I don’t know if it’s the fact that fall arrived almost overnight or I’ve got a penchant for all things leather pants (and the bad boys and girls who wear them,) but lately I’m obsessed with finding the right pair for myself. I’m in the quest for just the right pair – something sort of rocker cool but different than the basic leather jeans. I’m on a Goldilocks-esque quest for just the right pair – not too rock and roll (lace-ups), not too country (Western-style), not too terribly tight, but juuuuust right.
Enter designer Isabel Marant with what could be the perfect pair of leather pants since Jim Morrison. A gorgeous pair of lamb leather leggings (read: perfect amount of stretch) with calf leather fringe (a huge theme of her fall collection.) It’s like Donny and Marie finally decided on the perfect mixture of a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll and this was the mind-blowing result. I love them. I LOVE THEM.
I love the idea of this pair of pants with something so simple so nothing competes (and really, what wardrobe item would win?)…like a simple turtleneck, a cuff and spike-heeled ankle boots. But honestly, a white V-neck t-shirt would do. These pants – and the woman in them – would be the star of any occasion.
