I remember when I used to be so frightened of wearing a pair of leather trousers. I thought, nah, they are not for me. But it’s funny how fast things change in the world of fashion and now, come Autumn-Winter they become one of my go-to staples. The moral of the story – never say never.
Of course it’s not any old leather trousers that win me over, they have to have a certain je ne sais pais about them and I’m sure you’re the same.
These tapered cropped leg ones from Karen Millen are just the ticket. Soft as butter and not too clingly, with great detail like a cropped leg and a high-waist.
Yes, they are an investment but pick the right ones and they will last season after season. Pick the wrong ones and they’ll give your knees those squidgy funny faces, and after a short time they’ll start to crack.

HOW TO STYLE THEM
It’s easy to style a pair of leather trousers. Think fondly of them as your friend with all the attitude and the rest of the gang must be more softly spoken.
This amber pussy bow blouse from WtR London, is a perfect companion. The contrasting texture of this blouse, its scarf tie and a relaxed cut is perfect for work days or out evenings.
And it goes really well with a pair of high-waisted leathers.
White accessories like boots and bags are a great weapon this time of year. They give dark colours a pop of magical crispness and brighten up a dark Winter’s evening.
I don’t care if I have to be extra careful not to spill my coffee on them or make sure nobody stands on my foot. They are worth the extra effort.
This white soft top handle bag is also from WTR London.
