Advantages: Comfy, durable, look great, decent price!
Ankle length leggings with an elasticated waste. They're a simple style and not much different from any other brand of leggings available. Topshop's leggings do however come in a variety of different styles, including cut-offs (these come down just below the knee) and high waisted leggings. This particular style is my favourite as they look like tight black jeans/trousers, and although many people think that leggings are slobby, when matched with the right outfits and shoes, they look great, for example, i'd never dream of wearing leggings with a baggy t shirt and flats like most people do (each to there own!), and i usually pair mine with heels and a nice fitted top, which is long enough to cover my bum as i don't like the idea of every detail of my bum bein on show, as they're tight and cling to every lump and bump! Another option is to wear them underneath a pair of shorts or a skirt, but i don't bother with this as i prefer bare legs when wearing shorts/skirts. I love the style and these are an essential in my wardrobe.
Comfort and Durability:
Most people will think when seeing 'Topshop' and 'leggings' in the same sentence, "Why would i buy topshop leggings when i can nip down my local primarni and pick some up for pennies?" The awnser is simple. Quality. They don't stretch out, they don't become holey and ragged after a few weeks and most importantly they're comfy but not so much so that they feel like pj's. They're easy to slip on, keep there shape and are nice and discreet. They're fine to wear throughout the day and even in the hot weather the material doesn't get sweaty and yucky like the lower quality leggings. They're a soft material with a silky, thick nylon feel to them and to be honest don't add a huge amount of warmth so it's probably better to wear them during the warmer weather, or under jeans to add warmth in the winter.
I have dogs, one of which is yellow, and i used to find that my leggings would be ruined by her fur that had malted, but these are able to be machine washed and the hair comes off fine.
Various Others - Will depend on your local topshop's stock but i'd reccomend going and having a look! Online there seems to be only black available at the moment.
UK 6-16. I find topshop are very accurate with there sizing and a size 8 fits me perfectly - i've had a pair of similar priced leggings from Matalan in a size 8 and they were falling off me!
95% Viscose and 5% Elastane. Machine washable.
Price and Value:
£12. I don't go mad buying loads of these as i find that one pair will last plenty of time so i feel that £12 is a great price considering the quality and amount of wear i get out of a pair. To be fair, £12 for something with a Topshop label is pretty cheap!
Overall reccomended! Can't really fault them - comfy, look good, high quality.
