What I Wore (6/6).

The weather in Sydney is wigging out right now. Crazy winds, rain – the full catastrophe.

Rugged up today in my favourite Helmut Lang leather pants - buy them here. Stretchy, warm, comfy – a little bit rock and not in anyway a legging which as you know are not pants.

Over the top I’ve gone with olive on olive – old tunic from Sportsgirl and the Morrison Malvern jacket - buy it here. Olive makes a nice change from brown and is deceptively flattering for all skin tones.

The key to leather pants is buying them tight – you almost need to look ugly in them – because they stretch and they do not come back. Ever. If the investment is too steep for a trend you’re liable to wear only a couple of times then try a faux leather variety. Just make sure to choose a pair that is well lined – flannel insert is best – otherwise it will feel like your wearing garbage bags on you legs.

CLICK TO BUY: 1. Helmut Lang Stretch Leather Pants $983 from ShopBop; 2. Lola Vs Harper Faux Leather Leggings, $90 from Myer

    Hi Paula I love, love, love your blog. I was wondering if you could blog about jackets, cardi’s and knits. I have so much trouble completing an outfit with these and don’t know which styles I should invest in as staples!
