Leather pants arehardly news at this point -I’m fairly confident most stylish wardrobes around the globe count a pair or two. However, if the catwalks are anything to go by, this season isnot so muchabout the model-off duty spray-on skinny. Instead, Topshop
and Derek Lam
, to name but a few, introduced us tothe staple’sedgier -ever so slightlyghetto -older brother: the XXL baggy pant
. Now, as unflaterring as voluminous leather aroundthe hips may sound, consider this: not only is this badass newcomer extra-comfy, butit is also perfectly in tune with therise of oversized
, a silhouette many of us arecraving to achieve this fall (that’s not just me right?). And given the popularity of exaggerated shapes, why not take the look up a notch by adding leather to the equation. Meanwhile, for those of ya who are not feelin’ it, how about the barely-baggy, cuffed at the leg rendition,as seen above. A rather enticing compromise that may just have hit the nail on the head. Want.
