“ Brand: Next „
I buy a lot of different patterns of leggings from a lot of different shops and these have to be in the top 5 of leopard print legging patterns I've seen for a reasonable price. A lot of them tend to look too orange or very cheap, these don't. Next leggings are some of the longest lasting as well, I often get little bits of elastic poking out or patchy looking leggings after a few washes/wears but these haven't shown any signs of stress yet. Another good thing about these leggings is I'm fairly tall and leggings don't always stretch as long as my legs do, these fit with a little slack around the ankle. Good quality for a reasonable price in my opinion! Only slight downfall was I had an itchy bit on my label but a friend of mine said she didn't have the same problem!
Next Animal Print Leggings
I don't generally wear leggings out and about, I tend to throw them on when I'm having a lazy day or after a gym session to lounge about the house in. I bought myself a pair of Next's animal print leggings as a treat a month or so ago, just because no one is going to see them doesn't mean I need to neglect style!
The leggings are pretty standard to look at; they have two leg slots with an elasticated waistband and are designed to fit snugly against your legs and hips. The leggings are made with 95 % viscose and 5 % elastane, which is what makes them so clingy. The leggings are stitched together on the inside legs and up the front and back of the hip area, meaning that it is well disguised and you don't see any odd patterning. The leggings are a long length and go to just below ankle length.
So the pattern of these leggings as the title suggests is animal print, more precisely leopard print! They come in two colours, silver/grey like a snow leopard and golden, I went for the latter, my favourite type of print. The leopard spots are really nice and irregular shapes rather than looking repetitive and 'fake' so to speak, which I really like about them. There's nothing worse than a boring flat leopard print pattern.
Wearing the leggings is great, they are nice and comfy and flexible, as leggings should be. They are also quite thick and so warmer than other pairs I have bought and worn.
The leggings also come in petite and tall sizes for comfort and to compensate for height differences, as well as the standard sizes 6 - 18. Next animal print leggings are quite pricey at £14 a pair, however they are very good quality and thicker than leggings I have bought before, so good for the winter and feel like they will last.
