Leather pants have been in style for about over 6 years now. The real question is whether you have mastered the artistry of wearing and shopping for these bad boys. When I decided to buy a pair, I kept having the biggest issue when ordering them. It seemed like every pair I bought and returned would be so snug I couldn’t move or so snug I couldn’t button them. There was something completely different about shopping for a pair of leather pants.
The trick is really to order a size or two up. I am a size 6 usually and I had to order a size 10. This also creates an issue if you decide to buy a pair that is high-waisted because then you have the issue of awkward waistline gapping. My best tips for this would be to get them altered, find a great belt or just work with shirts that will compliment the pants.
For my first look I paired them with a jean shirt which I could tuck in to mask the gaping. Add a gray suede biker jacket and fun “camera” bag and you’re ready to go. I am absolutely obsessed with this fringe shirt from Sammydress. It lets me mix up the usual chambray shirt for something with a little more spunk.
In my second look, I wore the off the shoulder top with a choker from Sammydress. I personally love the colors gray and pink together, so naturally I grabbed for my light pink leather jacket to pair with this look. This shirt satisfies your off the shoulder dreams and fulfills your choker obsession.
For my final look, I wore the Sammydress choker sweater, which is so unbelievably cute. I would recommend ordering a size up in this. My long torso needs a little extra fabric to function. My high-waisted leather pants, lets me pull this off though.
