How to Wear Pleather

I bought these amazing {& expensive} Armani pleather leggings back in 2010 & I love the fact that they are still relevant in the fashion world.  These were a closet piece I wanted to invest in because I hate leggings that look cheap & you can see through & they totally ended up paying for themselves.

I am always looking for new ways to wear them. Living in Florida it’s difficult because they are thick & pretty warm, so it’s definitely not an article I wear more than 2 times a year. I am wearing them to my bestie’s dinner tomorrow night at Mise En Place.

Here is how I came up with my look. I have been hard-core crushing on off-the-shoulder shirts so found a super cute white one on Amazon {I know I have an obsession with white, I know!} for $13- SOLD! I wanted a shirt that was long enough to cover my hoo-ha because sometimes with the pleather it can be quite revealing {please keep that in mind when styling this look}.  Black & white can be very plain, I love it though because you can add some fun to it, so I am adding my Jessica Simpson gold/silver baylage pumps to dress it up! I will of course post the pic below here once I wear it. Not sure on the jewls yet, but you will see!

UPDATE ON THIS OUTFIT: while it was super cute the shirt that I got from Amazon was too big & needed to be shrunk. I did not realize this until Thursday night, the night before the dinner. Luckily on Friday after work my friend from NJ agreed to go shopping with me & I found the most amazingly perfect kick ass, suede fringe duster for $15 on clearance. Omigah! No questions, bought right away. I brought her home & tried her on with my favorite black JLo tee, the leggings & the original shoes I planned on wearing & it was a winner. I loved it & so did everyone else. I was specifically fond of it because I get so excited having last minute outfits that just rock! It’s a great feeling.  {P.S. I did shrink the OTS shit & am planning on wearing to my friend’s party on Saturday…. Wow I party a lot}.

I never really thought too much about dressing them down but I am swooning over some of the looks I found on Pinterest.

A chunky sweater, heels & a sweet necklace

Dress them way down with a tee, jean jacket & booties.

Or a long dressy tee with sneaks (love this look!)
