Let’s be honest, you’re pushing your luck in a pair of leather skinnies post 40.
But a trend is trend.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley never misses a trend. Every time the 30-year-old model is spotted out and about she’s dressed head to toe in every up to the minute “must-have” item.
She wears leather trousers in a big way. She’s already snapped up the orange £3,050 Givenchy versions and she’s also bagged Saint Laurent’s £565 high-waisted style.
Actress Lupita Nyong’o also loves a bit of leather. Not for the feint-hearted, Lupita pulled off a double leather ensemble that not many people could get away with.
Fellow leather lovers include Jessica Biel, and the gorgeous Julianne Moore, 57, who proves that you can wear them post 50.
So as long as you’re not ‘squelching’ or ‘squeezing’ into a pair of leather skinnies, and as long as you play them down, you can be proud.
I’ll wear mine all the time… right up until the last minute.
