The Leather-Pants Outfits That Are All Over Paris

Paris Fashion Week is in full swing, which means we are looking to all of the stylish fashion insiders spotted on the streets to find inspiration. With fall also in full effect, we've seen leather-pants outfits on repeat throughout the week, and we’re gleaning some styling tips for how to pull them off this season.

One thing we’re seeing across the board is that fashion girls are skipping the legging-style leather pants that have been popular in seasons past. Instead, they’re wearing trouser-inspired styles that have wider-leg fits and tailored finishes. With a focus on tailoring as an overarching trend this season, it comes as no surprise that leather pants would follow suit. So what is the coolest way to pull them off? Ahead, see how insiders are wearing their leather pants on the streets of Paris, and shop the best styles to pull off the looks.

Look for trouser-style leather pants that have a high-waisted fit, straight legs, and tapered ankles. If you don't want to wear real leather, a lot of brands, such as Nanushka, offer vegan options.

Mix things up by going for a shade other than black. Look for colors like chocolate brown or khaki.

More evidence that alternative shades like brown are trending on the streets of Paris.

Try snakeskin-printed leather pants for a luxe look. To pull them off, keep the rest of your outfit simple with a black top, jacket, and ankle boots.

With the all-leather look trending this fall, tap into it by pairing a leather top with your pants.

Another way you can try out leather trousers this season? Tuck them into knee-high boots.

I'm loving this styling trick. Add a high-waisted layer underneath, which you could test out with a waist corset or belt.

Go for a classic outfit pairing by wearing a white button-down top with leather trousers and heels.

For a sporty look, add a colorful turtleneck in a bright shade like electric yellow or orange.
