For the evenings during weekdays, go for darker colours, like these G-Star shape high-waist super skinny jeans. They are my preferred choice when I know I’m going out for a dinner or to the next door pub. Darker shades will not only make your legs appear slimmer but also longer! Moreover, you won’t be worrying about spilling something on your lap and rushing to the ladies’ room to clean it up. Or is it just me?

A Pair Of Biker Chick Leather Trousers
I’m really into leather trousers these days, just look at my latest addition of side-strap leather trousers! They are super trendy and versatile. You can wear them with pretty much anything. However, an oversized aviator jacket can seriously elevate your whole look! If you want to achieve that cool streetstyle-biker-chick presence, then this is the way to go. A pair of black leather leggings would be your safest option. This way, you’ll not only hide any ‘imperfections’ (you do realise you’re perfect, right?!) but also give yourself the freedom to experiment with the colour of your aviator jacket! You can go for dark and beige colours. Or you can go completely mad and get yourself a bright one. The choice is yours!

The Comfy Jumper Dress
Now, this option is the ultimate comfy choice! Wear your aviator coat with an oversized jumper dress for the comfiest look of your life. Be careful though, you might as well fall asleep while you’re on the subway, or just sitting on the bench in the park. Oversized jumper dresses are not only comfy but also incredibly warm! You’ll be surprised at how warm a knitted dress can be. Some wool styles can keep you even warmer than a pair of jeans. However, you can always put an extra pair of leggings to beat those dreaded winter chills.
If you do decide to select this option, the length of the aviator jacket is extremely important. If you want to be more casual and rock ‘n’ roll, opt for a cropped shearling coat. A cropped jacket will also go perfectly with a pair of ankle boots. For a chicer look, I would strongly recommend an oversized A-line aviator coat. Opt for a neutral colour and pair it with an ankle-length jumper dress. Put on a pair of over-the-knee boots and you might as well go to the next fashion week, even uninvited!
