Just Dandy

12th November, 2012

Let’s talk about leather pants, shall we? It’s a fashion proposition I’ve been wanting to try for a while, so I was kind of outrageously excited when Trussardi sent these over for me to test drive ~ and the experience did not disappoint. While I’d previously considered options in fail-safe black, I’ve found this burnt orange iteration to be surprisingly versatile. While black would automatically feel really rock n’ roll, these allow for slightly more dapper styling ~ a preppier, dandier interpretation of a new fashion stalwart.With that dichotomy in mind, I’ve been wearing this pair with really buttoned-up basics ~ a tailored twist to balance out the second-skin slinkiness. What do you think; would you give leather pants a chance?

    I love the IDEA of faux leather pants but it would be about finding the right thickness, style, cut, and feel for me. This is a place where I’m very very picky!

    I would LOVE to give leather pants and chance and hadn’t really considered any colour other than black but I think these do indeed add a new dimension – they also look a fantastic fit. Shame they’re so far out of my budget though – perhaps they’ll send me a pair too?!

    I’ve always wanted to try leather pants and agree with you on this colour being such a fun alternative to the typical “rock n’ roll” black leather pants, what a beautiful colour for this time of year and beautifully paired with wardrobe classics.

    Wow, this outfit is so well put together! I really like the whole dapper theme. LOVE the jacket + sweater + hat combo; it really balanced out the more daring orange leather pants. You really rocked them, but I’d feel safer with black, haha.
