The Luscious Leathers

If we begin to conclude the top fashion trends of 2013, one trend which was popular amongst almost every celebrity, blogger and general public was that of leather bottoms. Till last year, I personally classified wet look trousers or skirts as a rock/goth/punk trend. However, after looking at the hot leather looks this year I have completely changed my views. I believe now a woman can look cool and trendy by putting no effort into getting dressed up by just owning a pair of wet look trousers because almost every top from your wardrobe will go with it (It almost resembles the innate taste of British girls dressing style as well!!!!)....Just because leather bottoms are the 'new jeans', this trend is a complete 'YAY' for me!

From leather leggings to leather shorts and from leather knee-high boots to the leather legging-boots, there is a whole lot of options for woman to look luscious in leathers! Designers like Versace, Holly Fulton, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent to our very own high street retailer TopShop have contributed immensely to make leather pants one of the most happening trends of 2013.  Here are a few of my favourite leather bottom looks :)

Angelina Jolie in a classic black and white look. She wore the look by Salvatore Ferragamo at the NYFCC a couple of years ago.

Next is this all black attire by Sandra Bullock. She wore an ASOS black matte-finish leather skirt with pockets and paired it with a plain black top and Tabitha Simmons heels.

Elle MacPherson was spotted wearing the red cropped leather pants by Isabel Marant. She balanced the whole look with a plain black cardigan and Marant's poppy bow pumps. The picture on the right is from Isabel Marant's SS13 La Modella Mafia Collection. I love the colour and stud detailing on the cropped leather pants worn by the model.

I love the casual/feminine look of Rosie Huntington as she wore grey Victoria Beckham leather pants teamed up with a simple nude jumper. To complete the look she wore brown Balenciaga heels. On the right we have Charlize Theron all dolled up in black leather pants with a pink Stella McCartney blazer and black&white Zanotti pumps.

The black ruffle leather mini skirt by Jay Ahr is a stunner. The best thing about this skirt is that it looks very soft and flowing like a fabric.

This bright orange leather skirt is simply WOW. Designer, Richard Nicoll, has added side pleats which give a very nice shape when paired with a fitted top.

On the left we have a wrap-style claret hue leather skirt by Belstaff. This has also been one of the most loved pick by fashion critics. On the other hand, we have sleek leather shorts by Chloe with a ribbed-jersey waistband. Both these leather loves will work out best when paired with warm fitted knits on the top.

Saint Laurent has smashed it with these crimson skinny stretch-leather pants.Would be ideal to wear these with sexy pumps to stand out in crowd. Also, we have J Brand's off-white and grey racer striped Masako leather pants. Would look great when paired with a loose fit jumper and some nude/grey heels similar to Sigerson Morrison's 'Brielle'.
