How to wear leather pants to work

This OOTD illustrates how to wear leather pants to work. Chose a neutral color for your leather pants so it stays in basics territory just having a statement material. Then just pair them with classic work appropriate pieces like this classic Burberry plaid blazer and chic pink cashmere sweater. Also make sure that your boots or shoes stay office appropriate and out of the street style or Rock’n Roll territory. Instead of a blazer, the classic twinset or variations of a twinset work. You can find such examples of how to wear leather pants at the office in a classic way , leather capris and a navy and pink work outfit at the links.

Meeting clients means your outerwear is also work clothes

To stay warm on the commute to work I added my red pea coat. Red and chocolate together are much more unexpected than the classic red and black color combination, but add a modern and interesting twist. Nevertheless, the color combination is chic and posh. Especially, when your job involves meeting clients outside of your office pay attention to your outerwear. In this case, your outerwear is not just for insulation and style, but must also be a work appropriate business look.

You can read about styling a leather skirt for work and see an example of a leather shell styled professionally at the links.
