“It all started with a pair of pantyhose, some scissors and a bright idea.” -Sara Blakely, Spanx founder.
Blakey’s breakthrough came in 1998. Fast forward to the present, and Vintage Charm is proud to carry some of Spanx’s top-selling leggings this fall and winter season. They are so comfortable and with their high-waisted design, so supportive. Spanx’s motto, where the slim is built in, says it all. Our top-pick and must-have pair is the black faux leather leggings. We believe these are the most versatile leggings out in the market. They can take you from day to night, work to play, and back again. How do you style them? Vintage Charm has all the answers and how to wear them for 3 very different occasions.
First, let’s start with a casual look. You can’t go wrong with a pair of great leggings and a cozy sweater. We always like a little extra length in our sweaters when pairing with leggings to give us that extra coverage in the front and back. Add flat boots or sneakers, and there you go, you achieved a cute, casual and, most importantly, comfortable look.
What’s another way you can wear these leather leggings? To work! Yes, that’s right. You can wear leggings to work if you style them correctly. We recommend pairing them with a blazer, such as our menswear-inspired long jacket, with a neutral button-up blouse. The blazer provides an office appropriate length and shape, and a blouse that is isn’t too form fitting complements the leggings and achieves a look that is both trendy and in accordance to your company’s dress code. Complete the look with mid-height booties or ballet flats.
A third way you can style your faux leather leggings is for an evening out. This look is easy. All you need is a printed top or a stand out jacket. And what says night on the town more than a faux fur leopard bomber jacket. Leather and leopard have always gone hand-in hand-in our book. Don't be scared to wear bold pieces to break up a monotone look. Don’t forget to accessorize. We recommend statement earrings and a fabulous clutch.
