Leggings are hands down one of my favorite items in my closet – ever. They are so easy to dress up or down; it’s basically all about what you choose to match it with. I can confidently say that I wear leggings about five of the seven days in a week. Now some of you are probably like, put on a pair of jeans, but let’s be real, no one likes jeans. They are uncomfortable especially if you’re sitting in class all day long. And please don’t even get me started on when they start to do that weird stretching thing. The most annoying thing in the world, is when I put my jeans on in the morning and they fit just right – hugging every curve and just looking fine, and then boom three p.m. hits and they’re baggy around the knees and being needed to be picked up every five minutes? Like why? With leggings you don’t have this problem.
I’m about to answer the age old mystery – girls don’t just own like two pairs of black leggings – there about a entire draw full of them, and three more pairs in the laundry. They are just such a go to piece of clothing, that it’s essential to have so many pairs. I would say I own about ten pair of leggings, and around three of them still have the tags on.
In today’s world it is more and more common to wear leggings as pants. Don’t listen to those silly fashion magazines where they tell you leggings aren’t pants – because they are. It honestly just depends on which one’s you’re wearing and how you style them! (A word of advice, make sure that they aren’t too thin, because no one wants to see your underwear when you bend over) Here are some cute outfit ideas to incorporate leggings into your everyday wardrobe:
- Long Loose Tops – pair your leggings with a top that comes to a length, where your bottom will be covered.
- A cute sweater – sweaters are just as comfortable as leggings, so why not put them together? Wear a pair of boots, necklace, and maybe even a scarf. This combination gives leggings, a little more of pants feel.
- T-shirt or Hoodie – who says that leggings always have to be dressy? Dress comfortable one day!
Leggings are a great essential to have in your wardrobe. No matter how you style your leggings, make sure you stay true to you – incorporate and wear what makes you comfortable!
