I myself admit to being hesitant when it comes to wearing leather pants. A few years ago, I bought a pair of leather leggings and have only managed to wear them once. This is really saying something, considering the fact that I’m quite the style chameleon and am constantly finding ways to mix it up.
Despite what you may have heard, leather pants are not limited to bikers, rockers and punks. Regardless of your style, you can make leather pants work for you. It’s just a matter of selecting the appropriate accessories and staying true to your personal style.
Lauren Conrad goes for an effortless look by pairing her leather pants with a loose-fitting blouse and heels. Because both of these outfits contain a dark color palette, they are more suitable for a night out.
Miranda Kerr is always on the go! The next time you’re running errands, grab a classic wool coat, your favorite flats and a chic scarf.
Lots of layering will add much panache to your look.
I never thought that an ensemble consisting of leather pants could come across as bohemian. A drapey, floral cardigan and lace cami soften the harshness of the black leather.

I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly willing to give leather pants another chance. My pair of leggings will be making an appearance in 2012! How about yours?
