patent leather

BLANKNYC came up with a very edgy vegan leather option: patent vegan leggings! I love the edginess and extra cool about them, especially since these talk to my inner zipper fetish! πŸ˜‰

The ankle zippers are another extra plus, because there are actually a lot more possibilities of how you can style skinnies or leggings with zippers. You can wear them open to show off some ankle chains (yeah, these are making a come-back!). Or right now, when it’s so cold, you can wear a funky pair of socks with hi top sneakers and leave the zippers casually half open.

The BLANKNYC vegan patent leather leggings are a Free People exclusive, available in any Free People store or online. BLANKNYC jeans usually run very true to size.

  1. LOVE THIS. I LOVE the details (the top of the pockets. zip, perfect length & shine) of these leggings & the sweat shirt worn with them. I even like the the tacky slides with this. Although I would never slosh around in slides, the red and stones look fantastic with this outfit.

    See how well the leggings fit the model above? It’s important not to wear these leggings too tight. The model on the web site looks instantly out of shape from the back in the leggings. despite her very tiny seat, because she’s wearing them, well like leggings, instead of pants. I like these so much I’m going to go to bloomingdales to try them on, even though blanknyc is not cut for my backside. When fabric is this shiny, they have to fit flawlessly but I can’t skip these without trying. They’re just too great.

    BlankNYC is a great brand for women with extra small back sides and not necessarily small thighs.

    BTW, do you know the name of the sweatshirt? If there’s no wool in it, I must have it. I can always wear it with my 6 year old faux leather joggers from UO if the leggings don’t work. πŸ™‚

    • It is the Free People Too Little Too Late Cashmere Dolman sweater and is available on their website:-)

  2. do you think they stretch at all? yes they look great on the model but not everyone is 5’10” and <100 lbs.
