Faux Leather Leggings

Besides a faux leather jacket in the spring and fall, I’m not much of a faux leather fan. A fair weather faux leather wearer, you could say. (There are more bad jokes where that came from. Don’t you worry,  I’m an endless supply.) So it struck me as odd that I bought these faux leather leggings. But the minute I saw them online, I was like that’s what I want to wear with my big sweaters! And sure enough the are perfect for that. (They aren’t too tight and they stretch so basically they were made for this time of the year.) They just give my sweater a little more swagger than my regular denim. Swagger: something I am always in need of and can never find.

    You have great style, but please – 14 huge photos for one post – it takes forever for me to scroll through to see the items. Just an FYI that it’s a ton of pics. I love the diff angles, but soo much scrolling.

    I have a pair of faux leather leggings too, and since I bought them a few weeks ago, I’ve been wearing them waaaaay too often! They add the right amount of style and edge to an outfit and look pretty fab with heels!

    The drape on that top is the bizness! and I love the look of what I call liquid leggings, but I feel like I’m too old and they were for my clubbing days.

    Love this simple look! I have been obsessed with leather leggings myself this season and love the idea of pairing them with strappy heels and a loose tee.

    I don’t know how you do it, Kendi. You take a piece of clothing that could easily end up looking trashy and elevate it so that it looks classy and pretty. Thanks for sharing your style.

    Love these leggings! Did you find the sizing to be similar to your regular size or did you need to size up?

      I actually sized up but I don’t know if that’s necessary. I wanted to stay away from them being too tight but I almost feel like they are loose. I would stick true to size!
