Does this work? or maybe i should roll the jacket sleeve down?
any comment would be appreicated
I think the jacket looks a bit too short, like it would be better suited to someone with a shorter torso. You'd suit a longer style better as you have the long torso to pull it off.
The blouse however looks fine without it and could look really nice worn with a shorts suit in summer.

What goes with black flannel below the knee pants?
I have some cute pants - some people call them knickers, but not in the British sense! They're black flannel, come a bit below the knee, a bit billowy and tie at the bottom of each leg with a black satin tie. I got them at a swap and haven't worn them yet. I don't know what shoes to wear with them, if I should wear tights or even what kind of look to go for. Can someone help me? I want to wear them before the weather gets too warm.

Ideas how to style white skinny jeans
Guys,

I just bought a pair of white skinny jeans for the first time and I am looking for some ideas what to wear them with.

My vision thus far is only to wear them with that greyish pale brown colour (I thought a cotton t-shirt and sandals), but I wonder if there are any other good ideas out there (except I guess for the traditional black and white or white and navy or white and navy and red).

But any ideas are welcome and any pics would be great too!!!

Kisses,
Lina

Quite honestly...I think you are UNLIMITED in your choices of color combo's and of outfit styles w/ those. It'd be hard to pick just a few for ex's b/c most anything goes.

I guess you are right, but I sort of want them to look extra chic, not too usual

For "extra chic", then, put a lot of thought into the accessories vs. the color combo's or tops. Depending on the look you're going for, you can do SO MUCH more with a few well chosen pieces or even one statement piece (i.e. jewelry, shoe or bag)

I bought a denim jacket at H&M the other day, because they're sort of making a revival in my country. But I have absolutely no idea what to wear with it, and even though I really like the jacket, I feel a bit uncomfortable in it, since denim jackets still feel kind of 'out' to me. Do you have any ideas? It's quite a short one, and looks really good if the sleeves are a little bit rolled up.
here's a pic:

Or you could just tell me if it's a horrible buy, I'm still thinking myself about returning it...

No no, don't return it. A jean jacket, though you may put it away for several seasons, always comes back and is a classic! I have one exactly the same-except from OldNavy.
I wear mine especially during s/s as a cover up or jacket for chilly nights when a leather jacket or other coat is too much. I mostly wear it over tank tops and over summer dresses-especially floral or overly fem. I wear it with my white denim but I do not wear multiple denim-jean jacket on top & jeans/pants. imho, not a good look.
Since it comes above the hip/cropped, I make sure it's layered over something that is longer so I don't look boxy...or trashy.

Thanks!
I hate the all-denim look too, so I was already thinking about wearing it with floral dresses. But if you wear it with a tank top, with what bottom do you wear it?
It's a nice jacket, but oh so difficult to combine

Any suggestions for what to wear with my Marc Jacobs Bruna? Black with gold tone like the pic. She spends too much time in her dustbag!!

She's great whenever I've got a reason to add some formality to my outfit, but I'm normally working in a fairly casual atmosphere where jeans trump dress pants. She looks fantastic with heels but I also can't wear stiletto/narrow heels often, because they get trapped in all the cobblestones around here.

I know she's black leather, but are there some ways I can wear her in the daytime in warmer months?

It's a great bag! Here are some of my ideas to wear it during daytime in the warmer season:

What about wearing your bag with
  • a black blouse/tee,
  • white jeans and
  • black ballet flats?
You could also wear it with:
  • a maxi grey dress
  • wedges.
Or with your jeans, a white oxford shirt, flat black sandals.

Thanks Aby! Those are some great combos I can really visualize and best of all they totally work for my life. I'm so excited to try some out!

Chinos, shorts, cargo pants, anything printed...loose-fitting skirts! Basically anything but jeans
