leggings are back, and I’m not quite sure what to think about it. It reminds me a lot of middle school and the baby doll dress/leggings craze. On one hand I love the way leggings look under a sweater dress.
On another hand, I wonder if there is an age limit for certain types of leggings. I like the look of denim leggings in theory, but I’m not quite sure I like them in reality. I saw some at Target last night at a ridiculously low price, & I’ve been thinking they’d be a nice alternative to wear with boots and a tunic or sweater instead of skinny jeans shoved uncomfortably into boots. I have to admit, I’ve been glad to shuck the boots at the end of a long day and relieve my constricted calves though I’ve never experienced the extent of what experts are now calling skinny jean syndrome. What we’ll do for fashion!
For normal people who don’t have a models body, I think this look could work with the right shirt. But is it just for teeny boppers and celebs? Have any of you rocked denim leggings? What have you paired it with? Do you think there is an age limitation for this trend?
The bad/good part of a cute style like this is it’s really comfortable. One person commented in a product review that she loves wearing denim leggings because they look like jeans but feel like pajamas. This is when fashion can start to go downhill fast and suddenly cute becomes frump.
We all have different body types & I think that no matter what size you are, you can look cute. There is no reason to look frumpy because of how much or little you weigh. I think the trick, especially with trendy things like this is to figure out how to make it work for your body type. Personally, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing denim leggings as pants because it just feels way too revealing and I don’t want to walk around feeling self-conscious all day. But I do think I would wear them under a longer sweater or a tunic style shirt with a pair of boots.
Ladies- (or guys who happen to have a passion for skinny jeans and leggings) what do you think? Trend yay or nay? Will you be buying some denim leggings any time soon? What will you wear them with?
