It’s true I love leather leggings, but they weren’t always a closet staple for me. I would be scared that they were too edgy and I didn’t want to look like an edgy rocker chick. I mean that look is awesome on some, but simply not me. I have a fun and girly personality and think that when styled appropriately leather leggings can definitely reflect that. You may have seen me style them in all black before, but today I’m sharing with you how you can pull them off and bring out the fun and feminine side of things.
Mixing prints will show off your fun side.
In addition to the edginess of leather leggings, various prints will show off your fun side. Throw in leopard and you are showing some sass. Add stripes and you are playful. Combine both in the same outfit and you have made a bold mixed prints statement. It’s especially easy to do when they are found in your accessories. Prints on your shoes and bag can be the easiest way to mix prints without looking overly print mixed.
A flowy top and jewelry can show off your classy side.
I like to create a classy contrasting look by adding flowy top and feminine jewelry. I have found this tunic to be SO versatile and extremely flattering on all body types. I’ve worn this outfit before with this top in a different color and left it untucked. Depending on your mood, and the look you’re going for, it’s easy to tuck this tunic in or out. I love versatility to be able to mix up my wardrobe whenever possible! Lucky for you, it’s 40% off and only $25 right now.
Why you need leather leggings:
These skinny faux leather leggings are a staple in my closet. They can be dressed up in a way that makes you look super edgy. For casual weekends, you can pair it with a tee and flats. For comfortable days, you can wear a sweater and riding boots. For a fun night out, you can wear a flowy top or tank and heels. Whatever your occasion, you can find a way to style them and keep it classy!
To help you find a pair you love, here are three tips:
1. Faux or real leather? I choose faux every time. Not only are they cheaper and vegan-friendly, but they are also much easier to care for than leather. They wash well and the spandex nature of them make them a great fit too!
2. Avoid high glossy styles. I find these too loud and flashy. They call a lot of attention to your pants, and since leather leggings already make a sexy statement it’s not necessary to be calling that much attention to your legs.
3. Look for pant-like styles. Every time I tried on a pair of the cheap spandex leather leggings, they just would not fit. They were either too tight or saggy, or too short for my long legs. They just didn’t fit right. I finally invested in a pant’s version of these leggings and don’t know how I ever survived without them! With the addition of pockets and belt loops, they are an awesome multi-purpose style.
