I love leggings for their comfort and effortlessness, but there is the problem with having to wear a long shirt because camel-toes are a big NO-NO! It also walks the fine line as being workout apparel/sleepwear/loungewear rather than being pants. Don’t get me wrong – I love wearing leggings but they can not be worn with a shirt any shorter than your crotch.
The solution? Black skinnies! When I say skinnies, I mean both in jeans and jeggings (jean + legging) form. I do prefer the latter because they have the zipper/button closure (like real pants should) but are comfortable and stretchy at the same time.
See how versatile they are? Wear them with anything & everything:
Black Skinnies are pretty much my go-to right now because how easily it can be styled. It can be translated from a casual outfit to a date night outfit with different top, jacket and accessories that you choose.
In the market for the perfect pair of skinnies?
J Brand – Definitely the splurge of the two, however these super stretch denim is as comfortable as they get! If you want to invest in a good pair to wear often, these will be the durable ones to get.
Zara – The Steal and my personal favourite! This pair fits like a glove from hip to ankle and doesn’t break the bank. With a size zipper detail, it’s eat to dress them up and down.
