Most women will have at least one pair of plain black leggings in their wardrobe. If not then those ladies do not know what they are missing. The ultimate in versatility the black legging can be worn with long tops, short tops, dresses, skirts, boots, the list is endless.
A black legging should be a cut and sew garment and a woman should be able to wear it without it showing her underwear. However, a number of manufacturers are known to call a garment a legging when they are actually a footless tight. Even though they are thick, sometimes up to 300 denier, they are still not a true black legging unless they have been cut from fabric and then sewn together. If they are knitted in a traditional way such as leg wear is then they are not a true legging.
Young women love the idea of fashion and at present shiny leggings are really in vogue. They give the legs a good look and elongate them to some extent. In order that this might be achieved then the more shiny the better.
Black leggings are for women of all ages but they are mainly bought by women from the age of 16 to 60. This is not to say that a more mature woman should not be seen in leggings as they are a comfortable and easy to wear product and are somewhat timeless.
Plain black leggings can vary so much in both style and quality as well as fabric and design. You can buy black leggings in a simple black fabric with a matte finish or you can seek out the fashionista’s of this world and buy them in black with shiny snake skin prints or leopard prints etc. Clearly, they only remain a black legging if they remain all black but then there are many manufacturers who add patterns to a plain black legging and keep the colour black at the same time.
