  • 10 Reasons Why We Love Leggings

    Alright, the debate has been had that leggings can not and should not be considered to be pants. Here at Akinz, we have decided they don’t need to be boxed in! Leggings should be valued for what they are, in a class of their own- flexible, comfortable and functional year round. To set the record straight of why leggings hold their own in this timeless debate, we present you with the 10 reasons why we love leggings.

    1. One ‘fit’ to rule them all
      There is no need for ones labeled “curvy” or “boyfriend fit” because they are designed to hug all those curves in all the right places.
    2. You can throw away your old “fat pants”
      On those days where you have overeaten or the morning after Tour de Fat, there is no need to try to slip into a pair of skinny jeans. Slip on a pair of soft cotton leggings and enjoy your belly being swaddled until the stomach pains go away.
    3. They are adaptable to every shape and size
      True, one size does not fit all. We have all learned that unfortunate lesson from buying the $2 pair off Amazon that were made for tiny girls, but our leggings are 100% USA made, accomodate all sizes and several designs are printed on our very own printing press.
    4. You can wear them anywhere
      Under your snowboard pants, under your favorite summer dress that you want to wear in the winter, to the grocery store, mountain biking, to the movies, anywhere!
    5. Use them to dress up or down
      Leggings are so versatile! You can pair them with our Fireside Hoodie Dress for apres ski drinks or with knee high boots and a blazer for a business casual look. They are not just for yoga anymore…
    6. They were made for brunching
      Brunch and leggings were designed with the high class lazy people of the world in mind. You’re not late for breakfast and wearing workout clothes, you’re at brunch in your best leggings. Get it straight.
    7. They make packing easy
      Great things come in small packages, right? Instead of packing bulky pairs of jeans, a couple pairs of leggings will enable you to actually fit all of your things into a carry on bag for your adventure.
    8. They can be an act of self expression
      Thinking about getting a leg tattoo? Try out the Fly Away Compression Yoga Leggings that can show you just how great it would accentuate your upper thigh. Feeling cosmic, try our moisture-wicking Galaxy Yoga Leggings!
    9. They aren’t jeans
      Jeans can be stiff, uncomfortable and you always find yourself having to cover the top of your tush. Leggings don’t wrinkle, don’t take two dryer cycles to still come out kinda-sorta dry and you don’t have to spend time trying on 32 different sizes to find the right fit.
    10. They are your entire wardrobe
      You can wear the same pair all week and no one will ever notice as long as you switch up your top!
