How To Wear Leather Pants From Work To Cocktails

When most people think of leather pants, they might immediately think of motorcycles or rock and roll. A work outfit is probably not the first thing that comes to mind, but I’m showing you guys today how this cool wardrobe staple can absolutely be styled for the office and beyond.

My favorite thing about leather pants is how versatile they are. I have several of them in different colors (black, maroon and white), and I can confidently say that I will never get rid of them. They are still relevant season over season without fail, and while they might feel like a big initial investment, for me they have paid for themselves ten times over with the amount of wear that I’ve gotten out of them.

Not only are they versatile, but they’re appropriate for so many different settings. Bachelorette party with stilettos and a bustier top? Check. Shopping at the farmer’s market on Saturday with a boyfriend tee and sneakers? Check. And believe it or not – worn for work with a cool blouse? You bet! I’m here in London, and I recently wore this look to a meeting with a brand. I felt chic but still professional, and loved having the opportunity to put my own twist on a career look. Leather pants are a great alternative to basic trousers, as they add texture and style to your look that really takes it to the next level.

The best part? I wore this exact look straight out to the pub with some old friends. The trick to styling leather pants from work to a night out is the top and shoe choices that you pair them with. This cool blouse from Frame has fun sleeves that make it a bit more stylish than your average work button-up, and I went for cool croc slides rather than pumps. Shop some of my favorite leather pants below, and unexpected pieces to style them with!
