Over the past few years, I've tried some leggings. And by some, I mean roughly three dozen pairs ranging from workout leggings to moto leggings to everyday leggings and beyond. There've been different materials, different brands, and different styles. But through all of my trials and test runs, one pair remains undefeated: Spanx's Faux Leather Moto Leggings. And finally, for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, these stylishly functional leggings are on sale.

I first discovered these leggings about two years ago, and I quickly realized just how versatile they were. I could just as easily wear them to work paired with a sweater as I could a night out or an afternoon of running errands in the city paired with a leather or denim jacket. Designed with a smooth, faux leather texture, they were also surprisingly comfortable, which was an enormous convenience, considering I wanted to wear them pretty much all the time. They worked in every way my tried and true plain black leggings always had - these ones just had a cool, ribbed moto design that completely elevated all my outfits.

Two years later, they remain my absolute favorite pair of leggings, but not just for their looks. Because they're Spanx, these leggings are actually super-effective shapewear in disguise. The compression technology gives my legs a toned appearance while the waistband, which hits above the belly button, helps create a flattering figure every time. And like most styles from the brand, these moto leggings are available in sizes XS through 3X, and in both regular and petite lengths, allowing anyone to wear them comfortably and confidently.

To buy:, $88 (originally $110)

If you ask me, it's no wonder these leggings are on Spanx's best-seller list. Grab them for yourself or as a gift before the weekend's over - they likely won't go on sale again until next Black Friday.
