If You Can Find Someone With More Leather Pants Than Kim Kardashian, I'll Buy You a Pair
Kim Kardashian recently stepped out for lunch at La Plata in California, rocking the 2000s pop-star trend to full effect in a pair of lace-up leather flares. She actually debuted these months ago while shopping at Balenciaga in New York City, and that led us to wonder (as we quickly backtracked on Kim's latest looks), how many pairs of leather pants does this woman actually own? Short answer: a lot.
As soon as Fall hit, Kim was slipping into different versions of these slacks left and right, including, but not limited to, snake-effect Gucci leather pants, snake-effect leather pants with a lace-up cutout detail racing up and down the front of the leg (yes, these are different than the Gucci ones), and a brown, lived-in, vintage-looking pair that appeared to be butter-soft. Kim even showed us a mixed-media denim take on the style on the red carpet, dressed by Riccardo Tisci of Burberry.
It's just like Kim to announce the trends, then move on to something else while everyone tries to keep up, so before she stows away her leather, we're taking a look back at her greatest outfits that revolve around leather pants and shopping out similar versions for your closet. Don't worry, you won't be behind the times if you buy these now, Kim is just really, really ahead of the game. PS: we highly encourage you to search for faux and vegan options when it comes to leather.
