When I think about figuring out how to wear leather pants, my mind immediately goes to a particular Friends episode. You know, the one where Ross is stuck in the bathroom during a date trying to wiggle his way back into a pair of leather pants and he ends up covering himself in baby powder? The whole idea of wearing leather pants just seemed like a hassle to me until I spotted new silhouettes this season during New York Fashion Week.
Lately, skintight pants have taken a back seat to a boxier silhouette. Brands like Nanushka and Zimmermann found fresh ways of making leather dressing seem more modern and less like you're about to go to a rock concert in the '80s. Think paperbag pants and baggy trousers that all come in buttery soft leather materials, which are sometimes even vegan!
