Last year, we went through the same growing pains with leather leggings, (and look where we are now). We wondered, were they:
a) totally awesome pants that would make you look like a rockstar? OR…
b) a trend that would only work on blonde women under one hundred pounds, and totally silly for the rest of us to consider?
Needless to say, one year later, we’ve clearly settled on “a”–and leather pants are bringing us a new challenge–the leather-paneled jean. Championed by Rag & Bone, these pants combine denim and leather for unexpected results–but do they work?
After much perusing the web (and actually trying on a pair or two for ourselves), our answer is yes, yes, a million times yes! Not only do they look infinitely cooler than regular jeans, dressing up a simple tee effortlessly, but these awesome pants actually elongate legs. Ladies, do not leave this one for the models–go out and get yourself a pair ASAP. You can start by checking out our faves in the slideshow.
