I know that I have been writing about how popular Canadian tuxedos and denim sneakers are these days, but this weekend, things changed. On Sunday morning, I was getting ready for New York Fashion Week, about to throw on my laid-out denim ensemble. And then, I looked out my window, saw it was snowing, and remembered that the fashion show was outside. I most definitely could not wear jeans. If you have ever worn wet denim, you know that it truly is the epitome of discomfort. Thus, it became a day to don my trusty faux-leather pants. 

As everyone shivered in their seats, I was quite content in my selection of pants, as I was comfortable and appeared put-together (despite my 12-second outfit change). Faux leather is one of the easiest ways to look and feel amazing, whether that be on the bottom or on top. And since it’s not real leather, there isn't the same terror of slightly unideal weather conditions destroying your favorite pants or jacket. I'm not claiming this is the newest trend to hit the market, but it is one of the easiest to partake in, especially given the sheer abundance of faux leather hanging around these days. So for the time being, start gravitating toward pants that won't cause inevitable chafing at the drop of rain and try some of these faux-leather pieces.

Perfectly tailored (without actually needing to be tailored).

The oversize look absolutely kills.

When it comes to anything from the '70s, I'm in.
