It is hard to find a fashion staple with the same enduring appeal as a great pair of leather pants. And with the winter season upon us, it’s time to appreciate a sleek pair of leather pants.

Synonymous with rock legends and the punk scene, leather pants are a stylish way to toughen up any outfit. They’re mysterious, easy to wear and add an edgy cool vibe to almost any outfit. The Fall/Winter 2022 runways were stacked with countless variations of the crowd-pleasing leather pants, proving their longevity in the modern wardrobe and versatility.

From Rihanna to Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner to Hailey Beiber, leather pants are a sartorial staple. They're the ultimate choice for a simple and classic polish paired with trench coats, jackets, sweaters or just a cropped top.

Closer home, actor Deepika Padukone once combined two contrasting textures — soft knits and faux leather — in utmost vibrancy. On another occasion, she added a romantic touch to an otherwise edgy ensemble with a lacy printed bralette and leather trousers.

Which leather pants are in this season?

As fashion trends shift away from body-conscious cuts, straight and wide-leg styles with a sense of ease are taking centre stage. These updated leather pants are also easier to style — pair them with a light jacket and mini bag in an earthy palette and you’re good to go!

This year, loose-fitting leather pants have popped up in many street-style looks. Should you be in need of inspiration for what to wear with the said garment — simply pair it with a long trench and ’90s sunnies in the wintertime, an individualist take on city style.

It’s also worth noting that, while black is still the primary shade when it comes to leather pants, increasingly, more designers and brands are playing with neutral tones, too. Some of these leather pants come with an understated glossy finish that can easily be dressed up or down.
