In this new series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What’s Right Now every weekend, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. This week, we’re featuring Katie Niemiec of Little Black Blog.
After stumbling upon the "Find Your Perfect: Leather Pants" story in the October issue, anchored by the gorgeous Miranda Kerr in buttery soft Helmut Lang leggings, I was inspired to take the plunge and purchase my very first pair of faux leather bottoms (well, almost all faux leather—the jersey stripe down the side adds an extra bit of stretch for comfort). I teamed them with a white lace top and poppy pink accessories to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I also liked the combo of hard and soft hues. Now that I have (sort of) leather pants, I can totally join a rock band, right? Right. Get inspired by more InStyle readers we ♥ in our gallery.
