My husband takes my photos (and provides unsolicited commentary on my fashion choices). When he asked what the focal point of this outfit was, I replied the leather pants…of course. He then suggested that I make the rest of my look more “fancy.” But, while I certainly can get behind “fancy” attire, it’s just not practical for my everyday life. Yet, I still want to wear and enjoy special stand-out pieces such as heels, statement earrings, and leather pants.
One of my best friends wears her most favorite and expensive perfume everyday and serves her family their meals on her wedding china…because these things bring her joy. I try to apply this philosophy to my daily life as well. This outfit is evidence of that. Don’t reserve a special investment piece for rare occasions. While these leather pants could easily make a statement with a silk blouse and strappy sandals for a night on the town, they can also be woven into your daily wardrobe. For the office, wear leather as you would your denim jeans. Add a blazer for a touch of sophistication and swap heels for your favorite bootie. For weekend brunch (or even a playdate), pair them with retro sneakers and a slouchy sweater for a downtown cool yet casual look. Regardless of the occasion, channel your inner Kate Moss and wear your leather pants with confidence!
What’s your favorite way to wear leather (or leather-like) pants? I’m always eager for inspiration. Please leave a comment or suggestion.
