Leather pants have always been considered the epitome of the rock-n-roll look though they have lost some of their mojo over the last three decades. However, leather legwear has seen something of a resurgence over the past few fashion seasons and industry watchers expect the leather pants trend to resurface in the coming Fall/Winter season albeit in the form of leather leggings. Yes, you read that right ladies, the awesome new trend is here and by the looks of it, fitted leather leggings might even become the must have fashion item in 2013.
Unlike the classic black leather pants, leather leggings are offered in a range of sexy colors like beige, tan, shades of blue and even a few metallic numbers. Pattern wise, leather leggings borrow the hottest trends from the handbag segment with snakeskin and crocodile textures providing ladies with the option of giving their pins a swanky traffic stopping makeover.
What gives the new leather leggings trend a proverbial leg up on the leather pants trend of yore is the fact that they offer wearers a lot more comfort thanks to their stretchable fit. Some designers fashion their leather leggings from vegan leather and cruelty-free leather so buyers never have to choose between their fashion sense and their support for animal rights. For the fashionista who wants to don leather leggings but just cannot stand the thought of wearing an animal product, labels like Kardashian Kollection also offer leggings made from faux leather.
