Here’s How To Wear Leather Pants This Spring

Fall 2013 Trend Forecast

What’s the one fashion trend that won’t go away — and we don’t want it to? Fall 2012 fashion saw leather becoming an even bigger wardrobe staple than skinny jeans, and it was the leather pants we most coveted. Now, with spring 2013 fashion all about warmer-weather leather, we’re happy we invested in some fantastic leather pieces. But if you were thinking this would be their final season in style, check again. Fall 2013 fashion weeks worldwide just wrapped up, and leather is set to be back (or stay) in a big way.

Staying Power

Designers like Balmain offered up some over the top takes on the leather pants trend in their spring collections, while edgy, grunge leather looks came courtesy of Phillip Lim for next fall. During the kick-off to fall 2013 in New York, leather made a statement and it said “I’m not going anywhere!”

How To Wear It All Year

We’re loving the literal moto influence on the future of leather, and can’t wait for next fall to rock leather pants with slouchy boots and zipped-up vests like at 3.1 Phillip Lim. For now, though, we’re taking cues from one of our favourite style stars Zoe Saldana, who shows that a slim leg is always in style, and sophisticated touches like pumps, a red lip and a gorgeous camel coat are the perfect inspiration for putting a simply chic outfit together with your leather pants.
