Leather and Sequin: Skin Tight

This fall, update your idea of allure by bringing some leather and sequin into your closet. The look is both sleek yet fresh. It’s an overall sophisticated and enchanting sentiment.

The dynamic combo of skintight pants and sparkling tops is ideal for a sexy night out, although certain pieces can easily transition into daytime gear. Designers such as Gryphon and Helmut Lang show us how to take glam rock to your lunch meeting with their combination fabric pieces in tanks and fitted bottoms.

Any predetermined notions of sequin being exclusively for figure skaters should be abandoned, and we can all use a little bit of the edge that a bit of tailored leather automatically gives us.

Our favourite players in this new game of glam include Alice + Olivia, Helmut Lang, Rick Owens, and Jenni Kayne for leather, and Gryphon, St. John Collection, Zac Posen and See by Chloé for sequin.

If you’re too demure to try these two winning looks in combo, try the leather pants with a flowing silk top, or the sequin with some modest boyfriend jeans. But they are like an Oreo cookie, great when separated into parts, but outstanding when put together
