Give it a Try: Leather Leggings

Leather. It’s pretty much the “it” item of the season, am I right? And I for one, am I big fan. In fact, I’ve previously featured my leather jacket and leather detail dress already this Fall. But one piece I was a little hesitant to try was leather leggings. For some reason, they completely intimidated me. So when Legwear Loft contacted me about sampling one of their items I was hesitantly drawn to the leggings. To dip my toe in the ole leather leggings pool, I went with their faux leather trim leggings. And guess what? I love black leggingsleather trim leggingsTrying them out was definitely an exercise in getting outside of my boundaries. Just because I’m typically drawn to girly, feminine pieces doesn’t mean I can’t throw a little edge in there every once in a while, right? And once I put this look together, it still felt completely “me.”faux leather trim leggingsfaux leather leggingsleopard trim tuniclong tunic leopard trimleopard detail tunicSo the unsolicited advice of the day is to get out there and try something new. You might be pleasantly surprised!

    Yeah I think leather leggings would intimidate me. But these with just the accent of leather, I would probably try! You look great, the top was a perfect match for your new leggings!

    I think the leather trim is perfect for a pair of leggings if you are hesitant to go full out leather. You styled these beautifully!

    Leather leggings intimidate the heck out of me too! But once I actually wore then, I realized they weren’t THAT scary. You look so gorgeous!

    Look at you in those leather leggings! You look awesome! Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone – I always feel a little weird trying new things, but I am usually happy with the results. It is so good to get out of your comfort zone sometimes!

    Just the trim makes for a very different and so much more approachable look than full on leather!

    Dropping by from the I Feel Pretty Linkup! Thanks for the advice :) I should try something new today! I have tried on a few pairs of leather pants, haven’t made the plunge yet.

    I just bought some and can’t wait to take them on vacation with me this weekend! I’m gonna try them with some plaid and boots, 90s style! I think yours would look equally as good with something girlie, like a pink lace tunic.
