(Faux) Leather Looks


I've really been loving the leather pant trend, but it was hard to justified the spend.  Afterall, price-per-wear  is crucial to my clothing purchasing decisions.When I found these nicely priced BlankNYC faux leather pants, I was pretty excited, but still needed to come up with some styling ideas (even at a good price, if I can only come up with one was to wear them its not worth it). I pulled together some looks for different occasions.

Work: Keep it classic; stick with a crisp white button up, classic blazer and to unrock n' roll them, stick to flats. This look probably isn't for every office, but in a place that isn't all suits and ties it will work.
Blazer, Gap (Old): good choice and another
Blouse, DKNY: similar here
Shoes, BCBGenerationl: similar here

Weekend: Keep it comfy and cool.  Layered with a longer sweater or a slouchy sweater and some combat boots you're ready for brunch with the girls.
Sweater, Kensie (old): Try this one
Denim Shirt, not sure the brand, but here's a great choice
Boots, Gentle Souls: similar from same brand, these are good, too.

Date Night: Obviously skinny leather (or Faux) pants are sexy, so play it up with more feminine touches like a silk top.  And here's a great time to show off confidence in a great high heel.
Silk top, For Love and Liberty (old):
same (which I LOVE) brand, different top here
Fur collar, vinatge: many great option on Ebay
