Once upon a time, I had to wear a specific dress code on flights: no jeans, no open-toe shoes, no shorts, and no pants for women. As the daughter of a flight attendant, my family and I had to strictly follow these rules when we flew stand-by. While I can understand following a certain dress code because you’re representing the airline just as much as the employee is, these rules were pretty strict. So you can imagine how happy I was when the airline recently loosened up protocol, and I could finally wear comfortable pants, including leggings.

It all about comfort and convenience for me now, and these days when I don’t feel like dressing up my travel outfit, leggings are my go-to choice. Whether you want to admit it or not, these bottoms can be dressed up or down, especially if they are a super chic pair like Spanx’s Faux Leather Moto Leggings.

They not only look nicer than typical athleisure (thanks to their textured seams), they’re also super compressing (in a good way!) if you’re looking for a pair that won’t sag or fall down. With the same hidden shaping that Spanx is known for, you can be comfortable and confident while embracing the leggings’ tight fit. And with more than 500 reviews on Nordstrom, customers especially love this pair of Spanx leggings because the detailing helps slim and smooth your legs while looking versatile enough to wear with either sneakers or booties. But if you’re on the shorter side like me, Spanx now offers the Moto in a petite size, as well as in gray.

The next time you’re trying to decide if those skinny jeans are worth wearing during a long flight, they aren’t. Shop the Spanx Moto leggings below because they’ll be worth every penny after just one wear — trust us.
