Givenchy colour for a gloomy day

Do you ever go through periods where you favour the same kind of outfits or items?  I've been crushing on my various black leather pants this winter, so when we head out, I pull on... yes... an unpredictable choice... another pair of leather pants out.  Well actually I have three pairs but they are on a permanent rotation at the moment.  At least the cost per wear ratio is looking far more favourable! 

The past few weeks have been filled with grey skies and I think the gloom is finally getting to me (think black and white, or all black overload).  But today I decided I needed just a hint of a colour infusion for my otherwise monotone attire.  This Givenchy clutch is a little bit special to me. My gorgeous girlfriend Femmy managed to snag it in the sales in Amsterdam for me (she's an absolute doll isn't she)!  Even though the weather is poor, this clutch makes me think of spring.  It inspires me to think (and hold out for) warmer days that will be just around the corner.  Well eventually.

What I'm wearing:
Balmain leather leggings with zip detail (available HERE)
Equipment Signature blouse (available HERE)
Saba blazer (7-8 years old and still going strong)
Givenchy Iris clutch
Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps (available HERE)


Just in case there are any other die hard leather pant addicts out there, I thought I would feature some of my favourite leathers that are around at the moment.  Each of the selected pants I've chosen due to having a particularly flattering fit and the quality of the leather.  The range includes something for every budget (most importantly).  The sale temptations are all reasonably priced and reduced heavily but not all sizes are available. Definitely worth a look in though if you happen to be after a pair. I'm really in to the hue of the Sandro pants and the cropped design of the Vanessa Bruno Athe. 



From left to right:
The sale temptations ($-$$) - these won't require you to live on bread and water for months to afford (the first two maybe for a month...)

Balenciaga leather pants (available on the US site HERE or the global site HERE)
Sandro Possible leather camel biker pants (available from the US HERE)
Iro Isonelia textured leather leggings (available on the global site HERE)
Vanessa Bruno Athe cropped leather skinny pants (available on global site HERE)

The middle of the road ($$$) - at least in terms of $ for leather pants 
Helmut Lang stretch-leather leggings (available HERE and HERE)
Joseph stretch-leather leggings (available HERE)

The luxe bank breakers ($$$$-$$$$$$) - these were just too gorgeous to ignore! 
The Row Tercus leather leggings (available HERE and HERE)
Emilio Pucci stretch leather skinny pants (available HERE)
Alexander McQueen paneled leather pants (available HERE)

  1. Wow that clutch is gorgeous against your outfit, it really pops!

    I'm not a fan of leather pants/leggings on me - although I love them on others and especially in this outfit of yours :) I like the zip detailing too.

  13. Mandi, you're making me rethink black leather pants. I used to think they're too risque with a heavy metal vibe but you managed to make them look classy.

    1. Leather pants a great with just a really basic tee or a knit I find. They are great since you can pair them down or dress them up as long as you don't go to 'blingy' with them xx
