Hello! Fashionistas, let’s discuss something so dear to our hearts. Leggings
Leggings are the softer cousins of denim. Denim is the ultimate, no lie! But denim isn’t always the most comfortable clothing item to wear. It’s pretty heavy, stiff, and doesn’t always feel cozy. But with leggings, it is everything we wanted and more. They are soft, cozy, flexible, and fit with almost anything you put on; most importantly, they come in so many different fabrics and serve different purposes, and that’s what we will be discussing—the ten best leggings to wear.
Types of Leggings:
Leather has been around since the reign of the Roman empire. Leather was gotten from animal hinds and is refined; it was made for shoes, wristwatch bands, and now leggings. Leather leggings aren’t the most accessible fashion pieces because of how easy it is to hit up to a ten or miss, but once you hit it, it’s for life. Leather leggings have been around for a long time and aren’t going anywhere soon. Our style suggestion; a one-shoulder top, faux leather leggings boots, and a leather jacket. For a more straightforward look, a one-shoulder off sweater, faux leggings, ankle boots, and a cute purse for good measure.
High waist leggings
Like high-waist trousers, these leggings give us more confidence wearing them, especially when we feel like wearing a crop top. High-waists were made for fashion enthusiasts who have that extra tummy flab and don’t feel so comfortable in crop tops. The extra waist length helps to tuck in the extra tummy flab, giving you a slimmer and smaller-looking waist. High-waist leggings come in various fabrics, and you can choose any fabric and rock them with your favorite crop top.
Detailed leggings are just like regular leggings, only hotter. This type of leggings has all kinds of details on them. From chains to rhinestones, stickers, prints, and everything you can think of, it’s all here. They could come in animal prints, camouflage, or have a face printed on them. The fun thing about detailed leggings is that you can buy regular leggings and DIY them to your taste. Just get regular leggings and go buck crazy and creative on them. Rock your creation and take amazing pictures. There are no limits to what you can do with detailed leggings.
Want to still look stylish in winter? Then wool leggings should be your clothing of choice. Wool is a thick fabric that always keeps warm, so wearing wool leggings in winter is a win. Instead of wearing jeans and feeling uneasy, wool leggings are here to the rescue. Experts advise you to get those made from Merino wool instead of cheap wool because some cheap wool can cause itching and even skin irritation. Style suggestions; for a day out in winter, we would suggest a sweater, wool leggings, wool socks, and Crocs (depending on where you want to go). Don’t forget a beanie and gloves. Stay warm, stay stylish.
Cotton leggings are the absolute best. They are soft to feel, super comfortable to wear, easy to wash and maintain, and flexible. Perfect for the gym or yoga because they absorb your sweat quickly and keep your skin feeling cool. Cotton leggings are also one of the most common leggings you would find in the market because they are easy and inexpensive. Style suggestion; chiffon long top, cotton leggings, ankle boots or sneakers, whichever you prefer. For a little extra touch, a cross bag and sunshades.
Next to cotton are cashmere leggings. They are almost the same texture and feel, but cashmere can’t absorb as much moisture as cotton, but it is still a great choice. Cashmere is almost a rough balance of wool and cotton, so it can absorb a little bit of moisture but would also keep you warm on a winter day. Although it’s not advisable to wear cashmere leggings when the weather temperature has dropped below 0°, it can serve on a chilly day. Style suggestions; sleeveless tank top, cashmere leggings, and thigh-high boots. You can add a jacket and shades for extra points.
As the name suggests, this type of leggings is made from stretchy and flexible fabrics to allow wearers the freedom to move as they please. Sporting leggings could be any length, above the knee, mid-calf, or even full length. Whichever works for you is available to you. To get the best of your sporting leggings, go for the ones made of polyester and Lycra. Both have stretching abilities and can return to their original form after all that stretching. There are other fabrics you can choose from, but make sure it has at least 5% lycra for stretching purposes.
Mid-calf leggings are those leggings that stop midway between your knees and your ankles. These are usually worn when working out but also make a great day outfit. It gives sporty vibes, makes you look like an athlete even if you aren’t, and adds springs to your feet. It could also be worn with a long top and wedge shoes if you’re older or going for a semi-formal meeting. It’s the balance between serious and not-so-serious.
Ripped leggings give off the same vibes as ripped jeans. Even though this became trendy years after leggings had been introduced, we are glad to have something crazy and fun to wear that isn’t jeans. The rips on leggings could be horizontal cuts from the thighs down. Or it could be cut here and there to give them that ripped-denim look. Ripped leggings are fun to wear to clubs, parties, or a night out.
Jeggings are a combination of denim-like fabric and Lycra. They are made in denim-like colors, styles, and designs to give you the denim look but leggings feelings. Some jeggings have designs you would generally see on denim; the lines, the pockets, the buttons, and so on, although they are usually softer and more flexible, easier to maintain, and, of course, cheaper. You can style them the way you would style your regular pair of denim pants.
