THE PATENT LEATHER PANTS
Vinyl pants are undoubtedly the drama queen pants. The pants you want to wear if you want to stand out in the crowd. But the same patent leather pants are also the pants you can wear every day and look simply fashionable. Fashionable and chic and nothing more. No drama, no strange thoughts, and no mixed feelings.
Believe it or not, the patent leather pants can easily blend in with your style once you learn all the styling tricks.
HOW TO STYLE THE PATENT LEATHER PANTS
Sorry, I’m not listing all my tips and tricks about how to style the patent leather pants in this blog post. We need to go step by step with these pants. You know what I mean. Patent leather pants are not that kind of pants you want to sprint in. Not for real and not in the fashion sense.
First comes first, the things you need to know before you get your first patent leather pants.
BEFORE BUYING YOUR FIRST VINYL PANTS
You can find patent leather pants in literally any fashionable colour of the season. Red, well especially red, black, blue, olive … Surely, I don’t need to list all the it colors of the season again. You know them already as I already wrote about them. Don’t say you missed my Colour Report. Well, if you did, to check it out later.
Anyway, as said you can get vinyl pants in almost every color. But I don’t think you should pick just any colour. After all, we are talking about bold, edgy pants. Besides this glass, reflecting effect is difficult to style in the first place. Not mentioning the feeling when wearing colorful patent leather pants is not the same as the feeling when you wear colorful jeans.
My advice, go for black, neutrals or red. You can’t miss with red this season. But if you do go for red then wear them monochrome.
SHAPE OF THE PANTS
Skinny short girls, we have a problem. It’s easy for those of you who are skinny and tall. You can wear either slim-leg patent leather pants, full length or flared patent leather pants. But if you are skinny in short, then your safest bet is merely the high waisted patent leather pants. I might be mistaken, but I haven’t tested the cropped and flared patent leather pants. Surely, they might work on some fashionistas, but you know what I mean. Patent leather pants are risky by themselves.
Fur curvy girls, darlings, I won’t lie to you. I have no idea. I can only guess the full length (not flared) patent leather pants will be your best choice. Patent leather definitely adds some stones to the skinny girls. But can surprisingly hide some extra kilos on the curvy girls. You know due to the glossy effect.
I feel I must share a little tip on shoes here in my first post about this high-shine fashion trend. Yes, there will be more posts about how to wear vinyl pants coming up on my blog as soon as I wear my new vinyls for all situations that come up into my mind.
Anyway, back to the shoes. Shoes are a very important part of the vinyl outfit for sure. Surely, things are quite easy if you are wearing black vinyl pants. In this case, you can simply put on any black shoes. But if your patent leather pants come in shiny colours, then you might have a problem. Don’t worry; I know what to do in this case. The answer is embellished mules, matching slouchy boots (by the way be sure to check how to pull off the slouchy trend here), glossy block heels or velvet ankle booties and simple pumps (although the simple pumps should be your last choice).
The key here is not to break the glossy flow. Or if you do so, do it with some skin.
WHEN TO WEAR PATENT LEATHER PANTS
Obviously for the night out with your girls, and obviously to the city too. Like I did yesterday. And yes this look is the one you can wear from office to street as well. You know when you don’t have any important office meetings. By the way, what were your first thoughts when you saw me wearing the patent leather pants in my Insta Story?
Ps. make sure to follow me on my Instagram to be the first one to see how to wear vinyl pants to the office. Yes, you can wear them to the office too.

Even though I do know how to wear vinyl pants with the sweater on a casual day in the city.
SWEATER WEATHER AND PATENT LEATHER
