How to Wear Leggings and Jeggings

in Fashion

To start I’m assuming that you haven’t been living under a rock the past year and know that Jeggings are a cross between leggings and jeans. They are made out of stretchy thick material usually with fake pockets and look like you are wearing skin tight jeans. Leggings and jeggings are super hot right now mostly because they flatter woman’s bodies if worn properly which we are going to go over.

Picking the right style is important. Unshiny, thicker material looks more modern and hides bumps and bulges better. You want to avoid the shiny spandex of the 80’s.  Leggings come in a wide variety of patterns and designs. Stripes, flowers, shapes, hearts, animal prints......the list is probably endless.

It’s recommended that you wear leggings with longer tops to cover your butt a bit as they can be quite revealing and this also helps smooth out you mid-section.  Also, most stylists suggest wearing legging with flats, boots or low heels. For Jeggings depending on how daring you want to be a short top will show off your behind like no real pair of denim jeans can.

Leggings are great when paired with skirts or tunics. They keep your legs warm and looking smooth while providing another layer to your outfit. Also, do not worry about your age as long as you pair your leggings or jeggings with appropriate tops and age appropriate accessories they can be fashionably worn by all ages.

Ok, so where are you going to find this ultra hot item now?  They are in shopping malls everywhere and available all over the internet to order.  One great thing about leggings and jeggings is that because the stretch it’s easy to order them online and not have to worry too much about them fitting.  Just check the sizing carefully.
