    Promising review: "I have never had a pair of pants like this before and I am a rock singer that performs on stage. Leather pants are a must for me! I was concerned that the waist would be too baggy, but let me tell you these things are like wearing cling film; they stick to your body very very snug they have this type of soft, fluffy material on the inside of the leg part, that just hugs to your leg like a compression tight. They are also warm as hell; I’m cruising around outside in our South Carolina winter and 30-degree weather, and these things keep my legs really warm! They don't look cheap, either; they are so classy. You can dress them up with a pair of high tops or sweet evening boots with a nice little top. It’s a win-win!!" —Bee Aye

    5. A pair of Carbon38 7/8 high-rise leggings that gives off so much shine you might need a pair of sunglasses when wearing them.


    Promising review: "OMG! OMG! These leggings are the bomb. They are sooo beautiful and fit soo well. They feel like my second skin, silky smooth with a fabulous high and firm waistband that holds your midriff firmly and comfortably compressed. I bought the matching top and the ensemble is absolutely gorgeous. The color of this legging (and matching top) is even more beautiful up close. Spectacular. Thank you, Carbon38." —Eagle

    Promising review: "These are a must! They are beyond comfortable with a great stretch!!! They're also stylish and sexy! They hug me in all the right places! I can't wait to wear them out!!! I highly recommend these!" —Jacque123

    Get it from Commando for $148 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    8. A pair of high-waisted pleather leggings complete with a tummy-control waistband and four-way stretch material for ultimate comfort.,

    Promising review: "I bought these after hearing wonderful things from friends and reading the reviews. JUST WOW! I was not expecting to LOVE these! I did go up one size (medium) from my regular size (small) to make room for my booty after reading they run small in the reviews. But I love the look, fit, feel, and especially appreciate a NO FRONT SEAM! They're the perfect shade of black and I like the slight shine to them for the faux-leather look! I not only enjoy wearing them for a more dressy look but also find myself wearing them around the house to lounge in because they are THAT comfy! Perfect length to them, which is a tough find for me (being 5'7"), but these hit perfectly right at or just below my ankle depending on how I distribute the fabric. The high-waisted band hits just right; a couple of inches above my belly button." —Ray

    Get it from Amazon for $47.68 (available in sizes XS–4X and three colors).

    9. A pair of plus-size high-waisted faux-leather leggings from Torrid so you can easily channel your inner rock star whenever you feel like it.


    Promising review: "I'm 100% a rocker chick and these will be a new staple in my wardrobe. They fit PERFECTLY and are comfortable to boot. I love how versatile these leggings are. I will rock them out most of the time but can dress them up with a nice blouse or sweater for a dinner out or trip to an art gallery. Well done, Torrid — you ROCK!" —RockerJen

    Get it from Torrid for $39.50 (available in sizes M–6X).

    10. A faux-leather "megging" available in bold colors like gold and silver that's pretty much guaranteed to be your first of many pairs.,

    Promising review: "When you wear these pants, you need to OWN that GLAM rocker look. They fit well and definitely get attention. They are not just for raves or Halloween parties." —Dood

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 11 colors).

    11. A stylish Spanx camo legging you'll never have to worry about being see-through.


    (And maybe a pair of cute black boots to tie your outfit together!)

    Promising review: "I just received these today and I'm already obsessed. They are true to size. They are perfect and best of all, not see-through one bit. These leggings are thicker than other leggings but not constricting. I will probably buy another pair because they are that amazing." —TH27

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in sizes XSP–XL).

    12. A comfy pair of Lysse high-waisted faux-leather leggings in two gorgeous foliage-like colors that make me wish it was autumn year-round.


    Promising review: "I've been on the hunt for a good pair of faux-leather leggings — you know, a pair that looks like the real thing, only won't rob me blind. While I'd love to own a pair of real leather pants, they're just WAY too expensive. These though...they're as close as I've come to finding this unicorn pant! The finish is so nice — shiny enough to look like leather, but not so shiny it looks like plastic. I think they're VERY soft for a faux material." —peachyuggs

    Get it from Nordstrom for $108 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    13. A pair of faux-leather Halogen leggings to instantly add some edginess to your wardrobe.


    Note: Reviewers say these run long.

    Promising review: "I am always fearful of buying leather-looking leggings, but these are perfect! They are soft and easy to pull on. They are slimming and smooth without being so tight you feel like you are wrapped in Saran wrap. They are not too tight at the waist. They look and feel great." —MaryinLA

    Get it from Nordstrom for $59 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    14. A top-rated Spanx faux-leather legging with rave reviews that'll ~faux sure~ be your new fave pair.,

    Promising review: "WOW! I’ve worn these at least once a week since getting them almost a year ago and I still get excited to see them! They’re tremendously versatile and can be dressed up or down. You will not regret this purchase! Trust me!" —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $93+ (available in sizes XS–XL and five colors).

    15. A black faux-leather Commando legging with — wait for it — two deep pockets! Leggings with deep pockets?! Truly revolutionary.

    Promising review: "I have bought several Commando leggings. Some without the pockets, but I keep reaching for these ones. I love that the pockets are deep. They can fit my XL iPhone. They can fit my ID and credit card when going through security at the airport. I love how versatile they are: from day to night with a few accessory changes or a top or shoe change." —Saray

    Get it from Commando for $128 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    16. A cropped version of Commando's flare leggings so you can show off those new booties you bought with unobstructed views.

    Promising review: "IT IS PERFECTION!!! I LOVE THESE PANTS AND WISH THEY WERE AVAILABLE IN MORE COLORS!!! This is a new style for me, I already own four others. Thank you for such a great product." —Anonymous

    Get it from Commando for $98 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).

    17. A pair of 7/8 Nike mid-rise leggings designed with moisture-wicking technology and a back-waist phone pocket, because it's the little things in life, am I right?


    Promising review: "I saw these in-store and they immediately caught my eye! I’ve been wanting some workout leggings with the faux-leather look and these are it! They look and feel like really good quality and don’t feel suffocating like a lot of faux-leather leggings I have tried. I initially tried one size up thinking they might be too tight but I found that these are actually true to size! Looking forward to wearing these!" —Alisab03

    Get the green and pink pair for $42 or the same legging in black/gray for $70 (available in sizes XXS–XXL), all from Nordstrom.

    18. A "Keep It Sleek" vegan-leather legging from Lulus you won't ever have to worry about not being able to get back off (looking at you, Ross).


    Promising review: "These leggings are amazing. They hug your body so nicely and are so soft and smooth. I got a medium because I was afraid of not being able to get them on and off easily (like Ross from Friends). They are a little loose in some spots, but not baggy and still look great." —Lauren R.

    Get it from Lulus for $49 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).
