Alright ladies, lets talk leggings. I am a huge fan of leggings myself BUT I see a lot of ladies wearing them where they are simply not flattering. Therefore, today I would like to discuss the do’s and don’ts when it comes to wearing leggings in public. When you’re at home, by all means, do whatever you want.
When you buy a new pair of leggings, do yourself and everyone else a favor and hold them up to the light. If you can see through them without them being on your body, I promise you that everyone else will be able to see your goodies when you put them on. IF that is the case, I have some good news for you! You can still wear them but wear them less as pants and more as something you put on under a tunic top. You’ll still be able to wear your incredibly comfy leggings and everyone else will think you look super cute other than noticing that they can see your hot pink undies.
Another slight fauxpas that I see fairly often is wearing leggings that too closely resemble your skin tone. Nobody wants to make a double take to ensure you in fact actually have on pants. That’s enough to give anyone a heart attack. IF you find yourself with leggings that you simply love that are flesh colored, you can still easily wear them. Just get yourself a cute t-shirt or sweater dress and a hot pair of boots and you’ll be good to go. That way you can wear your leggings, be warm, and nobody is going to wonder whether or not you’re wearing pants. No judgment on this one, we’ve all done it. Personally, I have this super cute pair of light pink Lularoe leggings and being the redhead that I am… they totally blend into my skin. Let’s just say I wore them with a short tunic and got a few double takes of the not good kind.
Now, with those ideas in mind, rock forth and wear your leggings ladies! I have a preference of not wearing any sort of leggings as pants but you do you and if you think you make it work then by all means, do your thing!
