Trend Alert: “Leather Jogger Pants”


I’m always on the look out for new trends, especially ones that the full-figured fashionistas can re-create. So when I got this email from Rainbow about the new trend of ‘leather jogger pants’ I was on it. You see just the other day I posted a blog on Tamar Braxton’s Leather Jumpsuit and the bottoms of her pants, although capris, could also be considered jogging pants. The unique thing about this trend is that the style mixes both leather with sporty chic. One could say that Kanye West is the originator of this trend. He took the idea to the Fendi house but was shot down for his idea. If only Fendi had know that celebs like Rihanna, Beyonce and Cassie would have been seen rocking this trend with both pumps or sneakers all over city streets. How would you style yours? Check out some options below in both straight-size and plus-size versions….
