Here are a few ways to wear these bottoms.

Pair the Leggings with a Basic Top

Pair your leggings with a basic top, like a henley. I think that a fitted top can work for Curves given the right fit. Wearing a basic top brings down the edginess of these bottoms. Also, it lets folks know that you aren’t headed to the club!

Leather and Some Layers

Add some layers to your leggings If you’re wanting more coverage. I wore a thin sweater, a knit blazer, and a scarf. The contrast textures not only look good but keep you warm.

Throw on a Chunky Sweater

A chunky sweater can balance out the fitted silhouette of these bottoms. I’ve had the same pair of faux leather leggings for awhile now. I pull mine out every winter and wear them at least a few times. For instance, I wore it go to a flea market in Pasadena a while back.

Additionally, you can pair your faux leather leggings with a cozy cardigan. That’s what I did when I first started blogging in 2016 here .

The Feeling Factor

The Intersection Between Style & Psychology

Edgy and unapologetic. Wearing a pair of faux leather leggings says “I’m here and I’m sure you noticed!” without worrying about opinions. The same energy that wearing bold prints and vivid colors exude. Therefore, wear if you are in that mood OR if you want to get a little boost of edginess.
