I’ll admit, I shied away from this trend for a while, believing that leather leggings would look a bit too “hard” for my taste (remember Joan Jett?). Then I saw several of my girlfriends wear them and quickly realized how versatile and classy they can be. I’ve seen leather leggings styled to look edgy and modern, polished and feminine, even sporty and casual. The look changes dramatically, depending on what you pair them with (which is great at this time of year, when we might want to “glam up” for holiday gatherings).
Check out the photo gallery below for some ideas.
And if you’d rather not invest in real leather, there are many faux-leather styles. I happen to love the High Rise Gleam Tight 2.0 by Athleta, which has faux-leather in front and a stretchy lycra in back. Cool and comfortable!
Whichever style you choose, be sure to pair it with your very best accessories – a big smile and a healthy dose of confidence!
