The Best Leggings
There a few things that girls universally love in the fall: pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin patches (if we’re being honest…pumpkin anything), warm sweaters, riding boots, and leggings. Now, in my circle of friends there is a constant debate over who makes the best leggings, should you wear them as pants, when are they appropriate…I could go on and on. Well, today is the day that the leggings debate ends. I have found the world’s perfect leggings, and they’re made by Lyssé.That’s right- the search is finally over.
I know that leggings fanatics have high standards, so here’s the breakdown on my new Lyssé Twist Zip Ponte Leggings. The ponte material is stretchy, slimming, comfortable, and most importantly- thick. These leggings are thicker than most of my jeggings, and in my opinion are completely appropriate to wear as anywhere. They look darling with long tops and heels for a night out, but they’re comfy enough to wear on the weekend with flats and a baggy sweater. The other thing that I LOVE about these leggings is the waistband. The high waist sucks in your stomach, and the thick waistband smooths everything out without looking like a control top. If you’re a skinny minnie, this feature may not interest you…but for everyone else, you’re welcome.

While I have never been the girl who wears black from head to toe, I couldn’t resist adding a lace-trimmed black top and full-on bad girl sky high black pumps. The chic simplicity of the top combined with the sleek leggings and edgy zipper detail made me feel like I walked off the set of Sons of Anarchy. Maybe Jax needs a new girlfriend?
If you are a girl who lives in leggings in the fall and winter, do yourself a favor and go order a pair (or two) of the Lyssé leggings. If you’re not into zippers, no problem. There are tons of awesome styles of jeggings, colored prints, and even vegan leather leggings. Plus, they also make adorable dresses, shirts, and skirts. I’m definitely thinking a Lyssé fall shopping spree is in my future.
