If leather pants are a little out of your comfort zone, try starting with leather or coated leather jeans instead! You might remember these cool coated jeans from Good American from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They are super flattering, stretchy and comfortable. The look of the coated leather is so chic and sophisticated, and the fit is great. They have a high waist and a trendy straight-leg silhouette (that’s easier to style than you think!). I wear them with a cool camisole with chain detail, a leather blazer and boots. I would wear this look to dinner, but you could easily dress it up for errands or carpool by wearing a t-shirt and sneakers. Quick size indication on the jeans … they run very small. I would recommend taking 1-2 sizes larger than your normal size.

Trust me, I’ve tried a lot of leather, faux leather and vegan leather pants… And THESE are my new favorites. They add impact and make a statement, but are effortless at the same time. That’s not an easy combination to find! They feel great against the skin and breathe more than any other leather garment I’ve ever worn. And somehow they are stretchy! I know… it’s a mystery to me too. Not sure what kind of magic is woven into the fabric! AND, the paper bag waistline is super flattering.
Style tip: I like to tie the waist belt to the side – it looks more elegant and doesn’t draw attention directly to the center of the stomach.
I paired these pants with a basic white button-down shirt and a pair of gorgeous Isabel Marant black ankle boots. Wow. When I saw these boots I knew I had to have them! This exact pair is sold out and from last year so I linked a different version. But you could easily wear black boots or flats with heels that you already have in your closet. You can also exchange the shirt for a t-shirt or sweater.
Leather pants older than 40 . to wear
Don’t size up – So there may be a temptation to size up, but don’t! The leather stretches. You want them to fit like a second skin. Keep it simple – Leather pants are a standout piece, so it’s important to keep the rest of your look simple and classic. Accessories/shoes – Shoe choice is important. To maintain a long, slim line, wear shoes the same color as your pants. You will also want to keep other accessories, such as jewelry, very simple. One Trend Rule – Sometimes you may wonder, “Does this seem like I’m trying too hard?” If that’s how you feel, rock your leather pants and keep everything else very minimal and classic. Don’t add any other trends to your look and I promise you will feel better. I call it the one trend rule that’s great to pull out when in doubt.
