There are so many ways that leather leggings can go wrong; too revealing, too tight, they won’t stay up, wrong top pairing. The list goes on. So when I went for a pair of leather leggings when I was browsing Joyce’s Closet, I shocked myself – never did I think I would have a pair hanging in my closet, let alone actually wearing them in public.
Joyce’s Closet is an amazing consignment shop where you can get the brand names you love but for a reasonable price. I was drawn to all of the Artizia pieces of course, but she carries all sorts of brands, styles and price points. The leather leggings from Artizia seemed doable since I didn’t have to pay full price for them.
I paired the leggings with an extra long button up shirt – leather leggings don’t do your butt any favours so cover that shit up. A Danier leather clutch and my white Air Max’s (not from Joyce’s) kept the outfit casual, but if you wanted to wear it to work or out to dinner a pair of black pumps would fancy it up. A chic blazer or trench coat could also be worn to finish off the outfit, but since it’s still summer leather leggings are hot enough.
If you haven’t checked out Joyce’s Closet, you need to ASAP. She is a local consigner who has an amazing collection of lightly pre-worn clothes. Like I said, her Aritzia selection is to die for. She will ship it to you if you don’t want to make the trek up to the North to pick it up! The whole outfit except the Nike’s are from her shop.
