Leather weather is back!! I say this often, but leather weather is my favorite kind of weather. Leather jackets are amazing and add an instant ‘cool factor’ to anyone who wears them, but other leather pieces? I’ve always hesitated because I couldn’t imagine them being particularly flattering to someone who carries most of their weight in their midsection. On a whim, I tried these faux leather front skinny pants from Lane Bryant, and you know what? They’re incredibly flattering.
It doesn’t hurt that they are generously cut and outside of the faux leather, they are made from a super stretchy cotton and spandex blend. I’m not a huge fan of how shiny they are, though they do photograph more shiny than they appear in person. Next on my list is a leather pencil skirt and a leather tee.
Have you picked up any leather pieces this season? Secrets don’t make friends. 😉
