What You Should Know Before Buying Faux Leather Leggings

October 11, 2018

Faux leather leggings are back for fall in new on-trend colors and prints. From animal prints like snakeskin and croc to bold fall colors, faux leather leggings continue to be a wardrobe essential.

Here's what you need to know before pulling the trigger on a pair of faux leather leggings.

Why faux leather? 
Many quality faux leather fabrics have achieved a look and feel very close to that of real leather, and are a fraction of the price. Not only are they machine washable, making life a lot easier for you, they are made without harming animals.

How should I wash them?
We recommend turning inside out and using cold water on the gentle cycle to preserve the look of the faux leather, then line dry.

What qualities make faux leather look more real?
Faux leather texture and feel are two qualities to look. The fabric should have a deep, grainy texture, and a soft feel like that of real leather. Get a closer look at our faux leather leggings.

How do you prevent bagging at the knees?
Commando faux leather leggings have a four-way stretch specifically designed for a comfortable fit and to prevent bagging and sagging over time.  Real leather pants will get stretched out in higher impact areas such as the knee, and end up bagging around that area.

What can you expect from commando faux leather leggings?
We've designed our faux leather leggings to feel small when you first put them on. Trust us, they're worth the wiggle and will mold to your body to create the perfect fit. Our faux leather leggings were designed to be high rise with our signature internal waistband & firming fabric that has four-way stretch and beautiful recovery to prevent sagging. 

How can I style faux leather leggings for everyday?
Faux leather leggings are much more versatile than you’d think. They are your black skinny jeans and your weekend lounge leggings all rolled into one, with an added edge. Try with an oversized sweater and booties on the weekend, or a tunic and blazer for the office. If you’re anything like we are at commando HQ you’ll be surprised how you ever got by before you had a pair. Check out this blog post on some of our favorite faux leather legging outfits.
