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!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣

Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
