19 Faux Leather Leggings Outfits to Copy Now for 2023

Have you been on the fence about faux leather leggings? I’ve had a pair of faux leather leggings for about five years now. I’ve found them to be versatile and easy to style. They can easily be part of your everyday wear. There is no limit to ideas on what to wear with faux leather leggings.

They are a fashion trend that just gets stronger and stronger. Skinny jeans might be on the way out but faux leather leggings are in. You can sub a pair of faux leather leggings for the bottoms in many of your skinny jeans outfits.

Go ahead and get yourself a pair. Here are 19 outfit ideas to help you style them in different ways for different occasions.

Both black and chocolate brown leggings are styled. Scroll all the way down for the brown outfits.

You can splurge for spanx leggings if you like, but I enjoy the more affordable options I own a lot more. Spanx are great leggings and are loved by many.

However, the best faux leather leggings are the ones you are comfortable in and will actually wear. When I tried the Spanx leggings, I found them to be too tight for my liking. I own a pair by Hue that has great compression, nice stretch, and a comfortable fit.

My very first pair of faux leather leggings was a nod to the trend with a faux panel leather front and regular knit in the back. Later I upgraded to the Hue full faux leather leggings. Don’t be afraid to look for modifications that work for you and your comfort level.

I also added the social media famous $15 Walmart faux leather leggings to my closet this past fall. They are a great product for the price and not as thick or hot as my Hue leggings. The thinner Walmart leggings are better suited for our mild climate.
