I love pairing leggings with long sweaters and high top boots in the Fall and Winter. It is so cozy and easy to dress up for work or dress down for a weekend get-together. Being 5’0 tall makes it hard to find leggings that are the perfect length. I have a pair of Zella leggings that I love but they are more appropriate for working out or a sportier look. Plus, they fit a bit longer on me so they bunch up at my ankles which can make it hard to wear with boots. I also have a pair of Lululemon leggings (which are so great!) and fit really well. They aren’t too long so they don’t bunch up as much at the bottom which makes it easier to pair with boots.

So at this point, I have 2 pairs of leggings I rotate my outfits with during the Fall/Winter. And recently I found a new pair that beat both the Zella and the Lululemon leggings – let me introduce you to the Aritzia Leggings. They are absolutely perfect. I wore them on our cruise last week, multiple times, and they were a) super comfortable, b) just the right length, and c) make me feel skinny (always a win!).  I wore them at our first port, Ketchikan, Alaska – we walked around the entire day, went to a lumberjack show, and just explored the city. It was one of my favorite little towns! I highly recommend these for those of you that are 5’2 and under. For those of you who are taller than 5’2, I’d recommend Zella leggings (hands down).

What are your favorite leggings?

    Hi there! I just checked the details out on the Aritzia Equator legging, and it says the model in the picture is 5’9 wearing a size Small – since i’m also a 5’0 girl, just want to make sure those are the ones that you had good length luck with? Thanks!
