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.
