Guest Post | Leather Legs For Fall ‘12 Trend

Fall is storming ahead full force with the leather pant trend in its midst. With affordable faux-options at retailers such as Forever 21 and ASOS, this timeless trend is at the fingertips of many. While the thought of wiggling, hopping and rolling your way into a pair of boa-constricting pants may seem unpleasant and a bit terrifying, the reality is that leather pants are becoming a closest staple much like your coveted blue jeans.

Although an edgy alternative to jeans, leather pants are just as versatile, especially when layering items for fall. Jolt into Starbucks for a Caramel Macchiato, by pairing a classic tee, knit scarf, army jacket and your favorite pair of sneaks for a casual look. Transition a summer tank under a tailored blazer and slip on a pair of sultry heels for a tryst to the nightclub with your girls. Even if you’re not thrilled with the idea of a total leather pant, leather embellishments, like leather panels on denim and leggings can add a bit of oomph to any outfit.

Still not sure how to implement this trend into your wardrobe? Check out a few styling options below:

 

Casual 

Paired with a camo jacket, gray tee & red Chuck’s, this is a slightly sporty look that’s perfect for a day running errands or hanging out with friends.

 

 Dressed

Glam them up with heels, a white peplum top (still a hot trend in itself), and geometric accessories for fun date night out on the town.
