Happy Friday y’all! If you’ve seen my Instagram posts lately you’ll know about my obsession with leather leggings. Ever since I discovered this Commando pair I’ve understood what the rave was about! Today I want to share my tips with y’all on how to jump on this super fun trend and style these amazing leggings!
Leather leggings are essentially like athletic leggings, they’re super comfortable and stretchy, but with the ability to dress them up to be more formal. I seriously forget I’m wearing pants sometimes because of how lightweight they are (lolz)! They’re much thinner than your typical athletic leggings and very high waisted which is always a plus! After trying on multiple pairs I really think these are the absolute best and their price point is worth it!
When I wear leather leggings or any leggings in general, I always make sure my top is long enough to cover my bum. Especially with the shiny look leather leggings naturally have, making sure your top is longer in the back is a must! That’s why I always opt for tunics, I love the length and how they add a softer touch to the outfit. Mixing different textures together is a great way to make leather leggings look more feminine. Soft sweaters and tops are perfect to tone down the biker vibe and pull together your look.
If you want to wear a shorter top, consider throwing over a long cardigan! One of my favorite ways to wear leather leggings is with a soft V-neck tee, a long cardigan, hoops and a pair of slip on sneakers. So effortless and absolutely gorgeous!
To dress up my leather leggings, I’ll choose an asymmetrical blouse or button up top that’s longer in the back. Asymmetrical tops are super flattering and a great way to change up your look. Shoes are also an easy way to dress up leather leggings, which is why I love block heel booties, they’re more formal but still super comfortable. And if you feel like wearing heels, a classic nude closed toe heel would look great with these too!
Styling leather leggings may seem intimidating but with the right top and accessories they add a fun twist to your closet and are super effortless and chic outfit ideas!
