Blank NYC Vegan Leather Leggings

Friday, November 14, 2014

I have been on the quest for affordable leather leggings for the better part of two years. Real leather, for the record. Along the way, I have purchased leather pants, leather skirts and leather coats (all thrifted or from eBay, which is just another form of thrifting in my world), but never leggings. Admitting defeat is tough, especially when my fashion spirit animal Johnny Weir is always looking drop dead amazing in his leather leggings. The quest began and soon, I found Blank NYC's vegan leather leggings. Having secured a 30% off coupon code from Piperlime, I splurged on the Pussy Cat style and sized up after reading about 6,000 reviews on various sites. They are honestly more comfortable than any cotton blend leggings I own (and that's a lot).

Let me digress for a moment, when did pleather stop being a word that people used? Faux leather and vegan leather sound nice and all, like a consolation prize, but most of it is crap. I usually mock the vegan leather classification, but stand on record as defending Blank's version. They look and feel just like leather. The reviews do not lie. If you're trying to make up your mind about trying this brand, don't hesitate to go for it (but I highly recommend signing up for Piperlime emails and getting a coupon code). Also, I love these so much that I also bought a second pair from eBay. Go me! Here is how I wore them:

Sweater: Rag & Bone for Neiman Marcus at Target (old)
Oxford: Uniqlo, sale ($1.90)
Heels: Talbots, old 
Top: Chiffon tie blouse, Forever 21, $17
Heels: Talbots, old

Also, a follow up, I wore my poncho and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more.
