Leather pants can be tricky, and there are ways to get around wearing them if you don’t want to fully commit. But if you’re feeling brave enough to take the plunge, here are a few things you should know before putting on those tight-ass bottoms. You don’t want to end up like Ross from Friends dumping baby powder all over your legs. Check out our tips below and click the slideshow for even more.

Your shirt must cover your butt.

This is probably thee most important tip for pulling-off leather pants. The only time your shirt should not go past your behind is if the leather pants are loose. Otherwise tight on tight just doesn’t look right, if you know what I mean.

No leather on leather.

This most applies to leather pants with leather shoes, but also leather tops, jackets, etc. Your leather pants should be the only part of the look that’s this material. Otherwise you’ll look like you’re dressed in a biker chick Halloween costume, or part of a motorcycle gang.

Don’t wear open toe shoes.

Leather is such a cold weather thing that it just looks weird to pair it with open toes shoes. Your best bet for shoes are flats and pumps. Boots and booties work too as long as they don’t go past your ankle. And definitely no ankle-strap shoes of any kind. The trick to wearing shoes with leather pants is that the shoes shouldn’t go over the pants, one should end where the other begins.
