The essential clothing item you need that can make any old outfit look hot!

Updated on November 25, 2012

Leggings are an essential item that every young women/girl needs in her closet! I have so many pairs that I can probably wear a different pair of leggings everyday for a month. The good thing about leggings is that they are cheap and can be found at every clothing and department store you can think of. I have many pairs that I have purchased from minimum 3$ to maximum 12$. They are an inexpensive item that can be worn in sporty situations, or casual. Whatever works for you. I personally love leggings, I even wear them in the winter time underneath my jeans so I won't be cold.

Leggings are easy to pair with anything. During the winter you can wear two pairs so you won't be cold, but in the summer time stick with one pair. I especially love wearing leggings in the winter because you can pair them with sweater dresses, which I absolutely love! Or you can wear them with a regular sweater or shirt, whatever works for you. Put on a pair of boots or Uggs and your set! In the summer time you can wear a loose, long t-shirt with leggings and it looks cute.

There are also leggings that are on the shorter side that you can use to help make you look slimmer. I find that these help for me just as well as spanx, this is just an alternative if you don't have enough money to buy spanx.


I must add this for those of you that don't look in the mirror before you walk out of the house. Please make sure you look at your butt before you leave, because the leggings you are wearing could be see-through! It happens to the best of us so I think it's enough said, just make sure you look at your overall outfit in the mirror before you leave your house!

      Thank you everyone! I once caught my sister walking out of the house wearing see-through leggings! You better believe I made her change, and the funny part is that she had no idea that her butt was all out! Good thing I caught her because she was going to her

      I love leggings on some people, sadly they are not for me. Not a good look for large derriere! Great suggestions though. My daughter layers them with denim skirts for a different look.
