I read THE most entertaining book last month: “When Life Gives you Lululemons.” In it, main character Emily is continuously appalled with the daily fashion staple among her female counterparts in downtown Greenwich, Connecticut – leggings. While I too am not a fan of the stretchy leg wear when faced with dressing for work or an evening out – I must admit (and to Emily’s dismay) I also fall prey to those splendid sheaths of cotton, spandex and in some cases cashmere! They’re not just for yoga and Soul Cycle ladies!
So here we go: first stop: Vince capri leggings available at Neiman Marcus. They give a great fit with a front stitch seam to add some interest and even available in a deep green to liven up your look. Pair them with a great tunic top and you’ll really be good to go – anywhere!
I’m 100% on board with anything Adidas and add some Stella McCartney and I’m sold on the spot! This coffee and rose engineered knit capri look in a coral hue can take you from dawn to dusk and beyond. Grab them at farfetch.com.
You can’t miss with Lysse designer leggings with great grey dip-dye, to black shine, to rose metallic to black sketch – you’ll have all bases covered when slip them on. They are a great add to your weekend wardrobe rotation with the custom blend of natural cotton and just the right amount of stretch built in to give you the sleek silhouette you’ve worked so hard for!
