A pair of faux & vegan leather leggings are a staple in every girl’s fall/winter wardrobe, so in this post, I’m sharing 6 of the very best options for every occasion!
Classic black leggings are cool and all but nothing beats a pair of leather pants that add an element of chic edginess and coolness to one’s outfit. Whether you’re slaying work at home or rockin’ the physical distance game outdoors, these versatile & comfortable faux leather leggings can be worn for every occasion.
What are vegan leather leggings made of? Vegan leather is a general term used to describe materials made from anything other than animal skins & hides. But note that leggings made with faux-leather or vegan leather aren’t made from the same material vegan handbags and shoes are composed of.
Instead, faux leather leggings are made from synthetic materials like polyester and nylon but with a polyurethane coating that gives it the leather-look or glossy-finish that makes it different from the classic leggings we own.
Note: If you want to shop for sustainable vegan leather pants, then your best option is to shop second-hand as all faux-leather pants are made from synthetic materials. I have yet to find a pair of vegan leather leggings made from sustainable materials but I would definitely want to see apple leather pants be a thing in the future!
