1x3: The Best Leggings Ever

This not an exaggeration: These are the Best Leggings Ever. 

(and no, I'm not being paid to say this)

I've sworn off shopping for a year, so I'm relying on my basics working hard, and boy, do these deliver:

These leggings have structure and stretch. You can wear them all day, and still count on them to hold their shape through drinks and dinner. I wear these all. the. time. Another staple that I pair with them often is a silk tunic. Here's how I make this classic combo work three different ways:

Work

Uneasy about wearing leggings to work? You should be. Leggings are not universal; do not wear your Lululemon leggings to work.

These work for work because of their structure and their thick material.

Night

You know I love a crop top, and they are not just for summer or sluts.

They are great for layering! Shed your blazer, layer a crop, roll your sleeves, switch to your favorite booties, and this outfit just went day job to drinks in 2 minutes flat.

Day

 I know, I know... Sweaters are getting shorter this spring, but trust me, this long lean shape is a classic and a short sweater with leggings is only for the truly brave- or models off-duty. Do not be a slave to trends. Pull out the long sweater you bought 3 years ago and  layer it up for cool spring Saturdays or travel days.
