Leather Legs

I'm posing a question to you ladies..are leather leggings/pants a do or don't? I like, but don't know if they are for me. I'm gonna be real, my thighs aren't my best feature, and I feel like putting leather on them wouldn't exactly be the most flattering







Recently, Katie Holmes rocked some to a business meeting

And Gwynie wore them just last week to a book signing

So is this a do, don't, or celeb style only? And if have rocked them, let me know!

  1. I like the super skinny version, but you are right, I think you have to have chicken legs to pull them off. Love them on Mary-Kate, Olivia, and Christine.

  2. I kinda like them...but i think they need to show like they aren't painted on...like the Olsen ones, i like those....agreed, no tin love with my thighs.

  3. I have a pair of faux leather leggings that look really nice when paired with a flowy feminine top and heals...I like the juxtiposition of textures and styles. I really think it's all about the cut of the pants/leggings and the styling.

  7. I think you need to be super thin to wear leather leggings well. I have a good alternative for those who don't have twig legs. J Brand's Venom waxed jeans (the ones Sandra Bullock rocked at a kids award show last year, where she dances with Betty White onstage). They look like leather and the cut is super flattering.
