No nonsense twill leggings – review

#NononsenseReview No nonsense twill leggings

No nonsense, these are great leggings

When you follow this blog already for a while, you know that I am a big fan of No nonsense leg wear. Thus, I immediately agreed to review a pair of leggings of my choice when I was asked to. Their printed summer leggings were really tempting. <3 They are perfect for the Dog Days weekends of August or a summer vacation. However, when I saw that they already have the first fall items, I couldn’t resist to pick a pair from their new fall collections.

No nonsense twill leggings can go for work

I chose a pair of twill leggings. What I like about them is that twill provides great insulation and looks posh. The seam that these leggings feature down the leg, ups their style. It makes them office appropriate in a casual work environment and for Casual Friday in a corporate place with a blazer and shirt or a tunic as I styled the pair of my choice. This seam gives the leggings the look of cigar pants with a fold from far. The seam detail also has a slimming effect.

These twill leggings are a wardrobe essential

These No nonsense twill leggings are made of 64% cotton, 31% polyester, and 5% spandex. The spandex serves to hold the form. After a day of sitting at work, the knee part of the leggings bounced back when I stood up. The leggings are very comfortable. I wear a size S and they are true to the size. The comfort and the ease to style them as well as their posh look make these twill leggings a fall wardrobe essential. They come in shadow olive, black, classic tan, and nappa. These neutral colors match well with work clothes.

Leggings are a great way to showcase your legs without showing to much. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

Great price-performance ratio

The No nonsense twill leggings cost $16.99. Given that they are so versatile to style and comfortable, one will wear them 2 to 4 times a month this cold season. Thus, at the end of the cold season (September thru March), this assumption lead to about 14 to 28 times. This means you can get easily below a dollar per wear, which is my criterion for a good price-per-wear. Thus, these twill leggings are a good deal. 🙂
