When I saw this Fashionista’s outfit I immediately thought of Amy Levin, CollegeFashionista’s Editor-in-Chief. Leather pants and a white T-shirt might be Amy’s favorite pieces of clothing, so today’s Fashionista seems more than worthy of the spotlight. Her chic, fall, outfit consists of black leather pants, a loose white T-shirt, a ribbed chunky cardigan and brown leather boots. Her leopard print tote is the perfect bag for the outfit since it ties in the black and adds a fun punch with its wild print. What I particularly love about this look is the contrast of sleek black leather with cozy knitwear; it makes for a super hip look that’s not overdone.
Leather pants have been a huge trend this season, seen on the likes of Victoria's Secret models Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio and celebrities such as Anne Hathaway, Nicole Richie and Ashley Olsen. Since they can be paired with blazers, blouses, T-shirts and sweaters, leather pants turn out to be a totally wearable legwear option. As today’s Fashionista demonstrates, they can look casual and sophisticated when paired with the right pieces. Read below to find out more about this effortlessly stylish Fashionista.
