Baby, it’s cold outside! How can you stay warm and look HOT? When the temperature drops below freezing, I reach for any over-sized sweater in my closet. I usually pair it with corduroys, thick socks, warm boots, a long coat, scarf, hat and gloves. I’m basically unrecognizable. I’ve also found that the more layers I add, the more style I lose. It is not the look I want for a romantic date night.
I have a pair of black leather pants in my closet that are really warm. My problem is that I always seem to wear them with the same top and boots – and it gets a little boring. For inspiration on how to style leather pants, I turned to fashion icon, Olivia Palermo.
I was only expecting to find one or two photos of her in leather pants, however, they must be a staple for her. Look at how many different ways she rocks them! If you want to borrow her look, at the very end of this post are links to one of my favorite looks of hers, at an affordable price point. A deeply textured and cozy black faux fur vest with a hood ($58.00) and I like that it is on the long side. Next up, black ankle booties and lastly, black leggings that look like leather. Rock on.
*UPDATE* since this post went live, the Faux Fur Vest is almost SOLD out. There are only a handful left.
