#1 Blouse and Pumps

Puff-sleeved blouses are in style too! Just like faux leggings. And guess what? They go so well together! If you own a high waist pair of leggings, you can go with a cropped blouse like the one I am wearing from H&M. However, practically any blouse with match well with faux leather leggings!

These high waist faux leather leggings from H&M are thick, sturdy and are made very well. Finish your look with a pair of nude pumps and you are ready to go for any occasion.

#2 Cropped Sweater and Sneakers

Most leggings you will find now will be high waist since this trend is in style. So, if you have a pair of those they will look fantastic with a cropped sweater (or any other sweater you own!) and sneakers. Perfect outfit for a coffee run, lunch with friends or an afternoon at a playground with kids. This cute H&M sweater is ideal for fall! This soft, knit sweater with wool content offers mock turtleneck, heavily dropped shoulders, and long sleeves. The polyester content in this sweater is recycled – exactly what I need for my earth-friendly lifestyle!

#3 Oversized Sweater and Ankle Boots

Oversized sweaters are popular nowadays too, but many don’t feel comfortable wearing one because they think they will look sloppy in it. Do not worry! Just style it with a pair of high waist black faux leather leggings and mules (or ankle boots) and your casual look has never been better! This brown striped knitted pullover from Amazon I am wearing is very soft and great quality! It features a turtleneck neck and oversized baggy style. The sweater comes in SO many colors and color combinations.

Here is another oversized affordable sweater option from Amazon for ya! The pastel colored sweater is made of blanket type fuzzy material that feels so good against your skin. You will not want to take it off! It features side slits and a crew neck, and it comes in many colors and color combinations. I ordered a size small but it is pretty baggy and long. I would recommend tucking it in.

Again, what shoes to wear with leggings? As for the shoes, to finalize this casual fall look you can put on a pair of mules (like the leopard ones I am wearing) or ankle boots like these adorable pointy toe Vince Camuto booties that I’ve been obsessed with this fall. These boots are made of faux suede material and are very soft and comfortable – not to mention very flattering!

#4 Tunic and Heels

We all have tunics in our wardrobe, don’t we? They don’t officially go out of style. Especially chic tunics like this one. It’s made out of blouse-type material and has a light silky feel to it. It is classy enough to wear to the office. I have actually worn it to one of the Christmas parties last year. So, any tunic you have in your closet with work well with faux leather leggings. If you have a dress tunic, I would recommend pairing it with heels. If you have a more casual tunic, sneakers would work better.

#5 Cardigan, T-shirt and Ankle Boots

As you can see, you can experiment with your faux leather leggings outfit ideas. For a casual look, a cropped top and cardigan would be a great choice. To compliment this look and bring more fall theme to it, add booties and a wool fedora hat.

#6 Oversized Blazer and heels

Are you a heels or sneakers person? I like the comfort of wearing sneakers, but you just can’t beat the chic and classy look of heels, right?? So, what shoes to wear with leggings you are asking? Well, here is your answer – heels or sneakers 🙂 But seriously, boots, flats and all other shoe styles will be great too.

Long oversized blazer and faux leather leggings is another great leggings outfit idea! You can dress it up with a blouse and heels, or dress it down with a tee and sneakers. The choice is yours! Which one will you go with??

This H&M shawl-collar blazer is made out of woven fabric with side-seam pockets, and gathered, 3/4-length sleeves. It gets its casual look from the lack of fasteners.

#7 Cropped Top, Cardigan and Over-the-knee Boots

Another faux leather leggings outfit inspo features trendy faux leather leggings, over-the-knee-boots, a crop top and a striped draped cardigan kimono. Just grab a Kate Spade bag and you are ready for your date!
