Ah, leggings. How they’ve saved our lives so many times. Those days you don’t quite fit into your skinny jeans, those times you desperately wanted a reason to wear that dress during the coldest months of winter, and basically any time you want to look cute without too much fuss. While every wardrobe should contain a staple black pair, like this one by David Lerner, sometimes it’s fun to add some colors and patterns to the mix. That being said, when you do purchase classic black leggings, make sure they fit, and the elastic doesn’t move around too much. Nothing more unsightly than seeing a girl yank up her leggings every 20 minutes. Here are some other options to choose from:
Jeggings Half leggings/half jeans. These are great if you love the look of jeans but enjoy the versatility of leggings. Nowadays they’re available with intricate stitching patterns, make-believe pockets, and different washes, to make them look as denim-believable as can be. Try this one by Indigo.
Brights. Pull a Rihanna and crank up the volume with some fuschia action. Take a look at this one from Rikanna. Caution: please wear with either a black or white top to avoid looking like an extra in Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical.” Worn correctly, these pop-out styles can really make you look fabulous.
Lace has been so big this year and for good reason. It’s feminine, sexy, and really gives that certain something extra to your look. These by Papillon Blanc, would look great paired with black ankle booties, to really give you that romantic feel.
Most pair up their leggings with a long shirt, but bold ladies who love showing off their shape can pair them up with shorter tops too. As for matching footwear, that’s another leggings bonus: they go with just about anything, except bulky flats, which might give off the appearance of clown feet. Besides that, feel free to wear some heels to dress up the look, or of course, the winter essential, snug boots from Australia that rhyme with the word ‘Mug.’
At these amazing prices, feel free to stock up on a few and have one leg up on the competition.
