How to wear leather leggings for a night out

Sequins & Leather: For a night out on the town, you can’t go wrong with a fun and flashy sequined top. A good rule of thumb for these tops is to make sure they’re long enough to cover your bum! The looser the better too since it will offer a contrast to the tight, form fitting leggings. If you prefer to accentuate your waist, choose a peplum top or cinched tunic.
