One of the most glamorous fashion trends for Fall is faux-leather pants.
There are so many ways to style faux-leather pants, from pairing them with a casual sweater and flats (for an elevated everyday look) to dressing them up with a glitzy blouse and designer heels (for a fun party).
Fall Style Guide: How To Rock Faux-Leather Pants Like a Star
Like your favorite pair of skinny jeans, faux-leather pants are a style essential for bombshells. What makes them fun to wear is that they add a little “edge” to any outfit – making you instantly feel like a rockstar.
While genuine leather pants can get pricey (and require higher-maintenance), faux-leather pants are a great alternative for your Fall wardrobe. Plus, since faux-leather pants are often stretchy (like this pair from La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni), they hug a woman’s curves in a figure-flattering way and retain their shape. Not to mention – faux-leather pants just look cool (and can make you feel like Beyoncé!).
To help you unleash your inner celeb, today’s style guide shares 4 tips on how to rock faux-leather pants like a star.
Be Dazzling in a Beaded Blouse
To up the star power of your outfit, pair faux-leather pants with a luxe beaded blouse (like this one from Temperley London). Opt for a relaxed cut that grazes your silhouette without being too fitted.
To add an “it girl” factor to your outfit, casually tuck-in just the front of the blouse. This will help to define your waistline (creating a more hourglass shape), without looking fussy. Plus, by leaving the back of the blouse untucked, it gives off a more relaxed vibe (and feels more comfortable to wear).
Push The Pedal To The Metal with Your Clutch
To complement the faux-leather pants, a metallic clutch (like this crocodile clutch from Nancy Gonzalez) looks sophisticated and chic. Plus, a clutch is a great accessory for cocktail parties and events, as it’s just the right size to carry your night-out essentials (like a cell phone, wallet, and lipstick).
Make a Statement with Earrings
Since this outfit is already powerful-looking, minimize your jewelry by wearing a pair of statement earrings. A bold statement earring (like these chandelier earrings from Oscar de la Renta) draws attention to your face, without competing with the rest of your outfit.
Kick Up Your Heels
If you’re heading to a party or going dancing, kick up your heels in a pair of glamorous strappy sandals. Two equally great alternatives (when Fall weather starts acting up) are pointed-toe pumps and suede knee-high boots.
Whether you’re a faux-leather pant newbie or you’re ready to turn up the star power of your go-to Fall staple, faux-leather pants are a fun way to get glam during Fall. Get ready to turn heads and get compliments!
