My cold weather solution II: Theory ima suede pants, Vera Wang boots and fur vest

Vera Wang Eldora boots (buy here, and my review here)
Theory ima stretch suede leggings  (RED here , DARK BROWN here)

Happy Friday everyone! When the cold weather swept the northeast, nothing was more important than an outfit that kept me warm. 

After being spoiled by the Theory ima leather pants (as a previous post here) for continuous three days, I decided to invest another pair, the dark brown stretch suede. You can definitely feel the difference (the penetration of the cold and wind) between leather pants and thick jeans. Price wise, these suede leggings are on sale at $171 in Theory outlet stores now, which is actually similar as full price jeans.

I was asked about the size of the leather leggings by Theory. Though SAs / websites suggest size down to get a better fit, I sized up for both pairs. I tried size 00, 0, 2 and 4. To my surprise, I can wear all of these sizes! Size 00 is tight on me like leggings, but still comfy. Size 4 is slightly wide for my thigh and waist, but doesn’t look odd or slipper down. Leather (especially suede) is normally stretched out overtime, I feel size 0 and 2 should be similar on me eventually. Unless you want a pair of body-hugging leggings, you may not want to size down for this particular style. There are 5 choice for this style in the outlet stores: black leather ($417), grey leather ($171), cognac (deep brown-purplish, $171), dark chocolate / brown suede and black suede ($171). The black suede ones are my last choice, which look more like velvet than leather. In addition, black suede or leather pants could be picky for boots in winter days, though they are stylish with pumps with no doubt. If you plan to buy these leather pants, you may want to consider the color and size carefully given they are finale sales.

These suede pants are versatile, in winter and spring… Thank you for your reading!

when spring comes...

    Hi,good morning! Viewing your latest post reminds me of the sassybax leggings you once recommended, I read all the reviews on amazon, not sure of the sizing and quality,some said one should go one or two sizes up,some said the bottom part was bit sheer, I am going to wear it with long sweater not with dress, I am usually a size m person, what is your opinion?Thank you so much!Robin

    I have two pairs in size s. They are very thick. Unless you stretch them too much, they are not sheer at all. Buy your normal size. I shopped with another girl, who is 172cm and size M, she wore size M.

    There might have cognac in size 4 at Woodbury theory store, which is dark brown purplish. Also, dark chocolate suede is good. Personally I don't like black suede.

    I ordered size 6 brown suede. Thanks for recommendation! Look forwards to finding out how it fits. BTW, my two Burberry skinny jeans bought at the end of year worked out very well. One in blue jean another in black leather-like material (similar to They hug the body well, do not become baggy at the end of day. I got each below $100.

    Hi, I'm thinking getting one for my wife. However, are those suede pants getting hot and sticky on the body inside room? I've heard her complaint before that her office is too warm sometimes. Thanks.

    Not at all. The inner side (no lining) of these leather pants is cotton. My office is too warm to wear turtleneck sweaters, but these pants never bothered me.
