i've wanted a black leather jacket for quite some time (i like rick owens, see by chloe, or the ones @ topshop)- seems very timeless and cool. but i live in a suburb of l.a., where people are..a bit behind. so, i feel like i'd look sort of ridiculous, and "punk-ed" up. and if i wore it in l.a., i'd feel like one of those scene/hipsters. I don't know.
^ dare to wear the leather jacket !
if l.a is behind on it then start something new, for them but for more importantly yourself. if you're afraid of looking too "punked up" then dress it down with a floral skirt etc
happiness...i have always had a major problem with showing my legs too...even though i know they're not bad!.....just the last few months i've experimented with wearing mini skirts with black tights underneath and it makes all the difference....i feel so much more comfortable....so i think it's the bare legs rather than the short skirt that actually makes me so nervous...maybe you could try something similar?...or leggings, as softie mentioned...
i was really inspired by some streetstyle pics of girls wearing mini skirts or dresses with tights...until then i had never really seen mini skirts look chic and NOT tacky..
here are a few examples..not all of them skirts and not all of them necessarily mini but still fairly short...
