27 Oct Turning Heads Linkup- Styling Faux Leather Leggings with a Long Cardigan
Faux-Leather leggings are becoming one of the staples to have in a woman’s closet for Fall/Winter. With various ways to wear them, they are a way to look stylish and have fun with fashion.
These dark chocolate brown faux leather leggings are something I pull out from my closet every year. I enjoy wearing them different ways, and today have styled them with a delicate lace cami and camel colored open cardigan from H&M.
I have been tempted to buy the Spanx faux leather leggings which are hugely popular each year at Nordstrom, but the name indicates that there is some compression in them and I don’t like anything tight against my tummy! With various GI problems, I am sure you understand. So, instead, I have this Zara pair which adds a bit of flair with the zips at the ankles and dark brown color different from your typical black.
The pretty tan lace cami would go with various cardigans and jackets, and give some of the menswear a more feminine vibe.
I also wanted black, and bought a pair of faux leather leggings from Ann Taylor years ago, that I take out to style in the Fall months.
Ways I am thinking and have worn faux leather leggings include
- With a long soft cardigan, cami and leggings. Add fun booties for an added print or texture.
- I wear faux leather pants with a long tunic sweater. Tunics are often “the choice” when it comes to leggings for certain women.
- Wear with a longer, double breasted blazer. Add block heels and you have a sophisticated, conservative look. You could always add some “whimsy” with an unexpected booties. ( leopard print, croc texture) ..
It was beautiful on Friday when we went to look at leaves and enjoy driving the scenic route of The Blue Ridge Highway.
Much of the rest of the weekend it rained, so we continued to do work around the house, and ew ordered Italian from a local place, and watched the movie, The Princess Bride from the 80s. It was moms pick and she was surprised I didn’t see it. We laughed at one of the lines, at the “man in black” who wore a mask, saying ” Many people will be wearing masks in the future!” I don’t think this is what they had in mind. It was fun though, with its “Monty Python-eque” humour!
Do you have faux leather leggings you wear often in the Fall? How do you style them>?
