Kendall Jenner and I Agree: These Are the Most Flattering Black Leggings

Ask me what the most flattering pair of black leggings I own are, and I'd say (without hesitation) Alo's High Waist Airbrush Leggings. I'll admit that I've amassed quite a collection of leggings in recent years, but I always find myself reaching for the Alo pair. In that respect, Kendall Jenner and I seem to be on the same wavelength. Jenner has been wearing this particular pair of Alo leggings since the whole legging craze first began. Sure, she's a supermodel, but at 5'4", I am not, yet I can attest that they make my legs like five times as long as they are and are as slimming as leggings come.

The hallmarks of a pair of flattering leggings, in my opinion, are an ultra-high waist, compressing fabric, and a no-seam construction. This particular pair of Alo leggings has all of that and more (i.e. comfort). To complete her chill legging outfit while in New York this week, Jenner wisely chose an oversize sweatshirt and a pair of cool Adidas sneakers that she may have just convinced me to buy.
