Leather is one of spring’s biggest trends, and it is here to stay. Designers like Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and many others showed leather in their recent Fall 09 shows.
Today, I shared with you an edgy way to beautify your eyes. Here’s a way to take that look and make a bold statement by incorporating a leather dress like the one Kate Beckinsale was recently photographed in.
What’s also great about this look is that if you simply add a belt to your leather dress, you can accentuate your waist. If you want a more toned down look, I’d go for leather pants or a leather skirt. Choose soft loose fabrics to help complement your look, like sweaters, t-shirts or jersey tops. So infuse your wardrobe with some new leather pieces but choose styles that flatter your figure and add a bit of edginess to create a look that’s trendy and yet still practical!

When you hear the word jumpsuit, you probably conjure up images of a certain king.In 2008, designers like Stella McCartney and Derek Lam showed an array of beautiful jumpsuit styles. In order to wear a jumpsuit, it is necessary to find the style that flatters your body. View these tips to help you to select the right style jumpsuit to best accentuate your body type.
Choose a black sleek jumpsuit to help make you look taller and slimmer. Make sure you choose the right shoes, a strappy sandal or a sexy pump will help elongate your legs. The length of the pant should hit at the ankle or below. If it is a skinny fit, then the length should hit the ankle, if it is a wide leg fit then the length should be below the ankle or it should touch the floor. So if you have one in your closet already, it is time to take it out again. If you have a curvy silhouette, check out Shape fx’s take on the jumpsuit. It features an added control top and wide leg to help to balance out the hips. Here are some great day and evening jumpsuit options at affordable prices you can jump for joy about.
