If there’s one look that is totally hot this cold season, it’s the faux leather pants.
At first sight, the faux leather pants might not seem like a practical outfit choice, but don’t be mistaken, the leather-pant is comfortable and so versatile that it can be worn in a variety of ways – and not just for a night out on the town!
We’re loving how the faux-leather look gives easy access to a super cool style – without the super high price tag of full leather pants. It’s such a clever look which is sassy and edgy while still being refined and not too showy. If you don’t think you’re ready to pull off the full-leather look, there are also equally as stylish pants with a leather-look panel on the front or side, paired with a stretch fabric on the back.
Right, so have you decided it’s time to embrace the leather-look this winter? Go for it! Channel your inner rock goddess by checking out our tips on how to wear the faux-leather pant with confidence and class this winter.
Dress them up
Finding the right outfit for an evening out in winter can be a challenge, after all, your go-to LBD (little black dress) is definitely not an ideal option on cooler nights. But with a sleek pair of leather-look trousers, you can easily create a sexy and fun look for your night out. You’ll effortlessly look ultra-glam by adding a simple pair of heels or ankle boots. While a black pair of heels can never do you wrong, dare to experiment with a bold heel such as red, gold or animal print. Complete your simple glamour look with a v-neck shirt loosely tucked into your pants, dress things up a bit with an embellished design for a bit of bling. Finally, rug up with a faux-fur jacket or vest, or a simple blazer with turned-up cuffs.
Dress them down
Leather trousers are certainly not limited to after-dark outings. They are perfect for a casual Saturday look, whether you’re heading out for brunch or simply for a stroll around the shops. Pair your leather pants with a simple white sneaker and you can’t go wrong. Just about any top will complement your pants, whether it’s an oversized bulky knit, a long-line merino cardigan or a simple long-sleeved crew neck paired with a cute denim jacket. A winter coat is the perfect match – go for camel or grey to cover up while staying on-trend. If you really want to polish off your casual look, add a wide brim wool hat or a snug beanie and matching scarf.
Put them to work
Your faux leather pants are also appropriate for creating a smart corporate look for the office. A crisp white collared shirt, simple black blazer and pointed heel create a simple yet striking combination. Either tuck your shirt in, or let the tails hang long for a stylish silhouette. Of course, just about any colour and fabric is going to complement your leather trousers – from sheer or silk shirts in khaki, beige, red or grey to slim-fitting merino tops or flattering turtlenecks or cotton crews. What’s more, faux leather pants are the perfect solution for transitioning your outfit through to after work functions or events.
So, as you can see, if there’s one addition that you want to make to your winter wardrobe this winter, the leather-look pant is an option that is going to provide you with plenty of outfit versatility. They pair perfectly with all your existing wardrobe staples to create casual, corporate and glam looks with such little effort.
