In my opinion, I have the best job in the world – I get to wear activewear all day, everyday! Everyone knows that my style is always long black leggings, some sort of oversized jumper or jersey, paired with a leather jacket or my marl winter coat. Instead of 10 pairs of jeans, I own about 20 pairs of leggings! Most of them black with subtle details – mesh, pops of colour and prints. Why always black? I’ll tell you why…
They go with everything
Fail-safe, you can pair them with colourful kicks, slouchy sweaters, or bombers with strong prints. LBL’s go with everything, making them the staple and most versatile piece in your active wardrobe.
They make your legs look great
You can always count on your faithful LBL’s to make your legs look super long and super toned. A few of my favourites are designs which actually suck you in to give you sleek pins, like the Jaggad Compression Leggings or Nimble Alanna Leggings. I always feel comfortable enough to rock into the (mostly male dominated) weights section at the gym in my LBL’s.
They’ll never go out of fashion
Yep, black will never die, and neither will your fave pair of LBL’s. With this in mind, it’s always a good idea to invest in good quality ones, because you know you’ll just live in them for many years to come!
They aren’t see-through
Good quality LBL’s are never see through, making dead lifts and squats that much more doable. No need to care who’s standing behind you, you can smash out your workout with 100% confidence.
Your always gym and street ready with your staple LBL’s
Let’s face it, even if you aren’t as lucky as me to wear activewear to work, you probably live in it on the weekends? Well if you’re like me, you do! I need activewear that will see me to my morning gym class straight to brunch, and LBL’s do just that.
The year-round active staple… Which ones do you have your eye on at the moment? My all time favourites are: Lilybod Coco Luxe, Alo Yoga High Waisted Moto, Jaggad Compression, Nimble Alanna Mesh and P.E Nation Corner Back.
