the combination of comfort and style is something that I am constantly trying to achieve, especially on early mornings when the bed is where I’d rather be than in class. Today’s Fashionista is doing a fabulous job pulling off both comfort and style. She has paired an Aztec inspired cardigan with a pair of grey leggings and brown boots. Many people often think that leggings are a fashion sin, but I see no fashion sin here! This Fashionista is clearly wearing her leggings right! Here’s a quick lesson on leggings; Avoid wearing leggings if the top you’re wearing doesn’t cover your bottom. It’s great to want to show off your curves, but even better to leave a little mystery. When picking out which shoes to wear with your leggings go for something with low to no heel. A great pair of flats, boots or even sneakers can bring your leggings to life.
Want to try the legging look? High-low tops have been in style this season and are the perfect garment to pair with leggings. My favorite high-low top is the sheer button-down. It can be found in a variety of colors and price ranges as well. This sheer high-low button-down from Forever 21 will look great with leggings. I also suggest checking out stores like Target and H&M if you’re on a budget.
Like I said earlier, you’re shoes can bring your leggings to life. If you go with the high-low blouse option tall boots like the ones our Fashionista is wearing are perfect. You can find a great pair for a low price from stores like Target. If you have more of an athletic look, you can pair some Retro Jordan’s with an oversized vintage sweatshirt to pull off your legging look. So the next time you want both comfort and style try leggings, trust me you'll thank yourself later!
