Must-Have Item: The Motorcycle (Biker) Jacket

First! Y'all need, no, must listen to this. It's a preview to Aziatix's new song, me and Bia are totally in love with this band.
Second. . . carrying on with the post. 
As you already know (yup, the title) this post is about the one and only motorcycle jacket (or leather jacket). This item is extremely versatile and badass, but also really fun to wear because you can mix it with almost anything from skirts/dresses to high heels and skinny jeans. For me, I'd wear it with normal jeans, because I have a large waist (and butt xD), skinny jeans don't look really good on me, a plain, white t-shirt and a pair of boots, most likely army boots. Uhm, this is kinda my style :3 Oh yeah! If your body is narrow on the upper half and wide on the lower half, don't wear skinny jeans, they'll most likely make you look a bit chubby. So! If your body is like this try wearing straight-cut jeans, because they give a better form to you body. 

Going back to the jacket now. . . 

The motorcycle jacket was a really famous item in the '80, a lot of people owned one and it kinda made them look more badass. These days, the jacket made a really cool comeback as now it has a more modern feeling to it. They look great on everyone because they adapt to the body shape, but that's only if you get the right size to fit you. They're almost never out of fashion.
Since a lot of people don't really know how to choose a motorcycle jacket and just buy the first one they see, I'll give a few tips to keep in mind when you buy a jacket:

1 - make sure it fits and that it's not too lose or too tight. For this you need to check the shoulders, if the cut is too high, then the jacket is too small, but if the cut is too low, then the jacket is too big (this is something you should keep in mind everytime you buy a jacket/cardigan/blouse, basically anything with sleeves);
2 - always take someone with you when you buy a motorcycle jacket to double-check that it fits and looks good on you;
3 - the motorcycle jacket looks best when it's on the hip or just a bit higher, but not too high (that's why you need to take someone with you);
4 - they come in different colors (the modern feeling I was talking about earlier) from purple to red and white, so choose wisely and by choosing wisely I mean choose according to your wardrobe/style.
5 - lastly, a motorcycle jacket is not complete unless it has zippers, studs and other ornaments to give it that badass feel.

Now I'll show you a few ways to wearing a biker jacket. Enjoy~

First on, baby CL. I simply love how she wears the biker jacket, because she has an edgy style and almost all of her jackets are WOW!

                           Another adorable lady that likes to wear biker jackets is Park Sandara. 
To finish off, I give you. . .cutie/hottie Taeyang.

And like I said, you can wear it with skirts/dresses too

Now if you excuse me, I got some things to do.

First post + style tips: animal prints

Hey, I'm Rin, some know me from here (my personal blog which I need to update, damn it!) and some just got to know me now. This is my first post on Starlike so be gentle, I'm not like Bia and Lex, I'm really awkward.
So! My first post will be about style/fashion (name it how you want) and to be more specific, about animal prints (just like the title says). I'm not an expert when it comes to fashion, but I'll try my best! ^^

I really like her outfit, it respects most of the 'rules' that wearing animal prints require.

Le 'rules':
1st rule: one print at a time (available for all prints)
- wear just ONE print at a time. Since prints stand out a lot, the best thing to do is keep the rest simple. If the upper/bottom part of the body has a print you must use one simple/plain color on the other half (usually a color that is in the print, close to it or dark).

2nd rule: wear black and white (or dark and light colors)
- if you're wearing an animal printed dress make sure your shoes and bag are black. If you're wearing other items that are animal printed it's best for the rest of the outfit to be black and/or white. You can wear a white shirt only if the pants/jacket (blazer, cardigan) is animal printed. Why black and white? It makes you and your outfit stand out more. You can use colors close to the prints, but make sure they go together well or else you'll end up looking like a real animal.

(not the best photo of GD, but he's just so derp in this one I had to! xD)

3rd rule: keep it simple
- like the 2nd rule states, wear dark/light colors with animal prints. Don't even think about mixing animal prints with other prints or else you'll end up looking like a fashion victim. Keep it simple!

4th rule: animal printed shoes
- this one is also related to black/dark colors. If you wear animal printed shoes the rest of your outfit has to be black/really dark colored. Only exception is for accessories which can be brown/gold to loosen up the outfit. 

Both Kate Moss and her assistant are wearing animal printed shoes with black outfits.

Lucy Liu's shoes are somewhat unique, but match well with her black dress.

Key thing in wearing animal prints: light and dark outfits. Black and white are not the 'only' colors that can be used, but it's best to wear these two.

Merry Christmas everyone!
