LEATHER PANTS


According to a recent survey, they are the most regretted fashion purchase among women. For me, it has been the longest fashion search: leather pants. I mean there is more important things to find in life; love (found that one already), wisdom, happiness, etc. and most of them are quite hard to bump into, but man finding the perfect pair of fitting leather pants definitely is no easy task either.

I think there is not one other item I have tried on more than leather pants. From Zara to Joseph, from 150 euros up to a 1.000. Nothing quite made it to the register. For a second – ok maybe a few – I even wanted to pull the trigger on Balmain, but then quickly came to senses (I could treat my boyfriend on a vacation for that amount of money).

The thought of owning perfect leather pants (I already had leggings, but I wanted pants, with actual pockets and a zipper) kept hunting me until I clicked home this beauty from the Swedish brand Hunkydory. Rarely do I ever buy tight pants online unless I happen to know my size from a particular brand. And so I slipped them on immediately after receiving the package – I swear it is hard closing the zipper with crossed fingers hoping it would fit me – and have not taken them off ever since.

  4. Leather pants always remind me of that hilarious chapter of Friends in which Ross was having problems ;-)
    These pants suit you perfectly and doesn’t have that tacky vibe that most of leather pants have. Great choice, as usual.

  5. Love the pants – they’re perfect on you, and really like them styled like this! I know what you mean, I’ve bought several pairs of ‘leggings’ but still have not found the perfect leather trousers yet either. The hunt continues!

  14. Most regretted purchase, really? That surprises me because leather pants are so awesome. I’m with you on the Balmain, love to pull the trigger on them one day, or anything Balmain for that matter.
    These ones are pretty rockin’ though, loving the double zips.

  18. Ahhhh je broek is écht perfect! Ik heb hem (volgens mij?) in de showroom gezien bij Ganbaroo en was er toen al meteen verliefd op. Mijn zoektocht naar de perfecte leren broek duurt ook maar voort.. hopen dat ik er ooit eens eentje vind die me perfect zit.

  21. Persoonlijk, zie ik toch liever een strakkere leren broek, maar de combinatie met het truitje en de heels is wel geslaagd.

    1. Hoi Sabrina, die leren broek is echt fantastisch en nog steeds super fashionable in NL want je ziet ze hier niet vaak op straat (en dan is Amsterdma nog 100x meer fashionable dan de rest van NL). Ik vind die eerste foto het mooist, het shirt en de sjaal combineren perfect!

  29. i love the mix of stripe and tartan!

  30. Hi Sabrina!!

    You are so right about trying on leather pants… its HORRIBLE!
    Zippers or not, ankle length or long, stretchy or sturdy, it’s very difficult.

    You make a very good decision we think:)
