Hello, my name is Amy and I wear fitness leggings as normal pants. No, my office is not really that informal, but I use my job as a fitness editor as an excuse to wear more active clothing than I should. Every day I do not have to wear jeans or a Manhattan sluggish dress is a good day. On the weekends, I put my leggings "lounging around the house" right in my leggings "Out of the Street" as I go to the lucrative of my apartment for errands or meetings with friends for lunch. Basically, I imagine something like a leggings expert, if it's a title that a person could hold.
Since then, my job as a fitness editor has been to learn about all the new activity and sports opportunities in the marketplace and what it's worth to recommend to our readers, I've tested my share of leggings. I probably sweated in at least 100 different leggings, and at some point I had that many sat in my flat . (Please do not ask my husband about it, it's a painful topic.) Apart from having the unique and very specific opportunity to discover in a leggings exactly what I like most, according to the activity I do I also learned to deeply appreciate the power of a large pair of black leggings.
Usually I'm not a " all black all " guy, but black leggings are really versatile. They are like the little black dress of the world of active wear. Black blends so well with most of my sports bras, tanks, sneakers and sweatshirts. I also feel safer in black than in contrast to a pattern of light that will betray me if I become sweaty or (God forbids) in the end more transparent than I had planned. Colorful and patterned options are fun, and I wear them, but not nearly as often as I wear a solid black leggings.
Over the years, I've stuck to a handful of black leggings that I love most, and while the list keeps evolving, there are a few staples that I regularly turn to. Not All My favorite leggings are black – I wear many more pairs than just the options listed below (for example, when I run, I usually wear pants specifically designed for this sport), but these are All-Black Couples I always have to fall for when I have to grab something quickly without thinking about it.
Black leggings are reliable. Especially the couples down below have never let me down, which is why I keep putting them on and recommending them wholeheartedly to anyone still looking for this great pair of black leggings.
One thing I'd like to mention: As a tall woman, I realize that it's much easier for me to find leggings that fit my body than many other people. While some of the leggings increase up to 3 times, it is more difficult than usual to find the included clothing options, especially in sportswear. Some mass brands are slowly but surely expanding their size range, and many new and wonderful size apparel sizes have been introduced in recent years (see 19459005) recommending these 40 oversized brands our Big Fit Girl columnist, trainer Louise Green), but there is still a long way to go before this issue.
