My Picks: [Faux] Leather Leggings

by on September 21, 2012

As a result of my undying love for leather and leggings, I deemed it critical to share with you some of my favorite faux & genuine leather leggings of the season.

Rich and Skinny ‘Legacy Candy Apple Coated Faux-Leather Leggings,’ $176.

This pair screams “I’m inappropriate for most daytime settings” and I love that about them. I love anything that seems like it would be difficult to wear during the day time, worn in the day time. Pair these with a nude heel/sandal and a neutral blazer and you’d be transported to Chicville in no time. I absolutely love these, and see no reason for them not to mysteriously appear in my closet.

Paige Denim ‘Paloma’ Leather Legging, $299.

Though they’re on the more expensive side, this pair of Paige leggings is made of genuine leather rather than the faux variety. What I love about this pair is that they’re both fashionable and functional – a party in the front and all-business in the back, so to speak, because they’re made of both leather and knit spandex (in the back). These are the most practical leather leggings you could buy, as they’ll conform better to your shape (thanks to the spandex) while still looking like an all-leather legging from the front. What’s not to love about that?!

AG Adriano Goldschmied Faux-Leather Leggings, Black, $198. 

The perfect, sexy-but-classic faux leather legging courtesy of AG. Completely on-trend yet still animal friendly, this faux-leather legging is pretty much the best wardrobe staple you could have in your closet this Fall. I’m not personally familiar with the fit of AG jeans, but I’ve heard the sizing can be tricky at times, so be sure to try this pair on in person rather than ordering them online.

J Brand Jeans ‘L8001 Cognac Leather Super Skinny Pants,’ $895.

The absolutely gorgeous but fiscally unrealistic J Brand Cognac leather pant is definitely a lust of mine. At almost $1,000 (when you include tax), they’re not something I’ll be able to purchase but are beautiful and a must-have nonetheless. This ruddy brown leather is so easy-on-the-eyes, feminine and easy to integrate into a neutral colored outfit that it’s a shame this pair is so expensive. With a soft oatmeal-colored oversized sweater and some short booties? I’d be in heaven.

Parker Faux Leather Pant in Teal, $198.

I absolutely love how this pair of Parker teal faux-leather leggings was styled – in an earthy yet glamorous, muted but flashy way. This pair would seamlessly transition you from a chic day look to a great going-out outfit, and would probably end up expanding your wardrobe in a very big way. With sweaters or dainty tops like the one on the model, this Parker pair is a must-have.

What do you think of these faux & genuine leather leggings? Let me know in the comments section.
