HOW TO WEAR LEGGINGS (PROPERLY!)

IMG_2205.jpg

We all own at least one pair of leggings, but are they still in style in 2019? In recent years, we’ve seen leggings worn in all possible ways, and we know that some aren’t the most flattering… But for us, it is obvious that this comfy and versatile basic will always have its place in fashion. You simply need to choose them well, and know how to wear them!


WHAT ARE LEGGINGS, EXACTLY?

Before knowing what to wear with leggings, maybe it would be important to wonder about what they are exactly... Indeed, if they’re often criticized, it’s precisely because we don’t agree on their utility. Are they footless tights? Are they super slim pants? Or maybe sportswear? A bit of each... but not quite!

Even if they look like tights, they shouldn’t be worn in the same way. Wearing leggings with a dress or a skirt doesn’t look so flattering and real tights will look better anyways. As for leggings worn as pants, it works with a long top, but otherwise, it may leave very little room for imagination. And are leggings meant for sports? Yes, but not only! In fact, leggings are not totally tights, nor really trousers, so wear them for what they are... leggings! There are plenty of ways to wear this wonderful basic, so stick to them!


WHAT TO LOOK FOR

To ensure your comfort, make sure your leggings contain a good percentage of stretch (at least 8%). Spandex allows leggings to return to their original shape after being stretched. PS: You can keep your leggings a lot longer if you don’t put them in the dryer. Heat and stretch don’t get along!
