Most Complimented Pants :: Leather pants & Ruffle top

by wendy

Happy Monday everyone!  And drumroll… the most complimented pants of 2018 – yes we’re only 29 days in – are these incredible leather pants!  Funny story… Colin and I were on a double date the other night and as the sweet hostess walked all of us to our table, she turned to me and said, I love your pants.  I then turned, pointed to Marissa, and said to the hostess, they’re by her!  And that was the, kid you not, fifth time in one night I got compliments on these pants.  They’re such a statement but extremely wearable piece!  The high-waisted design coupled with the cropped length completely elongates my frame.  Standing at 5″4′ with heels, I feel 6 feet tall in these pants!

Pairing statement with statement, I wanted to add an interesting shape on top to complement the asymmetrical waist detail.  This fluttery ruffle sweater was the perfect mate.  In addition to styling it this way, I also wore these leather pants with a simple v-neck tee and cropped trench.  The trench hit the asymmetric waistline perfectly creating a smooth seamless look.  And honestly, the re-styling options are endless.  These pants are perfect with a sleek turtleneck, a crisp button-up, and so much more.

Hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
