"Every girl should have a good pair of leather leggings! Super chic! Makes her stand out!"
--Noah Dingley (The Nomadden)
Do you remember the episode of Friends when Monica and Rachel give Phoebe a pair of leather pants when she's pregnant with twins? Well, you may feel like you need a pair of leather-like leggings almost as much as Phoebe did then.
But sometimes you want to look a little tough, a little edgy.
J. Crew shows you some ways to wear your p/leather pants here. Click on "Leather."
Warning: wearing leather-like leggings, you might make you feel HOTHOTHOT, & I don't mean because it's still summer.
Expensive Pair of Pleather
This is the pair we're comparing against.

The Pair I Want that has Some Cotton Involved
This is the pair I'm leaning toward ordering. They're only $12.90, and they're made with COTTON and spandex, which seems to me a good mix.

The Least Expensive Pair of Pleather
This is the least expensive pair I've found out there, very low commitment factor.
