How to Wear Leather Pants and Leggings

The Non-Biker-Bar Way to Wear Leather Leggings

Throw any apprehension about wearing leather leggings out the window — they're easy to wear and a nice alternative to jeans when, mid-Winter, you've gotten so tired of wearing them you could nearly scream. There are three looks we consistently find ourselves creating whenever we wear a pair, and each one has an occasion it's perfect for. Try it with an oversize plaid shirt and ankle boots for a day at the office, and then make it work for date night with a chunky sweater and spiky stiletto booties. For the weekend? Shop for a varsity t-shirt that has the same boxy fit as your favorite sweatshirt, and wear comfy shoes like wedge sneakers.

Shop from left to right, top to bottom: Topshop oversize check shirt ($68), Blank NYC vegan leather leggings ($98), Acne Alma booties ($540), La Garconne chunky turtleneck ($450), Velvet jersey and faux-leather leggings ($267), Alexandre Birman suede and snake-print boots ($337, originally $675), Zara t-shirt ($50), Helmut Lang leather leggings ($920), Isabel Marant Bobby wedge sneakers ($695)
