How to Wear Faux Leather Leggings

Yesterday we featured the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings with Fleece Lining. They are fantastic, especially wonderful if you live in a chilly party of the country or for outdoor holiday activities.

I thought it would be helpful to share how to wear them, with our without the fleece lining for upcoming events you might have on your calendar with items we’ve recently featured and some new finds.

And take your time with this one because there are so many good, wearable items in the post.

The SPANX Faux Leather Leggings, available in all sizes, including Petite and Plus.

Either style runs small so go up one if you are in between when ordering.

I have owned mine for years and they have not stretched out. 

How to Wear Faux Leather Leggings Three Ways

For today’s looks I created three easy ways to wear these leggings in your real life.

You’ll recognize some of these pieces from past posts (remember, we’re trying to build a mix and match wardrobe over time), others are new and worth taking a peek at. 

With Sneakers

Sneakers, $175 | Sweater, $40| Earrings, $14| Bag, $89

I wore this look just last night to dinner with girlfriends.

The striped tunic is from Amazon, for $40, in S – XXL. I took the medium. The side slits are a nice touch and keep in mind the sleeves are suppose to be long and wide.

I paired it with my black and white Veja’s. These are a great low-profile sneakers, super comfortable, and look sporty and chic. They are currently fully stocked at Neiman’s.

Add a pair of gold hoops, like this chunky pair from Amazon and I grabbed a black quilted chain bag, similar to this find from Quince for $90.

Ankle Boots

Blazer, $108 | Boots, $75 |  Earrings, $14| Bag, $89

Next, this paid blazer from Express (featured on Sunday) is the perfect length to pair with leggings.

Here, you’re wearing the blazer as the top, so you’re not taking it off. All you need underneath is a tank. We like this inexpensive black one from Amazon.

I’m excited to find these Vince Camuto Booties, on sale for under $75 at DSW. They are short enough to give you a long leg, and allow the hem of the legging to sit inside.

And for accessories, we’re reusing the gold hoops and quilted bag.

Knee Boots

Finally, I love this look featuring the J.Crew Piper Boots.

I added this plaid poncho from Amazon, you can wear it over a long sleeve crewneck tee shirt or a turtleneck, we like this one, also from Amazon.

Then, I found an oversized tote, great for travel or lug all your stuff to Thanksgiving, and these pearl novelty earrings.

Is it still the "rule" to wear tops that cover your assets when wearing leggings, or am I dating myself? Thank you!

Can these faux leather leggings be worn with black suede boots or should we stick with just a smooth leather boot? Thankful for your website and blog - this has been tremendously helpful building my wardrobe!!
