After the fab advice earlier, what is the lowdown on Leggings? Boden used to do great long life ones but are there other brands that wash well and last?

Also I am trying to refresh my capsule wardrobe, have M&S jeggings in a few colours, boden stripy bretons, boyfriend cardigans and need leggings and tunics. Any good buys to recommend? Thank you!

The best leggings I've had were from Warehouse I think, but that was years ago. Bought some from there recently and they weren't as good <not helpful>. I also like Next and M&S.

I read some good advice on here re capsule wardrobe re colours; stick to neutrals plus a couple of other colours. I think some people choose colours which complement each other so everything goes together. I couldn't realistically do that as I had a lot of a few colours which don't really 'go', so I have reduced my wardrobe to neutrals plus purple / royal blue and red / orange. It is now tiny! I am very smug about it actually and may have spent an evening arranging it in colour order <preens> need to get out more grin. Sorry that's not really what you asked was it? Just wanted an excuse to tell people about my new small wardrobe.
