The Evolution of Leather Pants

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m all about a good leather pant for the fall and winter.  Although they seem to have become a staple in many of our wardrobes, it’s interesting to review the evolution of leather pants over the years.

  1. Leather Pant Phase One: Low/mid rise tight skinny fit leather pant/legging
  2. Leather Pant Phase One: Low/mid rise tight skinny fit leather pant/legging
  3. Leather Pant Phase Two: Embellished studded leather pants – studding, zippers, etc.
  4. Leather Pant Phase Four: High Rise leather pants – skinny fit but higher rise
  5. Leather Pant Phase Five: Looser fitting, ankle length leather pants.

Today, I’ve decided that the coolest way to wear a leather pant is one that hits the ankle, not super tight to the body and a mid to high rise. My favorite brands for leather pants at the moment are Nanushka, Isabel Marant Etoile, Wilfred Free, Zara and BLANK NYC.

Leather pants are the perfect alternative to denim in the winter.  Not only can they be worn in many ways, but they usually serve to elevate your look.  A few of my go-to ways to style mine are back to a cozy chunky knit, a tucked in button down, or a silky top/cami.

For this look, I paired my new leather pants with a simple oversized rib knit and a black pump. I wanted to create a look that can be worn from day to night (I would most likely change into a cami for drinks/dinner).

A trendier version of a leather pant that I love is one in an embossed croc.  My sister recently gifted me a brown pair and I loved them so much that I immediately ordered a second in black.  They are high-waisted and looser in fit, which I feel has taken over stylistically when it comes to pants. I’m not saying we should give up any of our low rise jeans or pants, however, if you want my opinion, you can store them in a bin under your bed for the time being.
