It's true, sometimes we get personal shopper request for items that the entirety of the editorial staff wouldn't necessarily put on in heartbeat. They range from patterned harem pants to faux fur stoles, and more recently, leather pants. We answer your requests, even if we're not personally gonna run out and buy ourselves the ensemble we've selected for you. We're not here to judge, we're here to help. But it seems like the recent post of leather pants brought up some fashion concerns from the peanut gallery. So here's what we have to say: if a lithe young woman wants to wear leather pants to reach her personal pinnacle of sexiness, more power to her. After all, it could be worse.
Rompers are quite popular right now, and if one of our dear readers asked for a leather one, we'd point her towards the stunner that is the Elegant Moments Leather Romper ($70, 1). Elegant indeed!
But maybe a reader is looking for a more traditional form of leather elegance. This kicky little Reed Krakoff Tissue Leather Wrap Dress ($2190, 2) fits the bill.
Looking for a bit more coverage? The Capri Leather Jumpsuit ($279, 3) leaves your modesty in tact while still showing a bit of skin - at the ankles, naturally!
Or maybe we've got a reader who wants to show more leg while still maintaining a buttoned-up look. Obviously, she'd love this Barbara Bui Leather Shirtdress ($1885, 4).
Though, you know, leather can be a bit uncomfortable (hello, chafing!) - how about something that's easy to throw on and feels just as good as a pair of sweats? Wait a minute, these Haute Hippy Leather Sweatpants ($895, 5) are the perfect solution! Though we suppose this Wide Strapped Jumpsuit ($269, 6) would be equally loose and comfy... however will you choose?
