low slung hip huggers. You will look much better in a style that fits your body type than one that is popular, but looks awkward on your body.

If you are wondering what to wear with your women's leather pants, the options are limitless. Unless you enjoy looking like a vampire hunter, drag queen, or dominatrix (and let's face it, who doesn't?), avoid wearing head to toe leather. Pair your steaming hot leather pants with a loose fitting top. One great thing about leather pants is that you can still be sexy and show off your curves without showing skin. For this reason, you can also choose a skin baring, super sexy top while still being appropriately covered. Everyone knows that bare skin overload (for example, a super mini skirt paired with a barely-there top) is horrifically outdated and even more inappropriate, so any outfit that include women's leather pants is perfect for those who want to cover up without hiding their best assets.

Typically, women's leather pants do not make their way into the work wear wardrobe, but today's leather suits have completely shattered the mold. Usually, the only person that wears a leather suit is a bounty hunter or country music star, and neither look is particular attractive. However, by pairing your leather pants with a slim fitting leather blazer, you can create a spectacular look that is perfectly appropriate for wearing in a professional workplace setting. Be sure to offset your leather pants and blazer with a cotton or silk blouse. For an especially smart look, pair a crisp shirt with the leather outfit.

Leather is undoubtedly the fabric of amore, as few men can resist a woman in leather. Even though the "less is more" theory is a popular one with most men, there is something to be said about leather pants. Since leather hugs your curves and shows off your body, there is little left to the imagination, but the material is so buttery soft and inviting that they rarely stay on for very long once things get heated. However, if you would prefer to show a bit more leg, then hot pants are your best bet. Hot pants, yes another blast from the past, are back and sexier than ever, especially ones made of leather. These itsy bitsy pants keep the allure, feel, and look of leather, but still showcase your killer gams. What guy could possibly resist?

fashion directions for 2006

Fashion styles are forever changing. What do this year's changes bring forth? Fashion is up and down and all around this year. Accessories are going to sizzle this summer, hemlines are going down a bit, pants waistlines are going up, necklaces are going down, scarves are fluid, earrings are dangling, handbags get soft, and belts are back. Feminine, sexy and sultry styles will keep those heads turning. Sheers, crocheted lace, silky satin and flowing gauze will be everywhere. Comfy cool and sexy, sounds like a great year for women!

Accessories are fabulous this year and are leaning in the arts & craft direction. We will start with necklaces. They are beady, long and plentiful. Where a single large beaded strand with artful beads or pair them up with several. Long is where they are at as well as big and with interesting beads. Plastic, glass, wood, handmade, crocheted, and metal beads in all variations have invaded the necklace world. Find them beaded alone or with lace, sheer or ribbon. Artisans beware; fabulous finds are in high demand! While you are at it, dangling earrings to match will complete the ensemble. Hoops and beads are dangling in the earring category. Out with the chandeliers and in come the dangling beads.

Belts are back big-time accentuating the waistlines. In the gym lately? You'll need it this year! Belts run the gamut this year in all styles. Wide big belts are back as well as plenty of other styles. Crocheted lace belts, pom pom end belts, leather, and fabric belts are all a hot ticket. Sheer or lace belts are big that can be used two fold. You can where them as a belt or as a scarf. Get creative and find those great finds at art fairs in fabric belts or crocheted belts.

Gold is big this season. Find it in handbags, jewelry, clothing and shoes. Don't go overboard with gold; remember a little goes a long way. Don't cover yourself in gold from head to toe; you'll look like a left over Christmas ornament! Gold shoes and a great gold handbag will look great with any outfit and you will not be overdoing it.

Handbags are always a favorite; you can never have enough of them. Soft leathers, straw and fabrics are very in. Larger size handbags are big. Look for lots of gathered ends on the top and visible pockets on the outside. Straw is hot in all colors and new styles, crochet and appliques are abundant. You will see simple designs to more artistic designs. Stick with simple if your outfit is strikingly fabulous. When going for a more conservative or simple style, then go with a more artistic handbag to set it off.

The ups and downs have it this year. Necklaces are going down as well as hemlines. Not too much though, just mini's are out. Look for knee length and long flowing skirts and dresses. Lacey, satin, sheers and gauze is it for skirts and dresses. Yes, I did say dresses; they are making a comeback big-time. Comfy and sexy at the same time! Skirts styles are very full along with A-lines are very in. Pants waistlines are starting to go up which is what is bringing belts back in. It may take a while but at least they are not going down any farther. Was there any room left to go?
Let your accessories sizzle and your femininity and sex-appeal reign in this year's styles.

revisiting classics of french style

It seems for the last few centuries, the French have had the final word when it comes to fashion and style-Parisian style, in particular, retains its essence of what is the height of couture with its distinctive looks and timeless staples of wardrobe and accessories. Yet, one does not have to live in Paris to show off their cosmopolitan flair for dress. The subsequent article reflects on some classic French designers, styles, and elements of a distinctively French wardrobe.

It was Coco Chanel who first gave us a glimpse of that little black dress in 1926. Chanel is also noted for many other fashion innovations including the two-tone sling back pump, the two-piece tweed suit and a range of clothing that is both elegant and unconstrained. Adding a little black dress to your wardrobe is a must because that single dress can be worn casually with flats and a sweater or may be transformed into evening wear with high heels and a flashy handbag or scarf. There are many dress styles available today, but French women generally choose clothing that is close fitting, but not constricting.

Black and white clothing is, in fact, classically vogue for French women. Consider adding a white and black suit to your wardrobe to be worn seasonally. The white blouse in its many incarnations from classic button-down to peasant-like Bohemian can be added to the suit ensemble or worn with a pair of black pants-consider sleek black denim or black suede. The fit of the clothing is extremely important; whatever your body type, be sure to wear clothing that fits you precisely, which is a hallmark of French style.

Another element of French style is color coordination. Typically an outfit revolves around a dominant color, like black, and while other neutral colors are introduced. A three-piece ensemble might include a brown leopard-print skirt, a white blouse, and a beige cardigan. A night on the town might include a lavender cocktail dress adorned magenta-colored scarf and amethyst-beaded handbag. Tone on tone colors are typical Paris color choices for everyday wear.

French women are no strangers to lingerie and a range of camisoles is a staple in the Parisian woman's closet. Choose mainly neutral colors-beige, white, black, or navy for daily wear. Reds, purples, or more flashy garments should be worn only at night. Many of today's designs by Lacroix, Givenchy or Dior incorporate elements of past fashion eras making the world of lingerie all the more broader. Choose garments that flatter, and as always, garments that fit.

Accessories are, of course, the finishing touches of your Parisian ensemble and keep in mind the old adage-less is more-when topping off your outfit. Be sure your wardrobe includes the basics like black leather belts-one with silver and one with gold buckles-black and white high heels and black and white handbags. Quality is important and a French woman would always opt for quality over quantity when it comes to her clothing. Be sure to have flats, heels and boots in your shoe rack and try to have a variety of scarves to interchange between your basic suits and dresses. Finally, a main element of French fashion is to wear clothing like you mean it-aspire to the confidence of looking good; you will if you wear clothing that fits you properly in styles that are classic. Confidence is a major component of French style so be comfortable in you clothing and purchase clothing you feel relaxed in and good about. There is far more to French style than what is listed here, but if you begin your new wardrobe with these basics, you are sure to have French fashion clothing suitable for every occasion.
