Those of us who remember this trend from the 80’s are in a full-on fashion flashback now that we’re seeing leggings all over again. Originally paired with baggy sweatshirts, today’s celebs are bringing the style back with leggings in unique styles, fabrics, and cuts. Stars like Rihanna are rocking liquid leggings on the street and we’re all thinking they actually look somewhat decent…on her.
Question is, if you’re not a size zero, how do you make this trend your own? Well, you can wear them like tights under a longer sweater, with a dress or skirt, or pair them with a long jacket. The idea is to keep tops simple and longer to elongate the line. Keep the color of the leggings complementary to your top half to create a streamlined effect.
For those of you who wouldn’t dare try the actual liquid look (we hear you–anything that reflects light off your thighs should be approached with great caution), you can try a slightly more muted version of the trend with these Plush Faux Leather Liquid Leggings ($70).
