Now don’t be scared! Some people think that leather-look pants are just for tall, skinny people, but that’s NOT the case! I think anyone can have a go at rocking these, it’s just about HOW you wear them.

Now as we know, VERSATILITY is probably the word I use the most on Chasing Cait (that, and “vertical lines”…. am I right?!) but it’s really important to see how much “bang-for-your-buck” you can get from your clothing. So let’s look at how you can wear these fun leather-look pants 3 different ways, plus I’ll show you some different options you can get your hands on right now!

Too hot!

Leather-look pants are a great way to add some wow to a night out outfit (although make sure they don’t squeak too much when you wear them, way to kill the mood on date night haha!).

The texture of the pants makes them seem more dressy than your jeans, but you can still wear pants if that’s your thing (or even it if isn’t, you can still wear them, its ok).

Add some sexy heels and a gorgeous clutch and you’re ready to go!

Too cold!

Yep. It’s freezing here in New Zealand thanks to a whopping great high over the country and these leather-look pants are a great way to stay warm as they trap the heat next to your body. (see…. sometimes it pays off to wear pleather….. wait, did I just say that out aloud!?)

Rug up with soft layers that contrast against the hard look of the leather (or faux leather in this case) and you’re all set for that smart-casual day look in Winter.

Just right

Lounging around on the weekend? Casual Friday at work? Heading out with the family for brunch? These leather-look pants are perfect for that too!

Use a more casual fabric, like the chambray shirt, to dress the whole look down. Trainers are always good for that too.

So here are a couple more options for you to try, all available now (as are the ones I’m wearing from The Warehouse. You can get them here)
