The perfect black legging
T-shirts, slim trousers and blazers have all been on the receiving end of the high-end treatment but one item has always seemed elusive amongst these remodelled basics. Soft, well-made, & high quality leggings. The comfy kind that looks great under a oversized blouse and are affordable. So imagine our glee here at Your Coffee Break when we discovered Venus Cow leggings. Perfectly cut in the softest jersey, they fit like a glove and achieve that holy grail of leggings; remaining flawlessly opaque from your ankles right up to your waist and most importantly, across your derrière.
A former city worker, Venus Cow founder Shirley Yanez set up her brand after losing it all and rediscovering the importance of high quality products that see you through thick and thin. “My dream was to design a lifestyle collection of stylish Made in England staples to fill the gap for women with real bodies.”
The Venus Cow “Perfect Black Legging” launches officially next week at the Clothes Show Live but Your Coffee Break were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the product. Despite being a sartorial must-have, time and time again we’ve found ourselves disappointed with leggings that refuse to last beyond a few wears and washes. A quick poll in the Your Coffee Break offices revealed that top vexes with leggings were a poor fit and the tendency to become thin and see through, so the “Perfect Black Leggings” soon became the best leggings in the city.
Designed and made here in the UK, Shirley’s focus is all about creating products with the highest possible quality, and the “Perfect Black Leggings” with their excellent fit and luxurious feel achieve exactly that. With the festive period upon us, with weeks of indulgence ahead we’re certain that the comfort of our “PBL’s” will ensure they’re the favourite items in our wardrobes. We’ll be pairing ours with an embellished tunic and gutsy heels for a sophisticated alternative to party dresses and layered with cute knits and oversized shirts for some much needed R&R at home.
The Perfect Black legging is available at www.venuscow.co.uk for £30.
