We love leggings here at Fashion Bust because they are so versatile. They are comfy for slouching around or working out in and you can easily dress them up as well with a pair of heels or boots and a pretty dress or blazer. Plus, they are a great transition item of clothing for those changeable in-between season moments.
But for all that we love leggings, one thing we can’t stand is a worn and shiny pair that ends of showing a little more than you intended – you know what we mean. Cheap leggings look like cheap leggings, and that’s not attractive.
It’s not a problem that Hey Jo has, however. This British brand offers sportswear luxe leggings in two lines that are anything but cheap, and is introducing three new colours to its already wide range this season.
The brand uses the finest Italian jersey that features all the functionality of high-end sportswear – breathable, quick drying, anti-chaffing, muscle control – and yet these are fashion leggings as well as leisure garments, coming in a range of great colours and featuring luxury details such as gold ankle zips. Celebrity fans include Cara Delevingne, Sienna Miller and Gywneth Paltrow.
Hey Jo leggings also offer great shape retention – no more bagging at the knees – which means they’ll last and last and are perfect for travelling as they’ll be comfortable for long periods without losing their shape after hours sitting down.
This season’s three new colour are bright Miami pink (our favourite), mink and camel, which join a range that already includes blue, yellow, orange and red alongside more neutral shades.
The leggings come in two lines, deluxe Cassini available in 14 shades and costing £145 per pair, and Classic, which come in six colours and cost £105 for a pair. Both lines are sized from XXS-L and they are available to buy from Hey Jo or stockists such as Net-a-Porter.
But the really exciting news is that we will be launching a giveaway to win a pair of these fantastic leggings in a new season shade very soon, so watch this space…
