After years of looking and indecisiveness, I finally did it. I bought my first pair of leather leggings! Well sort of leather. I have wanted a pair for a couple years because they look super chic. I love how they dress up an outfit for winter. I was hesitant because 1) I have watched that Friends episode where Ross wears leather pants one too many times and 2) they seem uncomfortable and not super forgiving. I was intrigued by these leggings because they are not actually leather or that super thin faux leather, but rather a scuba type material. I also liked that they have a more matte look versus the super shiny you see in some pairs. I tried them on 100% expecting to hate them. These leggings are actually really comfortable and fit like my normal comfy cotton and gym leggings. They are soft on the inside too. I imagined it would be sticky and uncomfortable, and would make loud swishing sounds when I walked, but it didn’t! I personally think the scuba material is a little bit more forgiving than thinner leggings, but I would still only wear tunics or long sweaters with these.
Before I purchased I also checked the washing instructions, because I had no idea how to wash something like this. The directions say to turn inside out and machine wash on gentle, lay flat to dry, and do not dry clean. Those directions work perfect for me, as that is generally how I wash many of my clothes. I haven’t officially worn them out yet, but I did lounge a bit around my house in them after taking these photos. 🙂 I told you they are comfortable. I absolutely love them paired with this red sweater. It is going to be that perfect semi-casual holiday party or happy hour outfit. This sweater has 3/4 length sleeves which is perfect for Texas winter, because we tend to overcompensate sometimes with our heaters once the temps dip below 50. I usually end up pushing my sleeves anyway at friends’ houses, so I like that the sleeves are shorter. This sweater comes in multiple colors too! Happy Monday Ya’ll and thanks for stopping by today!
