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.

    I love a good faux leather legging look, they’re so versatile, aren’t they?! I think the long sweater looks of yours are my favorite, particularly with that fringe sweater!

    I love faux leather leggings! They dress up any outfit and they are so classy! Love the over-the-knee boots with the cozy cardigan as well! We are running a giveaway right now for a free pair of jeans and I think they would be a great transition piece from maternity wear! Congrats!

    I’m not really a fan of leggings either but definitely can’t go past a pair of (faux!) leather leggings for instant rock chic glam!

    Killing it in leather leggings. I love the way you styled your leggings and that ombre cardi is so cool. I’m obsessed with leather leggings. They’re so comfy to wear and like you said, they can be worn with just about anything. I think I own three pairs, crazy!
    Hope you have a great weekend!
