I have had few informal meetings and am always undecided on what to wear to bring out the chic, trendy and street smart look which is usually my style! Having so many outfits that could bring that out, it’s always hard to settle on which to choose because each of the choices are strong and will serve well. Recently, I was going on a meeting with a business man who wanted some collaboration on a business that is still coming up and I came up with this outfit. I was a bit skeptical about it, even a friend was, until I stepped out of the door. There and then I knew I had nailed it, and even my friend eventually was in agreement that I did.

There are always those few clothing and beauty looks that make us feel exceptionally powerful. Whether you’re sporting hot red lipstick, sky-high heels, or a colorful statement necklace, we all have our trends we wear with confidence. One trend I’ve always admired was the leather pants (faux) or any piece of cloth that has some faux leather. I don’t know if it’s just my secret desire to be Cat woman since i was a kid, or a sexy mysterious city diva, lol, but leather pants are one of those clothing items I drool over.

I’ll be honest with you guys: leather pants have always stumped me when it comes to styling. When they’re worn correctly and paired with the right items, they can look amazing – chic, glam, and impossibly cool. Not only do they look good on everyone, but you can basically style them like a pair of black skinny jeans — meaning, they match everything (and are way more comfy than skinny jeans).

I find leather pants great for showing off those beautifully toned legs without showing some skin. Since they’re usually form-hugging, they are a good way to flaunt your toned legs as it ends up showing all your bulges and flaws esp if you’re bottom-heavy. To avoid looking like all-geared up to take a dive in the waters in this hot weather, I decided to pair the leather pants with silk printed and meshed top to keep it balanced and stylish. Funny thing about this top, the collar is faux leather too! How great is that coincidence! I added the green pair of heels and purse to kinda match it with the top, making it look like theme color which was not really the idea…

The principles when wearing leather pants are to prevent making them extremely sexy since they already are. Therefore, balancing this natural hotness is always a great idea. Do not over complicate your attire. Leather pants don’t need to be supported with over-striking prints or embellished textures. Just stick to a reasonably neutral color that will make the leather pop! You may go all-black; just be sure to play with various textures to create depth and interest.

Depending on the style you opt for, leather pants can be exceptionally versatile. Though they can be tight and sometimes unforgiving, take your chances in teaming your leather pants with textures and shapes so you’ll be a show stopper! It’s all about choosing a great pair of leather pants with a trim and design to fit your figure, something perfect for your complexion, and complementing them to particular tops and shoes to get that uncomplicated refined look.

Try them and tell me your thoughts. XoXo.

Btw, this was really a fun shoot,adventurous and daring! One of my best so far!
