How to Style: Faux Leather

August 24, 2021

Our not-so secret solution to transitional dressing? Faux leather. 

The look and feel of the real thing, but better. Commando’s innovative Faux Leather features four-way stretch and recovery, the best part all styles are machine washable. 

A truly versatile fabric, Faux Leather is not only a favorite amongst style influencers, but celebrity stylists and their clientele. A kit staple, these styles have been worn by Demi Lovato, Gwen Stefani, Kourtney Kardashian, Camila Cabello and Ashley Graham.

Whether you’re looking for chic staples, or statement-making pieces, Commando offers a range of Faux Leather styles that can be dressed up or down. Scroll down for some major outfit inspiration featuring our favorite Faux Leather styles such as our Patent Legging, Crop Flare and our newest style; the Paperbag Pant.

The Faux Patent Leather Legging

We’ll preface that our Faux Patent Leather Leggings are worth the wiggle. 

An evolution of one of our most popular styles, the classic Faux Leather Legging; this high-shine style boasts four-way stretch and recovery which means it will hold its body-molding shape all day long, while our patented internal waistband smooths you out. 

Is this a bold look? Yes. But we promise this is a style you can easily dress up and down!

WFH gets a major style upgrade with our Faux Patent Leather Leggings, pair it with an oversized sweater and you are set; or when brunch is calling your name...pair our Faux Patent Leather Leggings with your favorite button down and textured outerwear piece.

Don’t be intimidated if our leggings look small, or feel snug when you first see them. We promise they are worth the wiggle - they will stretch and fit perfectly for an all day comfortable wear. Constructed with our patented signature, dig-free waistband, this technology is what makes our leggings, your favorite legging. Our high-rise signature waistband assists in offering a smooth finish and technical innovation to ensure no rolling, digging or binding occurs when you strut in this profound luxury basic.

The Faux Leather Crop Flare

Add a bit of flare to your look, literally. 

This style is slightly cropped above the ankle and features raw-cut hemlines and our patented internal waistband for that smoothing finish.
