If you didn’t know already, Oroblu does a lovely range of clothing as well as hosiery, so I am ecstatic to try out their leggings! These are great if you’re into the whole faux leather look, to dress up or down.
Now I understand these won’t be ideal for the upcoming months as these are fleece-lined, but it’s great to be able to show you what they are like if you do decide to invest in a pair for the cooler months to come.
Materials: 93% Polyester, 7% Elastane
Let’s dress for drinks in town – I wore my cropped embellished jumper paired with my embellished strap sandals with my leggings. It still keeps it casual but dressed enough.
Heels: off Amazon
From The Website: Solid Component is a stunning range of leggings by Oroblu. They are a striking collection of designs that have that classically stylish and sexy leather look that never fails to look great. But they are also a great choice for comfort too, with a wonderfully comfy fit and a fleece lining inside that keeps you cosy in the winter months.

The Packaging: I gotta say I like how these came. They were wrapped in clear plastic packaging, which helps to protect the coating on the leggings in transit. There is no actual cover to these, apart from the middle card piece which holds it together. The front states the brand and model, and a little more about the leggings on the back.
Once you unravel it all out, they’re ready to roll on!
Getting Them On: as these do feel quite thick, I did my usual scrunch and roll up the legs to make sure it doesn’t tug on the anklets too much when I shimmy them up the legs. They were a lovely smooth glide right up, which made such a nice change from fully fitted leggings where you have to do that wiggle dance!
On The Legs: now these are looking super nice! I will mention that your legs might look slightly padded out (nothing too drastic let me assure you) purely because of the fleece layering inside. It just pads you out slightly so you know what to expect if you do go to purchase.
I only say this as I had a friend who bought a similar pair online years ago, and when they came, they were kinda thick on the legs and she hated them. She expected a fleece lining but they’re still super thin on the legs – that’s now how these work!
When they are on, they are super snug and so soft too! Obviously for this type of year, they are a little too warm to wear but for a cooler night out, these would be perfect!
The fit of these were so lovely; they weren’t tight at all, and you had some leg room in them to move. Sometimes they can be quite stiff, so it squeaks when you walk, but you won’t get that with these. There is plenty of room for you to crouch, sit down cross-legged, jump etc. I loved being in them!
The feel of them are so soft, but I have to warn you to be cautious of the coating. These can easily get damaged if you are careless. I would avoid anything too hot to be near these as it will mess with the coating. I made sure that no alcohol or drinks were split near my leggings and careful of anything that might mark them. Otherwise they are absolutely great to be in!
Now I picked this colour (there are various others) purely because I don’t own enough khaki coloured clothing, and it makes a nice change from black to be honest. These can be dresses smart or casual, depending on your style. I wore mine for an evening out, and thought they were just perfect. You can add heels, flats, trainers, sandals without having to think twice.
I didn’t take many images of the lining inside, but the fleece is somewhat a darker colour to the leggings, so if you do decide to roll them up, it’s just something to be mindful of.
Around The Ankle: these aren’t a fully fitted grip on me, which I actually like. This means I have the option to keep them flat or turn them up without struggling. As I am quite short, just bear in mind that the leg length can vary. On me, these sat right to the bottom of my ankle, but I didn’t mind that as it was hidden under my sandals this time. Normally I would roll them up to give a more relaxed feel to them.
The Waistband: now the band has a lovely bit of stretch in them but they hug so well around the waist. These sat around the belly button on me, and did not slip down once either. They were super comfortable to be in, and I had no issues at all being in them either.
I would certainly be recommending these for those cooler days/months; that way you can still be looking stylish and kept warm too! I love the quality of them and the colour is to die for as well!
