Denim leggings are comfortable and chic
As some of you know, I am a big fan of leggings to wear on weekends and for dance training. Some of you may also know that I am a big fan of No nonsense’s tights and leggings. Thus, when I was asked to review a pair of No nonsense leggings of my choice, I did not hesitate to accept. I picked a pair of denim leggings in black. They also come in red and other fashion colors depending on the size. What I like about this pair is that it has the comfort of leggings, but the chic of denim skinnies an Alaska classic. And, did I say that black has a slimming effect?
The leggings I reviewed are a size S and fit well around the legs and the hips. I am petite (5 ft 4″, 1.63 m), but the leggings are long enough to fit easily length wise a 2-3 inch taller woman than I am.
I like the real pockets and faux joke in the back and the faux fly and pocket details in the front. These details make these denim leggings a little bit more dressy than jeggings, i.e. leggings without these details. The details permit wearing the leggings with a shirt and a blazer for a coffee at the mall on a Saturday. They also look cute with an Irish cable knit sweater or a flannel plaid shirt. And yes, you can wear leggings at any age.
For the outfit photos, I styled these classic black denim leggings with an asymmetric tunic, a statement belt and pumps for a comfy Casual Friday outfit. It was one of the few Fridays without meetings so I could get away with this little more casual look.
Material of the denim leggings
The look of denim leggings have some stretch. They are made with cotton and spandex to hold their shape, while providing a comfortable fit. They are hold above the lower waist by a soft, non-binding waistband. They did not show any “knees” or the “bum” when I took them off after a day of wear.
The No nonsense classic leggings cost $16.99. Given that they are very versatile to style and perfect for the weekend, it is like to get 2 to 4 wears per month this winter until end of April or so depending on the lifestyle. This assumption leads to about 12 to 24 times. This means that it is easily to come in below a dollar per wear, which is my criterion for a good price-per-wear ratio. This ratio makes these classic denim leggings a good deal when you wear leggings often on weekends. 🙂
