How to wear Leather Trousers

Biker Trousers (Zara), Coltrane Boots (Jeffrey Campbell)
Which Leather trousers ?

  • Firstly, make sure the shape/cut of the trouser compliments your legs and feels comfortable.
  • I prefer skinny or tapered trousers unless they’re supposed to be baggy.
  • This Biker style has quilted stitching and biker accents/useless zips. I enjoy this. But you  may want a more plain and understated pair. 
  • Really think about the value and longevity of a piece before you add it to your wardrobe. 
  • Ask yourself Will I wear this? , What can I wear this with?Do I really need this?

What to wear with Leather trousers?

  • Leather trousers require careful styling otherwise you could end up looking like a reject from N-sync (Exhibit A).
  • They’re already quite a statement within themselves so try and keep the rest of the look toned down. A Monochromatic palette in keeping with the trouser colour is perfect.
  • Mixing different textures on the top half will balance out the whole look. You can add more leather in, lets say in terms of accessory, but a leather top may be overdoing it, it’s up to you though! 
  • I’ll be wearing plain or subtle tees with mine, nothing too loud as they’re already loud enough.
  • You want to keep it classy and avoid the whole Tom Jones/Cowboy kind of vibe.
  • Team with cut out boots and no socks, clean white trainers or some sweet brogues. 
It’s wet and gross outside and I have no one to take outfit pictures and trying to take selfies in my new room was a complete and utter nightmare. So Ta-da, Photobooth! I used to use photobooth all the time then I switched to my dslr but today I thought, why can’t I use both?

Anyway, I picked up these Biker trousers from Zara yesterday, I’ve been eyeing them up online for awhile but Zara is usually such a let down. You see the clothes online and they look amazing but when you’re face to face with that Saint Laurent inspired sweater it looks as though a monkey made it. (no offence to Zaras Factory workers, It’s not your fault.)

However these babies actually look and feel worth their price of £39.99. I wanted to write a bit more of my views and opinions so here is my first ‘How to wear’ Aha, please let me know what you think!
