15 Pairs of Leggings to Take You From Fireside to Fancy Fête

The path to the perfect pair of leggings has never been a smooth one, with awkwardly slashed spandex and hideous lace numbers threatening our every step (don't even get us started on the one-wear sag syndrome). This time around, we've navigated the Big Bad World of Disappointing Legwear for you to prove, yes, indeed, there are some perfect pairs to be had. No longer the stuff of '80s music videos, the best of the season's leggings are fit for almost any occasion, from after-hours in glam velvet to fireside in cozy fairisle.
