You May Never Find The Perfect Man, But There Is Always The Perfect Leather Pant.


            As the days get longer and ever-so-slightly more bearable, I’m torn between optimistically moving all of my winter pieces to the back of the closet or sensibly sticking it out in my parka for a few more weeks. One item I’m having a hard time letting go of is my favorite pair of skinny leather pants.  Clinging to the security of that barely-there thigh gap they create when slipped on, I am determined to bring them into my spring wardrobe.

            Updating your skinny leather pants with a few easy styling tricks can transform them into a year-round-staple. Using Olivia Palermo as inspiration, a favorite pair can smoothly transition your entire collection into the spring months. Aided by Olivia’s expertise and personal style, here are a few quick tips for making them work to your advantage: 



·      Olivia’s affinity for the classics has been documented by nearly every street style photographer on the market. Her quality over quantity strategy results in a number of ogle-worthy investment pieces, which, thanks to their simple silhouettes, can be pared with pretty much anything.  A chunky sweater and croc bag are all you need to create that downtown, girl-on-the-go vibe 




·      Oversized (light) outerwear is a great tactic for keeping warm on those chilly April nights.
·      Leather pants aren’t traditionally appropriate for the office, but with the right accouterments such as a polished bag and menswear-inspired extras they can fit in with a creative environment.

  



·      Never underestimate the power of color in those in-between seasons. Adding even a tiny dose of color in the form of accessories - like Olivia’s ballet flats- can change the entire mood of your look. But beware: you’ll be receiving buzzing bumblebee references for the rest of the day.
