How to style faux leather leggings

If you love the look of leather leggings, but just don’t know how to wear them, you are not alone. Leather leggings are a hot trend this season that all of the celebs are wearing. But many fashionistas around the world are a bit hesitant of this new fad. How do you wear them? Where can you find them? Can I afford them? These are all frequently asked questions. And I have an answer to all of them.

Contrary to what the leather leggings are tied to, (grunge & rock) these fashion forward statement pieces can easily be dressed up, adding a chic finish to your work or event attire. By simply pairing with a blazer and some chic heels, these leggings can go from cool to classy in minutes!

Not only are these fashion must-haves good at dressing things up, they are also great for giving your casual outfit a chic finish. They have been known to look much better with roomy/baggy tops and lots of layers. When dressing them down, adding sneakers or boots, an oversized tee or sweater, and a beanie will nearly always be phenomenal. This will certainly give you that cool and comfy look everyone is striving for this season!

Now that you know how to style them you think “Okay, so where can I find some?” And “Can I afford them?” While there are endless styles of designer ones that range from $100 to $1,000, I have managed to steal some pretty great bargains on a couple pairs, of awesome quality, too. I found a pair that are only front paneled leather, with zippered front and back pockets at Forever21 for an amazing price of $15. However, they do also sell entirely leather pairs for around the same price. I also snagged a great pair of coated denim (black jeans that have been coated in a shiny finish to get a leather look) from PacSun, the brand being Bullhead Denim. These babies were originally around $50 but I scored them on sale for $10! Champion bargain shopper right here! 🙂 They are both super comfy, and contrary to many’s assumptions, are very flexible and not stiff at all. I would highly recommend investing in a pair from one of these places.

So now that you know leather leggings can be dressed up with a blazer and heels, dressed down with an oversized top and sneakers, are super affordable and really comfortable, what’s holding you back from getting a pair!? If you haven’t already, I would highly recommend investing in this super hot fashion trend!

Winter Chic

Look of the Day time! Today, I chose an ensemble that would be perfect for those chilly, late fall days, but I just had to wear this today because I just scored this scarf yesterday! (Only seven bucks! Holla!) Even though the color scheme is a bit autumn oriented, this outfit is perfect to wear on freeeeezing days like today. Like literally freezing. (The HIGH here in Kansas for today was only 19! Brrrrr!). If you’re really aiming for the cozy look, I suggest finding a scarf that is really thick and that you can wrap around your neck about three times. This makes it look fuller around your neck and more cozy. The scarf I’m wearing is an infinity scarf and I was able to wrap it around three times. And if your scarf isn’t infinity, never fear! There is a solution! just take the ends of the scarf and tie them together, making a loop. BOOM. Infinity scarf! Tall leather boots also play a huge role in the cozy chic look. They are super warm and super chic. I happened to score these babies for twenty bucks at Charlotte Russe a few weeks ago! Holla again! 🙂 But if you are thinking to buy a pair, NOW IS THE TIME! since spring is right around the corner, stores are putting all their winter boots on sale. (Even though its still cold as heck outside!) The last major component to this look is the ivory sweater. I actually bought this at JC Penney a few years ago for about twenty bucks. And I cannot stop wearing it! It goes great with just about any winter piece and is super comfy and cozy. When I bought mine, I made sure I bought a large on purpose, though I’m normally an extra small. This makes the sweater look even comfier and cozier, and not to mention cuter! (In my opinion) But whether you buy it big, or just normal, the ivory sweater is a need this winter season!
And just like that, with three major pieces, each twenty dollars or less, you can create a super chic winter outfit! And don’t forget to play around with colors and palettes to create your own unique look! What’s your opinion on this ensemble? How would you change it? Feedback is welcomed! Did you create your own version of the winter chic outfit? If so, leave a comment with a link to the picture! I would love to check it out and give feedback! Happy styling!
