Slink Into Leather

21 08 2008

Every wardrobe has it staples. There’s the little black dress, the perfect pair of jeans, the basic t-shirt, etc. Then there are those versatile pieces you can build different looks from. Take a pair of capri pants, for example. Depending on what you pair with it, they can be casual or a little bit dressy. These pieces are just as important as those staples, perhaps even more so, because they give you options. I love having options, which is why I was so excited when I stumbled across the perfect pair of leather pants.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking…leather pants? Are you crazy? I know…they go in an out of style, sure. But the key is that they ALWAYS come back in. And do you know why? Because nothing makes your derriere look quite as good as the perfect pair of leather pants. Of course, there is the added bonus of being figure flattering and looking great with your best stiletto heels and your clompiest boots. And let’s not forget the reason to wear them in the first place, attention. Nothing grabs the eye like well fitting leather pants. You’ll always be noticed. Where can you find this fabulous new wardrobe must-have? They’re at Slink: The Art of Beauty. Taking this one pair of pants and adding different items from my inventory, I was able to create four distinct looks pretty effortlessly. I could have put together a ton more, I’m sure, and I am sure you can take these and make them your own as well. The options are limitless, really. Let’s check out what I came up with, shall we?

Everyday Casual
Leather pants are probably not the first thing you think of when someone says the word casual, but they really work quite well. Pair them with your favorite shirt, or a band t-shirt and some causal boots and you’re ready for perusing through the newest releases at the record store…


… or grabbing a cup of coffee and a bagel at the coffee house. Of course, since we have the luxury of changing our hair like we change our clothes in SL, I took advantage of that and put on the Aleah hair from ETD to give the outfit a bit of attitude.

Rocker Chic

The last time I went to the club to listen to my friend Maht DJ, I threw on these leather pants and one of the Work Shirts from WRONG. A pair of boots, some jewelry, and yet another ETD hair later, I exemplified Rocker Chic. I can’t tell you how many compliments I got on those pants. The leather was even inspected, and it passed with flying colors.

Date Night
Pairing the leather pants with a red silk top, like this one from Decoy, lends a richness of color and texture that will guarantee your date will only have eyes for you. Add a soft yet tousled hair style and some strappy shoes to make this the perfect outfit for date night. It’s gorgeous, rich in color and texture, yet not overdone.


And really, leather pants always act like a magnet. The leather is so buttery soft, your date won’t be able to not touch them.

Femme Fatale
This is going to be one of my favorite outfits, I think, and is yet another example of taking your lingerie out of the bedroom. I paired the Slink leather pants with a corset from Casa del Shai for an incredibly sexy look. Adding the Secret hair from Abyss gave the outfit a hint of power and danger.
I chose the patent leather Virtue shoes by Maitreya, and I think they compliment these pants perfectly. Plus, come on…wearing a pair of shoes named Virtue with this outfit. It was too good to pass up. In the end, I have an outfit that is powerful and seductive.

There you have it. One pair of fabulous pants, a quick raiding of my inventory, and ta-da: Four fabulously different looks. Strut on over to Slink and snag these wonderful pants in any of the numerous color choices they offer. I guarantee you they’ll be one of your most versatile pieces.
