Trends come and go but comfort is always in. One of my biggest challenges as someone who loves looking pretty is the balance of those two. As much as I love looking great, I can’t pull off a look unless I feel comfortable in what I am wearing. Leggings have been around for a while now, and they are kinda a love me or hate me option. For me, it is pure unconditional love since day one! Leggings are essential in my wardrobe. I have blue ones, grey ones and of course a few black ones as well. They make my mornings easier and so they are an nonnegotiable necessity for me.
The one thing I love the most about leggings is their versatility. They can seaminglessly work with almost anything. I am a big fan of using them with longer tops. I personally feel more comfortable that way because of my body type. Longer shirts allow me to freely move without worry. They also give my outfit a more relaxed feel. However, for this post I pushed myself to try something different to really test the versatility of my leggings. I decided to pair them with a shorter top. It works!
The only issue I used to have with leggings was their durability. Leggings are usually made of a thinner material than regular pants and so as expected this makes them less lasting. But wait! That’s what I thought until I slipped myself into my Comm-ci leggings! You guys, not only do the look of superior quality, you can feel it too. What I love most about them is the waist band. It's thick and strong so it helps in the shaping and countoring of your body. As soon as I put them on I knew I could wear a shorter top with this pair. The fabric is definitely stronger than other leggings I own. That being said, you still have too stick to nude color undies. That is the truth for me at least. I believe it's because my hips are the widest part of my body so inevitably the fabric is stretched thinner there. That allows for less coverage. If you have a slim figure, this might not even be an issue for you. So let's move on to the fun part...
Here's how you can wear your leggings...
For work: this is where we want to look stylish and put together without drawing too much attention to ourselves. As you already know I do wear leggings to work. Like, all the time! Pair them with a shirt that goes passed where your hips are. You can wear a dress shirt with cuffed sleeves and accessorize with a pretty necklace and earrings. Another option is to wear a simpler top with a blazer or cardigan on top. Leggings work with boots, flats or stilettos just like most denim pants would. The work attire options are endless!
For school: here we want to be comfortable without loosing our cool. Try your leggings with a simple white-t and layer it with an oversized denim jacket. Or go for a more edgy look by wearing a pair of leather boots and a leather jacket to layer up. Want more comfy? Just grab your oldest converse shoes and pair your leggings with your favorite pullover sweater. Want to look like you actually tried a bit? wear a denim dress shirt under your pullover sweater and take the collar out. Boom! Now get to class!
On a date: now we flirt! Not that I know much about that but let’s try lol! Did you know that you can wear leggings under a dress?! Yup! Take your cutest, shortest dress and pair it with your leggings (make sure the colors match). Now pair that with cute high heel booties. Not in the mood to wear a dress? gotcha. Try a shorter top like the one I am wearing on this post and layer up with a jacket or cardigan. You could even wear an oversized knit sweater and stilettos with your leggings too!
Cocktails with the girls: Any of the previously mentioned options work! Don’t we meet our girls after work, school, or meeting the dude anyways? Just bring your selfie light and you're set! lol
Lazy day in: pair your leggings with your coziest, most comfiest socks and a loose top and you're officially ready to lounge at home!
I really hope this post helps you in creating looks with your leggings that can work for any occasion. Being stylish has little to do with trends and everything to do with making pieces work well for your taste and lifestyle.
