Black Top With Gray Plaid Blazer

All black looks are go to outfit with black faux leather leggings. But what if you could take it to the next level by adding some pattern with a plaid blazer. The color palette still remains the same in blacks and grays. But the outfit looks much more interesting. 

A longer blazer will help cover your bottoms in the back, so you don’t need to wear a longer top in this outfit. 

Add a contrast belt on top of the blazer to create a waist definition and style. 

This would be a great work outfit for you.

When it’s chilly, you probably don’t want to step out of the house in a cold jeans. But what to wear so you don’t look over the top or also don’t feel like you are wearing loungewear. 

Grab an oversized quilted jacket and your favorite pair of white sneakers. Now, I prefer white leather sneakers, but you can also pick an athletic white leather sneakers for running errands. 

For your top, you can wear any style of sweatshirt as long as it goes well with the leggings or the quilted jacket. That is why sometimes gray is a great shade, but you can also go for tan or green.

A classy and timeless outfit you can create with black faux leather leggings are to add a white shirt and trench coat to it. Pair it with plaid cashmere scarf to create a chic and sophisticated outfit. 

I also love that adding black ankle boots with some heels will make your legs look taller. 

This is such a classy way you can look polished and leaner when you have multiple layers on. And the trench coat does not have to be tan.

Belted Shirt Jacket And Tall Boots

In this outfit, a lightweight cotton blend turtleneck would work really well that is fitted since you are wearing this outfit as is. The fitted sweater will keep everything looking structured and the neckline showing through the jacket makes this outfit so luxe.

Shirt jackets are a great alternative to denim jacket which look more structured but they are even more comfortable to wear. But if you want to make the outfit look sophisticated, then add a contrasting belt and you will easily see how your outfit transforms. 

The suede boots have a different texture to leather leggings, so they look different and not camouflage with the black color of the leggings. 

You can wear this anywhere, you are going to be outside like pumpkin patches or heading to outdoor fairs where you need an extra layer and don’t need to take it out. You go on a casual night out or head for a road trip

Striped Top, Coatigan with White Leather Sneakers

Striped full sleeve top or sweater is the perfect contrast to the black leather leggings. It looks classic and perfect casual top for winter.

The coatigan is long so it balances the fit of the legging and looks put together and modest.

White leather sneakers instantly elavates this outfit. It brightens up the legging look and the outfit looks so put together.

This outfit looks so effortless, but because of the color combination, it looks classy too. And you can recreate this look with any color combo.

Long Blazer, Cashmere Scarf and Tall Boots

Blazers that are longer or you can say coats that are shorter and have collar detail like blazers are perfect to wear over leggings. They show a little bit of the leggings but still cover most of your body. 

Hanging the scarf around your neck instead of wrapping will give the scarf the perfect length to wear and cover front area of a scarf. This way you can wear a shirt or any other style of top and not have to worry about the length.

Tan boots can elevate your leggings outfit. They looks more sophisticated and rich in cooler months. I love this one from Same Edelman that has pointed front, so it elongates my legs too.

Belted cardigans that fall right below your butt are also a great layering or top to pair with black faux leather leggings. 

These cardigans are an updated version of button load cardigans that used to be straight fit and just basic. With the belt detail your outfit instantly looks chic and feminine even if you are wearing combat boots with them. 

This is a way I love wearing any fitted bottoms. And you dont need to wear combat boots always, you can try other polished footwear like loafers, slingback pumps to create a sophisticated outfit.
