Faux leather often doesn’t live up to all the hype.
Sure, they look dreamy on the models but the thought of wearing them gives us the heebie-jeebies. No matter the size or style, they end up looking as if we have encased our legs in black saran wrap. Plus, they are a whole lot of uncomfortable! And shall we even mention that noise they make when we walk?
We must admit that we were skeptical about Spanx’s latest Faux Leather Joggers. The new jogger is a completely innovative look for Spanx as they break away from the tight-fitting legging. These pants have a looser fit around the thighs and ankles but still stretchy enough to hug your curves in all the right areas. Best part is they have pockets, nice big pockets that you can actually put your hands into.
We don’t just like these new joggers, we LOVE them! They are super comfortable, and we must admit that we can see ourselves wearing them, day-after-day. Best part is they don’t cling to you like other styles of faux leather pants do or make that weird squishing noise every time you move. Perhaps it is because they have a soft brushed lint fabric on the inside of the pants, which makes them perfect for colder weather.
One of the outstanding features about the Spanx Faux Leather Jogger is that they’re stylish enough to go out for cocktails or dancing but stretchy enough to do a high-intensity workout in. Unlike other faux leather leggings that feel like you are wearing a portable sauna, these are breathable and keep your skin dry. Another bonus is that they don’t stretch out of shape, no matter how active you are or how many days you wear them between washes.
The waistband sits flat on your midriff providing some serious tummy tucking that smooths away that muffin top. But the waistband itself is well-designed so it won’t bunch up or down roll like other faux leather leggings. You can’t help but fall in love with the cuffed ankle.
Finally, Spanx has created a faux leather pant that doesn’t look as if we dressed for a 70’s disco party. They look like the genuine deal, or at least enough to make them wonder. Even though they only come in black, they don’t look or feel like black saran wrap.
Spanx offers these beauties in a huge range of sizes from XXS to 3XL.
How to style your new Spanx Faux Leather Joggers:
- Slip on a fitted statement t-shirt with an oversized boyfriend-style cardigan and a pair of sneakers
- Throw on a black turtleneck, with black ballet-style flats and some jewelry to make the outfit pop
- Tuck in a flowing, silk blouse to the front of your pants and a funky pair of ankle boots, to show the world you are not someone to be messed with
- Wear it with that perfectly, slouchy winter sweater that you have been dying to wear all summer and a pair of flats
