Coated Jeans- My Latest Fashion Obsession

Coated Jeans and a Sweater

Happy Friday, beautiful. I’ve always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with leather jeans. I love the look of them and how they give any outfit the cool factor…. however, finding a pair of leather jeans that fit right, are comfortable, aren’t ridiculously hot, don’t make a questionable sound every move you make in them, don’t cross over from sexy to sluty, and don’t cost a fortune is nearly impossible. This so reminds me of that Friends (my absolutely favorite show) episode where Ross gets stuck in leather pants while on a date- hilarious! That’s why I was thrilled when I discovered these coated jeans last year. They look just like leather but are actually just denim jeans that have been coated with pigment which gives them the appearance of being leather. The versatility of coated leather jeans is infinite. Wear them with a tee and your favorite sneakers for a casual day out with your kids, add a blazer and pumps for a cool work look, or slip on a sparkly tank and strappy heels for a girls night out. Here, I pair my coated jeans with a cashmere tie-sleve sweater and kitten heel pumps for a cozy look with a little sexy edge- or a little naughty and nice.

What are your thoughts on coated denim? Are you a fan or do you prefer leather jeans? Also, I’d love hear how you style yours- please share.
