the BASICS | Leather leggings

5

In the last couple of weeks I’ve been getting a request after request about how to style leather leggings. I personally LOVE it myself and wear it almost everyday for work, casual (and business) lunches, date nights, movie nights, etc. You name it! The only place where I haven’t wore my leather leggings at yet is the gym because, I’m thinking, it could be a little uncomfortable to wear it during a workout. Although if you are unwilling to part with them for even couple of hours (totally sounds like me) and if your leggings are fabric ones with leather inserts it might just work out fine.

Styling leather leggings is a piece of cake! Just think of what you would normally wear with your favorite pair of jeans and wear the leggings with it instead. It will add more style and edginess to your outfit. If you still are not sure – then keep reading! I’ve got some ideas and inspiration for you below!

EVERYDAY/CASUAL

Running errands or doing quick shopping is not an excuse to put on UGG boots and PINK sweatshirt and joggers. Dressing up for simple occasions like this is fun too! Plus you don’t have to try too hard which will only add to your stylish casual outfit.

HOW TO STYLE


It is getting colder so you probably relocated your warm sweaters from the back of your closet to a spot where it’s easier to reach. Add block heel shoes to your outfit and you are ready to go!

Not feeling like wearing high heels today? Wear it with sweatshirt, sneakers or platform boots and a cap for an athleisure look.


FOR A DAY AT THE OFFICE


If it is not against your company’s policy you can definitely rock your leather leggings at workplace as well! And it is much easier than you think! Just be prepared to get a ton of complements.

HOW TO STYLE


Of course you can keep it simple and classy and wear it with a turtleneck and black stilettos but I am really liking the ideas of a matching blazer and ankle boots! You can keep the turtleneck as well but my advice – you if are going for a beige blazer and boots choose white turtleneck to keep it fresh.

Want to keep it in back and white – throw black sleeveless jacket on top of your white turtleneck, add black flats with jeweled detail (like these J.Crew ones – OMG gotta buy it!!!) and beautiful Kate Spade’s earrings to keep it simple yet interesting.

ROMANTIC DATE

Didn’t I tell you that leather leggings literally work with everything? When you think leather you probably have an image of brutal bikers popping up in your head but add a lightweight tunic (to an outfit with leather leggings not a biker in your head) and immediately the outfit becomes light and romantic.

HOW TO STYLE


For a romantic look choose a lightweight blouse with ruffles and stiletto sandals. I wouldn’t accessorize the outfit too much. Beautiful embroidered clutch and stud earrings would do the job.

If you prefer a sexier look try it with sequin wrap dress with plunging v neckline, point toe boots and statement earrings.

 


PARTY TIME


And to my favorite part! There are SO many different way to style leather leggings for parting and going out. It can be with your favorite mini dress, or a beautiful top. High heels are a must, of course. They make you taller and more confident, for sure!

HOW TO STYLE


I am ABSOLUTELY it love with this bodysuit! Lace is romantic yet sexy but with this neckline it is definitely more sexy though, even provocative. So I choice to keep that idea through out the whole outfit with a choker and pointy lace-up pumps.

Embroidered white mesh top is another top on my “gotta buy it” list so as velvet boots. Velvet is really trendy at the moment. Especially with footwear. Not your basic kind of boots. It is made for parties and looking decadent.
