LEGGINS AND HOW TO CHOOSE THEM

IMG_6366IMG_6367

When I need to be comfortable I look for a good pair of leggings. I could never imagine myself wearing leggings and it took me at least six years to try them on. Of course, I was in the dark side of the moon until one day  I saw the light. How? As usual it happened by chance when I was returning some cloths and I could not get my money back as it was end of season sale. Then I was supposed to exchange clothes for other things and I had five euros left so suddenly I saw a pair of black leggings in a 3X. Considering I could wear them at home I thought it was wise to take them. Said and done and I was shocked how comfortable they were and worn with a long tunic I looked ok. Since then I have worn them in my journeys, at school in winter, in early summer days when you do not want to wear pantyhose… Many occasions to wear leggings but not all leggings are worth.

When considering buying a pair of leggings you must take in to account the following:

  • The weight of the fabric is the key of the fit. Cellulite, fat rolls or your underwear can be shown if the fabric is too sheer.
  • Look for high waisted leggings to cover your waist and stomach unless you prefer to tug your leggings up constantly.
  • If you have short legs like me it is difficult to find leggings so the best thing to do is tucking your leggings into. Then you can have them in the right length.
  • I always wear leggings with dresses or with long tops. I never use them with short tops as my stomach is too prominent and I like to camouflage it this way in an optic illusion.
  • Last thing to take in mind is to feel confident when you wear them.

Once story has been told, a short description of today´s outfit. A cute  short-sleeved top in cotton jersey with a seam at the hem and wide, woven flounce paired with old black leggings and black ballerina flats. Statement floral earrings and necklace make the look a bit festive. I admit it was too much accessoring but once in a blue moon excess could be welcomed.

How do you style leggins? What brand is your favourite for leggings?

See U soon. Love and peace.

¿Quién dijo que los leggings no son para las mujeres de talla grande? Yo era una de las que pensaba eso y tarde mucho tiempo en probarme un par. Cuando descubrí su comodidad, fue como ver la luz pues resultan cómodos y versátiles. Los utilizo siempre con prendas largas que cubran mi estómago prominente y mi mis muslos, pero aún así no renuncio a llevarlos. Mis trucos para elegir el par más idóneo son los siguientes:

  • Leggings con caida y con lycra en su composición. Por dos motivos primero porque son prendas muy reveladoras y  segundo porque a nadie le gusta que se marquen la celulitis o la ropa interior.
  • Los leggings de talle alto resultan más cómodos porque recogen el estomago de modo que no es preciso subirlos cada dos por tres para colocarlos en caso de que se deslicen.
  • Un tema delicado son los bajos para aquellas que somos de talla corta. Mi truco consiste en doblar hacia dentro para darles la altura necesaria. Si fueran otro tipo de prendas les cogería el bajo pero con el punto no me atrevo por la calidad del tejido.
  • Mi última confidencia es llevarlos con soltura y pensar que ande yo caliente, ríase la gente.

Hoy os presento un modelo negro combinado con una camiseta de algodón rosa que tiene un volantito de tela muy gracioso en el bajo. La combinación es muy normal pero al añadirle unos pendientes y un collar con diseño floral en gamas rosas queda bastante barroco para lo que yo suelo ser. Pero hoy en pleno mes de junio me siento florero o árbol de navidad así que ahí vamos con confianza y seguridad a hacer recados.  

¿Lleváis leggings? ¿Cómo los combináis? Espero vuestras ideas.

Besos infinitos y hasta la próxima
