In this post I will show you my favorite pair of black faux leather leggings styled three different ways. I will show you a very casual look as well as two dressier looks for these darling faux leather leggings. See if I can persuade you to consider wearing these fun pants. And if they seem too edgy for you, you can always substitute black pointe leggings for a more classic look.
I don’t know about you, but as a person who loves classy, elegant looks, I was always a bit reluctant to wear leather leggings or pants. But recently, I decided to give this trend a try. I purchased a pair of black faux leggings, which are also known as vegan leather leggings. I was surprised at how comfortable they were to wear and how fun! Check out these three outfits and see if you don’t agree.
Outfit Number One of the Faux Leather Leggings Looks
In this very casual outfit, I paired a darling gray hoodie with a pair of black faux leather leggings. The day I wore this for a winter brunch outfit, it wasn’t very cold. So instead of boots, I wore my favorite grayish sneakers.
And as you can see from the flat lay, I added a black puffer coat. I love these for trips because they can collapse into very little space, and then be popped on for a great layer. For jewelry, I wore my stainless steel watch, a bangle, and pearl stud earrings.
What do you think of the vegan leather leggings with the hoodie? They are remarkably comfortable and warm, They’re also a breeze to launder (on cool, inside out, and hang to dry), which I had always wondered about before purchasing them.
Outfit Number Two of the Faux Leather Leggings Looks
Here I wore a pink cashmere tunic (belted with a black leather belt) over the same vegan leggings from the second outfit and the same black suede over-the-knee boots as in the first outfit. This was a cute winter outfit for going out to dinner with friends. I wore this to dinner and was nice and warm. Pro tip: Cashmere is such a wonderful fabric as it is warm, while typically not very bulky.
I actually forgot to take a photo of the outfit while in Chicago (where I left behind the over-the-knee boots), so here I instead wore these terrific gray suede booties that I have worn a bunch this season both in Chicago and in California. Pro tip: I have always tended toward black suede booties for years, but this year after trying these gray ones, I strongly recommend them as a fun and useful alternative to black.
I added a pink leopard scarf to my neck. This fills in the henley neckline of the tunic and adds a bit of interest to the otherwise simple outfit pieces. Pro tip: Leopard is a neutral pattern that elevates any style of outfit and goes with everything.
Outfit Number Three of the Faux Leather Leggings Looks
In this third and faux leather legging look, I paired a gray knit woman’s long cardigan and underlying turtleneck, with black vegan leather leggings and black suede booties. I kept the stainless steel watch and pearl bracelet as well as the pearl stud earrings, and even added an opera length strand of pearls. I think this is a perfect outfit for work, that is dressier than the first look. I think this outfit could take you to work, a show or lunch with friends, don’t you?
So there you have it my friend, three different ways to style black faux leather leggings. Would you consider wearing them now? Let me know in the comments below or DM me @drjuliemarshall
