Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

Can anyone of you fashion-savvy ladies suggest places where I could find a pair of those leggings (come in different colours, either ankle length or stop just below the knee)?

Tried H&M, Zara, Manor and Jelmoli to no avail. It could be that I was looking in the wrong place and that, together with a crippling lack of patience when it comes to clothes shopping, meant I probably missed them.

Found some in the Jelmoli sports section but I don't really want them shiny black with a Nike tick on the bottom of them and look a bit too sporty for the tops with which I would wear them.

Yendl, Clockhouse (C&A) and Chicorree should have them.
(Are you sure you want that look, Ms Grounder?)

H&M have lots of them in (well they did last time i looked) also try the tights section there are lots of thick denier footless tights about at the moment in different colours

Thanks. Yep, should be okay - the wafty, flouncy top covers a multitude of things that shouldn't be there.

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

Although I'm not in Zürich, I've noticed that often different shops for the same store will have slightly different inventory so if you have more than one C&A, Chicorree or H&M that are within a reasonable shopping area for you, it may be worth your while to visit them all.

Meanwhile, my mum-in-law does a lot of catalog shopping and buys a good bit of her stuff from bonprix (they have website www.bonprix.ch) and after having ordered a thing or two from them myself, it seems an ok option.

I happen to be a "touchy-feely" person and prefer to check the feel of fabrics but I've found that catalog to be a pretty good option for picking up hard-to-find items.

Meanwhile... I believe they do have leggings available currently.

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

H&M does have them, but they are often hiding in the "junior" or more sporty section of the store. Also try American Apparel--they have quite a lot in various colors, are super-comfy and quite cheap.

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

Try H&M Limmatquai... they seem to have more legwear than the other downtown branches.

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

I popped into the H&Ms on Bahnhofstrasse yesterday looking for a belt, and only saw black and white leggings, with sizes suitable for a 15 year old.

Globus has a wide selection though! Good luck.

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

Leggins are like .. (what are Rüebli-Hosen called in English please? carrot-shaped jeans?).. they make your ass look big and your legs look short. You may have a really good shape but it still doesn't flatter you. What about a miniskirt Sandgrounder and meeting up for a coffee ?

I'm not quite on a par with those ladies but the lady on the right has exactly the right beige colour I am looking for.

Be careful the beige doesn't look too much like your skin colour. Or else, from afar, you'll look bottom nude.

Only if you don't have as impeccable a taste of styling as me:



Alright, alright, I won't be wearing any skirts and no more leggings for you ladies, deal ?

Re: Leggings in Zurich (clothing)

Apparently, leggings are selling better than ever during this recession:

If I had legs like those, I'd be wearing them under a blouson too 'coz they feel so comfy and light.
