Every Day Leggings Petrol.
These brand new stretchy, soft and super comfy leggings are a product we’ve been talking about making for years! And after much tweaking and deliberating, they’re finally here and they’re THE BEST!
FEATURES: Our full length jersey leggings are made from very soft, very stretchy viscose and bamboo cotton. We’ve made these leggings to be worn under our shorter dresses, tunics and as a layer with items you want a bit of leg coverage with. They work perfectly in summer as they are soft, light and cool, but are also thick enough to work in winter because they can be tucked into your boots and worn with thick socks. We love a good high rise legging around these parts, and these ones are high enough in the waist to tuck your layers into, have a wonderful wide elastic waist band (4cm wide) and will stay up all day long without riding up in the crotch, twisting around or stretching out of shape. We also thought it was very important to have an array of colours to choose from, because it’s never a struggle to find black or navy (although, in our experience they’re usually pretty crap quality!), but colours you actually want to wear on your legs are always a struggle. We have gone for a spectrum of colours which will work with your existing pieces and the new season colours we have in store. They’re perfect as a layer for work as the soft viscose looks dressier than a cotton lycra tight and has full-coverage colour on your legs, unlike stockings.
HOW TO WEAR: Mix and match your leggings by wearing a colour that highlights a colour in the rest of your outfit. Choose a tone that works well with the print you’re wearing, or wear a completely different complimentary tone to add another colour to your outfit. Remember it’s good to wear colours in leggings you may not wear in an outfit normally, as there usually isn’t that much of your leg showing anyway, so it’s good to go something a bit different or maybe a colour you wouldn’t wear near your face, especially in winter when the colours generally veer towards darker tones. We love denim worn with reds, green leggings under blues and pinks, and try some dark tones with lighter coloured dresses and skirts for winter, it’s a great way of getting more wear out of some of your more summery pieces. You can even match your leggings to your cardigan or long sleeve layering tops to have the colour carry through your outfit. The full length of these leggings is great, as the softness of the fabric means they will scrunch up and can be pulled higher on shorter frames, or worn full length at the high ankle on taller ones. A full length legging is always more versatile than a 3/4 length for us because it can never cut your leg at the wrong spot. We love our leggings and have been wearing ours with our Eadie, Jessie and Indigo Dresses and our Jeanie and Sunset skirts. We are so happy to finally free all those people who hate their knees (yep, that’s a problem for lots of our customers) from the limits of long skirts. Embrace a little colour, and go for the layers this winter. Please be aware these leggings are definitely made as a light and soft layering piece, not a thick legging to wear as pants (but really, who does that anyway?).
