How I Wear – Leather Leggings and Lace-Up Heels

A quick flashback to my latest Los Angeles trip, where I fully embraced my newfound love for  a combination of leather leggings, bare ankles and foofy shirts.

From time to time it is quite nice to find a combination of clothes that take you a little out of your usual comfort zone or uniform. In my case, the uniform at the moment is: skinny jeans, sweat-shirt and trainers… I feel pretty crazy when I venture in “girlfriend jeans” territory so you can imagine that leather leggings and heels are as far out of my zone as possible. However, after trying on these , I was pretty much a convert, ready to burn all my skinny jeans and just worship at the altar of the “elevated skinny trousers“. Many different scenarios suddenly started flashing in my head: I could wear them on the plane, I could wear them with a loose tee-shirt and a blazer, I could wear them with a cashmere jumper dress – endless possibilities.

This time around, I wore them with this awesome piano print shirt by Emilia Wickstead, a white bucket bag and lace-up heels. Simple is often best.
