Leather trousers: Let your inner rock chick shine
A woman in leather trousers is a woman who's making a statement! These classic pants have a place in every rock star's wardrobe. You have to be pretty brave to try a pair of these bad boys on – but if you want to stand out from the crowd, they're an excellent choice. Always make sure your leather pants fit you properly. They should fit very close to the body, hugging your legs all the way down. If they're in any way baggy or loose, the effect will be spoiled. Also remember that you don't need to go for real leather: Vegan leather alternatives are available nowadays, and many of them are almost indistinguishable from the real thing.
Styling a pair of leather pants to look red-hot
Rock your leather trousers for a night on the town! One of the best ways for a woman in leather trousers to really show off is in a pair of high heels. Forget wedges and platforms. You want to make a statement in your leather pants, so go for a pair of stilettos. Choose shoes the same colour as your trousers or, if you want to try something a bit different, change it up. You could try, for example, a pair of black leather pants with red stilettos. Make sure you have at least a sliver of skin on display between the bottom of your trousers and your shoes; this will elongate your legs. Keep your top half simple with a vest top or halter-neck that will draw the eye downward.
Dressing down in leather trousers
Leather pants aren't just for special occasions! You can wear these by day, too. Either tuck them into a pair of boots – great for a winter look – or pair them with white trainers. If you're going down the trainer route, make sure your sneakers are box-fresh. If they're not gleaming white, you could ruin your look. On the top half of your body, you have a few options. A classic white vest top goes well with black leather pants. You could also wear a denim shirt. Tuck it into the top of your trousers for a look that's totally inspired by American rockers. Take it a step further with a band T-shirt to really show your rock star credentials.
