I am definitely not a jeans person. I wear leggings any chance that I can. Leggings are pants and anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong! I wear my leggings to work paired with a cute blouse or tunic.. or lounging around the house on a lazy Sunday afternoon.. or while I’m out and about running errands. Leggings are a staple in my wardrobe because they can be effortlessly dressed up or dressed down, all while allowing me to be comfortable.
I have about 15 pairs of black leggings.. And I hate almost every pair. One day, I decided to Google, “the best pair of black leggings” .. That’s how desperate I was for a decent pair. After reading many reviews, I decided on Nordstrom’s Zella Live In Slim Fit Leggings, in Black. Come to think of it, I am actually sitting here writing this post in my Zella leggings.
My Zellas are the most comfortable and most flattering pair of leggings that I own, by far. Their versatility is perfect for lounging, exercising, or everyday wear. The material is the perfect balance between thick and thin, which allows for maximum comfort, support and breathability. The material is super soft and cozy for lounging around yet thick enough to hold everything in. These leggings have a slight spanx-like effect to help shape and sculpt your lower half, which is a nice bonus. The waistband stays taut so there’s no need for constant adjusting or “pulling up.” They truly do stay put all day. These leggings have a matte look, in that they don’t have a shiny, workout pant look to them. I also like how they’re seamless on the outside part of the leg, making them look less like an exercise pant. I’ve also tested their opacity and they’re not see through, at all! They continue to hold their shape and don’t fade after frequent washing. There is nothing that I hate more than a pair of black leggings losing their stark black color after multiple washes. At half the price of other trendy athletic clothing brands, this quality surpasses the rest. Sorry Lululemon, I’ve found the perfect alternative! So perfect, I just bought another pair!
