A product of the rock n' roll and metal era, leather pants took over as sweaty headbanging singers' choice of clothing. A clothing item unanimously associated with the 'bad girl vibe', they are definitely not considered to be a worthy wardrobe investment. This is exactly where its appeal lies... leather pants are not for everyone. They need a certain 'devil may care' attitude to be carried with spunk, hug your body like nothing else and need a certain degree of commitment towards "watching the leather"!
All this seems like dust in the wind for a few of our favourite starlets though! Picking leather while travelling and on casual dinners seems to be catching on steam this season. First, we had Deepika Padukone, lighting the spark to this flame:
Following suit was Sonakshi Sinha, who has shown her love for leather in the past as well (skirts and trousers, alike):
While Deepika and Sonakshi kept is surprisingly minimal with a sleek style of pants, newcomer Amyra Dastur took it a step further with her Moschino crushed leather and studded pants:
We love the combined witty slogan tee as well!
So there we have it, while leather pants may seem to catch on with desi celebs, they are keeping the overall ensemble easy with tees and tanks (no ripped vests to see here!). You can also pair them with denim jackets, button-down shirts, easy blazers and slouchy tops.
Here are some chic pants you can choose from to join in with the trend:
