As promised in this post, I’m following up with a more detailed review of these faux suede leggings. Part of my promise to you was that when I feature items over $100, I will show multiple ways that you can wear them…thereby increasing their versatility & lowering the cost per wear. The great part is that all of these looks can be applied to leggings across the board – so if you aren’t in love with this particular pair, but have solid black leggings in your closet that you need inspiration for, give these layering ideas a try!
When it comes to leggings, I personally feel the most comfortable when my backside is mostly covered. I think with this particular pair, you could probably get away with a shorter top (because the fabric is thicker & they look more like skinny pants), but it comes down to personal preference & where you plan on wearing the outfit.
I have now worn the leggings multiple times and washed them once – I followed the care instructions on the tag & washed them in cold on the delicate cycle & line dried them. There was no shrinking to the width or length and the softness of the faux suede fabric remained in tact. I also didn’t find that they lost their shape with wear & movement, which is always my concern with leggings. However, if you’re unsure on the sizing, I would suggest going down to allow for a bit of stretching over time.
Here are 6 different looks I put together using these leggings as the base garment – I did my best to show an equal mix of casual & dressier looks and I featured at least two layers in each outfit (without using outerwear). I also included 3 additional pairing ideas in the collage below. I’d love to hear if you’d like to see more posts like this in the future – I hope this is helpful!!
