yoox.com
my god they are AMAZING...
and i think it's true...
you have to wear pants tucked in...
i have similar motorcycle boots from Comme and that is how i always wear them...
basically with skinny jeans...


*but i'm a girl...

:p...

You saying they are amazing makes me want to have them even more, softgrey :p

I really want to invest in some sort of boots this winter, but maybe I should buy a more conventional type of footwear, classic ankle boots with an exposed zipper or something like that, something easier to wear with jeans

Thanks for the suggestion

Those Margiela boots are amazing MetricSam! I agree with softgrey, wear them with skinny jeans tucked in. I wish I could afford them!

I'm wearing this gown soon, how would you guys style it?
I need some ideas for hair, make-up, shoes, and jewelry!
I'm really skinny with dark hair and a light tan.
The party is really dressy.

Thats a gorgeous Dress, Could you please provide a source for your image ? .

I Would keep the hair and make-up simple, depending where your wearing it to, either a pony tail or something like how Anna Paquin wore her hair to the Emmy's would look fantastic.
same goes for the accessories, probably metallic in color ?

after 10 minutes you can't edit the post, but now you have credited it in a separate post its perfectly fine .

Definitely keep it simple, not too many bells and whistles, i think the dress definitely speaks volumes already, a light smokey eye, barely anything on the lips and the hair as i mentioned before and I'm sure you'll look great .

Sleek, you'll need something simple to counterbalance the dress, I think.

So I bought this hot $10 dress from H&M a while back. It's very tight fitting, stretchy and black with sparkly thread throughout. It look gorgeous when the light catches it. What kind of shoes, jewelry, jackets, accessories etc would look good with it?

Shoes- heels/pumps. If it's your style, you could get away with a black, peeptoe bootie. Colors: any metallics or any bright color (or black) to set it off.
Jacket- Difficult with this. You could maybe get a way with a long, menswear-type (aka oversize) black blazer. I think a cropped jacket on this short of a dress would cheapen the look. Maybe a leather jacket if you were going the peeptoe bootie route.
Jewelry- focus on earrings and/or bangles-no necklaces (would compete w/ the neckline).
Bag- a clutch or jewel tone small case (which to me, is also a "clutch")

I bought these greenish/khaki trousers from H&M not so long ago but i am at a total loss as to what shoes to wear them with! Im quite tall so heels arent really an option for me. Any ideas?

^Something like this or this would work. Or pretty much any flat, leather boot.
