When it comes to styling, a lot of people pay most of the attention to the hairstyles, the tops, the dresses, etc., but they don’t know how the leggings can make a huge difference. Leggings can sometimes go with a skirt or shorts, while nowadays they can also play a big part if you wear them almost like you’re wearing pants. In this blog post I’m going to talk about a very special, stylish type of leggings: the leather gaiters. I’m going to introduce you to some of the best ways to style it to spice up your outfits.
Wear with a leather jacket and long t-shirt
I start the list with the classic outfit, pairing a black leather jacket, long white t-shirt with leather leggings and boots. This is the typical tough girl outfit that you might want to try every now and then to look dark and cool.
Wear it with a denim vest and white tank top
If you like a toned down version of the tough girl look, you can pair a denim vest and a long white tank top with leather leggings and white sneakers.
Wear a longline jacket with leather gaiters
Not interested in the tough girl style? No problem. For a casual street look, you can combine the leather gaiters with a long T-shirt and a longline jacket. This will make a good outfit for fall and winter.
Wear with cold shoulder sweater dress
For a very beautiful and feminine autumn look, you can wear a cold shoulder sweater dress with leather gaiters and boots. While other types of black leggings work well with this outfit, the leather leggings can add character to the style that sets you apart from the rest.
Wear with a cold shoulder blouse
For a refreshing and stylish spring look, a cold shoulder blouse is the perfect piece of clothing with leather gaiters.
Wear it with a white dress and leather jacket
Many of you may have white clothes in your closet. It is true that you can usually only wear them with a nice pair of shoes and look great in the summer. However, if you want to try something a little more creative and add character to it, you can turn it into a fall outfit by pairing it with a black leather jacket, leather gaiters and boots. Not only is the outfit stylish and beautiful, this technique of combining a dress with a short black jacket will make you look slimmer and taller.
Wear with leather skirt
Another way to play with layers is to pair a leather skirt with the leather gaiters. The combination of skirt and typical black leggings usually results in a feminine look. However, if you replace the typical leggings with leather leggings, you immediately get a more edgy look.
Wear a boyfriend shirt with leather gaiters
Boyfriend shirt is such a big part of the stylish and casual boyfriend fashion trend. In a previous blog post about the best ways to wear boyfriend shirts, I mentioned a lot of great outfit ideas for pairing with jean shorts and jeans. I also mentioned that a more creative and stylish way to wear them is to pair them with leather leggings. As you can see in the picture above, an iconic red and black checked boyfriend shirt and leather leggings make for a really minimalist and stylish casual outfit.
Wear with a boyfriend shirt dress
If you like boyfriend shirts but just want to look a little more feminine, a boyfriend shirt dress is a good idea for you. You can also easily combine the shirt dress with leather gaiters and short boots.
Wear it with a black sweater dress and black boots
For fans of all black outfits, here is an outfit idea that looks warmer than a typical all-black outfit. You simply combine a black sweater dress with leather gaiters and short boots. Wear a long necklace for a more feminine look.
Wear it with an oversized turtleneck
For a minimal winter look, just pull on a slightly oversized turtleneck to match your leather gaiters.
Wear it with a comfortable sweater and t-shirt dress
This outfit is just at its best. As you can see in the picture above, the t-shirt dress is a little longer than the comfortable sweater. The combination with leather gaiters and short boots makes the outfit so balanced. Everything looks right for this outfit, from color to proportions. Easily, this is my favorite outfit idea on this list.
Wear it with a black cropped sweater and a white shirt
The combination of a white shirt and a black, cropped sweater is a great outfit idea for dressing business casual. They are mostly combined with skinny jeans or trousers. For a sharp and elegant look, you can simply replace the skinny jeans with leather gaiters. For the shoes, you can wear short boots or heels for work or just white sneakers for hangouts and casual dating.
Wear with a white boho top
The typical way to style a white boho top is to pair it with jean shorts or jeans. This is good for a more feminine and refreshing look. However, for a more unique and stylish look, combine it with the leather gaiters. You will look different and cool.
Wear with a scarf and jacket
For a casual winter street look that’s so easy to take off, just pair your sweater and jacket with a scarf to pair with your leather leggings and white sneakers. Short boots also go well with this outfit.
