How To Wear Leather Pants Like Karlie Kloss & Winnie Harlow
As Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, it's easy to spot the major trends celebrities have turned to throughout its duration. A handful of the most well-known supermodels took a break from fittings and runway shows when they walked the streets of Paris wearing various forms of an edgy, rock-and-roll inspired statement piece. These A-list celebrities effortlessly demonstrated how to wear leather pants while looking completely polished and put together.
Following a models lead when it comes to street style dressing is nothing new, especially in a fashion hot spot like Paris. In fact, sometimes the off-duty styles are just as trend-setting as the runway shows. Leather pants have proven themselves over the past week to be an outfit-completing piece that works for just about every occasion. Wear skinny leather leggings with an oversized, graphic tee, a blazer, and sneakers for an elevated casual ensemble. Or, try wearing wide-leg leather trousers, a cropped sweater, and pumps for your next dinner date.
In other words, this piece is an easy, one-step way to add a little bit of excitement to an outfit full of basics. You really can't go wrong when styling leather pants in your day-to-day life.
Ahead, The Zoe Report breaks down the best leather-pant moments of Paris Fashion Week, as seen on Winnie Harlow, Kendall Jenner, and more. Plus, we went ahead and scouted out the exact pairs you should be investing in this season.
Model Winnie Harlow wore a unique, zipper-detailed pair of leather pants to add some texture to her monochrome black outfit on Sept. 29. She paired her leather with a simple black turtleneck, logo-printed ankle boots, a shoulder bag, and a glamorous pair of narrow-framed sunglasses.
Karlie Kloss experimented with the popular trend while simultaneously keeping up with the resurgence of all things '90s. She wore a wide-leg, mid-rise pair of leather pants, paired with a cropped blue sweater, and black pointed loafers. The model stayed casual by pulling her hair back into a low bun with face-framing pieces.
Although lately it seems as if skinny jeans are a thing of the past, Kaia Gerber is proof that skinny leather pants are very much in style. She paired the form-fitting bottoms with chunky sneakers, a black t-shirt, and a menswear, pinstriped blazer. The model completed the look with a white bucket hat and tiny glasses.
Kendall Jenner took leather pants in a whole different direction by wearing a pair featuring a lace-up waist, flared legs, and a snakeskin print. She finished off the look with a long-sleeve black top and square-toe white boots. Just like her model contemporaries, Jenner protected her eyes from the flashes of the paparazzi with a pair of skinny sunglasses.
