It seems like I have been on a hunt my entire life for the perfect pair of black leggings. It has taken almost fifteen years, but I have found some that are not only perfect, but they are also super affordable!

Why are these the perfect black leggings?

I’m glad you asked! A few months back I finally broke down and purchased some lululemon leggings. I wanted to hate them, but I actually love them. As a matter of fact, I still love them! I wear leggings for comfort not for working out, so I could not justify stocking my wardrobe with $100 leggings that I just wear to Target.

I was browsing Forever 21 to pick up some new socks, and I came across these leggings that looked like they would be a great option so I tried them out. BIG NEWS, they have become my new favorite black leggings, and I cannot get over it.

What are they?

The Active High-Waisted Leggings from Forever 21 have taken over my life. I wear them constantly! I picked up two pairs before my recent trip to Disney because I wanted to just be comfortable. I wish I had picked up more so I could have worn them every day. To be honest, I enjoyed them more than my Lulu leggings.

They are incredibly thick material, and they really hold you in. I wore them at Disney for hours and I never had to pull them up, and I never felt like they were squeezing me too tight. Basically, they are the perfect pair of leggings, and they are UNDER $15. In case you’re wondering, yes, I have purchased more since!

    Oh that sounds so great!!! I definitely need new black leggings, but most of them seem to cost way to much for such a simple thing. Thanks for sharing it 🙂
