Leather-look pants are the ultimate wardrobe must-have if you like an edgy look.
The problem is, most faux leather trousers begin to stretch and loosen in all the wrong places with a bit of wear.
The result? Roomy knees and (horror!) a baggy bottom.
But now, fashion mavens, we have discovered a secret employed all over Instagram, but rarely mentioned.
Motorbike Leggings from Spanx – and they’re the perfect stretchy New Year companion if , like us, you’ve overdone it on the mince pies.
Created in black in a distressed faux leather finish, they sculpt to your natural shape and smooth and enhance your silhouette for the perfect fit.
The all-over elasticated construction pulls in your wobbly bits like nobody’s business and the ribbed detailing through the front makes them look luxe so nobody would ever suspect you’re essentially wearing super comfy jeggings.
At €110 here, they’re not cheap but they last and they’re machine washable so you’ll be wearing them season after season.
Style with a tee-shirt and a blazer to complete the look – just don’t tell anyone our secret.
