Of course, black is the most common color and the easiest to style because it goes with everything. But what about Burgundy Faux Leather Leggings? There’s always the concern that colored faux leather, especially reddish faux leather,  might look a little tacky, depending on what you wear with it.

Not to worry. Today, I’m sharing some fabulous burgundy faux leather pants from Talbots and a great way to style them to look classy. Plus they’re ON SALE right now!! Check these out.

Black leggings, brown leggings, burgundy leggings. The fact is, they’re not really all that different to style. All these colors are dark neutrals, and they look classiest when you wear them with other neutrals like black, gray, brown, navy, camel, ivory, burgundy, and even dark green. But my favorite way to wear these burgundy leather pants is tone-on-tone.

Why Style Them Tone-on-Tone?

Tone on Tone or Monochromatic is Elegant

Tone on Tone or Monochromatic means wearing one color from head to toe. When done right, it gives an elegant effect. The key is to combine slightly different different textures/tones.  It’s just too hard to match color perfectly, and your outfit looks flat without texture. Your outfit will look more interesting and sophisticated with subtle variations.

For example, my beautiful burgundy tunic sweater is a slightly brighter, clearer, and perkier color than my muted, dusty burgundy-colored leggings. Also, The leggings are smooth, sleek faux leather and the sweater is a textured ribbed cotton blend knit. You’ll also notice that the pants are shiny and the sweater is matte. If everything were all the same, it would be very boring.

Monochromatic is Trending

The monochromatic way of dressing is classic, and it never goes out of fashion, but right now, with all the neutrals we are seeing this fall, it’s a very popular way of styling. Tone-on-tone is all part of a trend we are seeing called Quiet Luxury, which is about a more understated, minimalist look that doesn’t scream look at me, I have money, but shows it!

Tone on Tone is Slimming

There’s a bonus to dressing tone on tone, and that is that it is very slimming. Wearing one color from top to bottom creates a long, lean, uninterrupted line that draws the eye up and down the body and makes you look taller and slimmer. This works for any color worn monochromatically, but especially dark colors like this deep burgundy. Dark shades absorb light and will make your body appear smaller.

Finishing Touches

You could go all the way with this burgundy leather leggings outfit and wear burgundy shoes, too. This would make for a complete Monochromatic look, but I chose animal print flats. Did you know that animal print is considered a neutral? It ties in beautifully with my outfit, with the print adding a playful touch of fun and excitement.

Jewelry Discount!

Just a quick mention of my jewelry from @deandavidson. Can you see my new square hoop earrings? These are fabulous- not too big or small, and they are on the medium fine side, so if you have fine features like me, they are manageable. If you are a first time buyer, you can get 15% off these from Dean Davidson. It’s a good thought, with Christmas just around the corner! Be sure to use code Deborah15 at checkout!

Lastly, let me mention my classic Coach 26 bag that works with almost everything in my closet, including this. I can’t recommend this cute purse enough, and it comes with a long crossbody strap if you want to go hands-free.
