Leather trousers are known to be the spring-summer 2023 style trend, they seem very intimidating to style because of their bold heavy outlook, but the truth is when dealing with such fabric, it’s good to go light-handed with other elements of the look. For example, leather trousers can be paired with lightweight cotton poplin shirts, linen poplin shirts, or stripy poplin shirts, including crop tops, denim shirts, linen blazers in neutrals and pastels, etc. The look can be finished with white strappy sandals, a white top handle bag, or a structured flap bag, the list goes on.
I believe leather trousers are great as transitional wear in the spring season, I’m not sure if it’s something to wear in the summer season because they resist water and your sweat is more apparent when worn on hot days. But can be worn in-between weather days in spring and autumn and you can continue wearing it into the winter season. This is why they make a great wardrobe binder and a fashion staple you will get good wear out of.
They also come in various types, we have the fitted version which is commonly known as leather leggings, joggers, flared, and straight leg, and we also have the wide-leg baggy version which is the focus of today’s style article. All things baggy and oversized have become super chic this season, and to have fun with this style trend is not to be afraid of the super size but embrace and stunt in them.
There are some leather trousers that come in faux leather, vegan leather, and real leather, the options are all up to you, and they will all look stylish whichever you go for. To style it as a transitional piece, go for a chocolate baggy wide-leg leather trousers and pair them with a blue denim shirt or strippy shirt, tuck it in and place a dark beige sweater on the shoulder for soft spring warmth or put it on when the weather is rather chilly, then finish the look with a brown leather flap bag, white slingback pumps and you’re ready for whatever the spring season brings.
To add texture and interest to your overall look, go for the matte version although some do come shiny which is not so much of a bad option. I believe to achieve a classic look the matte version with a buttery matte texture that stretches will give that comfort you need. They also come in a variety of colourways, which can range from black, chocolate, khaki green, tan, etc if you ask me the khaki green and chocolate will be a go-to this season, not that there is anything wrong with the black, but I think it’s a common colour we’ve all seen before, the khaki green or chocolate paired with blue denim shirt will be a show stopper.
