I love leggings! I admit it! I think they are practical, comfortable, versatile, and adorable! I tell myself, leggings are not pants. Oh, but I want them to be SO bad! And honestly people, they are not going away from what I can see. Designers are still adding them to their new lines, stars are still finding new ways to wear them, and they are only getting more interesting with different materials and embellishments. So in 2013 I am embracing my love for leggings. And I will tell you why: No nonsense tights and leggings. Its a brand of tights and leggings and I am telling you, I am in love! The leggings are nice and thick (no jiggling or panty lines allowed!) and they have an added feature of a control top panel that ensures a flattering, comfortable fit. They can be found food & drug stores as well as mass retailers AND they're affordable!
So if you love leggings, wear them! There are always cute, flattering ways to wear them. Just follow some style guidelines for 2013:
- Leggings should be thick, thick thick. Anything that event hints at a panty line or turns see through when stretched is just a pair of tights!
- Know your body type. Tops should always cover the majority of your backside AT A MINIMUM.
- Make sure your outfit is balanced. Don't pair them with a tight top or dress. This is rarely flattering no matter how good your body is and it will look unbalanced.
So I took my amazing No nonsense leggings and styled them four ways to give you some ideas. I love wearing leggings with a dress. Especially in the winter months! So for 2013 keep this look fresh by pairing them with some booties. Also, I am not a fan of the mid calf leggings for this style. So go full length for a little more "grown up" look. Yes, leggings can be dressed up. With a long dressy blouse and a pair of high heels they can actually look very chic! And now that their are many new styles of leggings (think leather) the possibilities are great. Comfort, sweet comfort! The reason we all accepted leggings to begin with. I love wearing my leggings all layered up with a comfy pair of boots. A long stretchy tank with a loose fitting sweater help give the look some symmetry. And finally try wearing your leggings with a long button up or tunic, a blazer and some wedge booties. Perfect for a casual date or day out shopping. Why not be comfortable and cute and the same time?

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for any kind of tips I can find!
