Readers had a great discussion on Monday about the leather-legging look that is so popular right now, including best faux and real options and styling ideas. (And: who knew you could wash leather in the machine? This adds a whole new layer to Washable Wednesdays over at CorporetteMoms.)
The big favorite by far: these Spanx leggings, available in regular, petite, plus sizes and maternity sizes. There are also a ton of great moto-inspired looks, which might be great if you’re very sensitive about cellulite. I have a pair myself and wear them out and about — for my own $.02, I’d advise you to try your size and possibly the next one up. At 5’4″ I wish they’d had petites available when I bought mine because they do occasionally feel bunchy in my calves — clearly this is a reason why I need the moto-inspired ones, right?
I also sometimes layer my silk long johns or tights beneath them if it’s a particularly cold (or windy) night with a lot of walking, but that’s me. Looking for a nice longish sweater to pair them with? This cashmere/wool one is highly rated and only $129. Pictured: SPANX® Faux Leather Leggings
Options from reader-favorite brands include this vegan pair and this oxblood pair; there are some great coated options from reader favorite brands like Kut from the Kloth and NYDJ. If you want real leather, this pair from Reiss is leather in front, ponte in the back, which helps with “baggy butt” syndrome in leather pants; otherwise I’m drooling over this pair from Helmut Lang or this one from Theory.
