With winter also in full effect, we've seen leather-pants outfits on repeat, and we’re gleaning some styling tips for how to pull them off this season. One of my favorite sources for inspiration? Past looks spotted on the streets during Paris fashion week. Here, I'm taking a look at some of the classic outfits that never fail.
One thing I've noticed across the board in the past few years is that fashion girls are skipping the legging-style leather pants that have been popular in seasons past. Instead, they’ve been opting for trouser-inspired styles that have wider-leg fits and tailored finishes. This is a silhouette that will always be in style, so they're a solid bet to add to your wardrobe. So what is the coolest way to pull them off? Ahead, see iconic leather pants outfits from the streets of Paris, and shop the best styles to pull off the looks.
Look for trouser-style leather pants that have a high-waisted fit, straight legs, and tapered ankles. If you don't want to wear real leather, a lot of brands, such as Nanushka, offer vegan options.
