Fashion for leather pants is here to stay. And the thing that I admire most about them is how adaptable they are.
Whether I’m going to the office, going out, or just lounging around on the weekend, I have a pair of leather pants that will suit the occasion.
I just reach for my leather pants when it’s not too hot for pants but not cool enough for shorts.
What To Wear With Leather Pants For A Night Out
Leather pants are perfect for a night on the town when paired with heels and a gorgeous blouse or sweater. You can choose a classic black-and-white design or try bolder color combinations to match your leather pants. Some outfits you could try out with your leather pants include;
- Coats, jackets, or other form-fitting outerwear
Wearing a cold coat or jacket over a fitted top, turtleneck, crop top, or tank is a great way to dress up a pair of leather pants. It’s an easy-to-pull-off pairing that highlights the pants without drawing too much attention to them. These days’ leather pants look best with tops that draw a little bit of attention to the waist area.
- Sweater and leather pants outfits
Sweaters are soft and cozy, and it’s simple to see if they look good with your leather pants. It’s simple to style, and you can even tuck in the front of your sweater if you want to. You can even try out new ways by switching out your footwear.
- Dressy blouses
A pair of leather pants and a flowing top or blouse might be what you need for a night out. Depending on your choice of accessories and footwear, you can easily transition from the workplace to a night out with these leather pants.
You can match it with a blazer for the office and dress it down with a leather jacket and heels for a night on the town!
- Graphic tops
Wearing leather pants and a graphic top is a fantastic way to show some edge. The style can be easily replicated with a graphic band t-shirt or a simple white t-shirt if you like to keep things on a low setting.
- Oversized sweaters
During fall and winter seasons, oversized sweaters look great with leather pants.
For a chic look, you can try out leather pants with a chunky knit sweater in a luxurious material like wool or cashmere. When paired with either ankle boots or combat boots, leather pants make for an outfit ready for anything.
What Kind Of Tops Goes With Leather Pants?
Leather pants are great options for complementing sweaters, t-shirts, bodysuits, button-up blouses, denim jackets, and leather jackets very well.
If you want to look more fitted, you can use leather pants with a slim fit.
- Leather on leather
Leather pants with a leather jacket may seem odd, but they look good. It’s trendy and edgy and is appropriate for date nights and going to a concert with pals.
It would be best if you keep your leather jacket and pants in the same color family. It looks fantastic to wear all-black outfits, but you can also lighten up the look by wearing grey leather pants and a coat with a black top underneath to contrast the tones.
- White button-up shirt
One of the best ways to complement a pair of leather pants is with a fresh white cotton button-up top, especially if the leather is black. This leather pants ensemble is fashionable yet still professionally fitted for the workplace or a business meeting.
What’s more? You can choose a pair of ankle boots or leather loafers and an oversized button-up shirt to boost the outfit’s appearance.
- With blazers
It’s easy to dress up a pair of leather pants for the office by wearing them with a printed blouse and a black blazer.
Although black or another neutral color are options you can try depending on your personal taste; you can spice things up with an unexpected color.
- With puffer coats
A puffer coat and leather pants make for a great winter casual outfit, and you can wear them anywhere. They’ll keep you warm, and the leather pants will also give you an edge.
You could try a cropped puffer jacket for longer limbs or opt instead for a longer puffer coat during winter.
- Striped cardigans and trench coats
If you’re going for a more subdued look, try wearing your leather pants with a fitted sweater and a long wool or trench coat in a coordinating neutral tone.
Camel colors over black leather pants are great too, but other jewel tones are welcome.
What Shoes Go With Leather Pants?
You can pair leather pants with just about every shoe. The correct pair of leather pants can complement a wide variety of footwear, from sneakers to heels to boots to sandals.
Heels made of the same material as the pants, suede boots, or sleek, contemporary loafers are some of the most classic shoe options for wearing with leather pants.
Some shoes you can pair with leather pants are;
- Tall Suede Boots
Shoes made of suede are more complementary to leather pants than those made of either leather or patent. The reason is suede offers a unique texture and prevents an overly coordinated appearance. It’s a great way to give an outfit some extra pizzazz and depth.
Suede is also a great option if you would like your boot color to contrast with your pant color. The suede’s rough surface complements the leather’s natural grain and hue.
- Stiletto Heels
When donning a pump, you can get away with a more daring choice of fabric and hue for your footwear. The leather of the pants and also the texture/color of the shoes are brought together by the peek of your skin color.
When paired with slim leather pants, sneakers are a laid-back yet stylish option. I’d rather go for a darker-colored sneaker, especially with black or brown leather pants. White’s great too. And to get people staring below, make sure your ankles are showing to give you that unique look.
- Leather Shoes
It’s best to use nearly identical leathers for a functional yet fashionable combo. I think I can’t stop tucking my shoes under the pant leg, so it looks continuous. That’s one way to style your leather pant too.
What To Wear With Faux Leather Pants
Now that more comfortable pant styles, including faux leather cargo pants, are readily accessible and trendy, beige faux leather ones are an excellent option for casual everyday wear thanks to their roomy cut and large pockets.
You can match them with a trendy cropped sweater worn over a simple tank top and some comfortable sneakers.
Since some brands of faux leather pants incorporate spandex, they tend to be tight-fitting. To counteract their tightness, a looser-fitting top will do the trick.
For footwear, try chunky boots, flats, sandals, a tank top, or a short-sleeved button-down shirt for a casual look. This will project an urban aesthetic look while still being comfortable for everyday use.
You can match your faux leather pants with heels and a long-sleeved blouse or dress shirt. That’s if you want to look a little more put together without going overboard and feeling uncomfortable.
Then, to complete the look, wear a pair of high heels and accessorize with bold jewelry pieces.
How To Style Your Leather Pants
Style-wise, there are no bounds to what you can do with leather pants. You can match them with a gorgeous shirt and heels or go for a classic, laid-back approach by wearing them with graphic tees and a denim jacket.
You could choose an oversized sweater and some combat boots for a more relaxed look. Also, accessorizing with a studded belt or a big necklace will give your look that extra edge you’re going for.
Your leather pants will attract attention no matter how you style them. So, enjoy trying out new styles until you discover one you love.
Here are some tips on how to accessorize your leather pants best:
- Never mind the stereotype that rock stars only wear leather pants; anyone can wear them. You should use neutral colors like black or brown and avoid flashy hues.
- The same holds for footwear; instead of cowboy boots that veer toward haute couture, opt for dress boots made of leather or sneakers.
- You’ll notice certain key differences if you go for synthetic leather pants. Even though suede is the most neutral fabric, it usually requires the most care. Lamb leather, on the other hand, is the most convenient because of its affordable price and easy care.
- At first, many people might find leather pants too stiff. But, similar to new jackets and boots, the material will stretch and soften over time, making it more comfortable to wear. You can pair it with classic pieces like denim jackets, fitted T-shirts, or quality knitwear.
- You can consider pairing a winter coat with leather pants. Nothing says “cool” or “stylish,” like a pair of leather pants, a coat, and some sleek black heels. You can also try a splash of color in your leather pants and finish off the look with neutral staples.
