Faux Leather Leggings with Internal Waistband - $98

Shopbop (2 reviews):

According to style influencers, Commando has THE best faux leather leggings. A lot of wiggle is required to shimmy your way into them on first wear, but Command assures us, it is worth it.

Being machine washable is just the beginning of their uber-popular faux leather leggings.  The fabric is textured, grainy and soft, just like the real thing. 

And with four-way stretch, the firming fabric used for the Commando faux leather leggings will cinch you in at the waist and give you a fabulous silhouette with no chance of bagging at the knees.

Commando Faux Patent Leather leggings in black


Faux Patent Leather Leggings - $98

The Commando faux patent leather leggings are a style statement for the brave! But wouldn’t they look amazing on a hot night out?

Yes, “squeakiness” is a thing with these pants. So if you love the look but don’t want to be heard strutting from half a block away, Commando suggests applying a thin coat of body oil to the inner thigh of the exterior of the legging. I kid you not!

These faux leather leggings are hand washable and made in the USA.

Faux Leather Leggings - $98

Nordstrom (2,800 reviews):

Spanx is the other brand vying for the number one spot for best faux leather leggings. 

These best selling leggings feature a contoured ‘Power Waistband’ to cinch in the waist and create a perky rear. 

The difference between these and the Commando leggings, you ask? Spanx has no center-seam so no more camel toe. And these leggings have a wide ultra-supportive waistband too, whereas he Commando leggings have a hidden internal waistband.
