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 atย 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 definitely agree about leather leggings and especially love how you styled them with the floral dress and furry jacket. I’ve heard great things about Spanx, too, but haven’t gotten a pair either (although one style is currently waiting on my Nordstrom wish list!) Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xo

    I need to buy myself more leggings. Not a fan of those either, but looks like having a paid would be useful

    Love how you’ve styled leggings, they are something I wear as my everyday casual look and the way you’ve teamed them together with these gorgeous picks work ever so nicely. Particularly love the floral elements and little biker jacket.

    You look great in your leggings in all of the ways you’ve worn them ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like your monochrome outfit the best though, that cardi looks so cosy!

    I love leggings for that little extra warmth in winter, they come in so helpful then.

    Hope you’re having a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    You summed it up perfectly, Amy, with describing leggings as being god’s gift to women. So very true. Perfect for just about any occasion. And I love all your options. From that darling embroidered dress to that glamorous vibe of the side slit sweater complete with fur collar ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t know Spanx did their own version, I need a pair of those. I love how you’ve styled them. I’ve always avoided them in the past but think I’m going to have to take a leaf out of your book and get myself some! xx
