Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton have created some super sweet styles through their label Sass & Bide. Case in point? Their leopard rats ruched leggings. All leopard-print with some intricate side ruching, these leggings have an elasticized waistband and bold pattern. They're a soft blend of 96 percent viscose, 4 percent spandex - not exactly easy care (washing them in a standard washing machine will most likely cause the fuzzies)!
Not into dry-clean only?
Newport News has some look-a-like leggings that definitely compare. Done in a jersey knit, combed cotton with spandex for added stretch, you can throw NN's tights in the wash as many times as you want. Newport News's version of the leopard-print legging is a cheap and chic alternative to the tights by Sass & Bide. NN's leopard-print legging has a 32-inch inseam, so you can scrunch them up for your own ruched effect. And for 10X less than Sass & Bide, who doesn't like that?
