How to Style Faux Leather Leggings

November 4, 2016

I thought we might as well talk about how to style faux leather leggings since I keep wearing them. To be honest, I have never been a huge legging fan. That is until I snagged a faux leather pair. Somehow they instantly add some edge while simultaneously being the most comfortable thing ever. If that isn’t a win, I don’t know what is. Here’s the truth: you can really style them with anything! I recently wore them with an embroidered tunic (post here), and I have a post coming up with a plaid top as well. Any looser, longer fitting piece on top will make the look and slim your legs all at the same time.

Today I styled my faux leather leggings with a black tunic blouse (non-maternity and the same as the white version I shared here), the coolest ombre style cardigan, and my over the knee boots. A cardigan is an easy layering piece that covers a little more if you are so inclined. Scroll down for more styling options. If you’re in the market for a faux leather pair, I bought mine at Forever21 last year. This pair is almost exact. After baby, I am buying the Spanx pair. I had heard great things and tried them on in-store. I need a little more give at the moment, but they are suuuppper flattering.

    A pair of faux fur leggings is something which misses in my closet but Yours goes perfectly with the long-fringed sweater…

    I never have been fan of leggings too, but on my mind there is to get some pair and the faux leather one. You with these wonderful styled looks just confirmed that I need a pair.
