leather story

Q: How can I make leather pants look toned down?

A: Treat them like jeans. Throw on a chunky sweater or simple tee, minimal jewelry and neutral accessories. Let them be the statement piece, and keep the rest of your outfit neutral and simple. Also, make sure the leather pants fit properly; you may even have to buy the size up and have them altered a bit. It’s worth it- too tight leather is bad, bad, BAD. They should be snug enough to leave some room for stretch, but you should be able to get in them with ease. If you still feel self-conscious, buy leather leggings instead and wear a tunic over them to cover any problem areas.
