We all went crazy when the leggings trend took us by storm. We all love the fact that it is a bit like wearing supportive tights, it has a tightening effect, the moment we put them on, it instantly tucks our tummy away.
However, there is more than a tightening effect, according to the Guardian Newspaper. It supports and achieves a slimming effect and gives tone and shape to our legs and tummy. But we all have to be cautious, as our muscles can get lazy from relying on our old faithful leggings to tone our legs for us. To use leggings effectively, we should use them as our exercise weapon as well as a fashion statement. Don’t forget to tense your muscles in different places from time to time, using a pulsating movement. That will enhance the toning effect from wearing the leggings.
Apart from the muscle toning, we can gain some fashion credit from wearing this simple garment. There are endless options out there for us to choose from, I personally prefer the printed ones and the array of lacy options.
Printed leggings– There are a few major prints we can all go for in terms of securing the title of fashionista. Like the now very well known Galaxy prints. In the whole of Bloggers sphere, Galaxy prints have adorned the legs of the fabulous bloggers out there. The mystical nature of the designs, with stars scattered among purples and deep blue. The other print that is worth a mention are the tribal prints. Most of these come in symmetrical patterns with horizontal lines. We can choose many different colour combinations from these patterns, from charcoal grey tones, to riots of reds and blues. These particular prints are the most suitable design for autumn and winter. Team these tribal design leggings with their destined friend, the oversized jumper or sweater, it would certainly be a comfortable fashion choice, great for running errands and would look just effortlessly cool.
Lace leggings- there are many different kinds and patterns, it is a great option for the person with a romantic mind or the rock princess in you. There are printed lace leggings, when the beige nylon is over printed with black screen prints. There is another kind like the woven textured material which can come in many different patterns, from quaint little florals to bold, repeated large flowers. Sometimes you can get interesting patterns like skulls or contouring lines, which I particularly think is the sort to covet. They don’t just highlight the outlines of the legs, but they also give an ordinary design an interesting twist. The perfect partner for lace leggings would be our best pal, the little black dress. Of course, we can also team them with a long white shirt/blouse, or any tunic style in beige and light pink tones. It gives a normally quite gothic feeling bottom almost a light girly feel.
