#36thingsin2019: Spanx Leggings

I was looking through my closet a couple weeks ago for inspiration for my first month of 36 Things in 2019. I started pulling all the hanging clothes back and literally creeping into the depths of the mess and what do I see stuck to one of my husband’s suit bags? SPANX FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS! I knew I had them, but for the longest time I couldn’t locate them. I decided since they’re so popular but rather pricey they would be a good item to style for you multiple ways.

The first way I styled them is with lots of layers. I’m wearing a long sleeve henley, jean jacket and sweater coat. It is freezing in West Michigan right now so I was nice and toasty shooting this look. I recommend a slim fitting denim jacket if you’re going to layer it under a sweater or coat - but I love the look!

The second way I styled them is with a chunky turtleneck and sneakers. This turtleneck is super soft and long enough to cover most of my butt. This is a great athleasure look and one I often grab if I’m hanging around the house or running errands with the kids.

Finally, I decided to do a more traditional work out look with a chunky funnel neck sweatshirt. This is a sweatshirt I always wore over my work out tops when I went to the gym. Now I work out with the Sweat app in our basement so no sweatshirt necessary but nonetheless this is a great look.

I’m certain you’ve seen these and other versions of Spanx leggings all over the internet and, to be honest, initially I wasn’t into them. When they showed up in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year I thought I’d give them a try to see what all the hype is about. I can honestly say they live up to the hype. They literally suck IT ALL IN but are somehow still comfortable. I wear them at least once a week and always get compliments on them. I wear a medium in most leggings and take a medium in these as well. They also come in plus sizes!

Do you have a pair of Spanx Faux Leather Leggings? How do you style them?
