We know, we know: You’re probably thinking leather pants belong firmly in the fall — or, you know, any other season that's not trying to engulf you in heat. But hear us out. When your office’s AC is on blast, that cutesy little sundress that worked for last weekend’s BBQ isn’t exactly going to ward off the chills. Trust.
Besides, when worn correctly (read: with strappy, open-toe sandals and a very light tank), we’re pretty sure leather pants serve as one-third of the most perfect work-to-play outfit there is. So, to prove you can do leather in the summer, we rounded up 11 so-chic pairs, including a white-hot boyfriend style that's ready to take the heat. Even better? Rejoice in the fact that these picks — both faux and real deal — will take you through those tricky transitional months and well into fall. Sounds like a win-win to us!
