Fashion Victim; Three Ways To Wear Leather Trousers

Leather trousers made a bit of a resurgence in the last decade, having been – in my eyes – a bit of a New Romantic garment. Nowadays leather no longer needs to mean skin tight – with A-Line dresses, joggers and even pleated skirts adding an edge to previously understated outfits.

It’s been a good long while since my last Three Ways to Wear post where I was looking ahead to the excitement of summer, and styling a simple white t-shirt; this time however we’ll be looking at styles suitable for our unpredictable Autumn weather.

I’ll level with you in that, given my waistline and thighs, I really have no business wearing leather anything – and yet I love it. My leather-look leggings from last year are my absolute go-to garments, especially in the winter as they’re waterproof while being fleece lined!

These are the trousers we’ll be basing our looks around for this blog, they’re £25.99 from New Look but at the moment you can save 20% when you spend £40 or more.

The trousers feature a high waist with a zip fastening, pockets (!) and a tapered leg in a shorter length for an effortlessly cool look.

These are a real staple piece for the Autumn and can be styled in a real variety of ways.


A perfect look for either the office or a shopping spree, the mustard from this jumper ties in nicely into the pattern of the shoes.

Leopard Pattern Chain Backless Loafer £29.99

Mustard Ribbed High Neck Split Hem Jumper £23.99

Another super versatile outfit, this wouldn't look out of place in the conference room, nor for a weekend sightseeing in the Capital.

This look is perfect for heading into the city centre for drinks, or settling into a bar for the evening.

White Scuba Bralette £13.99

Dogtooth Button Front Blazer £39.99

To summarise, leather trousers are the pinnacle of rewearable fashion - I'd love to know how you'd style yours!
