How to Wear Faux Leather Leggings in 2021

With 2020 (finally!) behind us, many fashionistas are meticulously planning their 2021 wardrobes. The year ahead is uncertain, and it’s not yet clear whether we’ll be partying with friends or spending more quiet nights in as the warmer months approach.

One thing is for sure, however. This year we’ll be glamming up the comfort-wear that helped us survive 2020. While we certainly learned some important lessons about our wardrobes as a result of quarantine measures – namely, that it is not always worth swapping comfort and practicality for jaw-dropping style – this year many of us are eager to spice up our everyday outfits and reignite our love of fashion.

So, where to start? At YUCO, we recommend easing yourself back into the world of fashion with a hugely popular 2021 fashion trend: faux leather leggings. This simple fashion item is equal parts comfortable and flattering, a magical combination allowing wearers to enjoy the convenience of loungewear while looking night-club-ready at all times.

The best thing about leather leggings is that they can be dressed up or down and worn for almost any occasion. To help you find the perfect pair and create gorgeous new outfits, therefore, we’ve put together a quick guide to wearing faux leather leggings in 2021.  


Where to purchase the best faux leather leggings 

The first thing to remember when picking out a pair of faux leather leggings is that quality should always come first. YUCO’s black high-rise liquid leggings are some of the strongest leather-look leggings on the market thanks to their premium fabric. They are squat-proof and breathable, ensuring you can wear them on the treadmill, sofa, or dance floor! If that weren’t enough, they are scandalously affordable and feature a special hidden waistband pocket to store keys or bank cards.

Why not invest in both colors to suit the mood and occasion? 


Styling your leggings

Faux leather leggings are very versatile, so there are many, many ways you can use them to create stunning outfits. However, there are a few guiding principles you may want to follow to ensure your ensembles never fail to look fabulous. These include: 

-         Layer up: Leggings are a fantastic base on which to layer plenty of long tops, cozy sweaters and chic coats.

-         Try to balance out textures: Glossy leggings look great when contrasted with fuzzy sweaters, suede shoes, or tweed jackets.

-         Find a pair of killer shoes: Faux leather leggings ooze edgy style and sultriness, so don’t dilute your look with a pair of dull shoes. Think chunky heeled boots, a pair of snazzy branded sneakers, or sleek patent heels.  

Of course, feel free to bend these guidelines slightly if you’re experimenting with your 2021 looks. Rules were made to be broken, after all!
