Assets by Spanx Faux Leather Leggings Under $40 + High Five for Friday Linkup Party

I totally meant to buy the Spanx faux leather leggings during the Nordstrom sale this year, but I dropped the ball. And I didn’t want to pay full price, although I hear they’re worth it. All of my blogger buddies rave about them. One night here recently I was Googling “Spanx faux leather leggings” when this pair popped up for $38. These Assets by Spanx faux leather leggings are just $38!!!!!

$38 Assets by Spanx faux leather leggings // plaid babydoll top–take $30 off $100 + w/ code BIGHAUL // glitter tennis shoes–grab them for under $20 today! // Kendra Scott Elora earrings c/o–on sale // black granite necklace c/o // dichroic glass necklace c/o // sunglasses // crossbody


First of all, I didn’t even know that Spanx had a line at Target! It’s called Assets by Spanx. Their version of Spanx faux leather leggings come in both black and burgundy. One thing I noticed before ordering is that the waistband on these is not faux leather (like the full price Spanx faux leather leggings). It’s the signature Spanx shaping waistband, and these are designed to help avoid muffin top by hitting at your natural waist. The faux leather material is thick and really helps you to feel pulled-together. Now, they’re clearly not the $98 Spanx version, but these are an amazing deal for $38!


I’ll be bringing you another way to style these leggings next week (so versatile!), but I wanted to show you a more casual way to style faux leather leggings. A flannel top looks adorable with faux leather leggings. You want to find one that is more tunic length, like this plaid babydoll top. It’s a different take on plaid this season. You could add booties to this look for a more dressed-up approach, but opt for detailed sneakers for something more casual but still chic. I’ve had several friends also buy these gold glitter sneakers and they are exactly what you need for this look. They fit a little big (size down if you’re in-between sizes) and are comfortable. Plus they’re on sale for under $20 today.

Add some fun accessories and you’re good to go!
