Leggings For The Summer

Usually I think of leggings as something you'd wear
only during the fall. But as I was browsing the Next,
I couldn't help but change my mind. You can wear
leggings anytime!

Unlike skinny jeans(which I thoroughly avoid), leggings
are perfect to wear during the summer, either as pants
or under mini skirts and dresses. Black is always the
preferred shade, but colored leggings are wearable too
(as long as you stay away from floral printed leggings!)
Here are a few more tips!

If you're wearing leggings as pants, please wear a
tunic or some other billowy blouse. It looks much more
flattering and balanced.

If you're a little on the short side and you're
wearing cropped leggings, trade flats for wedges or
even heels to add a little height.

All the clothes shown above are available at Next.
Unfortunatly I can't shop here, but I will be on
the lookout for leggings!

Yes, everyone should follow that advice that when wearing leggings, please wear a blouse that covers your bottom! hehe.
