Jodhpurs and breeches are great for in the saddle, right? The problem is, when we leave the yard and rush off to pick up the shopping they’re also great at catching the attention of puzzled passers-by (we maintain it’s nothing to do with the hay filled hair-do)! So, more and more of us are choosing subtler options like tights and leggings. Lightweight, flexible, practical and above all else comfortable, these are designed to be great for all-day wear. Here we’re going to be taking a look at our favourite options, as at home in the gym or at the shops as they are at the yard.
Let’s kick off with our best value picks. First and foremost, what were we looking for? Well, value doesn’t just mean a low cost! After-all, if they need replacing every 5 minutes then they aren’t good value at all! So, we picked these terrific tights because they’re the perfect combination of affordable and great quality.
