Winter wardrobe essentials: Leather-look leggings

There’s definitely been a fashion theme on Wiscellaneous this week, so in keeping with that I have one more from Pippa J, who you 1st met in this post.

Have a great weekend, I hope we have some sunshine in Jozi! 🙂


Plain leggings in cotton lycra are a little bit dated, in my opinion. Unless you style them well they can also look a bit ‘mumsy’. If you’re going to wear them this season they need to have a bold print on them, like these ones that SAFashiongirl is wearing, or they need to have some form of texture.

The hottest legging of the season is the leather-look legging.

There are so many option in stores now – Topshop, Zara, Jo Borkett and even Queenspark have at least 4 different styles to choose from. Those are just the stores that I’ve been into, but most have them on offer. I got a pair from Studio W in Woolies a while back.

The great thing about these types of leggings is that the fabric is very thick, which makes them

a.) very warm, and

b.) very forgiving i.e. not revealing any lumps and bumps that us normal people have around the bum area…

…Which means that you can be more adventurous with what you wear on top. For example I would NEVER be seen in a short top worn with normal stretch lycra leggings (other than on the treadmill) as I have a bit of an issue with my bum. But with these leggings it’s easier to take a big dose of ‘get over it’ and to wear a shorter top and show a bit more leg/bum/hip as I know those bits are held ‘in place’, so to speak ;-)

The other bonus about leggings is that wearing them is like wearing track suit pants, they’re that much more comfy than jeans.

However if you feel like this look is a bit racy for you, you can always go with a legging with leather detail, in the form of panels and inserts.

You can really wear anything with this style of leggings. The above images can give you some inspiration…A drapy silk blouse and heels would be a lovely evening option, or a chunky knit jersey and ankle boots on a cold wintery day. They’d also look cute with ballet flats and a slouchy tee. Play with textures and have some fun with them!
