Olivia Palermo is the quintessential NYC girl. She's always appropriately dressed for the weather and the occasion, and she wears outfits formulas and trends that stylish NYC dwellers wear on repeat, including her leggings of choice. Palermo has said that she saves leggings for the gym only, but there's one type she's frequently been spotted wearing both for trekking the streets of New York and for nights out—leather leggings, which NYC girls love just as much as they love their leather moto jackets.
The beauty of leather leggings is that they make whatever they're paired with look instantly polished, and they're sturdier and thicker than their spandex counterparts, so there's never any controversy about whether or not wearing them as pants is acceptable.
