If you had told me 5 years ago I would one day be singing the praises of something ‘faux’ leather, I never would have believed you. Then again, back in high school when I was forced to wear a polyester soccer uniform, I was horrified. Now there are quite a few (ahem) man-made materials in my closet. I digress. As much as I abhor faux-leather bags and jackets, I’m finding I don’t mind it so much when it comes to pants and skirts. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it’s because I just don’t like when someone tries to pull off something faux as real.
However, I have to tell you…I am LOVING my new Karen Kane Faux Leather Leggings. They have the luxe “look” of leather and are the ultimate statement piece. If you are looking for a bit of rocker-chic edge, that’s actually comfortable, these leggings are for you. I love that they actually fit your shape, but are not skin-tight. The pull-on waist is genius and also serves as a bit of a tummy controller. Bonus! They have a skinny fit, faux back pockets and a medium rise. I have worn mine with a loose denim shirt and with a light sweater. In fact, I pretty much plan to wear them with everything this fall and winter. I just hope I don’t wear them out.
