When the faux leather legging trend came around, I actually dismissed it. I had long given up trying to find leggings for my long legs. I just didn’t wear them. But I really, really wanted some.
Faux leather leggings is the best of both worlds. It combines the comfort of leggings with the eternal chic of leather.
However, it can be a challenge to find extra long leggings if you’re a tall woman, much less a trendy style like faux leather leggings.
When I was a runner, I was always so frustrated with the leggings I had, which I could never get to stay down past mid-calf at best. I thought that full-length leggings were the stuff of dreams.
Fortunately, more and more brands are recognizing that tall women don’t just exist on runways, we live out in the wild! So leggings for tall women are becoming easier to find.
Here is a collection of the best faux leather leggings I’ve found!
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
The O.G. of vegan leather leggings is from Spanx. They are always selling out and continue to be a sought after style year after year. Until recently, they didn’t come in lengths for long legs.
These leggings are made out of high-quality PU leather and have the same amazing shaping effect as other Spanx products.
Now they come in a length for tall, although I have not been able to confirm as of yet the exact inseam. According to sizing charts, the regular length stretches up to a 34-inch inseam.
I found this to be true, as I have regular length faux leather leggings from Spanx that are not specifically made for tall women. It stretches enough so that it looks like an ankle-length legging (for reference, my inseam is 35 inches).
However, I am also on the thinner side, so I was able to buy these right off the rack.
