Trend Alert: Leather Pants In Fall/Winter
Recently one of my FM readers wrote me and said, “is it okay to wear leggings in fall/winter?” While it’s not okay to wear leggings during this brutally cold season, I do have an alternative that can give you the leggings feel without looking cheap or freezing your azz off. In these recent weeks, Beyonce, Cassie and fashion it girl Rihanna, was spotted wearing what seems to be a new trend and a warmer alternative to the Spring/Summer hit- leggings:
As you can see, all 3 ladies wore all black with their leather pants. Leather pants are very edgy and being that the fabric is very tricky to pull off (and if you’re really pinching penny’s, it can look cheap), you don’t want to do anything else patent or “shiny” (event though, like Cassie, you can pull off pairing it with some patent booties). Here are some leather pants to consider:
Graham & Spencer Faux Leather Skinny Pants $295, INTERMIX
Paige Denim Black Label Hyde Park Skinny Leather Pant $595, Shop Bop
Helmut Lang Skinny Stretch Leather Pants $875, Shop Bop
To pull these off perfectly, I recommend pairing it with all black. All black anything, especially with leather thrown into the mix, can give anyone a little edge. My patent rule, can be adjusted. Not all the time, will patent come off as cheap, but it is very tricky to pair with leather. Cassie for example, rocked it with a pair of patent YSL boots with a blue sole. While Rihanna wore these Yves Saint Laurent high heeled tribute platform sandal ($680), this Alexander Wang scarf blazer ($750) and a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci layered necklace.
Just be careful ladies, don’t overload on the leather, patent or anything shiny!
