In my opinion if there is one piece to have a good inventory of this winter it’s leggings.
I have about 4 pairs to choose from and they ALL get good use, I wear them with sweater dresses like the one above or a tunic like the picture below. They’re also a good option to wear in place of tights when you want a little more coverage or warmth.
Here are some of my rules for leggings:
*Make sure they’re long enough, I think anyone can wear leggings but you have to do it right. If they’re cutting your leg across at mid-calf then guess what? You’re shortening the look of your legs & making your frame look smaller & stocky. I think they should at least come within a couple of inches of your ankle bone.
*They have to be thick enough, some of the cheaper ones can be a bit see-through around the thicker parts of your leg. Try them on 1st. They should be very comfy, if the waistband elastic is too snug then go up a size or try a different brand.
*No spandexy shimmer. When you put them on if you can see the sheen from the elastic in the legging then take them off. Immediately.
Here are a few of my favorites…
