The Perfect Legging at Ella

Folks flock to Ella Where She Shops for easy sportswear pieces, casual dresses and store manager Carol’s expert opinion. New this season at Ella is Prana, the well known yoga collection that can be sported as easily outside the studio as in. But what I liked best are these indispensable Lysse leggings. True, a legging isn’t the most exciting fashion item, but when you find a good one, buy two (see my Ten Shopping Tips here). What’s so great about these? Everything! The medium weight ponte knit hides all manner of imperfections, while the front seam slims the leg. A double layer of fabric at the tummy sucks you in and they come in all the right colors for fall: heather charcoal, heather brown (that reads a bit on the maroon side) and black. Or go for this zippered ankle version, a nod to the motorcycle trend. By Lysse from $68 to $74, sizes small through XL. Say you saw it on The E List and take 20% off one pair of leggings through 9/17.
