Outfit #1: This is a "classy chic" way to wear faux-leather (or real leather, if sweating down your legs all day is your cup of joe... no judgements here...) while still having that slight badass edge. I love love love the coat, and the oxblood colour gives a great dimension to the otherwise black and white look. Meanwhile, the embellishment on the top keeps the outfit looking special, even when the coat is taken off. So many things I love going on in this outfit!
Outfit #2: Obviously this is a more casual way to wear the leggings, with a fun slogan tee and wedge sneakers (that I already have!). The faux-leather leggings keep it from being "too" casual, as they add a little something extra that regular cotton leggings don't have. So perhaps we can call this one "sporty-chic"? I think the Phillip Lim bucket bag alone brings the "chic" to that title!
Outfit #3: This one is a more "cool chic" outfit. Notice how I'm describing all of these with adjective+chic? It's the pants, I swear. They help transition the first adjective into being chic as well. They might be magical. Anyway, I love this one, as it has a preppier sweater on top, while keeping it pretty badass on the bottom with the leggings and moto boots. And red lipstick. And cat-eye sunnies.
Now, I have yet to actually buy a pair of these leggings. I'd like to try a few of the pairs Aritzia has to offer, especially the Daria leggings, but they cost a bit more money than I have available in my clothing budget at the moment. Also, I really need to try them on in-store, and I haven't really been in the "Mall Mood" lately. So, once I have a spare $135 to spend, it just might be on faux-leather leggings... I can't believe I just wrote that.
