My first post of Spring is about leather pants. Go figure! I actually got so caught up in my denim jeans obsession that I forgot all about my other favourite Winter pants! Although, I did mention my leather jacket countless times, my leather pants seem to have been overlooked. These faux leather pants were actually purchased in Summer, while overseas in a hot and humid climate.. again go figure! They were one of my best holiday purchases though and such a bargain that I just had to make room in the suitcase for them… 
 
Anyway today I thought I would share five styling tips on how to wear leather pants as I think they make such a chic alternative to simple black pants! Hopefully inspiring you northern hemisphere babes to break out of the denim and in to the leather this Winter.. because obviously it’s too late for me! Not complaining at all though.. yay Spring!
 
1. Style your leather pants with denim.. you already knew I was going to say that didn’t you?! Denim and leather just go so well together and of course jeans and a leather jacket is one of my favourite combos ever so why not flip it around and try leather pants with a denim jacket!
2. Do not wear leather with leather! Yes too much leather is actually not a good thing (denim on denim on the other hand.. fave combo ever!!). If you want to go for an all black look, try a black blazer or a black coat instead.
3. Leather pants are perfect for day and night. Dress them up with a pair of pointed toe heels or dress them down with a crisp white pair of sneakers.
4. Stick to classic black when adding leather pants to your wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen some pretty awesome red leather pants floating around this season and while I was definitely tempted, I could probably count on one finger the amount of times I would have worn them. Black is easier to style and will last for many Winters to come.
5. If the thought of wearing tight leather pants scares you, maybe try styling your leather pants with a longline/oversized top for a slouchy chic look.
 

What do you think? Will you be styling leather pants this season?

    Have I seen you wear these yet? I don’t remember. I love my leather pants, but somehow I guess, they don’t often feel all that right for Perth, it gets miserable but not THAT cold. Or maybe Melbourne and Adelaide are a bit gloomier or grungier.
    Agreed on no leather on leather!
