It's that time of year, the air is crisp, it's boot season, and the new leggings are out in stores.
However some of you wear yoga gear all year round, you should heed this how to as well, or just put on a pair of jeans. Like are you really going to yoga all day every day? Anyway, that's a whole other blog post...
Leggings are a handy/lazy piece of any woman's wardrobe (unless you are pregnant, then you can wear them as much as you'd like), but not every woman understands how to wear them properly. Leggings are meant to be worn as part of a layered outfit. It's hard to pull off a fashionable look if you wear leggings as a pair of pants, instead of as a pair of tights under other clothing.
Pair leggings with a long top always. No one needs to see your bits and pieces, no one. Most leggings in the marketplace are cheaply made and SEE THROUGH! It's apparent that some of you don't know this. Cover your bum. Leggings are not pants. Period.
Don't wear leggings that are too tight or too loose. Your leggings should be tight enough to snugly cover your legs, but not so tight that people can see every dimple in your legs. Make sure that they aren't so loose that they start to bunch over your legs, because that isn't very flattering either.
Kate Bosworth and SJP know how to do it right.
