I’m so happy and proud to share five ways to style leather leggings and here’s why, as a curvy girl, my Love for leather pants remained unrequited for a long time. I would look at magazines and see all these cool “it girls” rocking leather pants, and they looked so good, It made me want to try them. The only problem was, none of those ladies were similar to me in body shape or size. Not even close.
I let season after season go by watching other people enjoy leather pants wishing I could do the same yet knowing that all my lusciousness couldn’t fit in those cool yet rigid pants. Honestly, I didn’t even bother trying on a pair because if you are curvy, the only thing more depressing than jean shopping would have to be shopping for tight, rubbery, unforgiving leather pants.
Faux Leather Leggings/ Pants To Wear Now
To my delight, things took a turn, the trend gods heard our pleas, and all of a sudden, the stretch was in (still is thank God)! With the invention of stretch came what I like to call the Leggings Uprising preceded by the Jeggings Takeover. Leggings completely took over the fashion industry, and alas, us curvy ladies, had a chance.
Fashion houses all over the world had to find ways to make leggings suitable for other situations besides the gym because:
- Everyone started wearing their gym gear out and about. (most never really made it to the gym)
- If you are smart, you give the people what they want.
- Trends sell.
A new way of life was upon us, and finally, someone thought to merge the comfort and stretch of leggings with the fresh and edgy look of leather pants. What a time to be alive! haha
In this post, I’m demonstrating how to style leather leggings in five varying ways. I expect they’ll be another style session featuring said leather and Ponte as cooler weather approaches in the next few months. You can find my exact faux leather leggings here. I’m in love with this particular pair because it’s basically Ponte knit leggings with a leather panel at the front. genius right!
