I don´t know about you but I noticed in myself that I wear more pants and leggings in cold seasons than I wear dresses and skirts. It´s no brainer, my legs are warmer in those two. But how many ways can I wear pants or leggings in a particularly long winter without becoming too predictable?
The answer is … by working with leather jeans or leather pants/leggings. The leather texture offers a great way to deviate a little from the pick-me-up denim jeans. On days when it isn´t too freezing, try pairing up a pair of leather leggings with a cape for a stunning, almost high-fashion combo.
1. Plaid Cape + Leather Leggings
Whether you´re rocking a gray or a burgundy pullover, this plaid cape with faux-leather trims will certainly look flattering when teamed with some black leather leggings. Complete the look with black ankle boots and inject some color through a yellow handbag.
2. Checkered Poncho + Metallic Skinny Jeans
I love how fashionable this gray on gray looks. The beautiful checkered poncho in gray and camel hits around the knee, very elegant. But teaming it with a metallic skinny jean in gray will result to an elegant but fierce style statement. Really sexy pointed-toe pumps and a structured satchel are best to polish the look.
3. Ombre Poncho + Leather Leggings
Working with dark colors can be just as exciting as with bright colors when you have your hands on a luxurious ombre poncho and some high rise leather pants. Complete the look with fall´s key trend, the fringed shoes.
4. Poncho Sweater + Leather-like Jeans
At first glance I thought this is a Burberry poncho, but it´s actually from Joie. Luscious in its geometric print and stunning with its three-quarter sleeves, this poncho sweater + leather pants tandem will truly standout when polished with some classic black ankle boots and a bright colored handbag.
5. Wool Poncho + Leather Jeans
Wanna wear a poncho the way Gwen Stephanie does? This is the look to covet! Invest on a wool poncho with jacquard pattern to wear with leather pants and knee-high leather boots, and then grab a black satchel. It´s definitely a hard-to-resist fashion statement.
Don´t be afraid to play and experiment with lovely ponchos and fierce leather jeans.
