Something I've been on the hunt for for quite a long time is a pair of black (p)leather leggings. I recently picked up a beautiful, comfy and very affordable pair of burgundy pleather leggings at H&M. Because of my positive experience with them I decided to buy the same ones in black as well. Unfortunately after my second wear already the pleather started tearing next to the bum seam (annnnd yes, I was wearing the right size!) so I had to return them to the store. I obviously didn't dare to buy another pair, so now the hunt is BACK ON!
For me the (p)leather leggings are a real basic piece that is an indispensable complementation of my wardrobe, but apparently it's not so easy to find the perfect version of this basic. Everything has to do with the material (real leather or a synthetic variant?), the price (again, real leather or a synthetic variant?), the fit (ultra skinny or with a slight slouch?) and the details (cropped, with zippers, with a quilted part, with pockets...?). When UK brand Baukjen challenged me to style one of their AW14 pieces, I immediately fell for these leather beauties. I'm really looking forward to receiving them and starting to create outfits! First things first: wear them with a grey oversized knit and white chucks.
I unfortunately couldn't find the source of the first photo. If you know the correct source, please let me know!
