1. Check-mate

If you’re looking for an on-edge, grungy vibe, then this is your go-to outfit. I feel that checkered shirts and leather go so well together! I wore some white sneakers with this outfit, but you can definitely switch them up with some ankle, chunky boots, too.

Also, I tied the checkered shirt on my waist for a more laid-back kind of vibe.

2. Trench coat girl

If you’re wondering what coat to wear with leather trousers, I think a trench coat will really do the job. I decided to style my leather trousers with a khaki trench coat, and it really gives off a lovely, elegant, and snazzy vibe.

I kept it smooth inside with a plain black top and accessorized the outfit with black high-heel sandals and a black handbag with gold keychain hardware. You can also switch it up a little and opt for a white top.

3. Sheer princess

So, I got a bit playful with this look and decided to wear a see-through, sheer top. I paired it with my Doc. Martens for some extra edge.

There are so many tops to wear with black leather trousers, but I feel that this sheer top is so intricate and goes great with the smooth, shiny texture of the trousers themselves.

I wore a black bra underneath the vest, but if you don’t want to show off too much skin, a thin spaghetti strap top will do the trick, too.

If you’re looking for more leather trousers outfit ideas with a sheer top, I have another look with this funky printed long-sleeved top. It’s got a groovy vibe to it, so I decided to pair it with wide-leg leather pants.

4. Blazer it out

I feel that everyone opts for light brown hues during autumn and winter, but I am taking the color palette a totally different way with this ultra-chic mint blazer.

Here, I’m wearing black leather split trousers, a plain white crop top, my mint blazer, open-toe heels, and a black handbag.

Tip: Switch the white crop top to a black one for a more monochrome look. You can also wear sneakers if you want a more chilled vibe.
