Really, I'm super weak for blog contests, and I'm super weak for amazing sewing - so of course this blog is awesome. And what a fun series - favorite fashion trends. The thing is - I'm not fashionable at all! I was super excited to participate today, but also at a loss since I'm not very fashion-forward.
But what I want to talk about today is for anyone - fashionable or not! Patterned Leggings. Bam. Now don't immediately get turned off - they can be awesome. And even I have a pair. And I think you should try some. Look - doable:
And I'm embracing it. Here's why:
--Have you ever put on a pair of leggings? that's why. Very comfy.
--Fun - the pattern brings some fun to the whole look.
--Mom-friendly - an outfit that looks pulled together but wears like sweatpants - that's what all moms need.
So from my perspective, you have to keep a few things in mind:
--Rear coverage - you know what I mean! Longer tops are a must.
--Plain shirts - since the leggings have pattern, you want a plain top - a denim shirt is awesome (as above) and I think oversized sweaters and cardigans are also great.
--Boots - wearing boots pulls in the fall/winter aspect and polishes off the look.
--Accessories - it doesn't need much, but maybe throw on some big earrings to top off your outfit.
Since this fashion trend is in it's second season, it's easier to embrace - it's not so "out there" and more people are on board, which makes it easier to give it a try and not feel too crazy doing so. Go grab yourself a pair of patterned leggings and enjoy the awesomeness!
