I Want to Be Wearing That: Sofia Richie's Leather Pants and Sneakers
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about investing in leather pants, and Sofia Richie just proved to me that I need them. The model and Missguided collaborator stepped out in Beverly Hills for a shopping trip at Barneys, toting her shearling-lined Chanel handbag and baring her toned abs in a casual cropped tank. Sofia topped off her look with an ice blue blazer with distressed hems and lucite sunglasses for an extra street style statement. But let's take a second to focus on those leather slacks, with slits at the ankle to create a slight flare and reveal her clean white low-tops.
While I've always thought of leather pants as an evening look — something I'd wear to go out to dinner with a pair of heels — Sofia just made me see them in a whole new light. I love how her high-waisted silhouette brings sophistication to her outfit, but then her sneakers play it down, as if to say, "NBD, it's just a daytime shopping trip." Sofia's pants are structured and flatter her figure, so I'm sure she feels confident when she slips them on. And those sneakers? Well, they just ground this whole fashion moment in comfort, and comfort is key.
