Wardrobe Staple

Just a quick post to tell you about a wardrobe staple I discovered when in Barcelona this summer.

Ever worn these?

Hue Denim Leggings - This is the curvy style, but there are numerous styles and washes to choose from...
Alas, they don't come with that ass.

At any rate, I found these at El Corte Ingles, a mid-range Spanish department store (which is so much better than any mid-range Canadian department store), having never noticed them in Canada before. I decided, since I've been doing the skinnies since @ 1978, that I might as well give them a try. I mean, at 50 bucks (style and vendor depending), they cost much less than a pair of yoga pants from Lulu Lemon.

I can tell you, having now bought 2 additional pairs (available at the Bay), in diff washes but still skinny, that these things save my butt multiple times a week. First off, they're freakin' leggings, so I feel like I'm wearing pajamas. Secondly, the rise is high, so I don't get muffin top. Thirdly, the proprietary stretch denim, used to make these things, is totally awesome. They're both denim and leggings all at the same time - but they look 100 per cent like jeans. And finally, you can wear all of your long-ish figure skimming tops minus the ruinous look of a belt.

You will never find less pricey, more comfortable pants than these. And they're chic with your boots!

Really, just go out and buy them and then tell me what you think.


  1. These sound totally up my alley! No fabric to stretchy, no pull on jean too high for me! ;)

  2. I want to try them on. Maybe next time income down to the big city you can take this country bumpkin on a shopping trip?

  3. Len's Mills had a sign out about Hue leggings. Sadly all the denim ones were sized for twigs, but I am currently wearing a pair of velour Hue leggings and they sure are comfortable. I don't think they are leaving the house much, but they were also $20.
