Sleek in leather

From being a wardrobe staple only for a "true" rocker, leather pants have made their move into the the rest of our closets; now they are essential for every self-respected fashionista. Genuine leather, “pleather” and even coated denim with their characteristic glossy finishes are all great options depending on your preferences and the amount of money you want to spend.

One of the greatest things about leather pants is their undeniable edge. They transform and elevate even the simple white T-Shirt, taking it from pedestrian commodity to minimalistic chic. Pair them with a tailored blazer and a sleek pair of stilettos, add chunky bold jewelry and you are ready for a “rock'in” night out!

Considering that leather is not exactly a summer fabrication you can always pick coated denim instead. Breathable and relatively thin, it’ll be much more comfortable on hot sunny days and the amount of available colors is very vast and bright – so good for the vivid summer season!
