How to create styles with straight-leg brown leather pants?

Tan and Green

In this outfit, we chose the contrast of two strong colors – tan straight-leg leather trousers and a dark green jacket. We created the base with a classic white shirt.

Notice how the puffed sleeves of the jacket create visual harmony with the straight-cut pants, and the white pearls match the basic color of the shirt.

A patterned handbag would compliment the solid colors in your ensemble. Finish this outfit with a pair of timeless and elegant neutral-colored pumps.

To fashion this look, we selected a structured ensemble of straight-cut pants and a fitted jacket that embrace the waist. We also added depth by using complementary colors of dark brown and gray-green, ultimately finishing off with an ivory blouse featuring intricate tailoring around the waistline as well as wide sleeves.

Notice that the buckle of the jacket and the zippers of the pants are silver in color and this creates harmony.

The shoes could be ankle boots, let’s say dark green.

The white hue of the blouse complements the camel color of the leggings, and together they create an elegant look. The shoes are white espadrille wedge sandals for a summer look.

To finish off the look, choose a straw hat and a tote.

For the finishing touch, this outfit can be complemented with a pair of white chunky sneakers or clogs.
