Love Your Leather Leggings

Leather leggings are about the hottest trend since the peter pan collar. If leather seems outside your comfort zone, don't worry. There are many ways to refine this look without living on the edge, and a motorcycle is not necessary, though encouraged.

Balance the edginess of the leather look by incorporating traditional stripes. Stripes are not only a timeless classic, but a hot commodity for spring as well. Keep the look grounded with suede booties in a neutral color and add a touch of whimsy with a gold necklace accented with a friendly amphibian and a polka dotted cross body bag. 

Bring sweetness to your tough outfit by wearing a printed button-up in a darling teacup print, fit for brunch with the queen. Add a splash of color with modern, geometric earrings and a wrist full of bangles. Polish the look with a fitted blazer in a bold color and silver flats.

I recently wore my leather leggings for a night out to a concert. I wanted to keep the focus on the visible hardware and zipper back detailing of my dress, so I kept the rest of my ensemble sleek and monochromatic, finishing off with a sparkly opera-length necklace, colorful bracelet and the most comfortable high heels this side of the Mississippi.
