Leather Pants Are as Versatile as Jeans — These 30 Outfit Ideas Are Our Receipts
If there's one trend I'm completely obsessed with right now, it's the leather trend. Want receipts? I recently took three different leather pieces — a dress, a shirt, and pants — for a spin and truly lived by best fashion girl life. Though I've morphed into quite the wardrobe basics fanatic, I love a luxe leather piece; it's my ideal way to level-up the effect of T-shirts, jeans, and simple accessories like ankle and knee-high boots without that much effort. While oversize shirts, tailored jumpsuits, and dresses in buttery-soft leather are right up my alley, leather pants are undoubtedly the most universal way to rock this trend. In fact, they're a mainstay for many women like myself and have been for decades — the current buzz about leather just happens to make them feel fresh and exciting — which is exactly why I'm after all the leather pant outfit ideas to make mine feel new. As for my go-to place for sourcing inspiration? My Instagram feed, of course!
Whether you're a fan of a slim leather pant, cropped wide-leg, or fashion-forward iteration with cargo pockets or a high-gloss finish, there are so many stylish ways to wear your go-to version. For a low-key but luxe look, a T-shirt, sweater, hoodie, or oversize utility shirt is achingly cool with sneakers or ankle boots. For a bit more polish, layer on a blazer or try a right-now puff-sleeve blouse with heels or sleek flats. For a night-out look, a simple pump or strappy sandal is killer with leather pants and literally anything on top (a tee, a knit, a button-down shirt, a bodysuit, a blazer, etc.). Jewelry to finish, of course. In black, brown, or an unexpected color, I like to think of leather pants in the same way I do jeans. They can do it all! It simply depends on the mood or aesthetic you're after.
