Lainey Wilson Wears Custom Leather Bell Bottoms: Check Out Her Trendsetting Look!

Despite the sweltering summer heat, the country superstar looked chic, cool, and collected as she performed in a pair of black flared leather pants — her signature silhouette — and a matching leather vest with turquoise embroidery and fringe details.

Wilson coordinated the look with turquoise accessories, including a beaded statement necklace, cowboy hat, and an assortment of chunky rings. Her long, blonde hair was styled into loose waves, completing her striking appearance.

As part of the Citi Concert Series, Wilson performed her hit song ‘Heart Like a Truck’. During the performance, she brought a young fan on stage, holding her hand and serenading her while the crowd cheered. Wilson’s bold leather bell bottoms were created by a custom leather atelier By The Namesake. 

According to its website, the brand focuses on reinventing the custom leather jacket through customization. Wilson previously said that she began to develop her style after moving to Nashville to pursue music. “I realised really quickly that as a female in country music, it does not matter if you have a decent voice or if you’re a decent songwriter,” she said.

“You gotta do something that is outside the box to get noticed. I thought, ‘What could I wear that would make me feel like I could take on the whole dang world?’ For me, it was bell-bottoms.” The singer shared that her mom, Michelle, bought her first pair of bell bottoms — a blue leopard print variety — when she was 8 or 9 years old. “It was to the point where my mom was like, ‘Lainey, you gotta take ’em off. We gotta wash ’em,’” she recalled. “But I loved them. I loved the way that they made me feel. They made me feel sassy and like I could do anything.”

The Grammy-winner is currently travelling North America with her Country’s ‘Cool Again’ tour and was recently inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, a prestigious country music organisation. “As a little girl, I didn’t dream about my wedding day,” Wilson said in an emotional speech during the ceremony. “I didn’t dream about what song I’d play at my wedding; I dreamed about this right here. I dreamed about what song I would play in the circle if I got the opportunity.”
