By now, we all know that leggings are a wardrobe must-have and an essential part of our 2020 uniform. However, there are some occasions where leggings just aren’t appropriate - no matter how comfortable or how expensive they are.
Luckily, there’s an affordable alternative that provides all the comfort and support of leggings while adding just enough polish to your day-to-day ensemble that it won’t look like you’re on your way to the gym: the Skinny Stretch Pull-on Knit Jegging by Amazon Essentials.
SHOP IT: Amazon, from $26
What are they?
Yes - you read that correctly! Amazon’s in-house jeggings have earned a loyal following online for combining the comfort of a legging with the look and feel of a casual, tailored pant.
These pull-on, cotton/polyester blend knit leggings hold their shape helping you avoid bagging or sagging throughout the day. Designed to look like an everyday trouser, these jeggings feature faux-front pockets, functional back pockets and a belt loop detail that instantly elevate any look.
Amazon designed their jeggings with one secret detail that has earned rave reviews from customers: tummy support. Each pair of jeggings features a built-in smoothing pane; a kind of discreetly built-in shape wear that helps smooth your silhouette.
What people are saying
Amazon customers have a lot to say about these knit jeggings. With more than 4,300 customer reviews, customers have called these an affordable and comfortable alternative to jeans.
“The pants are exactly as described. They are extremely comfortable and launder beautifully. I am thrilled with them,” one shopper wrote. “I have worn and washed them at least a dozen times since I purchased them. They did not shrink or stretch out. I will re-order another pair.”
“Look like jeans, feel like pyjamas! If these hold up in the wash I am totally getting more,” another wrote. “Best pandemic pants ever. They do seem to run a bit larger than other jeans but that only makes them better!”
If you’re looking for a happy medium between jeans and leggings, these knit jeggings might be for you. Amazon’s Essential jeggings come in 11 different colours, including a light wash denim, classic black and casual-cool camouflage. They’re perfect for anyone who wants a little more stretch and day-to-day comfort without compromising style.
