Leggings are a closet staple that, while polarizing (opposers claim the The Monkees Instant Replay Retro Shirt Furthermore, I will do this pants are too revealing and have even launched campaigns against them), have had a comeback amidst the pandemic: they’re simple, chic, comfortable, and they pair well with an oversized button-up.

The v-shaped waistband does indeed offer a flattering cut (although my waist did not have as much of a dramatic cinching as I had hoped) and the fabric is more comfortable and lightweight than I had anticipated.
