Splurge: Helmut Lang Stretch Leather Leggings

Helmut Lang Embossed Stretch Leather Leggings
It's no secret that I worship the Helmut Lang label. I consider just about anything from that line to be a sound sartorial investment, and have the closet to prove it. But, I recognize that not everyone finds Helmut Lang's architectural genius to be everyday wear. So, how about I set this one up as a fun, fabulous splurge...

These Helmut Lang Embossed Stretch Leather Leggings are so gorgeous. They are crafted from grey embossed lambskin in a skinny fit. It's hard to tell without going over to the Neiman Marcus site and doing a super zoom on the photo, but the embossing creates an allover reptile look, which is super luxe and original.

I love these leather leggings paired here with this Lush Voile Overlap Shirt -- really, the look is so Helmut Lang. But, you could also tame the look into something more conventionally polished by adding a simple tee shirt and structured black blazer. For a look that would be right at home in a ski chalet, try pairing these leggings with an oversized chunky knit sweater and boots.

Super practical they're not, but these lambskin leather leggings are definitely a lot of fun. That makes them ultra splurge-worthy.
