The age-old argument of choosing comfort over style or sacrificing comfort to look good is dead. Why not choose both?
After chatting to the guys from Pamela Mann at LondonEdge this September, they very kindly sent me a pair of their Metallica Scary Guy leggings which they had on display at the show!* These are so comfortable and fit perfectly – I’m a standard size 12 but sometimes I find a discrepancy between medium and large sizes – the medium ones fit great on me.
I’ve been a metal fan for as long as I can remember and I’m always repping band tees and jumpers, but I’ve never owned a pair of band leggings before so that’s a first! I caught Metallica’s set at Download 2012 playing the Black album in full and I’ve had a new-found respect for the band ever since.
Here I can be found in my natural habitat – lounging around on my sofa and chilling out to the max.
One thing I have found with these leggings is the colour runs a lot lighter on them than the picture shows on their website – while they look pretty dark on the website, in real life they run much more pale. However, they’re pretty thick for leggings so there’s no issue with them going see-through and being able to see my pants – much as I don’t have any qualms with showing my pants off, it’s not always appropriate for a Sunday morning!
I love a good pair of tights/patterned trousers to spice up an outfit – I’m currently all over fishnets and I’m so glad they’re on trend right now because I love them.
I styled these leggings with this lace-up front shirt from New Look, a silver jacket I got from Zara when I went to New York and my fave H&M burgundy platforms. I also added my Brave Soul burgundy jumper because knitwear is life and I’m so ready to dive face-first into knitwear season. I love these platforms because there’s no heel to them, they’re just flat and high so not only do they loo absolutely great but they’re some of the comfiest shoes I own.
Plus, the jumper goes with them perfectly and I do enjoy a good matching outfit.
As a tall gal at 5″10 I was also slightly worried that they’d be too short because most trousers of any kind run short on me, but the length is great – they’re ankle length even on me, so I can tuck them into boots with no worries.
So here I am on a chill Sunday morning choosing comfort AND style thanks to Pamela Mann.
The Metallica Scary Guy leggings can be found here for £23.99 and are available in sizes S-XXL.
