Faux Leather Leggings on the High Street

Shopping for Faux Leather Leggings? The pair showcased in my photos is from the Topshop Tall collection, but fear not! I’ve rounded up some high street options below that offer the perfect balance of style without too much shine. And for those seeking extra support, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings with a contoured waistband come highly recommended.

Styling with the Essentials T Shirt

Every capsule wardrobe needs black and white Essentials T Shirts. They form the foundation for any date night outfit. As shown below, they can be styled with a twist, knot, layered or simply thrown on to create endless day-to-night looks. I highly recommend investing in a good-quality modal or ‘slinky fit’ T shirt that can remain a staple for years to come. Cotton versions often lack the versatility and flattering fit needed for styling.

Day Date to Date Night Outfits

Faux leather leggings are the ultimate wardrobe essential for city dates, offering comfort during the day and the option to elevate your look with a pair of heels for the perfect date night outfit. Simply pack them in a small backpack, and you’re ready to exude style and sophistication wherever the day takes you.

In the examples featured below, the simplicity of two basic tops opens up the perfect opportunity to let your favourite accessories shine. Coordinate your shoes with your bag and top, or add a splash of colour with a silk scarf for a vibrant touch, especially during the summer season. Alternatively, embrace the cooler weather with a contrasting wool coat paired with knee-high boots for a cosy yet stylish look. (See faux leather leggings styled for winter).

From Office to Evening: Styling Faux Leather Leggings for Date Night

Transitioning from work to date night with faux leather leggings is a breeze, especially when paired with versatile shirts. For the office, opt for a longline shirt to provide coverage and a professional look. Then, when it’s time to head out, transform your outfit by wrapping the shirt to accentuate your curves.

Faux Leather Leggings Faux Pas

Let’s talk about knickers! When it comes to faux leather leggings, the last thing you want is a visible panty line ruining your look. I made the mistake of thinking a tiny string thong would do the trick, but I was left showing lumps and bumps in the wrong places! LOL

After some searching, I can confidently vouch for John Lewis’ seamless undies, as showcased below. While many brands offer similar options, just ensure they’re comfy, without any pinching elastic, for a flawless look in your leggings.
