Acne‘s shoes are probably what the brand is best known for, but their cozy knit sweaters are a close second favorite of mine.

Pair these sweaters with a black leather leggings and matching ankle boots and you have an instantly chic outfit!

Style Watch: Leather Pannel Pants


Products (L-R): 1. Dragon Moto Jeans – NastyGal, 2. Blank NYC Vegan Panelled Jeans – Pink Mascara, 3. Free People Leather Trim Jeans – Zappos

Faux and real leather is one of the “in” fabrics this season. Of course a leather jacket or leather legging are a easy go to, but if you want some different leather flare try leather paneled jeans!

They are a mash up of leather pants, tuxedo pants and skinny jeans. Its a great way to stay fashionable all while  staying on a budget. There are so many options available at different price ranges… there styles with tuxedo strioe down the leg, leather panels on the knees, the options are endless.
