WAYS TO STYLE LEATHER LEGGINGS
As we head into the chillier months I thought it was the perfect time to share 3 ways to style my absolute favorite alternative for when my Denim Mom jeans need a rest (or a wash); Leather leggings! Leather Leggings are an absolute must to mix up your winter wardrobe and add a little edge to your wardrobe. I purchased the j Spanx Moto leggings a while back during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. With the price obviously going up on these after the sale I would label them as an investment piece and certainly not the best option if you arent already rotating leather leggings into your wardrobe.
Not to Worry! Along with style advice you can find links to try a pair of leather leggings and decide for yourself!
What I think I love most about leather leggings is how easy they are to transition from daytime casual to a sophisticated evening look. I am certainly more of a leggings over jeans gal just for the sole fact they are more versatile than jeans.
For a daytime look try:
a graphic tee layered with a flannel or or basic tank with a longer length cardigan
My weekend go to look is 80% of the time the following combination of oversized pullover sweater with flats or booties. It takes almost the same time it would to throw on a sweatshirt and sweats but it obviously looks about a million times better. I gravitate towards modest sweaters with high necklines or longer hemline. THIS SWEATER or THIS ONE are perfect. THE LEGGINGS ON THE LEFT ARE UNDER $40 >
HOW TO WEAR LEATHER LEGGINGS IN THE EVENING
- Swap out booties for a pair of pumps. On the chillier winter evenings add in another layer to your look by opting for suede over the knee boots.
- A tailored peplum or relaxed top with feminine detailing balance and soften the look of leather leggings
- Try a basic sweater with edgy statement jewelry or scarf.
- Do a simple swap out of your flannel or cardigan for a tailored blazer
