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.
