The age old questions (jk it’s only been a few years) is “Are leggings pants?”
Short answer: yes. Yes, yes, and yes. If they’re done right.
PSA: I would like to take a moment and make an obvious statement: flesh colored leggings are absolutely not pants. They are not even real clothes. They are an eyesore. Do not wear them.
However, BLACK faux leather leggings continue to be a reoccurring piece year after year. While I’ve avoided them in the past, I finally found a pair that are comfortable and flattering! These faux leather leggings from Target are a good alternative to the Spanx leggings as they provide a similar look.
And at $20 a pop, they’re a real contender against the more expensive options.
They’re movable (meaning you won’t have a Ross leather pants moment: S5:E11) and are a higher rise. The one thing I would caution against is wearing them on a warm day. Leather leggings are not made to be worn in hot temperatures. These particular leggings are thicker, which is a plus for insulation in the coming cold months.
While I put a fuzzy cardigan over top, you could always style with a longer shirt, blazer, or tunic if you’re more conservative on showing the world what ya momma gave ya.
