The other day I was invited out to dinner with a big cosmetics brand. Normally an evening out requires some thought on my end about what I’m going to wear and what’s appropriate but that day I peeked into my closet and saw my black leather Mackage pants and ran with it. 

I paired it with a cozy sweatshirt to break up the texture and then topped it off with an oversized blazer from Zara - which happens to be oversized so creates juxtaposition and balance with the skinny cut of the pant.

That’s what I love about leather is that it’s edgy, makes an instant statement, and can be dressed up. After all, don’t we all just want to look effortless no matter what the occasion?
