How to Style Patent Leather

December 23, 2018

Hello loves!  Can you believe we are at the end of 2018? Are you tired of hearing other people say the exact same thing? LOL , same.  Let's jump into this post, shall we?  I have wanted patent leather pants since forever but I never thought I could pull them off.  They seemed tight and tight for me equals uncomfortable.  But after seeing a few bloggers rock them, specifically scouthecity I thought to myself you don't have that body type but ahh what the hell get them anyway! 😎 I found the pair I am rocking on H&M's website for $30 and I had a 20% discount code so SCORE!  Check out how I styled them in a video I shared here. For reference I ordered them in a size 8 because I really worried about them being too tight, turns out sizing up was a good idea.  These hit right above the belly button and have give in the hip and thigh area.

1) Classic Blazer

If you have been reading my blog for some time now you know that at least one style will include a blazer!  Blazers make any outfit look instantly put together.  Patent leather pants are a great alternative to jeans.  I can't say that I would wear this look to work but I would definitely rock this look out for dinner a girl's night or maybe a dress down Friday, if you think you can pull it off!

2. Oversized Sweater

Leggings + an oversized sweater is a no brainer.  Pair this look with pumps or booties and you are instantly chic AND you can hide that food belly you will surely have after living the holiday life for the past month. No judgement.  💋

3. Denim Shirt Over a Tee

This is a great way to dress down a pair of patent leather leggings but still look like you tried.  Great for all of that holiday travel and holiday lounging.  I prefer this look with sneakers and a back pack to fit all my holiday snacking.

Take a risk, buy the pants. If I can pull it off so can you!

Thanks for reading babes!

 Until Next Time.
