I feel my very best when I’m wearing comfortable clothing. Seriously, who wouldn’t, right? But unlike jeans, leggings have become the absolute go-to wardrobe item most people reach for these days. I for one am late to this trend for many reasons until now…In my humble opinion, leggings are something you would normally wear either at home or to your yoga sesh. I’ve seen people of all shapes and sizes EVERYWHERE in leggings. The grocery store, places of worship, parent-teacher conferences, to a dinner, etc. I’m all about body positivity and self love but honestly, some of these people should not be let loose wearing these things. I can not even begin to tell you how disturbing it is to encounter people wearing leggings that are either super thin (every crevice can be seen through the fabric) or leggings that are two sizes smaller than their body can hold! I’ve had to do double takes!
When Talbots reached out to me to try a pair of their pants from the new fall collection I immediately knew what I wanted/needed. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of leggings and I finally found them. Leggings that I could wear without fear of showing my wide hips and butt dimples to the world while strutting around town. I’m here to tell ya that Talbots’ Soho Leggings are the IT leggings!To begin, these modern, go-everywhere leggings are incredibly soft. I was legit surprised by how soft they feel. The material is somewhat thick but not too thick that it’s burdensome. They’re also high waisted which in my case helps with tucking things in. The sculpting fabric shapes and smooths while hiding some of my imperfections helping me look chic!
Normally I wear ‘regular’ in all of my wardrobe pieces and these Soho Leggings are my true size but I found them too long for my height. I’m not sure if I shrunk in the past year or if these are just on the longer end of the scale for regular sizing. I really do love these and I even ordered another pair but I’m getting them in a petite. Hopefully I won’t have to tug on them when I wear them. So if you’re 5’5″ and under, I recommend trying a petite size first. Aside from the sizing fluke, these leggings are amazing and will style nicely with just about anything you want to pair them with.
These leggings are great for the office, daytime or evening wear, depending on your mood and will be a great fall item to have in your wardrobe. They’d look great with a tunic shirt, an oversized sweater, boots and cute loafers. Any way you choose to style them, they won’t let you down. People may do a double take but for all the right reasons. 😉
