How Sydney Wears It: Faux-Leather Leggings
Dressed up or down, this easy piece adds a touch of toughness to any outfit. By Sydney Poulton
Comments () | Published March 6, 2012

Faux-leather leggings are a trend I’ve been excited about for a long time. Since getting my first pair, I’ve been wearing them on the regular. Not quite sure how to style them? Here’re a few ideas to get you started.

1) Everyday Elegance

Keep your outfit simple yet chic with classic black pumps, a boyfriend blazer, and a V-neck tee. A gold plate necklace is a simple, understated accessory.

2) Punky Prep

Button-ups are an easy pairing with faux-leather leggings. On top, try mixing patterns (more on that here) with a printed belt. Streamline the rest of the look with coordinating black booties and purse.

3) Cozy Cute

This last look can be pulled off with just about any combination of oversize sweater and flats. The texture of the leggings is key here—they keep the outfit from being boring.

  • I think leather leggings perfectly fits with any long top.The best key feature of this outfit is the texture of this legging.

  • Leggings are the most essential type of clothing of every college going girl. They are usually worn under dresses, tucked into boots or worn with cute tunic tops.

    love these leggings! I have normal knit leggings with faux leather knee patches but they are definitely for cooler weather cuz of the breathability :)
