Pocketless Sass

I generally love pockets and zippers in garments, especially jackets and depending on the style (pockets) in dresses as well. But, when I wanted a faux leather version of my multi-pocket leather trousers not leggings, I decided to try a version sans front pockets, since my original pair was not with me at that time.

At first I was hesitant, as I acquired these a long time ago. I almost forgotten about this pleather pairing until I needed to get dressed for a night out with friends. I wanted a fun and comfortable look, an alternative to my usual dresses and skirts! And, yes, it would have certainly been easier to wear an oversize knit, however I opted for a different look.

Style Blogger Wearing leather trousers


I've seen loads of versions of leather leggings and with all of the chatter about it I most certainly agree with the part that a legging is not pants, just as a bikini is not an office top! But, I decided to show a way that a leather trouser may work, especially for my unconventional style. Of course you need to have trousers, which in my opinion are thicker anyway and gives you more room. Above all, when you're off shopping for your version make certain that you feel comfortable when wearing them! And, think about where you're going!



For this look I added my satin trimmed crop vest and wore a tank underneath. I embellished the look with my favourite Italian beaded trim at the moment (which I will be using for a crafty project later), wearing it as a belt. You can definitely wear simple solids and make a bold statement. This was suiting for my occasion: friends, live music, and good food!

  1. Whoa!! That is one smoking hot look! I hear you about the leggings trouser thing, and some trousers are so skinny they almost are leggings but if you've got the legs flaunt it I say - I love the skinny fit of yours! If I wear leather leggings rather than trousers I have to make sure I wear enough length on top to keep things decent!

  2. I love those leather trousers my dear and they look amazing on you! They look so chic with the cropped military-inspired vest and classic heels. I also love the addition of the beaded trim, a perfect touch and really catches the eye. :)

    Take care my dear,

  4. Nice look and very well put together for an effortless appearance. I too agree that leggings are not pants. I want a pair of leather/pleather skinnies.....can only find expensive pairs that offer the style I'm after.

    Happy New Year hunni!

  7. I generally dont use pockets unless it is In a jacket. But for these pants i agree the silhouette is smoother without the pocket bulge.

  13. Gorgeous!! Super look. Are those leggings comfy? I was thinking on getting a pair as I have a dress that isn't as long any more as I like, but I can't part with it as I still love it, so I thought a pair of leggings would be nice, but some leggings look sloppy or like work out attire, but these are quite chic, might get some :)) Beautiful you. I hope you are having a great week so fat xx

  23. I'm guilty of wearing leggings as pants on occasion even though I'm morally against it.  And these are amazing!  Can't believe you found them on ebay and they worked out so well!

  25. Oh? haha! NO worries, to each their own.
    Yes, I found these on eBay a long time ago, they had leather styles as well, but I already have a pair and 1 or two is enough at the moment. :) I lucked out fortunately. Thanks for commenting.

  41. You look fab! Love that the vest ends way above your waist so it accentuates it instead of hiding it!

    I think thick materials like leather and pleather are absolutely fine, even in a leggings-like cut! They are too think to be called leggings. :)

    I love that you added the vest because it really puts this look together. And your leather pants are some of the best fitting I've seen. I love that these are leather pants and not leggings. I need some!

  64. I LOVE a pleather legging, I've been looking for a pair for a while now. This outfit looks fantastic on you. Black and brown is really one of my favorite color combinations and you have the body to rock these pants without something oversized to cover up the legging is not a trouser situation.
