Plain and simple, leggings are a way of life.
While they are marketed as an essential activewear style, I wear them more than I actually work out. Does anyone else put on a pair in the morning thinking it will motivate them to break a sweat after work? But if you’re like me, you ditch the workout because you just want to stay comfy while watching TV on the couch with said leggings until bedtime.
Since I take leggings seriously, it’s important to me to buy versatile silhouettes that I can wear in and out of the gym. My current favorite? Aerie’s Offline Real Me High Waisted Crossover Flare Legging. They have the same flattering crossover waistband and buttery soft material as the brand’s standard crossover legging that went viral on TikTok, but these have a trendy flare bottom! If you haven’t heard, flare leggings and pants are back in style!
I love how I can wear these to yoga, but I can also throw on a sweater and booties and wear them to dinner with friends. And as someone who is on the shorter side, I usually have a difficult time finding flattering flare pants, but these leggings sculpt my legs and accentuate my waistline like no other.
