Leggings are a simple concept—in essence, they are a stretchy pair of pants. They are effortlessly comfortable, and have become the “go-to” item in the majority of college girls’ wardrobes.
They have become popular for girls who need something easy to throw on to go to class. And they have also caught the attention of the male population who are enjoying the view. However, it is very easy for leggings to be worn incorrectly. Follow these simple guidelines to avoid a potential leggings faux pas:
1 Keep It Simple– Leggings as pants are a strong statement on their own, so don’t overdo it. Keep the main pieces of the wardrobe minimal, and build it up with accessories, like a scarf or hat.
2Go Casual To Dressy– Start the day wearing the leggings with tennis shoes and a hoodie. Later, switch out the tennis shoes with heels, and pair it with a tunic and blazer. Both outfits keep the leggings understated.
3No Underwear Lines!– Ladies, if you are planning on wearing leggings, do everyone a favor and eliminate all possibilities of underwear lines! Don’t make the mistake of wearing “real” underwear … everyone will know! Wear a thong!
4Black Is Safe– If you are feeling wary of wearing leggings, try out wearing a black pair first. Black leggings are the most subtle, and are slimming to the eye.
5When In Doubt, Don’t! – If you are doubting your choice of wearing leggings as pants then I suggest not wearing them — simple as that! Switch in an alternative pair of pants, and save the leggings for under a skirt or dress.
Well, there you have it! Follow these simple guidelines and wearing leggings will be as easy as they are to slip on!
