We get it—putting together an outfit is tough right now. Luckily, having a pair of faux-leather leggings in your arsenal will make that process a whole lot easier. Just like your trusty leather moto jacket or favorite oversized blazer, leather leggings are a true winter wardrobe essential, one that absolutely everyone needs.
Every time the seasons change, it seems like a slew of leather pieces come out in full force—and it looks like leggings are this season’s trendiest new addition. Faux-leather leggings are a game-changer because they’re the perfect midpoint between the comfy loungewear you’ve been living in and actual pants. Why deal with buttons and zippers when you don’t have to?
A pair of faux-leather leggings look so much more luxurious than your usual jeans-and-a-nice-top going-out outfit, but they can also totally be worn during the daytime, too. Pair them with a trendy sweater vest and your go-to fresh white sneakers for the perfect weekend brunch outfit. Or, dress them up with sky-high stilettos and a bodysuit to give your faux-leather leggings an entirely new vibe for date night.
Real-leather leggings have been spotted on celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Palermo over the past few months, so it’s safe to say that this look is having a major moment right now, and will continue to be huge throughout fall and winter. Tons of brands like Topshop and All Worthy (model Hunter McGrady’s new size-inclusive line) have affordable, vegan leather options to choose from, so it’s easy to find a pair and copy that celeb look without breaking the bank.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best leather leggings to try, from shiny to matte, affordable to splurge-worthy. You officially have no reason not to buy a pair.
