How To Style Suede Leggings Outfits – Suede leggings are slowly becoming one of the most popular wintertime staple in everyone’s closets. As the chilly winter approaches, it becomes harder to wear skinny jeans in the cold weather. A wonderful alternative is suede leggings which are becoming increasingly popular due to not only their style, but also the comfort and warmth they provide. Granted, they are harder to style than skinny jeans, but modern fashion trends have come a long way to provide a lot of ways to incorporate them into many different outfits.
Suede leggings usually come in various tones and shades of browns and beiges, hence being extremely easy to style with the earthy tones of winter clothing. However recently, more colors are being introduced, ranging from sage green and merlot, and the latest fashion trends provide endless styling opportunities to style the leggings. Paired with the right textures, layering, and accessories, suede leggings can go from casual streetwear to outfits fit for many formal occasions.
What to Wear With Suede Leggings?
Many can struggle to style black leggings not knowing which colors will compliment them or which patterns and textures will work. However, nowadays, the possibilities are endless. Starting from cropped tight fitted sweaters to long ponchos, there is a lot that can go with suede leggings. They can be styled with jackets of different colors, textures, and patterns to either match with the suede leggings or create beautiful contrasts that add a lot of dimension to the outfit. Accessories like knee-high boots, scarves, and furry purses also go very beautifully with suede leggings to carry the winter theme throughout the whole outfit.
Do’s and Don’ts for Styling Suede Leggings
- Do opt for leather or suede pieces to go along with the leggings. They carry the winter vibes throughout your whole outfit and these are two materials that complement the suede leggings the most. So, try to incorporate a leather or suede piece while wearing suede leggings.
- Don’t go for loud colors and crazy prints. Yes, certain prints like plaid leggings of similar colors may go with the suede, but others may not. For example, a neon top with a sequined pattern will not go with the leggings and will look very mismatched with them.
- Do layer them under a dress or a sweater dress. Suede leggings hug your curves and are the perfect addition to wintertime dresses to flatter your body and create a less chunky silhouette, especially when you want to keep warm!
- Don’t just throw on a t-shirt (especially those with graphic designs) over suede leggings and call it a day! T-shirts are casual wear and the only time they work with suede leggings is when they are layered (given that they are plain) under a blazer or coat.
