A Question For You: Leather Leggings?

Question, Leather Leggings on

Would you, could you, do you?

Like, love, wish for, or wear leather leggings.

I have – I was such a fan of the J.Crew legging – some years ago and I’m considering whether they should make a reappearance in my wardrobe.

First decisions first, would we wear them? If we decide they are a go then what about the style? And finally, do we wear the real thing or stick with the faux?

Let’s presume we will wear them because I believe we can if we do it right.

That means making sure the associated pieces are the right ones. Fancy needs to be farewelled when wearing leather leggings, and the simple welcomed home. A beautiful sweater, an oversized shirt, and a well-tailored coat spring to mind. The turtleneck with room to move, a pair of leggings and a midi coat with space to wrap up in would work. I’m thinking sneakers and trainers for footwear but an ankle boot would equally look fabulous. I will be avoiding a heel with the leggings and they will be worn strictly in the daywear category.

As for the cropped style trousers, the flared pant and the palazzo style I’m drawing time out. Call me dull but these aren’t for me. Leather skinny jeans? Maybe but for now I will stay focused on leggings.

What made me think about leather leggings?

Other than every fashion website having a million pairs was my darling neighbour. She arrived the other day wearing a pair of leather leggings and looked fantastic. I had forgotten them and what a good piece they are in my overzealousness for the track pant.

Worn well, they are a great addition. xv
