Lovely Leggings Do's & Don'ts

LOVELY LEGGINGS DO'S & DON'TS
In case you haven’t noticed between by sock post and tight post, I am slightly obsessed with leg wear, and leggings are definitely in the leg wear category! Since I started the week with Tenacious Tights I thought it only appropriate to include Lovely Leggings in this weeks posts. Although jeans look great, I prefer leggings for the casual everyday life. Leggings are versatile, comfortable, in style, come in tons of cute colors and prints, and they will keep you warm on those cold winter days! The only trick to wearing leggings is wearing them in a flattering manner. I have done some research on the do’s and don'ts of wearing leggings; today I am going to share some valuable tips so you will always look fabulous in your leggings from now on! 

Wear panties that won't show through (i.e.wear dark panties with dark leggings and lighter shades of panties with lighter color leggings). Also be sure to pick a pair of panties to wear with your leggings that won't show  an underwear line
Be sure to wear a longer sweater or shirt with your leggings, this will give you a more sophisticated look.
Make sure that your leggings fit correctly; you don't won't them to fit lose, and you definitely don't want a camel toe, so don't buy a pair that fits too tight. 
Choose a length that is flattering for you. Pick a pair of leggings that stops at the thinnest part of your calf; for the most part leggings look best in longer lengths.  
There is no going wrong with a pair of black leggings! Black is the most elegant color for leggings and they match everything!

  1. I wear leggings 24/7 and I can always get away with wearing black leggings as pants without my under wear showing through. But what do I wear under white leggings? What ever panties I chose they still show through. White doesn't seem to work, I have seen many people wearing white pants or shorts and their white undies show through.

    1. I wear leggings all the time too! I always wear nude/flesh color seamless underwear when I wear white, that seems to do the trick. Victoria's Secret has a great selection, here's a link, http://www.victoriassecret.com/panties/body-by-victoria/sexy-little-seamless-high-leg-brief-panty-body-by-victoria?ProductID=3765&CatalogueType=OLS&search=true. Hope this helps!

  2. I ordered the 4 pairs for $28.00 from Victoria's Secret, 2 in nude and 2 in white. I have never worn seamless underwear so that should cure the VPL I get with some of my cheaper leggings. With spring just around the corner I can hardly wait to be able to wear my white leggings out. I have been confined to wearing them around the house. I won't wear leggings under a skirt or dress, it reminds me of something a child would wear to school. Thanks for the tip, I really enjoyed your possitive views on wearing leggings when there is so many that claim "Leggings Arn't Pants".

  3. How do you determine if the leggins fit properly? For example how tight should they be? Went to buy a pair recently and smaller size was well fitted on legs & minimal creases the larger pair waist was bettee fit but legs felt loose around crutch and much more creases around knee downwards....

    1. Leggings should be fitted on the legs and have little to no creases/wrinkles. A lot of people think leggings should fit right on the hip, but most leggings should come up to just below you bellybutton or around your natural waistline. If the top of the waistband is giving you a muffin top or if the leggings are giving you a camel toe they are probably too tight. From your description of the leggings you tried on it sounds like you need the smaller size. I hope this reply helps you! Happy legging shopping! Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you stop by again!
