The leather jacket has been an essential part of fashion history for decades. From WWII to James Dean’s iconic Rebel Without a Cause days, the leather jacket has transformed into a staple piece in the closet’s of people all over the world. However, in 2015 a new leather trend has emerged in full force.
The leather pant has been seen on the streets of all the major fashion capitals of the world and is most notably worn by models off-duty such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
With December rolling right around the corner, the weather is getting remarkably colder day by day here in the Northeast—making the leather pant a top pick from Harper’s Bazaar for the winter of 2015 and 2016 due to its warmth and versatility. Whether you’re heading to your SOC101 class, running errands around town or having drinks with friends at an upscale bar, the leather pant proves to be a perfect option for all events.
For a casual everyday look our Fashionista draws inspiration from celebrity street style. Her personal pick for a leather pant comes from Aritizia—specifically the Wilfred Free Daria Pant. She is also donning a Penfield Chatham Buffalo Plaid Flannel Shirt and her adidas Originials Superstar Sneaker. To complete her look, she opts for a pair of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses and black onyx jewelry from David Yurman.
