Diva's Fashion Guide: How to Wear Leggings
I came across this pictorial on Pinterest pinned by Mall of Style, and thought it was so needed! Now that fall is here, we want to be comfy and cozy. Leggings are a big part of that equation. HOWEVER, leggings can go wrong really quickly. Believe it or not, not all leggings are made the same and quality is key. Here are some tips on how to wear leggings.
1. All Leggings Cannot Replace Pants
THEY.CAN.NOT. Some leggings are so sheer that you can see your panties through them. Not cute! Plus, how do you expect to stay warm in those? Choose thicker, firmer, more opaque fabrics if you're going to wear a leggings as pants paired with a shorter top.
2. Opt for Fleece
Choose fleece lined leggings to wear with your fall and winter gear to keep you warm in the winter months. NOTE: Walgreens has these options for 2 for $10!
3. Liquid Leggings
Liquid leggings in a thicker fabric can jazz up a look. Pair with heels for a night on the town.
4. Cover the Holes
Many styles have these intricate hole details. Pair with a long tunic shirt for an edgy, but not risque look.
5. Pair with Skirts and Dresses
Fun legging under skirts and dresses can amp up a look.
6. Quality over Quantity
I've said this many time before on this blog. Just apply it to your entire life (lol). If your leggings are unwearable after a few uses, opt for a better quality fabric. I still have my fleece leggings for last season. Sometimes the extra bucks are worth it.
Use the pictorial above for reference, and stay fab!
