I’ve been a long-time fan of SPANX leggings. (Shana and I even styled them up for the holidays a couple of years ago.) They’re awesome. They suck everything in without being too constricting, and they look soooo much better than your typical workout leggings (yet feel just as comfy). I loved the original faux-leather leggings, and was originally excited for their newer moto version…but after trying them on, something didn’t look right. The horizontal stripes made by the moto pattern weren’t flattering on me.
So. I’ve been waiting for SPANX to come out with a pair that has texture without the horizontal lines of the moto leggings . . . and here they are: the new Hip-Zip Leggings. These are even better than the originals. They’ve quickly become part of my daily uniform (more on that later), and I’ve been wearing them with all the turtlenecks and long sweaters.
top: BP Longline Turtleneck Sweater (wearing xs, also available in plus sizes) I love everything about this sweater . . . the length, the softness and especially the price. (I’ve also been wearing these leggings with my favorite sweater dress.)
boots: Sam Edelman Hai Boots LOVE these boots . . . I’ve been wearing them with everything since I got them.
jacket: Lira Clothing Axel Denim Moto Jacket (wearing XS), this is a denim jacket in an oversized fit that’s perfect for when you just need a light jacket — and I love the black for fall and winter.
On a pretty cool sidenote, the founder of SPANX, Sara Blakely, became the first self-made, female billionaire to sign the Melinda and Bill Gates’ and Warren Buffett’s Giving Pledge, promising to give at least half her wealth to charity. She created the Sara Blakely Foundation in 2006 and has since donated millions to charities around the world, focusing on charities that empower underserved women and girls. (I love that!)
