It’s time to get into another leggings selection and today we will be looking at a special type: faux leather leggings.
They are just as comfortable as regular leggings and as stylish as skinny jeans. Being a bit thicker, they help give your legs a smooth appearance, making them look good on all different thigh sizes.
No bumps, no awkwardness when wearing faux leather leggings, which is the best thing about them if you ask us.
While they are so versatile in both wear and style, unfortunately they are not as popular as one might expect. And that is because they look a bit hard to style and for some, they are a little too daring. To others it doesn’t really fit their style as they associate these leggings with the rocker / bad girl look.
So how do you style faux leather leggings, especially black ones? Easy peasy, treat them just like you would skinny jeans. Black skinny jeans go with everything so you can rock any top and shoe style you’d like with these leggings.
Now, let’s take a look at the 8 faux leather leggings we have chosen for this selection!

Capri by TOP-3 are designed as yoga pants, making them suitable for sportive wear. Honestly, we couldn’t leave out a good pair of sports leggings for this selection. Who doesn’t want to look stylish while working out? Especially for those Instagram pics!
These are quality leggings that come with mesh sides, which are both a style choice, but also help with breathability as faux leather leggings are not very good at that.
However, there are also regular options, that you can wear outside of the gym and they’re all Black.
The waist stays in place and the best thing about this design, apart from the comfort of course, is that it keeps everything static. No jiggling of the thighs while working out, which some women tend to be self-conscious about.
That’s the main reason why we’d recommend them, as opposed to regular leggings.
