How to Wear Leather Pants





My style is office-appropriate during the week, but lately my weekends have been all (p)leather pants. I've been wearing them in place of jeans or leggings, and they make me feel...well...just a little tiny bit like a rock star. I won't lie - I first wore these with a bit of trepidation. There are a lot of things I am 'too' to wear leather leggings. Too old? Too sartorially conservative? Too employed in an occupation other than rock star? Clearly, I'm over the 'terrible toos'; you've seen me wear these leggings several times already, with a fur vest and a sparkly jacket. Maybe next time I'll try to pair them with something more conservative, like a simple chambray shirt, or a classic black blazer. Are you wearing leather pants? How would you style them?

  1. Love this! I'm wearing leather pants right now with an oversized sweater. It's my favorite way to wear them, especially when paired with my black booties. And, I'm with ya, I totally feel like a rock star whenever I wear them!

  2. Funny...I have been contemplating a pair of [p]leater leggings recently! (As i can finally fit into so new to me sizes), but I wonder if it's the best idea w/ Spring/Summer allegedly around the corner!

    1. I think we can get away with cool weather items up until Memorial Day - and even then, we can just stow them away for fall!

  4. I don't have a pair, YET! I would definitely wear my Nike dunk sky highs & either a bomber jacket or tailored jacket with these pants. Love your jacket!

    1. Right? I think we need to get over the "toos" and just do it :)

  6. I've been coveting a pair of suede leggings. I have it in my head that not only could they impart a rock star vibe, but that they'd also give me a badass nature girl vibe (me looking whistfully into the middle distance across a fjord. Or something.) Anyway, you def make [p]leather look doable. (and in another fabulous fur coat!)
