FM40 Style - Leather leggings continued....


 
My Next leather leggings I believe are now on a 10 week delay, when I ordered them they were on a 7 week delay, but I received them the following week, so don't be put off with the delay ..... you may be lucky like me and receive them pretty quickly.
 
Following on from yesterday's post, I thought I would give you some age appropriate, classic and chic styling ideas..... I hope you think so, anyway.
 
Here is Mrs. Beckham and Ms. Palermo wearing theirs,
 

Some other styling I like from Pinterest and Net-a-Porter
 
 
My styling ideas -
 
Below is very similar to how I wore them the other evening. However, this jumper is the tunic length, perfect for covering your bum, if you feel self-conscious showing it covered in tight leather....... The shoes .......Love them, plus there is 20% off new stock at LK Bennett at the moment.
 
 
I think they always look fabulous with a tuxedo and stilettos and that is how Mrs. Beckham normally wears hers. The fabulous Accessorize clutch here giving this monochrome outfit a pop of colour.
 
 
As I said they can be worn day and night and this look is a totally dressed down look for the day.
 

I hope I have given you some further inspiration for styling leather leggings for mums like us in our 40s!

  2. i have now added a few more items to my wish list. love the Uniqlo tunic and the hush shirt and cardi. can see myself getting a lot of wear out of all of those. i ordered the leggings last night and have a 3 to 4 week delay, must admit ordered 2 different sizes and lengths as i want them to work with both heels and flats so will see how they look, also heard they can come up a bit small hence 2 sizes ordered. some lovely styling ideas there Annmarie. x

    1. Yes I ordered a 10 & 12 due to the reviews but the 10 were fine. Sorry to Add to your wish list, but I agree you will get a lot of wear out of those items. Good luck with the leggings. X

I love all the ways you have styled them here and shall be stealing a few of these looks!! xx p.s I did need to size up in the H&M ones!

  5. Lovely styling Annmarie. I managed to buy a pair of Baukjen's leather leggings in the summer sale. I was a little hesitant at first and even though I haven't worn them as yet, I'm glad I took a leap of faith and bought them. I love the simple styling with the grey tunic and those LKB SHOES! *Sigh* always the shoes with me x

  7. I love my faux leather Zara pants. I feel to large to do the skinny leather look. Lovely picks here Annmarie. H xx

  8. Gorgeous styling! I think they look great dressed down with a huge cardi & flats! Ax

  9. Love the styling with the Hush cocoon cardi. Btw, a bit off-piste here, but I am searching for the perfect camel coat for winter and read your blog on the House of Fraser Cloud Nine one with interest. Have tried one already from Baujken but it was skimpy on width - which meant when the coat was belted, it wasn't wrapped far across the body enough (is that clear as mud, or do you see what I mean!) How does the Cloud Nine one fare on this front? I am very tempted...

  10. Seriously Annemarie you have impeccable taste! Love the outfits you have put together, I need your Next leggings and that fab uniqlo tunic, would be an really useful piece in my wardrobe! Xxx

  12. I like the look of the leggings but can't get my head around whether it would be like wearing plastic, are they breathable?

  13. These are such a great look for you, Annmarie. I, on the other hand, would look ridiculous in them! Love how you've styled them. Lynne x

  14. Loved seeing how you'd style them, especially the cashmere tunic! I'm not sure I'm brave enough but have just ordered some black coated jeans! Need to drop a few pounds :-) :-) xx
