15 outfits to create with faux leather leggings


  1. Leather leggings and sneakers

For a casual look, styling your faux leather leggings with sneakers is a no brainer. Perfect for running errands or going to grab lunch!

2. Leather leggings and an oversized sweatshirt

I love the contrast of a baggy oversized sweatshirt with tight leather leggings. So effortless but still put together.

3. Leather leggings and a blazer

Leather leggings and a blazer are a combination I wouldn’t have thought to try until I saw how cute it looked on someone else. Go casual with a boyfriend blazer, a cropped tee, and sneakers or sleek with a tailored blazer and booties.

4. Leather leggings and denim

Denim looks good with everything and leather leggings are no exception. Throw on a denim jacket or a comfy denim button down with your leggings and you’ve instantly created a cute outfit.

5. Leather leggings and a graphic tee

The perfect outfit for when you miss the sorority t-shirts from college. Tuck in or tie up a graphic tee with your faux leather leggings, throw on a jacket, and call it a day!

6. Leather leggings and heels + a nice top

Leggings as pants? I know what you are thinking but this can be done super classy. My personal favorite is pairing these patent leather leggings with a fun top for a night out. Just don’t forget your seamless undies!

7. Leather leggings and faux fur

Faux fur in the winter is just beautiful and leather leggings make it pop even more. Pairing a fur jacket with leather leggings creates a stunning outfit that will have everyone’s head turning.

8. Leather leggings and knee high boots

This is another combination with my leather leggings I resisted for awhile, but with the right outfit can look amazing. I love the look of a long jacket, leather leggings, and knee high boots.

9. Leather leggings and a leather jacket

How much leather is too much leather? You can wear leather on leather without feeling like a biker chick. Done right, this combination will make you feel hotter than Sandy from Grease!

10. Leather leggings and a patterned jacket

Show off your unique, statement jacket by pairing it with a simple top and leather leggings. The black sleek leggings will make your coat pop!

11. Leather leggings and an oversized sweater

Again, the look of a baggy top with tight-fitting leggings is always flattering. This is probably my most frequent way to wear leather leggings! I wore this amazon oversized sweater with my leather leggings probably 200 times last year and I’m not mad about it.

12. Leather leggings and layers

Many people can feel weird without their hips covered while wearing leather leggings (me included) so a way around that is by layering. Have a cropped sweater that would look killer with leather leggings? Throw on a longer rounded hem tee or button down under it to cover the booty and problem solved.

13. Leather leggings and an all black look

An all black look in the winter is hard to beat. There is something so simple yet so stunning about a black turtleneck and black leather leggings. Pro tip: mix textures when doing a monochromatic look! Think knit sweater, leather leggings, and suede boots.

14. Leather leggings and a tan coat

Two of the biggest fall essentials IMO are leather leggings and a camel jacket. They both go with almost everything in your closet and will never let you down when trying to find something to wear. Alone they are great staples but together they create a great outfit!

For street style, think an oversized hoodie, leather leggings, sneakers, and a tan trench coat.

For a dressy look, think a nice sweater, leather leggings, boots, and your camel coat.

15. Leather leggings and a white tee

When you can’t find anything to wear in your closet, create a base for your look by throwing on your favorite leather leggings and white tee. Then slowly add layers, shoes, and jewelry until you have a look you are excited to leave the house in!
