Faux Leather: Style Not Age Challenge

 Faced with the challenge Faux Leather, Is This Mutton's Gail Hanlon remembered she has a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings. These she styled with a green coat, boots and belt, and black Peter Pan collar top with pink bag
When Jacqui set "faux leather" as this month's  Style Not Age Challenge, I was a little flummoxed.  I don't have any faux leather, I thought. Then I remembered the Spanx leggings I bought a few weeks ago. Relief!

I've styled my leggings differently to when I first showed you a mint jumper and beret look. 

Older women nervous about wearing faux leather leggings on their own can wear them with a long cardigan or coat as Is This Mutton's Gail Hanlon demonstrates

I've added a green coat  (old, M&S), my new green velvet boots, a green metallic belt from Kettlewell, and a new top from Damsel in Distress, (affiliate link) which I leapt on because of the cute collar detail.  My pink bag from Amazon and pink lipstick adds another colour contrast for interest.

Now let's see what the other girls came up with.  Hilda from Over the Hilda was originally going to wear her Spanx leggings too, but she then found an old faux leather jacket to use instead.  She's created a wonderfully stylish casual look. The jeans are no less than 17 years old  (and, Hilda notes happily, back in fashion again). Her top is an old Zara one.

Jacqui from Mummabstylish has a wonderful new pair of chocolate brown culottes which she's wearing with a sunflower top old one from Bonmarche, new off white coat from New Look sale,  and old faithful ivory ankle boots from Next.

Emma from Stylesplash has a faux double, with a top with faux leather sleeves from New Look, Warehouse check mini skirt from eBay, Lotus faux leather boots from a charity shop and LaBante vegan leather red bag from eBay.

Anna from Anna's Island Style has a summery, jaunty look with pre-loved top and pleather leggings.  Her necklace is a lovely vintage find, sunglasses are Quay Australia and boots are from Topshop.

I hope you enjoyed our faux leather looks.  More on the individual blogs. I'm back on Wednesday with #WowOnWednesday - hope to see you then.
