Women in leather pants ooze sensuality

Leather goes grunge!

It’s the ultimate rock star look! Women in leather pants ooze sensuality.

If you’ve got a hot body, flaunt your legs in leather. The look is skinny, lean and oh-so-mean. Leather pants are sexy and intimidating. They’re rebellious. There was a time when only bad girls wore leather pants, remember Madonna, Sinead O’Connor and Courtney Love? Says designer Rina Dhaka, “Leather pants are reminiscent of the early 90s, of David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and rock and roll. They are set to be a big hit this winter. High-waist leather trousers look marvellous with well-tailored jackets.”

Women, it seems will be making leather strides, giving them that rock, grunge edge. Says designer Neeta Lulla, “Women in black leather pants are the ultimate sex symbols. They’re alluring, magical and look like sex-goddesses. That’s why leather pants are making a comeback this fall.”

We’ll be seeing a lot of goth and grunge this winter, so leather pants make a definite style statement. You could try a luxe look, ultra-skinny pants with high heels and heavy metal accessories. Says designer Abhishek Dutta, “Drainpipes in thin suede leather or embossed leather are going to be very in. Wear it with a grunge looking t-shirt during the day. Or just wear it with a bandhgala or open jacket for the evening to look sexy and mean. This look works even more with ankle length boots.” For a more contemporary, yet feminine look, wear a floaty dress over your leather trousers.

We’ve seen Kate Moss looking superhot in tight leather pants. Who wears flared leather pants? Designer Neeta Lulla adds, “Be casual yet trendy. It’s the laidback grunge and rebellious look. Leather pants worn with a simple t-shirt and boots would give a relaxed and unfussy appearance.” With the right attitude, anyone can carry off leather pants with élan. “They look really cool! If one has a good body, they can work it to their advantage in leather pants,” says VJ Pia Trivedi.

Remember to strike a balance between hard and soft. Says model Preeti Desai, “Leather pants look really nice on people with amazing legs. I think skinny leather pants are great to show off long, well-toned legs. I wear mine with a simple vest for an eye catching look. It looks fantastically edgy.”

Skinny leather pants give a rock-chic edge to your look. Says designer Charu Parashar, “Skinny leather pants are going to be big this winter. Churidaar gathers in the lower portion of the trousers look really hot.” To add oomph to an otherwise simple ense-mble, throw on a bright printed tee nonchalantly over your leather trousers. Adds Parashar, “To look out of the box, wear leather pants with a printed t-shirt. Do not forget to wear pumps and some cool accessories, they are a must.” So girls, get a leg up and grab yourself a pair before they go flying off the shelf
