Leather is one of those things I firmly believe everyone should have in their closet. Whether it is a jacket, a skirt, or a pair of pants, leather is always in style. These pants I am wearing are actually faux leather so they are a fraction of the cost of the real deal. I have gotten more compliments on these pants than any other pants I own. They work, as pictured above, for a casual day of running errands or for a fun night out on the town with a great pair of heels. I have yet to find an occasion for which they do not work!
Another great staple piece that has never gone out of style is a denim jacket. You can wear it with anything (other than matching denim pants!) and it is light enough to wear as a part of your outfit – not just as outerwear. I basically consider this jacket a blazer and I wear it to work all the time.
While the jacket and pants are both great individual wardrobe staples, I love love love them together. It’s a fun twist on the classic “t-shirt and jeans” look. Both the pants and the jacket work as a neutral, so you can still add a fun pop of color or a pattern to your look. My white top could easily be switched out for a bright red blouse or a graphic tee and the outfit would be just as cute. Leather and denim is always a classic and it works for everyone, no matter what you style may be. If leather pants are too far outside of your comfort zone, then pair a great leather jacket with your favorite jeans and you’ll look just as fabulous!
