What to Love About Leggings

black leggings
In the world of pants, leggings fall somewhere between sweats and jeans. They are as comfy as your favorite yoga pants but can still be worn to work (depending on your field or dress code). Leggings can also be inexpensive. I choose black and I haven’t paid more than $6 per pair for my leggings. You can find inexpensive ones at Old Navy, Target or Charlotte Russe.

Black can look slimming and can be worn with flats, boots or sneakers. When it comes to leggings you don’t want them to be too tight or too loose. Too tight and you're in for a wardrobe malfunction and too loose you'll just look sloppy. You also want to be wary of the VPL (visible panty line) showing. To be safe, I would choose a longer top or jacket.

Usually, I will pair leggings with a slim fit longer tank top or tee and then a blazer on top. This can serve as a base for your outfit and then can be paired with a scarf, a statement necklace, a cute shoe or all of the above.

This look can be polished enough to wear to work (on a casual day), and it’s comfortable enough to be worn for a day of traveling or a weekend running errands. When picking a top for leggings, a good rule of thumb is to not let your jacket or shirt near the top of your thigh. No matter how slim your legs are, it will not leave a flattering silhouette.

It took awhile to get on the leggings bandwagon, but now that I am I can’t imagine where my wardrobe would be without them. How do you wear yours?

I seriously wear leggings almost every day! My favorite are the sweater leggings from Free People. I've been wearing grey leg warmers over my leggings since it's been so cold. I also like the knee socks over leggings. I wear Uggs and Sorrel's with my leggings. This comment has been removed.
