Nothing beats the subversive lustre of leather, especially when it’s made into skin-tight pants that hug and accentuate every womanly curve. But ever since Jonathan Anderson cut wide-legged, karate-inspired interpretations for his spring/ summer 2015 début at Loewe, we’ve been witnessing a different generation of leather pants take over the sidewalks. Gone are the skinny fits that only hardcore rockers and leggy models can slide into. Instead, the most alluring leather pants have loosened up in terms of form and cut, boasting slouchier silhouettes that offer greater comfort. From luxurious high-waist slacks to sport culottes that move fluidly with every step, pair them with preppy jackets and juxtapose the collegiate effect with statement accessories. The good news? You can live dangerously without having to forsake comfort.
