I LIVE in leggings, and my favourite black pair is just £8.50 right now

These are my MVPs.

Sinophant leggings review

If there's one thing I'd consider myself an expert on, it's leggings. A subtle flex, I know. Having sworn off jeans from the age of about 17 (I like to be comfortable, ok?), I've lived in black leggings for most of my life. The humble legging has a reputation for being basic, but I think they're versatile, nonrestrictive and easy to work with when it comes to planning outfits.

The quandary that all legging lovers face, though, is that not all leggings are created equal. Everyday leggings, especially, are notorious to get right. See-through, losing shape after washing, losing colour over time - all of these are big no-nos. Finding the perfect everyday leggings became somewhat of a life's desire for me (dream big, ladies), and luckily, my quest has come to an end.

I stumbled upon a pair that has beaten out every other one I've tried - yep, including the classic Topshop leggings (RIP) and any pair I've ever bought from ASOS or H&M. Not only are they ultra-dark, they're buttery soft, never lose their shape, don't roll down and hold everything in nicely. Plus, they're on sale right now for just £8.50 on Amazon, AND you can get them delivered next day if you're an Amazon Prime member.

Don't just take my word for it, though; these beauties have over 60,000 ratings, with many happy customers raving about their quality. A pocket version is also available, and they come in loads of different colours, so you can kit out your whole wardrobe if you're that way inclined.
