Legging Look featuring Lulus.com

Filed Under: Style

If you get nothing else from this blog post, at least make note of how to appropriately wear leggings – with a long top to cover your lady parts. I know you’ve all heard this before but let this serve as a reminder: I don’t care how good you mistakenly think they make your booty look, leggings are not pants.

So in conclusion, invest in tunic length tops and sweaters! I especially love this sweater from Tulle (links below). It is soft, comfortable, and the color is awesome for fall. It pairs perfectly with leggings and is still put-together for a lazy day! I also love long tops with legging jeans and boots. The tapestry detail on these boots gives it a little something extra, dontcha think?

    I have to say that depends on the type of leggings you’re wearing. Some are just like pants, and I wore a pair today, and my ladyparts were not covered. And I’m fat! But I looked darn good.

  9. Bahah, I’m wearing that exact cardigan right now as I type this! TWINSIES! So fetch.

  10. Completely agree with you about the leggings – that was one of my biggest pet peeves in college. It was basically uniform at my school – bleeeh :P

    I love those boots! So different and fun!

    The perfect look for leggings! I agree with you, longer shirts or tunics are appropriate with leggings. And your boots are super cute.

    I agree. Leggings are NOT pants! Blame Miss Lindsay Lohan circa 2006 for that one. The detail on the boots is so beautiful! But I think your necklace really ties it all together!

  15. Claudia says:

    Yeah not really into the leggings-as-pants.

  16. Rachel says:

    Love your cardigan and leggings! Such a cute fall look :)

  17. I agree! Your booty needs to be covered when wearing leggings! I saw a lady in an airport bending over to go through her luggage and it made her leggings so thin that you could see all her business. I have vowed to never be that lady. lol. You look great!

    Couldn’t have said it better about leggings and so called “lady parts.” People must remember that leggings do not function as pants! Can’t just crop your looks at the waist and call it a day!

    “I don’t care how good you mistakenly think they make your booty look, leggings are not pants”.

    HEAR! HEAR!
    Someone should make a billboard of these words.

  20. 100% agreeing with your comment about our lady parts. No to camel toe! Love your sweater – looks so cozy.

    In the words of Blair Waldorf..”Tights aren’t pants!” I think she meant the same about leggings too!
