Any type of pants that look leather, let alone leather leggings, often get a bad rap. While they’re usually very luxurious looking on their own, they’re often styled in a way that makes them look a little too over-the-top — think sparkling tops or shirts with plunging necklines — making them an option that’s often associated with party or club attire.
But the truth is, leather-look leggings are actually a very versatile staple that can be styled in ways that are approachable and classy enough to wear everyday. Here are three of my favorite ways to wear them for fall:
This outfit is also all about proportions, with the slim leggings balancing out the silhouette of the oversized sweater. It’s an easy go-to for days when you don’t want to think too hard about your outfit, but still want to feel comfortable and look fashion-forward. On colder days, I like to throw an oversized swing coat on top, and wear my favorite pair of flats so I can get around town without sacrificing comfort.
I love the look of a soft, feminine blouse under a structured blazer — and with leather-look leggings, it really takes the ensemble up a notch. The edginess of the faux leather balances really nicely with the softer feeling of the top, and the blazer and pumps give it a sophisticated finish. I love this look for business meetings when I want to feel confident and powerful, or for going from the office to an event after work.
If you’re headed out to something special, try this look on for size! Nothing says luxury more than a faux fur coat, and pairing it with faux leather leggings and any type of heel really brings the look together in a bold way that’s tasteful and classy. To make it feel extra luxe, add gold accessories.
