What’s So Great About Leggings?
Rewind ten years and you’d be hard pushed to find anyone in a pair of leggings who wasn’t
on their way to a dance class. However, the humble stretch legging has become a fashion
hero of modern times, enduring years of fashion changes and still going strong. But what’s so
great about leggings?
Leggings: Guess | Jacket: the boyfriend's
Ahhhhh, we all remember the bliss we felt when first slipping out of our tight jeans into a pair
of leggings. From that moment on we were sure we’d found our stretchy new best fashion
friends! Leggings are quite simply one of the most comfortable items of clothing available,
making them perfect for everything from running around in the daytime, to heading out for
romantic five course meals. Fitting, quite literally, like a glove, the soft fabric of leggings
doesn’t chafe, rub or itch. Looking good has never been so comfortable!

thing. In fact, you could fill a wardrobe full of leggings in different styles and colours and still

No matter what your size, there’s a flattering way to wear leggings. Just remember the golden
rule that, unless you’ve got the figure of a supermodel, bottoms are best covered! Longline
smocks, tees and dresses are the perfect match for leggings. If wearing leggings to work out
in, a simple vest and a hoody are all that’s required!

leggings can’t adapt to, making them the hardest working items in your wardrobe.
