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!

  • Having a daughter of my own has made me realize more than ever how important it is to teach our children about female empowerment. One way I love educating Honor about girl power is through storytelling. I have discovered some truly empowering and uplifting books with examples of brilliant trailblazing women in history or fictional stories about independent and courageous girls who carve out their own paths in life. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on #FrontRoe that I have read to Honor or gifted to special young ladies in my life! Link in bio. http://liketk.it/2F1Zr #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Do you remember how short my hair was when I first started using @BondiBoost Hair Growth range a few months ago!? Wow has it grown and thickened up fast! I took it with me to England and had to hide it in Honor’s suitcase when we flew home so Mum wouldn’t steal it, LOL. If you’re looking to grow your hair I highly recommend trying this Aussie made, cruelty-free haircare brand. #BoostYourRoots #BondiBoost #Sponsored
  • The night before moving to LA over ten years ago, I watched Pretty Woman for the millionth time, to get me in the mood (not because I wanted to be a prozzie, but rather because I couldn’t wait to strut down Rodeo Drive 🛍) and ten years later, the street is still just as magical 💫 🌴

  • We have some big news! 
After a decade living in LA, we are going to be spending more time in London. We want Honor to be closer to family, to friends back home, and to the English countryside. We aren’t turning our backs on America (we’ll be splitting our time!) But over the coming months, Mackenzie and I will be house-hunting in England, traveling around Europe and sharing every moment with you guys. 
I’m feeling super emotional writing this. What a big change. I will be forever grateful to the experiences, friendships, jobs and sunshine Los Angeles has given me, but it’s time for a new family chapter. 
Now where should we visit on our new European adventure?? As always, thank you guys for your constant ♥️ and support!
