Wearing Leather Leggings

How to wear leather leggings? Carefully. Don't wear them with knee high boots for e.g. - you'll appear more swashbuckling than fashionable. Instead, wear them printed womens leggings with heels or a nice pair of flat pumps.

Pay attention to how they look on your legs when you try them on. Don't buy them if they're anything less than skin-tight. They need to look more like a pair of footless tights than wrinkled stockings.

You're aiming for a leg-enhancing 'sheer' appearance and if they're less than tight, leave them on the hanger. Top tip: horrible but true - make sure they're tight on the leg but not in the crotch area.

During the day, a rock chick type t-shirt or similar apparel will do nicely. For going out, choose something more flowing, like a tunic top or longer, more structured t-shirt. Accessorize to match, paying attention to detail.

You could team your leather leggings with a black boho tunic, a fitted black jacket - something similar to the Pea Coat style - then add in some color with a red clutch bag and matching red costume jewellery.

The point is this: wearing a leather legging ensemble is supposed to create a look that screams trendy, chic - stylish. The correct coordination will do just that.

Aim to look as though your outfit was effortless and donned with ease, not with a lot of hair tearing angst.

Be cool and you'll look just that. Try too hard and ... well ... the good, the bad and the ugly will springs to mind.

Faux Leather Leggings

Faux leather leggings are a great alternative to real leather - and they're usually what you'll find on the shelves in clothing stores.

For one thing - they're washable. You can't just throw leather into a washing machine. You'll probably end up with something that looks like a shammy leather.

They tend to be made from spandex or a similar stretch fabric, with a polyurethane outer coating.

Basically, leather look, shiny leggings. But - the end result is the same. Sleek and sexy, and infinitely easier to care for.
