When the weather changes, so does the staple piece of clothing for the season, and what’s my staple for this fall? Leather pants, of course. The smooth and chic leather pants give that extra dose of edginess and really take any outfit, no matter how simple, to the next level. Lately, I’ve been finding myself in search of the perfect pair and daydreaming of outfits that incorporate something, anything leather.
Now, when on the hunt for a pair of those desirable leather skinnys, for most of us, there seems to be a large factor standing in the way between us and the holy grail of leg wear…and that factor is price. True, authentic leather is certainly pricey, but luckily there are alternatives to this look. The closest penny saving option is the faux leather look, ladies, try out a pair like these faux leathers and fellas, you can pick up a pair of fauxs. Another great trend which I am one, obsessed with and two, been gracing the runway in a multitude of colors and sheens, is the coated-denim, which this Fashionisto is sporting. This new style of denim can be found in most of the top denim retailers like Lucky Brand, J Brand and even Marc Jacobs.
This Fashionisto was seen donning a great pair of black coated-denim, simple grey V-neck and a beautiful black leather bag that I am definitely lusting over. His wide-rimmed glasses put the icing on the cake, giving this look an effortless edge.
If you’re one to embrace the current trends, then what better way than to snagging a pair of chic leather skinnys or opt for the über cool coated denim. Boys: if it’s the real thing you want, splurge on a pair like these Leralux Leather Trousers but definitely don’t be afraid of the rising coated-denim trend! Try a pair of these equally as chic black wax coated jeans; wear with a simple top to ensure that you aren’t taking the focus off of your rocker style bottoms.
Ladies: if you have the cash and are willing to splurge, I suggest going for the real leather pants, something like these leather biker pants; they are timeless and always a go to item in your wardrobe. Otherwise, try on a pair of awesome coated jeans and mix it up by opting for another hot trend: metallics. These rose gold metallic coated jeans are to die for and deserve nothing less than a double take.
This fall, really hone in on certain trends that will stand out, yet still be able wearable in upcoming seasons. In my opinion you can never go wrong with a great pair of leather pants and as of recent, coated-denim is really giving those glorious leathers a run for their money. So go out and grab yourselves a pair — you decide which, and make a statement this fall. Standing out is always in style.
