Leather pants are no longer just a domain for rocker chicks and biker babes. Thanks to contemporary brands such as Helmut Lang, or good old high street favorites like Topshop, leather and faux leather leggings have been a hot commodity for a while. Whether they’re in the form of leggings, skinny jeans, or slouchy sweatpants, I’m happy to announce that this style is here to stay!

What makes leather pants suddenly so adaptable though? Just grab a pair on and you’ll see an instant hotness and sleek sophisticated vibe all over you. Leather pants ooze trendiness and luxe, along with a certain coolness of a rock star. And frankly anything looks good paired some good old leather!

When it comes to style leather pants, simply swap out your skinny jeans or leggings with them to achieve a more polished, cool-girl look. They look equally good dressed up as they do down. Just keep the rest of the look clean and minimal. I think leather pants look brilliant when paired with a boyfriend blazer or a chunky sweater. You can step up your game for an evening out, by pairing your pants with luxurious fabrics such as a silk blouse or velvet blazer. Also plain cotton tees balance the whole sleekness of the leather look, which makes it all more chic and effortless. As for shoes – stilettos make them more sexy and stylish, flats give a classy appeal to the whole leather look, while sneakers make the look urban-chic-sporty-luxe. Just don’t overdo the trend by wearing super tight leather pants with fitted tops or a matching leather jacket. Unlike the famous denim-on-denim trend, this monochromatic look will have you looking more like you belong in a biker gang than the sophisticated chick you are trying to be!

Leather pants are not only suitable for casual wear, and evening appropriate, but also work for any season or any age. The versatility of these pants allows you to pull off any style with added swag. If you don’t already have a pair, put them on your shopping list today!
