Today’s article is about an absolute wardrobe staple for fall and winter: the black leather pants. By absolute wardrobe staple I mean: It is a MUST HAVE. If you don’t own one yet, go out and get one!
Why? Because leather pants is the answer to sooo many styling questions.
You need some texture to style up a casual day look? Wear leather pants. You need to add some oh la la to a classic outfit? Wear leather pants. You want to look classy and cool like Miranda Kerr? You got it, wear leather pants!
Leather as a material has long been denigrated in fashion as it was more associated with biker gangs and heavy metal rockers (not to mention fetish wear). But then, things changed and pretty much all influential designers started showing the material on the runway. Fashionistas around the world picked it up and now, you cannot think about street style without thinking about leather pants.
If you cannot or don’t want to afford the real thing, faux leather is more than ok, of course! Easier care instructions make up for a lot. Plus, it’s animal friendly. If you choose faux leather, make sure to buy high quality. Poorly made ones can easily turn your look from chic to shoddy. Please don’t do that.

Oh my, I can’t believe it’s mid September already! And looking outside, I think I have to wave goodbye to summer with a weepy heart.
Maybe you know this dull feeling. You realize that you can no longer enjoy being outside whenever you want, and as a consequence, you feel that subliminal anger that you won’t be able to wear your summer clothes until… well, next summer (and next summer seems ages away from now!).
Luckily, there are some things in fashion that seem to be lasting all year long. This year it is the floral print trend.
Transitioning from summer to fall is quite easy in general. The cold season is all about layering, feel free to layer up tops, sweaters, jackets, scarves etc to keep yourself warm. The styling rule here is: Floral pants should always remain the visual highlight of your outfit.
It really doesn’t tolerate much competition from another pattern. So combine it always with classic unicolored items, just to be on the safe side. You can go with neutrals, or any other colour that is reflected in the pattern itself, to create a harmonious look.
Another good idea is to keep the separates in the same textile family. Drapey fabrics are very much suitable to wear with your summer items. A floaty jacket or a warm scarf are also versatile options that are easy to put on and off.
Last but not least (for the fun fearless females!): Why not cover yourself head to toe in flowers, like Holland Rodem and Bailee Madison?
Ok, this look is quite “out there” and you have to know that people WILL look at you. But on the other hand, if you keep the rest of your outfit very sleek and understated, those initial looks will quickly turn into admiration.
Oh hello, autumn!
