I dipped my toe into the faux leather leggings trend a few times over the past couple of winters, but I wasn’t completely sure I could pull them off. Then I started to hear other bloggers go on and on over this pair. I spent a good solid year laughing about it in my head. I mean who would pay almost $100 for a pair of faux leather leggings?! Don’t these girls know that you can pick up a pair on Amazon for $15?!
The Faux Leather Leggings Anyone Can Pull Off
Then over the holidays, one of my best friends ordered a pair during the sales and let me know what’s up. They really were that good. And since even I can be swayed after seeing and hearing about them over again, I broke down and ordered them. And you know what? She, and all the others, are right. They’re amazing. Like wear 4x a week amazing. Like wear with sweatshirts and sneakers and dresses and boots and casually and dressed up amazing. In fact, you can see how I wore them with a tunic and OTK boots here.
So what makes these the faux leather leggings anyone can pull off? First, the fabric which isn’t overly glossy, but more of a matte textured look. This is what makes these legging so versatile. Second, the fit. They literally suck everything in. We’re talking smoothing out cellulite and sucking in your tummy and doing it all while not feeling constricting in the least. It’s like some kind of a miracle! These are faux leather leggings anyone can pull off, no matter your age.

The Athleisure Trend
In this post, I styled these faux leather leggings anyone can pull off in a super casual way. I’ve been living in this oversized Adidas sweatshirt that’s actually men’s! If you prefer the women’s version you can find it here. A couple of other newer purchases are these glittery sneakers that can make even a bad day feel better and are under $30, and this under $50 reversible tote that literally every woman should own. This is an outfit I wear lots of weekend and frankly lots of week days when I’m just running errands or working from home. What are your thoughts on the athleisure trend?
