Step 1: Don’t be afraid. We know you love to take center stage on karaoke night, so why not live the dream by rockin’ a pair of leather pants to match? True, you mostly see them in places like high fashion epicenters like NYC or in Europe, but I think it’s high time we get over our leather pant-related hang-ups and get to fulfilling our rock star fantasies.

Step 2: Find a good fit. Just as you would search for a well-fitted jean, you too will need to search for a well-fitted leather pant. There are so many brands, cuts, and styles out there at various price points, you definitely won’t have a hard time finding a pair that works for your specific body type. In fact, here are a couple of picks to get you started.

Step 3: Mix and mingle. Leather pants are statement makers on their own, so you won’t need much to make them look over-the-top hot. I prefer pairing them with an oversized tee or blouse, a few necklaces and wedge boots. Mix it up though–try yours with a blazer or cool cape layered on top.  Also, keep your shoes simple; whether you’re going for a hard, rocker look with boots or a clean, hyper-chic ensemble with pumps, you’ll want to let your legs do the talking with this outfit. And most importantly, once you’ve pulled yourself all together, head out with confidence: ’cause baby, you know you’re gonna be turning heads left and right when you’re rockin’ leather pants.
