SPANX Faux Leather Leggings REVIEW:
Type of SPANX leggings I purchased:
I purchased a best seller, the faux leather leggings in black. After reading the size guide and inseam length, I ordered them in small petite since I’m shorter and don’t like leggings bunching a lot at the bottom. (For reference I am 120 lbs, 5’3″ and usually wear a size 2/4 or size small, depending on the brand of clothing.)
Why I bought SPANX faux leather leggings:
- You had me at high-waisted. After having 2 children, my post baby belly needs all the support it can get. While I workout regularly too, my SPANX pieces (high waisted leggings in particular) are one of my post baby body wardrobe secrets. High waisted leggings are a mom BFF (Alexa is a pretty awesome one too!)
- I’ve been a big fan of the SPANX brand even before I had kids. I already owned several pieces of SPANX shapewear and swimwear. Not to mention they have great customer service and your online deliveries arrive in the cutest packages!
- Seeing pics of SPANX faux leather leggings all over Instagram looking A-MAZE-ING, made me curious. I needed to see if they were worth all the buzz. Ladies, these leggings live up to all their hype!
What I love about my SPANX faux leather leggings:
- Perfect thickness: The leggings are thin but not flimsy. They feel like a second skin.
- Comfortable: It feels like the leggings give my legs a snug hug without being too tight. They can be worn comfortably all day (and night!)
- Versatile: Spanx faux leather leggings are the perfect mix of a leather-like look without being too shiny. They come in a variety of colors too. Therefore, they can be styled so many ways—from everyday casual to dressy.
What I’m not wild about:
- Not many petite options: I’m hoping more styles become available in petite soon. I like the shorter legging length that the petite size offers since I’m only 5’3″. Petite sizing is not available for all faux leather legging styles yet.
- SPANX leggings in petite can’t be found everywhere. Department stores often have limited inventory. This is why I purchased my leggings online.
I admit–these aren’t the cheapest leggings in the world. They range from $98-$102 but in my opinion they are a fair price. They are made well, comfortable and you can wear them with so many outfits. Plus, they won’t be a splurge that you can only wear one time, nor will they sit in your closet. You will definitely get your money’s worth with these leggings!
Recommendations when buying:
- Check the size guide: the faux leather legging looked better on me in the petite size.
- Take note of the Care Instructions: The leggings come with care instructions for machine washing and how to dry them. I make sure to follow these specifics to keep my leggings looking as good as when I first got them.
- Be prepared to buy more than one pair: You know what they say about potato chips—something about betting you can’t eat just one? You are going to have a hard time purchasing ONLY ONE pair of leggings since they are all fabulous. I intended to only buy these, and ended up with these too!
Would I buy them again?
9 Ways to Wear SPANX faux leather leggings: (View the looks)
The good news? I like to wear a classic style and I tend to buy wardrobe staples. Therefore, the pieces I purchase last for years and are easily styled with new items I buy.
The bad news? The majority of the pieces seen below besides the leggings, are ones I already owned. So for items not still currently available, I linked something similar so you can still get a similar look.
These looks are styled with high heels, a sparkly clutch, and some statement necklaces. They turn a cashmere sweater, cold shoulder top, sleeveless tank, and wrap shirt into a dressy outfit when paired with the SPANX faux leather leggings.
When to Wear:
- Date night
- Girls Night Out
- Holiday Party
Faux leather leggings paired with some comfy slippers, fringe booties, cardigan or sweater are great combos for a pulled together look.
When to Wear:
- Shopping with Friends
- Weekend Brunch
- Book Club
When to Wear:
- Sporting events
- Running errands
- Grocery shopping
