T H R E E M I X: The Leather Pants

The Threemix series; this is where I show you how I’ve styled a piece of clothing three different ways. Today’s style piece is the leather pants. Leather pants are as versatile as jeans. The trick about leather pants is knowing when to wear them. If it’s too hot, you are going to sweat all the liquid from your body. If it’s too cold, then you’ll freeze because they are not warm. However, they make any outfit look super cool, that’s a fact. While there are plenty of super cool leather pants out there, you just have to find the right style for your needs. I was fortunate enough to have found these biker/moto style pants at Goodwill for $4.00; retail for $700.

Happy Fashion,

The Tartan Blazer + Leather Pants

What’s the difference between tartan and plaid? I didn’t know, so I googled and I ended up more confused. However, I like the name tartan more than plaid to be honest AND when the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wore a similar pattern coat (here) as my blazer, the Brits called it tartan. It’s a cool name, so I stuck with it.

Outfit Details

These are my beloved leather pants and it’s the first time I pull them out of the closet this season. I was going to wear them with this simple long t-shirt and these black boots. However, turns out it was colder outside than I expected and I was going to wear a sweater but something about this blazer looked cooler. I wanted the outfit to look more structured so I added this belt with it. I looked like a complete badass in this outfit and I loved it.
