You thought circulation-hampering skinny jeans were bad? Try leather pants!

Everyone who’s ever worn skinny jeans knows they’re a a bit of a hassle to wear, but leather pants are somehow even worse. They trap heat and generate sweat, and if they aren’t styled correctly, they exude an “I’ve-been-watching-too-may-biker-movies” vibe. Plus… washing them? Not an easy feat.

But, reservations aside, these pants do look fierce when worn correctly. While we can’t help you with the washing issue, we can give you some styling inspiration to make sure you’re not rocking that “I-got-lost-on-the-way-to-the-biker-bar” look. Check out looks from these five bloggers.

1. Agata from Laughing in the Purple Rain


Pair your leather pants with a graphic tee, boots and a coat. What better way to channel your inner rock star than with a Guns ‘n Roses tee paired with leather-on-leather? Punctuate the look with some ankle-high or thigh-high boots, round sunnies and a beanie, and you are good to go.

2. Micah from Raww (Blog Offline)

There’s no way your outfit will resemble a biker’s if you pair your leather pants with a classy coat. Micah’s cobalt blue laminated coat offsets the tough leather pants, and a punch of color never hurts an outfit.

3. Lucy from Lovely by Lucy

Lovely by Lucy

Streetwear lovers, this is your look. Lucy’s baggy leather pants work well with her minimalist sweater, and the canvas loafers and baseball cap put the perfect finishing touches on her outfit.

4. Jessica from Ms. Vintage Virgin

Jessica took inspiration from Moschino by throwing a preppy plaid coat over her outfit. Plaid and leather? Jessica made this combination look really cute! Throw in a statement tee and a pair of pumps for a statement look.

5. Wows from With or Without Shoes

With or Without Shoes

Leather pants don’t have to be black. Take a cue from “With or Without Shoes” and don a colored pair. We love the fall-colored palette of this look.

So, now that you have the inspiration, it’s time to get the pants. Shopbop has plenty of various styles of leather pants to choose from.
