It may sound crazy – you may think you can’t wear leather leggings – but you can and you will feel comfortable (because they’re leggings) and you’ll look amazing (because they’re leather – or at least look like leather). I wore my Helmut Lang leggings during pregnancy with a tunic top and a little blazer for a night out and even more significantly, I wore them in the few months post baby (when I still had the post baby pouch) and they made me feel human again because I could look in the mirror and feel good about what I saw. Furthermore, I frequently wear them now and they’re one of the go to staples in my wardrobe. Yes, the Helmut Lang leather leggings are expensive but when I think how often I wear them, how many compliments I get and that they’re still as relevant today (he does them every year) as they were when I bought them 2 years ago for me they were a great investment. That said, see below for some alternative leather legging options as well as leather like options that will give you the same look for a fraction of the price (side note – for those women currently pregnant – the Asos leggings below also come in a maternity option!).
