Crisp weather means layering, which is the perfect opportunity to mix your favourite textures and textiles to create visual loveliness. One of my favourite fabric trends this season is leather, and what better way to wear leather than on your legs? Pack away all those mini-skirts and short-shorts and get on the leather pants. Here are a few ways to wear the trend no matter what your budget is.
Not your typical skinny jean. Leather skinnies are the perfect harmony between badass, sexy and high fashion.
High: J Brand $1753
Moderate: Citizens of Humanity $234
Low: Zara $59.90
Dare to go even tighter? Think Olivia Newton John in Grease or Catwoman— Meow!
High: Victoria Beckham $1500
Moderate: Zara $79.90
Low: American Apparel $48
If you’re not feeling the skin-tight look opt for something a little more modest, like these cargo-style leather pants. The look ruled the runways this season and was a fall favourite among designers such as Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Mulberry.
High: Bottega Veneta $675
Low: Topshop $84
The perfect pairing of my favourite fall trends — burgundy and leather.
High: The Row $1945
Moderate: Helmut Lang $285
Low: H&M $39.95
Hints of Leather
Too much? You don’t have to go hip to hem leather. Accented pants are another easy way to wear the trend. They are a little more comfortable but no less fashionable.
High: R13 $865
Moderate: Theory $395
Low: Forever 21 $17.80
