I’ve been a longtime fan of leather leggings—specifically this pair from Spanx—but it took me a while to figure how to style them. They’re not quite as easy to wear as a pair of jeans.

20 Ways to Style Leather Leggings

1. Leather leggings with knee-high boots.

You already know how I feel about my Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots—and they look amazing with a pair of leather leggings. It makes for a super easy, put-together look.

2. Leather leggings and a classic black turtleneck.

Nothing looks more chic than leather leggings paired with a simple black turtleneck, in my opinion. (Especially if you happen to be spending a weekend in NYC.) Add a hat to dress up the look. I love this one from J.Crew.

3. Leather leggings with an oversize sweater.

The proportions of the looser-fitting sweater and tight pants are perfect, and it’s a flattering look for every body type. I love this cable-knit turtleneck sweater from Amazon.

4. Leather leggings with a camel coat.

Wear your favorite faux leather leggings with a camel coat, trench coat, or blazer (I love this one that I found on Amazon!). A black turtleneck underneath makes the perfect base.

Add smoking slippers to keep it comfy.

5. Leather leggings with faux fur boots.

I wouldn’t have thought the combo of lace-up faux fur boots with moto leggings looked good together, but I tried it last winter on a girls trip to Park City, and I actually think it looks pretty cute!

Here’s a list of my favorite winter boots if you happen to be in the market.

6. Leather leggings with a plaid coat.

There’s something really sophisticated about a plaid blazer coat don’t you think? I like how it dresses up the casual look of a leather legging.

One of my favorite tricks: add a belt to your coat if you feel like it needs a bit of shape.

7. Leather leggings with faux fur.

This gorgeous gray cropped faux fur one in the photo below is perfect. Add a heeled boot and a beanie for the ultimate chic-snow-bunny moment.

For a more casual look, pair leather leggings with your favorite pair of white sneakers and a cashmere sweater. Perfect for running errands or grabbing a bite!
