A Guide to Leggings

It's safe to say that leggings have won over the hearts of girls everywhere. There's something irresistible about feeling like your ready for yoga class, while still looking fabulous. We love our cozy leggings just as much as the next girl, but with that said, there are RULES.

*this outfit is just a no. no. no. NO.

Leggings should NOT be worn as pants.  Just as you wouldn't wear tights without something to cover your tush, the same rules apply to leggings. Most of us are guilty of sporting this not-so-cute ensemble at some point, but in reality, it's in everyone's best interest that we we stop this immediately.

With that said, here are some ideas on how to rock your leggings from here on out:

  • Invest in a good pair - Sometimes it's worth spending the extra cash for the extra coverage.                                           Cheaper leggings tend to wear-out easily and can be slightly see-through.                                               
  • Make sure they cover crotch area - Say no to camel toe.
  • Layer with scarves, boots - The more the merrier! A great way to dress up your leggings is with                                             lots of layers. It not only keeps you warm during those chilly days,                                               but it also adds structure and color to your outfit.
  • Different ways to style them - A cute tunic or a long cardi are perfect pieces to work with.                                                         A good rule of thumb to go by is when you straighten your arms                                                   at your sides, your fingertips should not reach past your top.
