What We’re Wearing: Black “Leather” Jogger Pants
"I’m such a spring and summer person, so once the temperature drops in the fall and winter, my wardrobe tends to take a turn toward oversized sweaters and pants. It wasn’t until I was reading one of our stories on how to look cool while staying warm that I realized Kanye West was right—I needed a pair of leather jogger pants in my life. I hit up the nearest Urban Outfitters after work and picked up a version by Silence + Noise made with vegan leather. In addition to the cruelty free-factor, I also loved that they weren’t dry-clean only, since I’m pretty lazy when it comes to those types of garments.
At first, I wasn’t totally sure I could pull them off, but I was really into the effect when paired with a mean pair of heels, not to mention the fact they legitimately felt like pajama pants. Since I’m one of those people who just has to wear their new purchase immediately after buying it, I wore the pants with an H&M top and some random stilettos I’ve had for years—and gained a few compliments around the office the next day!”
