Leggings & How To wear

Leggings are any of several sorts of fitted clothing to cover the legs. Originally leggings were two separate garments, one for each leg.
In contemporary usage, leggings refers to tight, form-fitting trousers that extend from the waist to the ankles; in the United States, they are sometimes referred to as tights (although the word tights is often used to refer to opaque pantyhose). Modern leggings are typically made blend of lycra, and either nylon, cotton, or a cotton-polyester blend. However, leggings can also be made from wool, silk, and various synthetic fabrics as wel

How To Wear: Leggings in Winter:::

I'll tell you a secret. After all my ranting and raving, I eventually gave in to the lure of footless tights. I'm still not at the point where I can wear them under everything I own like some girls I spy around London, but they're actually quite useful on days when it's a bit too hot for tights but you want to wear a dress and forgot to shave your legs. And once you've done the footless tights, you may as well go the whole hog. Don't get frightened when I say this, but leggings are the obvious next step. As it gets colder, swapping footless tights for leggings provides more warmth and means you can keep wearing all your mini skirts and dresses in the depths of Winter. Just think of them as a tights alternative, but better because they don't ladder, they don't dig in your waist and mean you can still wear thick socks under your boots

How to wear leggings, a college-bound wardrobe ??

Look for an opaque, stretchy fabric; nothing sheer, or they´ll look like pantyhose (so ´80s!). I like them without lace or trimming at the bottom, but that´s up to you. They should stop either just below the knee or at mid-calf; ankle-length is what makes them look dated. To put an outfit together, remember: It´s all about layering. Start with leggings (black are the easiest to work with—they go with everything!). Then pull on a miniskirt or a pair of short-shorts. Your bottoms have to be short to keep the look modern and sexy. Wear it with a billowy top or a sleek turtleneck—lo que quieras—but nothing cropped. And here´s the best part: Some leggings actually double as body shapers! They´re perfect for tucking in barriguitas

Consider investing in a few key pieces that you can mix and match with your jeans and T-shirts. Check out the cropped jackets that are so hot this fall. In a fabric such as tweed, you can wear it with jeans or slacks and instantly look polished and put-together. The pencil skirt is another classic piece. In a neutral color like black, it´s professionaland feminine. Definitely get yourself an oversized leather tote; it´ll replace your backpack and be durable enough to last for years. And finally, it might be time to kick those sneakers to the back of the closet in exchange for a pair of cute flats
