My friend D brought up the leather / pleather legging look the other day, asking if any of us had tried it. I for one am game. However... I think you could go wrong pretty quickly so they need to be done well. Read: classic and not plastic. I probably won't spring for the real deal leather but there are good faux's that aren't to plastic looking so I say why not! I will pair mine with a chunky knit or a cashmere cardi (see here) and some bad ass boots. Or my trusty Converse. Maybe heels. Maybe.
SHOP THE LOOK: the real deal leather
the fab fauxs:
collage top: L & R // collage bottom: L & R
I for one am going to pounce on the Free People version (first one in the faux list)
