If like me you love leather and want to step out of the typical black leather biker image, why not brighten your look and venture into other colours that you wouldn’t normally consider. This leather bound style is great for the casual spring nights.
STYLE TIPS: Mix and match textures together to compliment each item, as shown with the line creases of the pants to the lines on the jacket. Drawing rich textures together in a look is just as important as combining the right colour variants and shades.
For this post I thought I would shape things up a little and mix and match a few items to great a more Advant Garde style. With plenty of choices and hair to boot don’t be afraid to venture into women’s items. Nothing is impossible with a bit of imagination.
STYLE TIPS: Start with finding common traits in the shapes to merge the style, as shown here, bring together the spikes of the hair with the shoulder rods, not forgetting the smaller details like the ribbon from the boots. Straight lines can also be complimented by the curves taken from the lace edges of the pants, mesh mask, mesh arm band and the curvature in the hair.
The revenge of the nerd is back with patterns and bowtie, but if like me you tend to shy away from patterns in RL, then SL can be a great platform to experiment and practice patterns on.
STYLE TIPS: Start with simple patterns that you are comfortable with and find common traits between the patterns, like colour, pattern shapes or directional flow. Use plain colours between each item to help combine the individual patterned items, e.g belt, socks and jacket in this style. The Nerd look is never short of a bag or book but remember to round of the finishing touches with a pair of geeky glasses.

For my first post I thought I would keep it simple and light with denim. It’s one of my favourite materials in rl and sl, but living in a big city with all the travelling and hectic life style, it’s not always practical to step away from dark shades to light colours. Mix and matching denim can sometimes be tricky if your items are from various stores with different wash effects.
STYLE TIPS: Mix and match colours that are from similar shade variants. When mixing different denims from different store brands, match items with high contrasting colours.
