Leather pants may symbolize today's "cool but carefree" aesthetic better than any other piece of clothing. This season alone, everyone from Anne Hathaway to Megan Fox has sported a pair for both daytime and evening events, and it doesn't look like the sleek trend is going anywhere soon. The only downside? Leather (even faux leather) pants are stiff, unforgiving, and downright uncomfortable compared to the roomy, stretchy bottoms that became uniform during lockdown. Luckily, celebs in the know have found the perfect solution.

Famous for its A-lister loved styles, Spanx designs its leggings to be ultra-soft, lightweight, and sculpting, and these tights are no exception. Made from a surprisingly stretchy blend of nylon and elastane, Spanx's take on the leather legging features the brand's signature booty lift: a compressive waistband that contours and lifts your bum to asspirational heights. What's more, the high-waisted design thoughtfully excludes a center seam to avoid the dreaded camel toe. (BTW: You can also check out these Jennifer Garner-approved Spanx leggings, here.)

But the best part is: While these bottoms may look like perfectly tailored leather pants, they have the same comfy legging fit we all know and love. Paired with a cute jean jacket and sneakers, these tights instantly elevate a look from casual to on-trend with literally no effort. Plus, even after a day on-the-go or a fun night out, this is one pair of pants you won't want to rip off the moment you get home.
