I think I should begin this by saying I love leggings. They are soooo comfortable, and after a week of wearing structured skirts, blouses and high high heels for work, its so nice to put a pair of leggings and a big jumper on and laze on the sofa watching crap.
(Yes, I realise this is the sort of thing I wore when I was 13. Obviously I am going through 13 year cycles of fashion. Next year: baby gros)
However, with an item of clothing coming into fashion, there will always be some people that will just Get It Wrong. Oh so wrong.
I was on the bus this morning, and there was a girl with a pair of thin leggings on, with a cardgian and top underneath. The cardi barely touched the top of the leggings, and they were so tight that they were see through in some places. To make things worse, she was sitting at the back of the bus with her legs on either side of the backwards facing chairs. Why would you think this was a good idea when wearing something a bit less revealing I don’t know, but at 8am, I wasn’t really wanting a biology lesson in womens parts.
It made me think about other leggings/normal length top combinations I have seen recently. Bristol is a fairly relaxed city, and its quite normal to see some combinations that you wouldn’t really get in Chester. However t-shirts tucked into leggings is not a look that should be seen at any time. If anything, thats something to be worn underneath layers and layers, because ITS SO DAMN COLD.
Anyway. Here’s my helpful guide on how to wear leggings.
Hope this helps.
(Also, had to put this in:
I am so wearing that to my next party)
