The Best Faux-Leather Leggings of the Season

Leather leggings have become a mainstay in the closets of our favorite celebrities and street style stars. However, others have stayed away from the now-classic pant, feeling that they don’t align with a vegan lifestyle. Thankfully, faux-leather leggings started popping up to fill the void, allowing more people to wear the growing trend. At first, they weren’t the best quality, but that’s now a problem of the past. Today there are so many great options that look just like the real thing. The other plus is that these faux-leather leggings come without the hefty price tag of the real deal. Done and done.

As for how to wear the leggings, we’re happy to report that the outfit ideas are endless. You can go the off-duty model route and wear your pair with a basic tee or sweater layered under a leather jacket (faux of course!). Another option popular ensemble as of late for the colder weather is to pair yours with an oversize puffer coat and statement sneakers. For a more middle-ground ensemble, try yours with a checked blazer, classic sweater, and ankle boots. Still need convincing?
