Last winter, I wore my leather leggings non stop. But after the last six months of warm weather, I had completely forgotten about them until I unearthed them during our move.

During the cooler months, they’re such a versatile and fun pair of pants. I’m teaming up with Nordstrom today to share two ways to wear leather leggings — dressed up, and dressed down. I’m wearing these leather-look leggings and they’re a perfect pair that doesn’t look too “leather-y,” they suck everything in, and they’re really, really comfortable.

To dress them down, I went with a comfortable look — a white tee, a cozy cardigan, and a pair of sneakers. I’ve been wearing this cardigan non-stop (our new house has air conditioning, so I actually can wear it without dying!), and this is one of the best white tee’s ever.

To dress the leather leggings up, I paired them with an oversized plaid top, sleek black stilettos, and a low messy bun. Such an easy festive outfit that looks super chic and just a little bit edgy.
