One of my all-time favorite episodes of Friends is where Ross tries to be "cool" by wearing leather pants, but after a visit to the men's room, he can't get them back up! Thankfully, this ridiculously funny episode didn't sway my love for leather pants. I think every woman should own at least one pair (real or faux). I personally own a few, and in different colors. Maybe it's my rebellious side coming out in suburbia or the fact that most of them have this amazing elasticity that holds everything (that you want) in? Dressed up with heels or casual with flats, this Fall and Winter must-have is a staple in my closet - and should be in yours too! And the best part is that you don't have to break the bank to get a pair (or two!).
These leather trousers from Zara are super comfortable and very reasonably priced. They hang low on the waist without any spill-over! (BONUS!) I paired them with a great denim shirt from Jcrew and patent oxfords. The final touch - a Madewell paisley bandana around my neck and a Balenciaga leather wrap around bracelet. Since I love "getting dressed" I would wear this during the day...maybe for coffee with a friend and then easily transition the look into my evening plans (if I have any...lol), by just switching the shoes to heels. Two outfits in one!
