Honestly I was never much of a leggings person, until I discovered faux leather leggings a few years ago. They are so versatile to wear whether you want to dress them down on the weekend with sneakers and a denim jacket or dress them up with boots and a chic blazer. They’re definitely one of my favorite things for fall and winter (I included them in my capsule wardrobe) because they’re so comfortable and stylish, and there’s nothing easier than faux leather leggings and a big cozy sweater. There’s also some great maternity friendly options so you don’t have to give them up when you’re pregnant. Here’s a few of my favorite styles and some ideas for how to wear them.
How To Style Faux Leather Leggings
go casual with sneakers
The easiest and comfiest look with faux leather leggings, just add sneakers and a comfy sweater or oversize tee.
DRESS THEM UP WITH OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
Over the knee boots with faux leather leggings and a turtleneck sweater or sweater dress is a super cute outfit for date night or a holiday party.
pick a classic color combo
Pair faux leather leggings with classic shades like grey, camel and dark shades of green.
PLAY WITH PROPORTION
Go oversized on top when you’re styling faux leather leggings. Whether it’s a menswear blazer, oversize sweater or graphic tee and cardigan, something with a little more room on top looks great paired with leggings.

OVER THE KNEE BOOTS WITH FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS
I love the Marc Fisher or Steve Madden over the knee boots. This cable knit turtleneck sweater is great for holiday parties and all winter long. The Everlane turtleneck sweater dress is also super cozy and a great length with faux leather leggings.
