Leather leggings, a closet staple you may ask? This is my second winter obsessing over these comfort pants that are totally rock n’ roll (definitely not your standard-issue yoga pant). True cow, vegan leather, pleather, or “leather-like”…whatever your preference and price point, there is a pair out there for you. For example, the sheered pair featured in this post are surprisingly flattering and so easy to wear. These leggings dress up your usual tee and cardi or, when paired with a heeled bootie and a sleek top, can even make an appearance after hours. Keep reading for a “Legging 101” below.
- Contrast the proportions of your outfit. The leggings will cling to your body, so be sure that you wear a loose shirt or long sweater on top to balance your proportions. If you read my blog with regularity, you know that I am ordinarily a huge fan of tucking..when wearing a pair of legging, DON’T TUCK.
- Layer. Leggings are a great foundation; pair them with a sweater, coat and/or boots to add interest to your look.
- Dress leggings up. Be mindful that your look doesn’t read too casual (unless you really are just coming from the gym). Instead, be sure to add dressy extras like the finishing touches in this look (pearl earrings, polished booties and a croc-embossed clutch).
All of the clothes featured in this post can be found at Queen Anne Dispatch. This is my favorite local boutique for everything from special occasion dresses to greeting cards, from one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry to thoughtful hostess gifts. If you are in the Seattle area, you must make your way in to check out their uniquely curated selection. And, next Friday, November 7th, they are hosting a Friends & Family event from 6-10pm featuring a live DJ, drinks and small bites…and 20% off the entire store! Be sure to stop in and shop with me next week.
