This outfit post about Leather Leggings for the city + the country contains affiliate links. Please read this blog’s disclosure post for more info.
Earlier this week we took a look at two ways I style LOFT’s Faux Leather Leggings (on sale for $40 currently) for the city. Those outfits both feature the black pair. As we head into the weekend I’ve shifted locations from Brooklyn to Sag Harbor and colors from the black leggings to the fig berry.
Alex’s Dad purchased a home in Sag Harbor back in the 1960s as a bachelor, long before Sag was considered part of the Hamptons or before the area was the Summer destination the way it is now. Today it’s a vibrant small town technically part of Southampton right next to super posh hamlets like Bridgehampton, East Hampton and so on.
Alex’s parents have done a beautiful job of renovating their home while keeping its charm (I love the creaky original super wide plank flooring and the exposed ceiling beams, circa late 1700s!), and we’re lucky enough to stay in the basement guest suite every time we come. That suite just so happens to include one of the house’s four fireplaces!! In the Winter, we get tons of use out of that. In the Summers it tends to become overwhelming to navigate the yachts, sports cars and celebs that pour into town, so Alex’s family rents out the house to family friends and we wait until the offseason to use it. I highly recommend visiting Sag Harbor if you ever have the chance! I’ll be publishing a weekend travel guide for it in February.
Pardon me for sounding cliché, but it’s such a joy to have such a beautiful escape from the city. I feel very #blessed. There’s still a small town feel here such that I’ve gotten to know many people in town.
The vibe in Sag tends to be upscale casual. You’ll see plenty men and women trotting around in athleisure to run errands. For any kind of going out, jeans are generally frowned upon in favor of anything a little more dressed up. Faux leather leggings totally fit the bill.

This is the type of outfit my girlfriends and I call ‘posh.’ It’s styled effortlessly which I enjoy with a chic combination of elements and layering. I do love Fall dressing so much! The double pom pom hat is the lone trendy piece here — everything else is a true classic. The faux leather leggings are an easy way to give this outfit a touch of extra class. They take things up a notch from super casual to put-together casual.
The nice thing about LOFT’s Faux Leather Leggings is that you can wear them in nearly any situation where you’d otherwise jeans. Yet they can also sub in for dress pants, which makes them a real 1-2 style punch! How do you style faux leather leggings? Please share in the comments. You can also find plenty of styling inspiration for them and other items on my Street Style Pinterest board.
