How to Wear: Crazy Leggings

Crazy leggings...they come in many different colors and patterns. They can also be worn in different ways. 

What I'm going to share with you, are the different ways to wear crazy leggings. 

1st Try Different Lengths: You'll find them from capri styles to ankle; or even mid calf. 

Invest in Key Pieces for Pairing: Try out flowy dresses, tunics, or even a nice plain old sweatshirt. 

Heel Height: If you go for heels; go for a chunky (funky) fun kind of heel. Otherwise choose a more lax look. Try wearing your favorite pair of ballet flats, flat low-heeled boots, or even some cool sneakers. 

Remember, leggings are not pants; with the exception of jeggings. Leggings as pants = overexposure. Be sure to wear a top, skirt, or dress that covers your bum and your front!

Thank you to my readers! 

I have not studied in the fashion industry. I do not try to preach to you on how you should/shouldn't dress. I'm not trained to be a stylist or anything. Being authentic is perhaps the best one strategy that has worked in keeping my blog up and running still. 

I just want to Thank You for reading my blog posts. I really appreciate it! Bloggers, in general, put so much effort into their sites, and it does feel good to be noticed.

The Brighter Side of Things

I notice that in the summer months, I see bright colors everywhere. However, when winter arrives the brightness virtually disappears. I get it...bright colors normally represent the warmer months. When winter gets here, you see more of the browns, blacks and other darker-earth tone colors. 

The problem with the darker colors is that they can become boring. So why not choose to be different this winter and wear some bright colors? I'm not saying that you have to wear them everyday, just try to include them in your wardrobe.

**Note**
Please know that the thing about wearing bright colors is that they will make you stand out. If you're not as confident wearing them, then it can become a nightmare.

If you don't want to wear the bright clothing; go for bright accessories. Choose a bright bauble necklace....or bright bangles.

Or....if you want to try to wear bright colored clothing; layer it up! Wear something neutral (close to your skin tone), then place a bright colored clothing item over it.
