Fashion Files; Favorite Leggings

I first want to start out this post with something completely unrelated to the Fashion Files. Over the weekend, I was published on PopSugar.

PopSugar is truly my favorite website and really a one-stop shop for whatever you want to read about. It has been my dream for so long to have a byline on there, and this is extra special because it's all about how I've lost 20 pounds since July.

I've mentioned it multiple times on here that I started Weight Watchers in July and it has been quite the life-changing journey. I don't want to be one of those preachy people but if you read the article, you'll see what I mean.

Now that this article is published and I've hit the 20-pound mark, I'll start sharing more about WW on Royally Pink, including lots of recipes that I've found to be a hit. Stay tuned for that!

Let's move onto the purpose of this post... leggings!

I wear leggings every single day. That is not an exaggeration. I wear leggings every day to work and on the weekends. I wear them to the gym and to lounge around my house. The last time I wore jeans was probably 2-3 months ago and that was the first time I wore jeans in MONTHS.

It's not that jeans don't fit me because they do. Even before the 20-pound weight loss I had jeans that fit and looked good and were comfortable. It's just that, leggings are more comfortable.

It's becoming a problem and I guess a little bit of a security blanket; my mom has told me multiple times to wear something besides leggings but I just can't stop.

They are too comfortable and go with everything. They're so versatile so you could dress them up and down. I wear leather leggings and soft leggings and gym leggings -- I just can't get enough.

My love affair with a good pair of leggings is truly taking over my life.

Because of this, I've worn a lot of different pairs and types of leggings, so I definitely have my favorites.



I've talked about my ultimate favorite before and that is definitely the Kate Spade x Beyond Yoga Legging. I have about 4 pairs of them and every time they go on sale, I buy a new pair to stock up on.  They are my go-to for work and play and my most worn by far.



Another pair that I love and have recently rediscovered in my drawer of black leggings is Zella. I only have one pair but they are by far the most comfortable in my collection. They suck you in, make you look thin (almost like comfy Spanx) and don't get too stretchy as the day wears on. I definitely need another pair but I highly recommend looking into Zella. I bought mine at Nordstrom and I think they have the best selection.





Finally, my other favorite brand for leggings is American Eagle. These are my OG leggings and the brand I have/had the most of. They are pretty inexpensive compared to Kate Spade and Zella but the quality is also a little less. These are the leggings that rip on me the most and I've had to throw quite a few pairs out but I also am wearing them every day so wear is a lot more than the usual person.

However, the price outweighs that in my opinion and sometimes you'd rather spend $30 on a pair of leggings you'll wear for a year instead of spending $100, ya know? AEO has so many different types of leggings and you're bound to find something that suits your style.

*My one pair of faux leather leggings are also from AEO and they're so comfy and I need to wear them so much more this winter season.

What are your favorite brands for leggings?
