Vinyl and Faux Leather Jeans

When it comes to choosing a pair of vinyl or faux leather pants, the options are almost limitless, it just depends on what it is that you are looking for. These pants are wildly popular, so there are many different types of vinyl and faux leather pants available to choose from, all much better than the options that we were given in the past.

Faux Leather Pants

Today’s styles are not the old “pleather” that first came out on the market, rather, they are made with polyester and spandex so that they breathe and are much more like fabric than the previously were. We have come a long way, baby!


One of the most popular incarnations of the look fuses two different trends: leather and leggings. Leather leggings or liquid leggings, as they are most frequently referred to, are a great fashion-forward look to throw on when you are going shopping or having a casual dinner out. Pair them with an oversized top or sweater for a daytime look or a sexy top for a nighttime look. When worn with stilettos, they can be edgy and when worn with ballet flats, they can become a more casual look. The versatility of liquid leggings has made them a wardrobe staple for both celebrities and average women.

The most common faux leather pant style is the classic jean style and it has experienced the most popular from their inception until the present day. You can find them in a slim fit, loose fit and flared leg style and even a bell-bottom trouser. They look great with gauzy style shirts, sweaters over buttoned down shirts, cotton tees, and the most common way that women usually put the look together: oversized tops such as sweaters. By wearing a top made from a different fabric, you can steer away from the “biker babe” look, unless, of course, that is what you’re going for, which you can easily do by wearing a matching vest or jacket.


Although there are not typically a wide variety of color choices for the jean style, with a little research, you can find all different colors of liquid leggings. Black is still the most popular color, but there is almost every color imaginable available.

In terms of texture selection, vinyl pants are always shiny and you can see the difference between vinyl and faux leather immediately. Some faux leather apparel is hard to distinguish from the real thing; however, that is not the case with vinyl apparel, which does not attempt to imitate, rather, it is its own look.


Vinyl is often a racier, edgier look that faux leather, as it is often associated with sexy photo shoots. Although most women assume that this makes them “unwearable” by the average woman or someone that is closer to average weight, they are surprisingly flattering on many different body types and are a remarkably comfortable fit. This eye-catching trend is available almost everywhere, giving every woman an edgy statement piece that they can easily incorporate into their wardrobes and turn heads wherever they go.
