Will I look like mutton or rocking the pleather? I've just had some delivered from Asos, sorry cant link from phone. They are basically leather look skinnies but flat fronted and zip up the back. Just tried them on and they look ok. Not too tight that my fanjo is on display for all to see but not looking too saggy either.
Had it in my head that I would wear these with black heels and a blouse type thing which would cover my bottom. Im 5ft 6 and between 10-12. However I am 38!!! Am I kidding myself on?? Needed a killer outfit for Sat and dont really do dresses. Usually wear black skinnies or cigarette pants and wanted something a bit different.
If this turns into a yay, then can anyone recommed the type of top I should be wearing?? Or is it going to be a case of go direct to jail, do not pass go and do not collect £200?
Anyone who has seen me on the boards knows I will say a big yes!
Have a look on this lovely blog, she is very stylish and cleverly wears leather with lots of items dressing it up and down. You may have to trawl back through some pages, but she has the Zara leather trousers that she rocks.
Sounds awesome. I would go for dressed down with not-too-high-heels and a not-too-dressy t-shirt if you're feeling worried, but I bet they look brilliant.
I have just ordered my umpteenth pair of leather leggings to try - I think they have to be right when they're (ridiculously £££) real leather, but I think there are so many outfit possibilities when they're right!
Chat thanks for blog link, looks like an interesting one.
No, haven't seen them - no sign of them on the website (or, more likely, I am being thick). I have just re-ordered some Drome ones from Matches (with a discount code) that I sent back earlier in the year because I wanted ones with finished bottom hems and they have a side zip. I am resigned to getting them finished now, and if the zip breaks I will just kick up an almighty fuss!
Aww thanks guys. The ones from Asos arent that different from the Topshop ones. Playing it safe with black though. Do you think black suede wedges would look ok? Or would it have to be heels? Oh and thanks for the blog link x
For me, I would want the 'daintyness' of the heels to balance the rockiness of the leather. Combined with your longer length bottom covering blouse type thing, I think the heels will be lovely. Will the trousers be full length or stop short, more 7/8 length?
But, try them with both, simple all suede black wedges might work too.
