Winter weapon – leather legs for any budget

It is no secret that my winter weapon is encasing my legs in leather (prompting the husband to say ‘sausages’ every time he looks at my thighs – I think he means it in the sweetest possible way…  I mean, who doesn’t like sausages?  I love them).  So I thought I would share a few of my favourite places to hunt them down, from the budget friendly to the blow the budget options…

I live in this pair from Boden and think they are very special indeed but sadly they did not sell the same style this season so here is my round up of the best of the rest.  The Outnet is a great place to pick up leather (or anything for that matter) for less – here is their selection of leather leggings and trousers – when it comes to leather, designer is a safe bet for quality and fit.  Reiss would absolutely be my next stop as I always rely on them for having a truly superior high end high street offering and they have some amazing colours on sale right now.  But if all this is leaving you looking at your bank card and sweating then this Next pair will sort you right out (granted they’re pleather but honestly the best fitting realistic pair I have found and, to that end, in fact the only pleather I own and that includes shoes and handbags, I am a real stickler but broke the rules for these).

So here are my sausages, yet again, but this time under a skirt and with the best mustard jumper known to man (I think I have almost all of them) which happens to be on sale if you are also partial to mustard with your sausages.  Sorry not sorry.

And if you still are not convinced here are some further leather leg snapshots – under a dress, simple and kinda casual, the cheapies from Next and even when pregnant (which seems like SO long ago now)…

    I wish I could pull off leather leggings – you look great in yours! šŸ™‚ I wouldn’t get a chance to wear them often anyway with the milder winters we have here – it doesn’t even snow. Love the way you’ve added colour to this outfit too with the skirt and mustard jumper. šŸ™‚

    Hope that you are having a good week so far! I’ve returned to work this week which was a bit of a shock after a month off over Christmas, ha!

    Great look and guide to leather leggings. Like you, Iā€™m a stickler for the real thing – Iā€™d rather have fewer real ones than every colour in faux! Your use of colour in the look is excellent – the key piece for me being the multi-coloured skirt that ties the mustard and black together beautifully. Great job! Nx
