For years, we’ve seen our favorite fashion influencers wearing leather bottoms—from skirts and leggings to pants and jeans— but sometimes they can be tricky to style. Given the racy, super-sexy vibe that leather fabric comes with, you may think jeans are not the most office-appropriate garb and should stay in the back of your closet until you’re heading for a night out, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Paired with something more casual like a graphic tee or even a cozy sweater, you can achieve a more laid-back look, even when you’re wearing a smoking pair of leather pants. Heading to a big meeting? Couple your leather jeans with a white button-up for a more elegant, tailored look.
We’ve rounded up some blogger inspo, as well as our favorite picks for faux leather and real leather pants, ahead.
