Legging season is upon us, people, and I’m all about that jazz. Who’s with me? While the critics can argue the legitimacy of leggings as pants until the cows come home, I’m just over here living my best life in my best faux leather leggings. And here’s the secret of this favorite pair – they’re actually Spanx. Yep. The people who make the world’s best shapewear and undergarments now make outer-garments, and they’re just as amazing as you might think. You put these on and you instantly just feel a difference from normal leggings. I’m obsessed with the high rise of these because, like, I’m not sixteen anymore (shocker), and the faux leather finish is not all shiny and weird. (It’s a real thing. Large pet peeve of mine.) They suck you in and make you feel like you’ve dropped a size, and who doesn’t want that, even if it is all a big lie? Plus, they’re just all-around comfy – hello, post night-out in Vegas. I loved these so much I couldn’t stop myself and went for the denim pair as well – comfy enough to fly in but still so flattering. Perhaps it’s time to branch out from your usual sweats and yoga pants only routine and try a little something different. You seriously won’t know how good these are until you try them out for yourself.
