It's a debate as old as time: Should you wear leggings as pants?
Leggings have been a mainstay in our wardrobes since our early Abercrombie & Fitch-filled adolescences, and some would argue that those rose-tinted memories are exactly where our legging obsessions should remain.
And while there may be grounds to keep the athleisure staple inside the four walls of a gym or on the couch, its faux-leather counterpart is a celebrity-loved trend worthy of the outside world.
As versatile as denim and stylish as leather trousers, faux-leather leggings have become vital members of our fall wardrobes. Paired with an oversized sweater and chunky combat boots, they lend a hand to an off-duty Gigi Hadid-inspired look. Alternatively, dress them up à la Olivia Palermo with a pair of brogues or loafers and a button-down blouse for an edgy take on work attire.
Our faux-leather favourite: Spanx's faux-leather leggings which just so happen to be included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. With more than 3,400 reviews, the best-selling style can be snagged for more than 30 per cent off between now and Aug. 8.
"[They are] the best leggings to ever be made," says one Nordstrom shopper. "I can't say enough about these!! Please get them, you will be so sorry if you don't! They fit like a glove!"
While the Spanx leggings typically retail for $98, they're currently on sale for $65 during the Anniversary Sale.
With more than 2,300 five-star reviews, Nordstrom shoppers say the leggings "hold you in all the right spots" and "give great shape and DO NOT camel toe!"
"No wrinkling or scrunching of that area," raves one shopper. "These are definitely a keeper and a staple!"
The high-rise style is designed with Spanx's signature Power Waistband to control and shape problem areas such as the stomach, thighs, hips and rear.
"Seriously. I will never buy another pair of real or faux leather leggings," writes one reviewer. "These make your legs look great, pull in any lower belly fat and hold you up! [...] Magic pants!"
"They make your backside looks incredible and fit like a glove!" According to another Nordstrom shopper. "The inside is almost like velour, very soft, yet the hug around your legs keeps you warm without overheating."
However, before you head to checkout, some Nordstrom shoppers mention the leather-like coating on the leggings may begin to fade after several wears and washes.
"I bought two pairs because I love the fit and look. After wearing it for several months, I'm noticing the top faux texture is wearing off," says one reviewer.
