How to Wear Faux Leather Leggings

December 15, 2017

If I’m not wearing jeans I’m wearing leggings and visa versa. I’m not really a dress girl (especially this time of year) which presents some challenges when I need to get a little dressed up. The faux leather legging trend, or any legging with a lux fabric (think velvet, suede etc..) can be a game changer because they are an extremely versatile wardrobe staple. But how do we wear them?! This question pops up in my inbox very frequently so I thought it warranted an entire post.The Motherchic wearing Yummie Leggings

First let’s discuss the leggings themselves. I’ve written before about leggings and I am partial to  high waisted leggings. I particularly love the Yummie brand because they accentuate all the right places while giving your mid-section a little “hug”. I also love that they are a body positive brand and want women to embrace their curves while helping give the confidence to do so. While I am not curvy, I have terrible veins in my legs (hence why I don’t like dresses). Wearing things with a slight compression feels amazing on my legs, especially post partum, and ever since I’ve had kids anything high waisted with compression is a win-win. And thank goodness for companies like Yummie who understand these problems and had the foresight to design fashionable ones. Because who wouldn’t want to run around in leggings all day?

Here are a few ideas for how to wear faux leather leggings (or suede or velvet) for both day and night.
