Can women over 50 wear leather leggings? You bet! I found a pair last week that practically jumped into my shopping bag and screamed for me to take them home. I did and I’m thrilled with them.
Leather or faux leather leggings are sleek, chic and a great way to add a modern edge to your look. Their success or failure often depends on what you pair them with so here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Leather leggings are form fitting so they look best when paired with a looser top. Opt for oversized sweaters or tunics which cover your tummy and hips. Loose blazers and tunic length blouses all work well with leggings as do 3/4 length cardigans and coats.
These are faux leather leggings which fit close to the body without looking shrink wrapped. Their back is a heavy stretch ponte knit which molds to your body without being tight. They have a high rise and side zipper so there’s no bulk up front. I went up one size because I opted for petite, which is a slimmer fit.
Head to toe black can look harsh with leather so choose a flattering color on top. Soft textures and feminine details are a great contrast to shiny so pair them with lace, ruffles or fuzzy textures.

Higher heels can be tough to pull off with shiny leather so I opted for suede flats. The black shoes help elongate your leg. Flat boots would work as well but I’d opt for suede over leather. Too much leather in one outfit leans toward hard, which is not a look I gravitate to.
I paired mine with this winter white sweater with pearl embellished cuffs.
Have you tried leather leggings lately?
