I’ve been a big fan of leggings for a long time. Leggings for everyone, I say! But I do have some do’s and don’ts. Not that I’m the fashion queen, or anything, but I find when I follow those rules I feel more comfortable, and I don’t think I creep anyone out.
I’ve been wearing leggings for years, but always with a long shirt, or possibly even with a skirt or dress (sometimes I get a little crazy, I know). Most of the civilized world seems to agree that covering the girlie bits is a good idea when wearing these out as fashion (as opposed to gym attire, where apparently anything goes… I wouldn’t know, I haven’t set foot in a gym in decades, aside from an elementary school gym and that’s totally different).
Back to the point… leggings.
So, uh, yeah… I just bought myself my first pair of the seemingly ever-present Lularoe variety. I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here they’re crazy popular. I tried on a pair a while back, and nope, they didn’t fit. But then, the other day, a whole Lularoe store appeared in the teacher’s lounge, and what did they have? Extended sizes! Not only that, but there were several pairs from which to choose, and they were all really fun patterns. Oh. My. Gawd.
So yes, I did it. I took the plunge and bought myself a pair of rockin’ reindeer leggings, complete with festive pine trees. They’re so soft! So comfy! So cute! And I even wore them to school with a long black sweater and black boots. I got so many compliments that day, and I felt like I was in my pajamas!
Anyway, don’t be afraid of those leggings. Wear what you like. But please, do take a look in the mirror before you walk out the door. Be sure you like how you look, because if you don’t, you’ll feel self-conscious all day, and there’s nothing comfortable about that.
