Leather pants are the coolest. THE coolest. I’ve always wanted a pair. It’s a strange thing for a child to want, but I was a strange kid. Nothing says rock and roll rebel like leather pants. It’s what you wear if you wanna get back stage and hook up with the drummer. I’ve never felt cool enough to wear a leather coat without feeling like a poser, but something about slipping on leather pants….all my insecurities just seem slip out the window. Suddenly I have this blasé attitude towards life. It’s kind of like the first time you put on a push-up bra and lipstick.
I highly recommend leather pants for anyone and everyone. Even if you lack a rock and roll lifestyle. I was highly misguided into thinking they only look good on tall skinny model types, not short girls with an ass and thighs like myself. But trust me, with the right top they look good on anyone. Looking for a holiday dress for all the upcoming parties? Why not just say the hell with the dress and rock some leather pants? If your answer is because they cost up to $1000 (like the Jbrands I’m OBSESSED with), I have your solution. These “vegan” leather panel leggings from Club Monaco. They look and feel like leather and no animals were harmed to make you look like a bad ass. Plus they just have a “leather” panel at the front….the mixed materials make them feel so very current.
What I got (after searching for years for an affordable pair of “leather” pants that are wearable and don’t feel and look like plastic). The legging material on the back is really think and comfortable….they feel luxurious.
What I originally wanted (JBrand $950…I have wanted for over a year but lets be serious spending that much money on a pair of pants is insane…but I’ve had weak moments when I think well…I mean maybe I would….I’d like to think even if I could I wouldn’t)
Oh yes, I do love these pants…..
