To pull off Gigi's ready-for-a-rock-concert leather-legging look, you're going to need a band tee, a bomber jacket and a statement bag or backpack. If you're down to go the whole nine yards, top it off with some killer boots and stunner shades.

You don't need to be a Kendall-status supermodel to pull off this high-fashion look. Wear a pair of pointed-toe boots (the pointier, the better), throw on a tank or crop top and pull the outfit together with a classic duster. Note: heels would also work for this if you're not loving your own boot collection.

Although faux fur is technically not something you'd consider to be casual, Bella's Puma by Rihanna sneakers definitely are. The moral of this story is that your leather leggings don't have to be the focal point of every outfit. Here they're just a piece of this played-down puzzle. Throw on a baggy t-shirt (and maybe a cute sweatshirt?) to complete this just-left-the-gym look.
Yes, this typical Kardashian look might be a little over-the-top for everyday wear, but swap the fur for a trench or jean jacket and it very well could be. Coat or no coat, a sheer top elevates the look and brings the glamour.
Constantly struggling with how to be comfortable and fashionable when it comes to office wear? Look no further for inspiration than Alison Brie's pulled-together outfit. Pair your leather leggings with a work-appropriate top then throw any moto jacket over your shoulders. With some cute pumps that look is 9-to-5 gold!
