Recently I shared how to style faux leather leggings and the obvious question is now who makes the best faux leather leggings? With a fashion trend like this that has been stylish for several years, it makes sense to buy the best quality, fit, and style to ensure they look great this season and for many seasons to come.

These ratings come from customer reviews on the websites of the brands and department stores that sell the product, from personal experience, and from the feedback of you, the Wardrobe Oxygen Community.

spanx faux leather leggings
Spanx faux leather leggings are a perennial favorite and come in sizes XS-3X with petite and tall options.

By far the most popular faux leather leggings, year after year, are from Spanx. They are under $100, come in petite, regular, and tall, and in sizes XS-3X. I find that they run true to size and as someone with soft curves and wide calves, find them quite comfortable and that they will hold their shape all day, even through a cross-country flight. However, I don't think anyone will look at them and believe they are real leather. I don't think that matters though, faux leather is more stylish than ever, and these are still quite chic.

commando faux leather leggings
Commando look the most like real leather, but do run a bit small and aren't as stretchy. They too are under $100 and come in sizes XXS-3X with some petite options.

Commando also makes a high-quality, stylish faux leather legging under $100. I would say they look more like real leather than Spanx with fabrication and design, but because of that they aren't as good with bounce-back and stretch through the day. However, they run almost a full size small; I wear one size larger with Commando than I do Spanx. Commando faux leather leggings come in a range of colors in sizes XXS-3X and some sizes are available in petite.

lysse faux leather leggings 1
Lysse leggings are high quality, come in sizes XS-3X, and have chic details like strategic seaming and on-trend colors.

I find Lysse faux leather leggings to look the most like real leather, and be of excellent quality. The seaming elongates legs and the fabric really molds to your body for a perfect fit. They are available in a few different colors (and of course black) in sizes XS-XL for $109 and plus sizes 1X-3X in black only, for $119.

yummie faux leather leggings
The Yummie faux leather legging is a wallet-friendly alternative available in sizes XS-3X

For quality faux leather leggings with a bit of interest, the Yummie faux leather leggings with ankle zippers are highly rated for fabric, quality, and style. They are available in sizes XS-3X for $68.

eloquii faux leather leggings
ELOQUII faux leather leggings come in black and brown, in sizes 14-28, and get great reviews for comfort and fit.

One of the best plus-size faux leather leggings is from ELOQUII. While the other brands go up to size 3X, ELOQUII focuses on fit specifically for plus sizes and it shows with these comfortable, well-fitting faux leather leggings in sizes 14-28. They run true to size and have a soft interior that is both comfortable and cozy on a brisk fall day. Two colors; available for $89.95.

  1. I got a gorgeous maroon pair of Spanx moto faux leather leggings last year, but even going up a full size the waist was so tight it gave me ‘segmented worm syndrome’. I do need the tall option, so I might spring for another pair 2 sizes up and see how that goes. Although the faux leather joggers you have are gorgeous!

She shared that her leggings were the $40 Assets brand from Target. I immediately ordered some for myself. They fit well and are decent quality. The top band is a Spanx-like fabric vs leather. I’m excited to rock these over the cooler months. And the
