How to Style Faux Leather Leggings

Not gonna lie, these are my favorite pants. Why? Because they are “fancier” than just cotton leggings, but just as comfy. I have paired them with just about everything and it all works! It is easy to find an affordable option but if you want the suck me in pair, they will cost you about $90. But they last forever!

If you are not comfortable stepping outside of the box and wearing a faux leather, I have linked an affordable pair for you and I want you to just try it! Fashion is fun remember??

1.) I love a good chambray top and its long enough to cover the bum so I paired it with these leggings. Because it is getting colder, adding a cardigan tops off the look.

2.) It’s not a secret I love shoes….and bags and jeans and…..😂 Any sweater pairs well with these leggings as long as it covers the booty. If you are under 25, you can probably let the booty be seen.

3.) OTK boots are an easy way to wear these leggings. They cover almost all of them! Easy, chic look.

4.) I have progressed from leggings to pants because I love them so much. Note the booties….they are on repeat alllll the time. I will link them below because I found them from last year and they are a great investment.

5.) Sweater, boots and of course leggings! Just add a sweater with a bit of a print!

6.) Travel style. I paired them with flip flops and a workout tee for my flight. Easy to add layers and I am that girl who brings socks on the plane because my feet always freeze!

7.) Basic tee and a pop of color. If I know I am going to be wearing my coat for most of the event, I will pair it with something more fun like a graphic tee. A blazer would be a great pop of color or pattern too.

8.) Add a work wear faux wrap blouse. If you work in an office this is an easy outfit to wear. You may get a few looks but if your bits are covered, I don’t see the problem.

Do you have a leather jacket taking up space in your closet because you don’t know what to wear it with? Or maybe you have seen others wearing one and think you could never pull it off? Well ladies I am here to help! I absolutely love my jacket and I did invest in a real leather one because I knew it would be a closet staple for years to come, and it has been! If you prefer faux leather then I will link those too along with a few plus size options too!

1.) About as basic and easy as it gets. Pair it over a white tee and add statement booties, heels, OR sneakers! It adds just the right amount of “put together”.

IMG_4403.jpg

2.) Pair it with a fun (aka LOUD) printed dress! It goes great with leopard or florals to add that bit of edge but breaks up the print.

3.) Add a hoodie underneath it to change up the style! This one has a removable hood and comes in this gorgeous green or burgundy.

5.) Wear it with work pants! It takes them from boring office job to happy hour look instantly! **Don’t tell your boss I called your work boring either 😳
