If there is one unexpected item in my closet that I absolutely adore, it's my faux leather leggings from Aritzia. Not only are the comfortable and casual, but the price was fairly agreeable to what I was looking for: expensive looking leather pants without a price tag over $200. I paid $115 for mine in Fall 2011 and they have held up really well. They are made of polyurethane (LOL my thesis was on artworks made of polyurethane...). I usually reserve them for weekends, because they aren't exactly "office appropriate".
My favorite items to pair with faux leather pants, or leggings are:
| My favorite oversized cardigan and a belted blouse |
| A girly white blouse - a classic cut with feminine details |
| Add some edge with a graphic tee |
| Have fun with colorblocking and cozy, oversized sweaters |
| When in doubt, just add stripes and your iconic trench |
| Mix the textures of leather, with an open-weave, crocheted material |
