The latest runway shows have confirmed it: The leather pants and leather leggings of fashion weeks past have evolved. From rocker-chic to casual-cool, (faux) leather pants have become looser and more trouser-like. These baggy styles are undeniably effortless and certainly trendy, but we have to wonder... are baggy leather pants college-wearable?

We are a little torn about the staying power of this style. On one hand, we don't see leather leggings going "out" anytime soon, so this style does make sense. However, baggy leather trousers seem a lot trickier to wear than their legging counterparts. (And, okay, do they give anyone else bad '90s flashbacks?) This could definitely be one of those trends we look back on while asking, "what was I thinking?"

Would you wear baggy leather pants?
