So if you have been reading my recent posts (and if you haven't check out this one and this one) you know that I have been eyeing a certain pair of leather leggings for quite some time! Well I finally caved and bought them. It was one of the most expensive things I have ever bought with all my own money. I know GASP! I'm only 18 and have always lived with my parents who love to spoil me. I don't mean to brag but yeah. Well this summer I got my first job so I had to start buying my own things especially since we are paying for college. The first item I purchased with my first paycheck was the coveted leather leggings found here. Now I know I am a bit late to jump on the leather pant bandwagon but hey, better late than never right! I thought I would show you all a few ways that I would style leather leggings.
Outfit #1: This is the most casual of all the outfits. A simple white tank and large cardigan really tones down the leather of the leggings. Now these leggings aren't extremely shiny like some I have seen which is why I really like them. In the right lighting you can sea more shine. Any ways, I also toned the outfit down with some black high top converse (which are my new obsession btw!) For jewelry I kept it simple with a feather pendant and a watch. There are many ways in which you all can add your own twist to this easy look. Switch out the shoes for your faves or a brighter colored sweater would be cute too!
Outfit #2: This outfit is less casual than the last one but I'm still keeping it pretty casual because I didn't switch up the shoes but stuck with my black high top converse. I think you could totally change up this look but adding a cute pair of combat boots or black booties! For this outfit I am wearing a graphic tee of the Union Jack and a white blazer. I am only wearing a watch with this outfit but I think a long pendant of some sort would look really cute as well.
Outfit #3: This is my outfit for a night out with the girls. It's kind of out there so if its not your style you can totally tone it down. I am wearing a black lace top with a hot pink bandeau underneath. It would look great also with a black bandeau or even a black/colored tank top if that's more your style. I am wearing black pointed flats but I would recommend black heels if you have them. Because I am 5'10.5 I don't really wear heels all that much because it makes me uncomfortable to be any taller than I am. However if you have heels or even black heeled booties I think this is the perfect outfit for them!! I like keeping this all black with a pop of color because it keeps the leather pants chic instead of tacky!
I wish you all well on your leather leggings wearing and I would love to see you all rocking a hot pair of leather leggings. Please send me pictures of how you style this staple!
