They’re back. But these poor leggings are being grossly misused. Not ok. Chic under a denim mini, a disaster under shorts or bermudas. Who does that?! Well-heeled women and hipster urbanites alike have embraced the legging trend. A little vomit came up my throat when I saw a lovely middle-aged woman abusing her fashion rights with leggings under a Britney-circa-1998 school girl skirt.
But leggings can be so functional when worn properly. They can keep you warm, dress down an outfit, and they look great with heels, flats, and especially Converse if you’re looking to go hip. Find a versatile pair for $32 at Nordstrom.com. Find every price range at Amazon.com.
Buy only if you solemnly swear to wear them appropriately. It can be done and it can be fun.
