How to Style Leather Pants – Trendy Tips

Leather trousers have flooded the market, the runways and street style blogs! We are not exaggerating when we say that they have become serious competition to the long-reigning queen “skinny jeans”. The variety of styles of leather pants offered by different brands is amazing: black, with zippers, studs, sequins, in different colors, skinny, baggy, etc. Yes, the classic and most popular version are the black skinny leather trousers, but you should open up to the alternatives. If you cannot afford a pair made of real leather, you can always go for faux leather. As a whole, they have become the absolute must-have bottomwear piece for the fall and winter seasons, so add them to your closet as soon as possible!

Here are some tips and ideas on how to style leather pants if you are new to the trend:

  • Match them with a denim or tartan shirt for an edgy and stylish everyday outfit. A pair of ankle or combat booties will make you a real rockstar!
  • The simple combination of leather pants and a white top (whether it is an off-the shoulder one, tank top or a regular t-shirt) can be made even better with a feodora hat or a pair of cool round sunglasses!
  • As the weather gets colder, you might want to put on a cosy jumper. Go for a pastel-colored one (pink, maybe even baby blue?). The contrast between the leather pants and the cute jumper will speak of your great fashion sense!
  • If you want to stand out from the crowd, pick something different than the black version: choose a burgundy or green color. Both of these hues are huge right now and are both dark enough for the colder months and interesting enough.
  • In case you are one of these really casual girls, admirers of sporty looks, you can mix the leather trousers with a sweatshirt with a catchy, funny print, a beanie and a pair of trendy sneakers (and the best part is all of these items are very fashionable and versatile too!).
  • Leather pants can be brought to another level if you go for a baggy version: just be sure that your top is rather tight, so you create a flattering silhouette! This look can be matched with both heels and flat, casual shoes.
  • There is also an option for girls who prefer a more preppy and chic look: go for a white or grey polo neck, add a lightly colored faux fur vest and you are ready to go!
  • For a night out, you can style leather trousers with sequins and sandals. Simple, isn’t it, yet so amazing!
  • Last but not least, we draw inspiration from the queen of leather pants, our ultimate favorite, Kate Moss! One of her staple combinations is a black blazer, court heels and simple button-down shirt or ordinary t-shirt. You cannot go wrong with that!
