I rarely do a post dedicated to a full rant, but sometimes I just have to! My last full rant around make up or fashion was a while ago based around false advertising so give me some credit.
Now the majority of us love wearing leggings; a staple item in our wardrobes. We can wear leggings with almost anything and in almost anyway possible. Having said this please be aware of the key word 'almost'!! Sometimes we have to remember that leggings although comfortable and easy to wear, they can be unflattering for some. We must also remember that there are certain rules if you like that we must remember when wearing leggings.
Take this image for instance....
There are many things this female is doing wrong, and although when I first saw this photo my initial reaction was to laugh after a while I started to think she is not the only culprit of this fashion disaster. I do not however feel sorry for this girl, if your opinion of me changes because I posted this photo firstly it is not to humiliate this girl, she did this herself by stepping out her house dressed like this. There are so many females around who do just the same thing and do not understand the importance of how to wear leggings correctly, especially thin leggings.
Please read my view on the following of how I believe leggings should be worn:
Leggings come in different thickness depending on where you purchase them just like tights. Always stretch a pair of leggings over your hand to see if your skin/hand is visible from the other side, this way you know what can be seen when wearing them. Remember how a pair of leggings look on and off are completely different depending on your size. The thinner the leggings the more skin and underwear can be seen to a passer by.
♥ Always cover your bum
If you choose to wear thin leggings always always always cover your bum there are no if, buts or maybes on this topic it just has to be done. We do not want to see your underwear hence the above photo. If however you are wearing a bralet or crop top for instance on a night out make sure your leggings are of the thick style. I personally believe you can wear thick leggings without covering your bum, pureply because your underwear will not be on show.
If you choose to wear black leggings then try and wear black knickers underneath, again we can see your fuschi pink french knickers and we really don't want to. If you argue this point see the above photo again!! I wont go into personal hygiene for 'that time of the month' it is all personal preference but use this photo as a reference of the possibilities!
So there we have it my own rant on this topic! I see this more and more as each day passes and it won't ever change as some people seem just don't understand.
