I am always in search for the perfect legging.

They are a fashion staple that go with everything. The trick is to find ones that are thick enough and made well. A major fashion no-no are wearing see-through leggings – no matter what your body shape is – they just make you look sloppy.

So when I was given the opportunity to team up with svelte – it peaked my interest.

Ordinarily I don’t use shapewear products. I have an active lifestyle so I don’t really need them. But, when I was browsing the leggings – they looked more like an athleisure brand.

Clothes should be a source of confidence, not stress, they should work with your body, not against it.

Elegant Simplicity

I wanted something that was fitted – so I could wear them with an over-sized tee or casual sweater. Something that would show off my shape and look stylish.

I was also looking for something durable enough that I could wear to the gym – something with super stretchy fabric that would move with me but be comfortable. I didn’t want something that I would have to keep adjusting during intense activities.

I chose the Tight Ankle Leggings it is a cotton/spandex blend in black – click here to check them out.

One of my pet peeves of online shopping is that there isn’t enough details for items. The svelte site offers: styling options, sizing charts, garment care and fabric information – which I loved. There is no shortage of product information – they offer answers to any questions you might have.

I have worn my leggings a couple of times – with a casual outfit as well as to the gym. The leggings offer light control so they aren’t constricting at all – they are super comfortable.

Fabric, fit and style working together.

What I like most about them is the thickness of the material -it gives a polished and stylish look. I think it’s important to look your best – whether it is going to run errands or going to the gym.

Remember – your style speaks before you do. So make a unforgettable first impression.
