Turtleneck – Asos | Pants – Mango | Shoes – Something Navy (similar here) | Bag – Gucci | Lipstick – NARS Heat Wave | Sunglasses – Le Specs

I don’t always gravitate towards trendy pieces though occasionally I will find something that is slightly trendy but I feel I can still wear it for years to come. These faux leather joggers/trousers are one of those pieces. I love the look of faux leather skirts/leggings/pants as I think they can add a slight edge to an outfit without being overly inappropriate. Faux leather is much more acceptable for the workplace than it ever was before (though I understand there are still environments where it will never be appropriate), and the styles are so much more versatile. I saw these faux leather trousers on Mango while I was perusing their site recently and was intrigued to give them a try. They run extremely big so I would size down at least one if not two sizes. The key for me was cuffing them to give them a slightly cropped look though if you are tall, you may not need to do this. Since they are a bit baggy, these would not be pants that I would wear with flats or sneakers. I need a heel to help offset the bagginess of them. In addition to being cute, they are also incredibly comfortable. Bonus!

What are your thoughts on faux leather trousers? Would you wear them?
