We all need a little leather this fall. It's the perfect trend to keep things sexy. I'm not kidding when I tell you I have tried on DOZENS this fall--but nothing struck me as perfect (meaning nothing made me want to whip out my AMEX). When I slipped this pair on it was game over. They are sublime. Let's talk about them.
I wear a lot of boots in the fall and a lot of pants. It's so cold in NYC that I only bust out skirts and dresses on rare occasions. Leather makes sense for me. Investing in this pair of Paige Paloma Leggings ($299) at Bergdorf Goodman was a big fall purchase. But ladies, I was smitten. The back side is stretchy. The leather on the front is supple and the waist band hides a lot of sins. They don't sit too low or too high. In other words? Perfection.
But do note: you can't show the waistband. You have to cover up the top of the pants. Which is great since leather can be tricky to pull off.
I think the key is not to go overboard. With a tight top or sequins these leggings are over-the-top, but with a flowy blouse and a tuxedo jacket it feels subtly sexy. Think more Kate Beckinsale and less Kim Kardashian.
I layered a top from Jennifer Lopez fro Kohl's with an old, old Ralph Lauren tuxedo jacket. I added the Stella & Dot Kahlo Bib Necklace ($228) and shoes and bag from H&M. I would say this outfit really sums up how I'm dressing these days. A little edge and a little big of classics. TIP: Don't be afraid to see your style evolve!
