Falling in love with leggings this fall at every age!
To look good in leggings, it’s important to choose garments and shoes that work well with them, and to know that there are do’s and don’ts to be aware of. You should also consider how they are best used by women of different shapes and age groups. If you haven’t worn leggings recently, or aren’t sure if you are wearing them the right way, well listen up because I have some do’s and don’t you may want to follow…
First things first I don’t care what age you are at or your size..you can be a size 0 and I am going to say the same thing to you….LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS! Ok I got it out there…hope your listening. Even though they are technically a type of pant, they are not designed to be worn in this manner, and leave almost nothing to the imagination when worn alone..basically it looks like your going to the gym or your underwear line or lack of his fighting with your own personal style. Just a plain NO NO!
1.Ladies associated with 40, 50 as well as older you may also put on leggings with a middle length tunic or top (simply over knee duration) in a simple, calm style. These fully trust the pattern or perhaps a print however absolutely nothing as well busy or even outrageous, simple colors perform best. Tunic dresses look great for this ensemble and give a casual day time look when combined with smooth dolly shoes; if you are putting on long sleeves, why don’t you add a buckle to intensify a gorgeous figure. No matter what age this can look like a pulled together clean classy look and not fearful of the youth factor involved.
2.30’s plus you know you have the in between looks but to be careful with throwing on some black leggings/tiny mini skirt and knee high boots…NO NO this can not be happening!! I don’t want to see that hot mess pushing a stroller down the street…now that being said if your mid 30’s going out on the town late night with the ladies…then by all means go right ahead..but if your a working girl or mom with some babes then try to tone it down a bit to the classy causal side of things but rock it all trendy! You can pull it off so get comfy with your leggings and try a print with a long tunic and scarf and some cute riding boots! Love this look…
3.20’s there is really nothing to be said! You can just look up any blog or magazine and have the best trends at your finger tips. You can rock the minis at anytime of day or the short shorts as well and get away with it all. You just need to know how to make your color pallets work for fall and be chic and fun in your hot fall leggings. Go wild with all the new prints on leggings and sheens…what ever it is rock it with confidence and your golden.
