Leather is here, and it’s more sophisticated than ever. I know not all women would give it a try, but that’s mostly because they may seem difficult to style at first glance. On the other hand, street fashion has proven that we can wear them every day, even with sneakers and relaxed knitwear. They come off as more aggressive and sophisticated with high heels, but that is where their charm lies: they’re appropriate for every occasion, and a look we can definitely give a try in the anticipation of spring.
If you’re considering buying a pair, opt for black, because they’re timeless and you’ll have no trouble styling them with things you already have. Once you decide on a pair, avoid styling it with a leather jacket, because the look will be too heavy. Instead, opt for a romantic blouse with frills, lace, and transparent fabric in off-white or powder. The latter will dominate this spring, and drive out white completely, so a top or blouse in powder is a smart buy, because you’ll have ample opportunity to wear it.
The newest leather pants are very durable and need no special care. Leather has evolved to such a degree you won’t have to wait for a special occasion to wear it. Don’t fret over footwear, because leather pants can take flat shoes and high heels, sneakers and the most elegant stilettos. Opt for ankle boots during daytime, or slip-on sneakers for extra comfort. If you prefer elegance, opt for velvet footwear, because it looks great with leather, but keep the bag small and made of leather. All in all, leather pants are a top choice at the moment, because the winter is slowly giving way to warmer weather, and you’ll love to wear them in this transition, either for a stroll around the block, or to a more demanding occasion.
