If you’ve ever seen that Friends episode where Ross gets stuck in his leather trousers ( I mean who hasn’t? ), you may have been a little more than wary of this season’s trouser trend. I must admit, the skin-tight leather leggings championed by Kate Moss throughout the early 2000’s are particularly hard to pull off and even I found it difficult to see their appeal after that. But leather has established itself as the material of the season.
This season, though, as we’ve all started to embrace our autumn wardrobes, it is a trouser that alot of my clients are interested in shopping for. They are versatile, you can wear them dressed down with trainers or make them work in the evening in heeled boots or court shoes. It’s all about a smooth luxurious looking leather not a distressed biker look from back in the 90’s.
The high street is well known for having amazing faux styles as well as great value real leather pieces so it’s a great place to look for the pair of trousers you want. There’s a plethora of different styles available for this season that are really flattering, the straight leg especially and casual shapes such as the luxe joggers.
So, whether you’re thinking of dipping a toe in the pond with a faux style or ready to invest in the perfect luxury leather pair, here are some options and styling ideas to inspire you to get out of your jeans and into something new.
