Today's pick comes from Racked SF editor Kristen Philipkoski.

Faux Leather Leggings, $15 at Amazon

I bought these leggings because I was looking for an outfit to wear when I danced in the San Francisco Pride parade, and I quickly realized I could wear them beyond a grand celebration of LGBT love. They're silky soft, surprisingly breathable for polyester, they don't slide down, and the matte version looks like leather.

They're from a bit of an oddball store on Amazon—Leggings with attached legwarmers, anyone? But you cannot beat this price and I've already worn mine twice since the parade in environments sans rainbows.
