Last year i invested in a great pair of coated skinny jeans and pretty much lived in them year round, i just love the edginess they bring to the outfit that skinny jeans just don't do. So this year i stepped up on the faux leather front and tried these faux leather leggings. To be honest,it took some courage for me to walk out in them as i felt more than a little self conscious because they show off, uh... everything. But they got a big thumbs up from the hubs so if anything they are husband pleasers, haha!
Wearing them reminded me of when Sandy rocks up in her lycra at the end of Grease, they made me feel like i wanted to break out in song,lol!
Couple of note worthy points for wearing faux leather leggings:
- They show off every curve. Beware that you will feel slightly naked on your bottom half, they are very figure hugging, but because they are thicker than a normal fabric legging they can be quite flattering(ie they hide cellulite well;)
- If trying for the first time wear a long top or tunic. I wish mine was longer at the front, i think i would have felt more comfortable. I was happy with the low part at the back of my blouse as it covered my (more than) ample booty, but longer both back and front would be a great place to start with faux leather leggings.
- Try on before you buy. I thought i may have to size up, but no not the case. infact you don't want them to be baggy and saggy. Tight is actually right in this case. I actually tried on a great pair in New Look that were faux leather on the front and fabric on the back. These would be a great and comfy way to try the trend. I tried these on and they were actually really really nice on. I wish i had bought them but at the time I was feeling super daring and wanted to go the full faux lather hog.
- One word.. camel toe. Avoid at all costs.. (i'm actually giggling whilst writing this, jeez, i'm such a child) due to the form fitting, clingy nature of the fabric, beware ;)
And that's it! So what are your thoughts on faux-leather leggings? Love or Loathe? Try or pass by? I am actually going to try them again but with an oversized big wooly knitted jumper. I quite like the idea of the textures together, plus a bit more covered up.
