It’s a Leggings Affair.

Forget wearing Leggings to the gym or even for yoga, I have discovered if you master the art of styling this apparel, you can create more versatile stylish looks. There is this perception that they are indecent, I strongly oppose it. It all depends on getting/selecting the perfect one that fits perfectly, and also knowing how to style it.

When it comes to selecting the proper most flattering leggings, there are a number of things you must consider.
1.Material
The material should be heavy .The reason for this is to avoid see through situations. We are not in the business of advertising our goodies or underwear’s to the world .A heavy legging will ensure you are decently covered concealing everything that should be concealed .It’s disgusting and disturbing watching ladies confidently walking in the streets with very light see through leggings .A proper heavy legging will save you such embarrassment.

2.The Print and Patterns
The print and patterns in leggings should be minimal and subtle. Fashion for sure has no rules but there are trends that are a complete turn off. I cringe when I come across a lady wearing leggings with dramatic animal prints, distracting floral prints, very huge hounds-tooth Pattern….No ladies No !. It’s a distraction and you kind of look ratchet…. sorry. Go for calm, patterns for a more sophisticated look.

3.Stretchiness
A legging that is capable of stretching more, definitely fits even better. Because of the nature of leggings, they tend to highlight every curve and every flaw. If it stretches more, the flaws will be concealed .Get one that stretches just perfectly to conceal the unwanted flaws, and highlight curves accordingly. The beauty about leggings is that they are perfect for both Petite and plus size ladies .

3.Color
If you have never owned a pair of leggings for starters, I would recommend you first try leggings in dark colors. These ranges from black, navy-blue and dark brown. These colors are easier to style and can be paired with a variety of colored tops.
After getting the perfect Legging, Style it with a long or short top, depending with how comfortable you are .In my case even on events I have a short top, I always wear a cover-up or blazer .This makes me more comfortable .Complete the look with any shoe of choice and hit the road. See you next week Guys.
