I got these leatherette jeans a few months ago and I know I say this a lot but in all honesty, I've been wearing them nonstop. They are high waist-ed, which is nice for mommy midsections. (Is it bad that I use my kids as scapegoats when I could really be doing some sit ups and passing on that 4th slice of pizza?) Going back to the jeans, they look more like black denim with just a slight leathery sheen, which makes it completely daytime/night time/any time appropriate. I've worn it out everywhere from a swanky lounge to my daughter's field trip. Highly recommend!
