An Age-Appropriate Leather Leggings Outfit


The words “age-appropriate” really rub me the wrong way. I mean who decides these things?! I say wear what makes you feel great and ignore the rules. But with that said, sometimes a little inspiration can be helpful and I think this is totally an age-appropriate way to wear leather leggings.

It’s All About the Layers

A crisp button-down (I love the men’s version), cozy cashmere stripes ( also seen here) and sleek booties keep this look daytime appropriate and perfect for the colder temps. It’s a look that would even work for a more casual holiday party. I love the mix of textures and the polished casual feel. And the leggings add just the right amount of edge. 

And for a slightly dressier vibe, just loose the sweater and add a statement necklace!

Interested in testing the the waters with faux leather leggings?

If you’re thinking of adding a pair of faux leather leggings to your wardrobe, but aren’t wanting to make a big investment, I can’t recommend this pair enough. After wearing these regularly for 2 years, I recently took the plunge and purchased the SPANX leggings that everyone raves about. I will say that they definitely live up to their hype. And while pricey, are totally worth it, especially when I realized I’ve been wearing them more than my favorite jeans! Cost per wear, it’s always about cost per wear:) 

PS: I may have had a couple of glasses of wine with Anna before we shot these photos so excuse the flushed cheeks!
