Before we get started on cute outfit ideas, let’s chat about which faux-leather leggings you should get.

Spanx

All of the outfits below are shown wearing Spanx faux leather leggings. I’ve had mine for years and LOVE them. They have the perfect amount of compression, don’t roll down at the waist and are well loved by so many people. There’s a reason they have a cult following! 😉

Spanx leggings are definitely an investment piece so keep that in mind when purchasing them. They often go on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which I cover!) so watch for sales on these!

Commando

Other faux leather leggings that get great reviews and that I own are commando leggings. These are another great option for leather leggings. They’re structured a bit more like a pant rather than a legging.

American Eagle

If spending a lot of money on leather leggings isn’t your jam, I tried out American Eagle‘s! And while they definitely don’t have the seamless look of Spanx (these are a crackle style), they are comfortable and fit well.

And the price points will make your wallet happy!

Amazon

Lastly, if you’re looking for an inexpensive pair to try out, these classic faux leather leggings from Amazon get over 4,000 reviews! Plus you get that Prime free shipping!

12 Faux Leather Leggings Outfits for Fall/Winter

Hopefully this will be a starting point for your own outfit and give you some inspiration as you look in your closet to make them work with your personal style (or just feel free to copy the below exactly!).

1. A Tunic Top Is My Go To Leather Leggings Outfit

A long shirt is a great option for faux leather leggings since it covers your butt! A thicker, cozier tunic sweater is a great option for cold days or a lighter weight tunic top like the one I’m wearing is a great idea for fall.

Frequently Asked Questions

What tops do I wear with faux leather leggings?

I like to wear longer shirts with my faux leather leggings, so they cover most of my butt. It helps them look less like leggings and more like real pants. Tunic tops, oversized sweaters, or even layered shirts work well.

If your shirt is a little short, you can pair it with a longer cardigan or jacket.

How do you style faux leather leggings for a night out?

The simplest way to take your faux leather leggings out on the town is to wear heels or a sparkly top! If that’s not possible because it’s too cold out, an oversized sweater and over the knee boots or a leather-on-leather look will do the trick. And don’t forget to dress up the jewelry!

Can you wear faux leather leggings in the summer?

Yes! I wear my faux leather leggings the most in the cooler months, but they’re comfortable and breathable enough to wear during the summer. 

During the summer, you can wear short-sleeve or sleeveless tunic tops, tank tops with a flannel or denim shirt tied around your waist, or just a fun graphic tee. 

Is it appropriate to wear leather leggings to the office?

The answer depends on how formal your office dress code is. If your office requires business attire, I wouldn’t attempt to wear any type of leggings unless they’re under a sweater dress or something similar. 

But for more relaxed, casual work environments, faux leather leggings (with your butt covered) are probably fine! They’re dressier than regular leggings, after all. 

Dress up your leather leggings for work with a solid or plaid blazer or a nice blouse and cardigan.

What patterns go with faux leather leggings?

Plaid is the obvious choice, but camo and leopard prints look great with faux leather leggings. If you’re worried a print is too busy or too much, layer it under another shirt, so just a bit is peeking out on the bottom and edges.
