8 Pairs Of Leather Pants We Want To Live In This Winter

Ditching our denim for these.

Leather pants are synonymous with Rock ’n Roll superstars, the punk revolution pioneered with the designs of Vivienne Westwood, and, basically, the entirety of the ‘90s.

While their popularity may have waned since then, like most fashion trends, leather trousers have come full circle.

Despite not being able to shake the imagery of Ross in *that* Friends episode, we couldn’t be more thrilled by the stylish winter staple’s return to the fashion forefront, namely because they’re taking on a far more relaxed fit than their figure-strangling predecessor.

Wide, straight and tapered leg styles have been adopted by the fashion set, giving the ‘90s mainstay a much more wearable, and chic, update.

The perfect alternative to the jeans, leather pants prove to be a versatile piece capable of pairing back with almost any style—knits, blazers, coats, even more leather—and therefore, are a worthy investment.

Are leather pants a trend or staple?

Leather pants will always be a wardrobe staple in our eyes. A timeless fabrication and neutral colour, leather pants prove versatile in their styling capabilities with an ability to be dresses up or down.

Let’s just say, we’ve never met a pair of leather pants that didn’t look elevated or pulled together.

Should you size up in leather pants?

When it comes to finding your perfect size in leather pants, there’s no hard and fast rule. Every pair and style is different—some are a relaxed or wide leg shape while others are slim or straight leg styles.

If you want your new leather pants to fit in the same way they do on the fit model opt for your usual size.

We also recommend looking at customer reviews on sizing—do they run small or large? Are they true to size?—as well as reading the sizing guide and measurements.
