With everyone donning leather pants and leggings, Pippa Holt, fashion features associate at Vogue, offered some wearing advice. “Keep the silhouette long and lean. Wear them skinny with a tunic top cinched in at the wait by a thin belt. Or for a soft-goth look, pair them with....black fringed cape. If you're wearing them in the evening, take inspiration from Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy and add gold necklaces and a jacket.”
Stylist Emily Barnes also feels leather pants should stay edgy, stating, “Leather trousers should always have a rock edge. The rock wardrobe is their heritage. So wearing them with heels in an Abigail's Party way can look really Sloaney and uncool.”
Despite the fashionistas' advice, people are wearing leather leggings in a variety of different ways. Whether you like to dress them up or down, leather pants are an essential must-have item for your closet.
