It’s Monday so you know what that means….another Personal Style Linkup! Today’s linkup includes me wearing one of my favorite articles of clothing- leggings! When I purchased this pair of plus size leggings from Lord & Taylor, I knew I’d made a sensible purchase. I’m constantly learning how to shop for my curves, which I believe is something you never stop “learning” how to do regardless of your body type/shape. Well made leggings, and comfy tunics, are pieces that make me feel very confident and fashion forward so, it’s a win win!
As I’ve mentioned several times on the blog, I’m constantly on the move so leggings have become an instant go-to. Leggings are great, but they must be tasteful. Wearing leggings, regardless of your shape or size, can be tricky, which is why I follow the 3 rules below.
1. Full length works best for me.
2. They must be made of heavy material – pantylines and see-through leggings are never tasteful.
3. An elastic waist that doesn’t squeeze or leave marks on my belly is a must – comfort is key.
I find that stores like Nordstrom, Lord and Taylor and Macy’s have a great selection of plus size leggings. Here are a few links in case you’re interested. I actually have the Vince Camuto and Style&Co. leggings pictured below. I purchased both pair from the actual store – the Vince Camuto pair were on sale for $40 and the Style&Co. were marked down to about $15-$20.
So tell me, are you a leggings wearer? What rules do you apply, if any, when shopping for leggings? Let me know! Also, don’t forgert to link up your outfit links below. I want to see your amazing personal style posts! Be sure to link back your looks to this post. Thanks in advance. Until tomorrow, be blessed!
