In recent years, leather has become something of a style staple. Leather pencil skirts return to the runways season after season, the leather jacket is a modern-day must have and leather trousers have become a stylish alternative to denim.
We love this buttery-soft style by Michael Kors. Available in black or oxblood, their skinny fit and ankle-grazing design will add a cool-girl edge to endless outfits. Here are a few of our favourite ways to wear your new wardrobe favourite.
If there has ever been a perfect time to get on board with the leather trouser trend, winter is most certainly it. As cool to look at as it is warm to wear, leather looks amazing when paired with slouchy knits in cream, grey, navy or oatmeal. Layer fine knits or long sleeved T-shirts beneath a fur gilet or go for chunky arran knits instead, adding black ankle boots to complete the look.
Leather trousers have the unique ability to take you from casual to party-ready with the switch of a heel and the change of a top. Channel all things Seventies by pairing yours with a white silk shirt, skinny scarf, heels and a smoky eye, or opt for a printed blouse if you’re keen to add a little colour. Black and oxblood work amazingly together and a dark lip will add a Kate Moss edge in all eventualities.
Looking cool but casual can be a tall order if you’re tiring of denim but leather trousers can be a fab alternative, breathing new life into the simplest T-shirt and pumps combo. White trainers have come back with a bang in the last couple of seasons and they’re a fashion editor’s favourite when paired with sleek leather trousers, a simple tee and a denim jacket.
When worn with a smart tuxedo jacket, leather trousers can bring a new edge to the traditional suit. The current trend for going bare beneath a buttoned tuxedo looks incredible if you have the confidence to pull it off but a gossamer-thin camisole top looks just as good. Heels are an absolute must and black courts will carry the eye downwards, adding extra inches height-wise and slimming the silhouette.
