If someone had told me a mere two weeks ago that I’d be lusting after a pair of latex looking leggings, I probably would have replied saying the style was strictly reserved for the Kim Kardashian’s of the world, and that it offered up a little more squeak than chic for my liking. But alas, the fashion item has slowly crept its way onto my radar, and admittedly, I can’t stop thinking about the trending style. Based on my Instagram feed, it seems the fashion set are on board too.

We know what you're thinking, a pair of faux leather-look leggings is nowhere near as versatile or casual as our trusty denim pieces, but trust us, with a few simple styling formulas, you'll quickly see that the new style staple has a place this season.
