I blogged about my quest for the perfect faux leather leggings here. Unfortunately, none of the ones I listed worked out. The Zara ones dipped so much in the back whenever I sat down, it was like a viewing party for my crack. The Blank ones just didn't fit right and I loved the Paper Crown leggings, except the S was a little too big and they were sold out of the XS.
BTW, if you're in the market for a pair of faux leather leggings, they now have XS here and M here. Act now because these are sold out everywhere! The leather on the Paper Crown ones looked great and it had an extra wide, extra high waist so it works double duty to smooth out your mid section.
I ended up getting mine at Aritzia and I'm pretty happy with them. As you can tell by now, I've been loving leather this Fall but I definitely follow some guidelines when wearing this trend.
- Never wear with another article of leather clothing. (I abhor anything matchy matchy.)
- Don't over-accessorize (too many spikes and studs is overkill for a leather look!)
- Pair with unexpected pieces (casual t-shirt, chunky sweater, ladylike blouse)
Here, I kept the rest of my look very casual and comfy (cableknit sweater, my favorite flats and a classic bag) to bring the leather leggings to a daytime appropriate look. I've gotten a lot of use out of my leggings so far and I'm so glad I took the plunge on them early. Have you jumped on the leather bandwagon yet?
