Traditionally, leggings are known as breathable, comfortable pants that can be worn in mild temperatures. With the right pair of heels and a billowy blouse, they are actually quite flattering during the mild, or warmer, seasons. However, leggings might not be seen as “cold weather” apparel. Believe it or not, they can easily integrate into a favorite cold weather outfit!
Dresses: Protecting the Legs
One of the cutest ways to wear leggings is to pair them with a dress. During the cold months, exposed legs get cold, dry, and chapped. Tights simply don’t cut it. Snug leggings can be worn in neutral shades, which helps to ensure that the leggings don’t attract too much attention from the shape of the legs. They can then disappear into a pair of cute chunky (or furry) boots, allowing for a seamless transition from dress to shoe. Leggings have definitely become popular to wear with dresses in recent years.
Using Leggings as “Thermals”
Certain fabrics, such as fleece, produce warmer leggings. This is a wonderful piece to have in the wardrobe because fleece sofra leggings will still fit under slightly loose pants or jeans. For those who live in northern areas where temperatures frequently dip below freezing, this added layer of protection will keep the wearer from suffering during fun outdoor events. In addition, the outer pants can be removed in warmer places to avoid becoming too hot. Leggings are amazing emergency back ups!
Leggings and Sweaters
Who doesn’t love a good winter or holiday sweater? Sometimes, it can be hard to find trendy pants or jeans that can be worn with a sweater. Fortunately, leggings are here to save the day with long, bulky sweaters! As a general rule, the bottom of the sweater should extend to the upper thigh area when wearing leggings. The cute combination of tight leggings and long, bulky sweaters is a winter tradition that is sure to stick around for several years.
Shorts and Skirts: Extend Their Lives
While it may not be wise to choose skirts or shorts during the dead of winter, leggings can help to extend their places in the wardrobe into late fall; or, leggings offer the option of bringing them out during early spring. For a trendy bold look, try pairing solid, bright leggings (such as green, red, blue, purple, or pink) with skirts in solid neutrals. Winter is always dark and dreary. It’s never a bad idea to add a splash of color to break up the monotony of the washed out landscape.
Leggings have dozens of uses in a woman’s wardrobe. They can save the day rather frequently, and are one of the most affordable investments a woman can make to refresh her wardrobe. Since they can pair with virtually anything, purchasing leggings in every color of the rainbow is an excellent idea.
