One of the toughest things, when it comes to fashion, is looking cute but being comfy. Dresses and skirts can be comfortable but there's always the worry in the back of your head that you may have a Marilyn Monroe moment, or that your legs aren't crossed! Jeans and many other pants can be uncomfortable and restricting. My favourite type of bottom, are leggings!
For some reason, leggings seem to be a controversial clothing item! Many people believe strongly that leggings are not pants and shouldn't be worn as pants. Personally, I don't really agree but I don't completely disagree either. I think that leggings can be worn as pants as long as they are worn with a loose and/or a baggy top or jumper. I definitely wouldn't recommend wearing a short top with leggings, unless you like the camel toe look (which no one does!).
Anyway, I'm going to show you my personal recommendations on how to style leggings. The best part is that leggings come in such a wide variety of colours, prints and materials.
- Comfy Casual
This is perfect for school, college or days when you aren't doing much. Some basic leggings and a cute knitted jumper keeps you warm, comfy and cute! I love this jumper from Topshop (€61) and these thick, panel leggings from River Island (€25).
- Lunch with Friends
This outfit is a more formal than the last, but still low-key. Perfect for going to lunch with some friends or going shopping! These cream leggings, from River Island (€33.71 on ASOS), with the panel down the side are so classy and this ASOS bow back denim shirt (€51.24) is to die for!
- Night Out
The last look I'll show is styling leggings for a night out. A bit of bling and some killer heels always do the trick. These leggings are sure to stand out thanks to the amazing tassel detail (€53.95 ASOS). Pair them with a embellished peplum (€47.20 Lipsy at ASOS) and some killer heels (Boohoo €55) and you're good to go.
Let me know if you are loving leggings as much as I am and what your favourite look is!
