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 are a Nordstrom bestseller with more than 3,100 reviews. The best-selling style has a perfect leather finish while retaining the flattering control design Spanx has been made famous for.

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.
