After relying on leggings to wear our favorite dresses and skirts all winter, you would think your leggings could be put away. But, these are the most versatile pieces in any women’s wardrobe.
Believe it! You can wear leggings in summer. They can help avoid nasty sunburnt legs and even keep you warm when the sun sets. Anything breathable or light-weight will work well. Stick with a cotton or Lycra blend to stay comfortable without sticking.
Keeping your leggings on the forefront will help you avoid showing off pasty white legs early on in the summer. Pairing your leggings with a sundress or tunic will elongate your legs and hide your lack of tan.
Leggings have been strangely contentious of late and often deemed over revealing or unflattering. Nonsense. FMag has put together a fool-proof guide to wear the form-fitting bottoms and look chic in the process. Who ever thought that a pair of leggings could be so controversial. Last month, an United States blogger Veronica Partridge declared that she would no longer where leggings in public. Her video clip went viral
I would be the first to say that cheap, see-through fabrics have no place in any wardrobe. But leggings should not be dismissed completely. They’re comfortable, flattering and can be easy to style.
So, how do we wear them? Fabric is key. Buy the best quality you can afford. Leggings with a decent fabric wether your traveling or running errands. Anything is better than a thin, baggy, terrible fitting from a $5 bargain bin.
The popularity of leather leggings are on the rise. Not only are they comfortable, but they are extremely flattering. When shopping for leather leggings, look for something high-quality or a convincing faux. Go for a mid-rise, skinny
leg style and wear it with knee or ankle boots. Since leggings can look slightly sexy, style it down a light knit.
Layers also help when styling leggings. Covering the tops of your things with a fun tunic or light knit will take the look from weak to chic. Wear a soft, waistcoat over a shorter T-shit or sheer fabric top underneath a jumper.
Since our leggings are able to stay in our wardrobe, shouldn’t our favorite boots and booties?
What to do with Ankle Boots:
There’s no need to put your ankle boots at the back of your closet. Add a polished touch to a pair of leather leggings by adding a tunic and a statement necklace. If leggings aren’t the way you want to go, then for a soft feminine look, pair your boots with a lightweight sundress.
What to do with Over-the-Knee Boots:
Just because we’ve paired over-the-knee boots with leggings all winter, doesn’t mean they can’t transition into spring. Pair with a light-colored legging and something festive tunic.
What to do with Lace-Up Boots:
Lace-up boots are both comfortable and stylist. Take these to the next level by adding bright colored leggings and a sheer top or a neutral shirt-dress.
