I’m sure like many of you, I am always on the hunt for a great pair of leggings. You know, the magical pair that is super-comfortable, flattering, and provides good coverage? Yep. Over the years, I’ve spent countless dollars on pairs at every price range. I’ve ordered from everywhere from Target to eBay to Nordstrom. And this year, I’ve finally narrowed it down to the two pairs of leggings I can’t live without. They live up to every item on my wish list, and you’re not going to want to miss out on them!
The first pair are these faux leather leggings. I’m not gonna sugar coat it: these are not cheap. The price is actually what kept me away from them for so long! But finally all of the hype, including those 900+ five star reviews, broke me down. I ordered them, still believing I wasn’t going to love them. Buuuut of course I was wrong. They are thick, sturdy, and will keep you warm. And the best part is how flattering they are! They suck you in without being uncomfortable and definitely look high end.
If you want a pair of leggings that you can dress up and down, these are them! I could definitely see them working in a business casual setting as well. I’d layer them under a sweater dress for extra warmth and style! But they also work for the most casual looks too! Throw on some sneakers, a tee, and long sweater and go!
As a warning, I will say that although I love these, the other (non-faux leather) leggings from Spanx have underwhelmed me. I ordered quite a few of the non-leather leggings and did not find the quality the same! (You can actually watch the try-on on my Instastories try-on highlight!)
Now, the second pair of leggings I can’t live without are these! I discovered them two years ago during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, and I haven’t looked back since. The high-waisted version is my fav because they are are flattering and they stay put! They’re thick and warm, perfect for wearing to the gym or in your everyday life. What I love is that they offer more coverage than many of the higher-priced versions out there. They are truly a gem, especially at the price! I now own three pairs of these, so that should be a testament to my love for them! Here is an example of how I’ve worn them! You can also see them a bunch in my long sweaters for leggings post!
I feel like I should also give these Hue leggings an honorable mention. I own two pairs of them, and they were my go-to before discovering Zella. They have a nice wide waistband, which is flattering. My only complaint is that they are pretty lightweight compared to the other two options. If you live in a warmer weather locale or want a light Spring to Summer option, I’d still recommend them!
