The Best Things to Wear With Leggings, Jeggings and those Skinny Jeans

Skinny pants, including leggings, jeggings, and skinny jeans, are a fashionable addition to any wardrobe and open up a world of possibilities for women to be stylish and comfortable. Lots of things go with skinny pants, but it can be overwhelming to find the right items with so many options available. Show your style with the best things to wear with those leggings and jeggings.

Chic High-Shafted Boots

It’s easy to turn a basic pair of skinny pants into something amazing with a good pair of high-shafted statement boots. Flat riding boots with a loose sweater and leggings makes a perfect outfit for running errands, or you can dress things up with heeled tall boots, jeggings, and a leather jacket for a chic outfit for a night out.

Baggy Button-Down

One of the easiest ways to look put together is to pair your skinny pants with an oversized button-down shirt. Try a white or chambray shirt with light jeggings for a casual look, or wear a patterned button-down with dark skinny jeans and heels for a more office-appropriate outfit. It’s hard to go wrong with this combination, so play around with different tops and pants to find the perfect look that is effortlessly sophisticated.

Basic T-shirt

Skinny pants can make even a simple t-shirt look stylish. Wearing a simple t-shirt or a graphic tee is a great way to show some personality while still be comfortable as you’re out and about. For an edgier look, try an oversized graphic t-shirt tucked into distressed skinny jeans with a denim jacket, or go for a plain t-shirt and fun leggings and tennis shoes for a stylish outfit for running around town.

Bright Blazer or Jacket

Even worn-in skinny pants can go to the next level with a great blazer. Adding a simple accessory can make the pants perfect for the office or just create a chic ensemble for a night out. A stylish blouse, classic pumps, and a tailored blazer work well with dark skinny jeans for a stylish office look, and an oversized sweater, bright blazer, and distressed jeggings can take the outfit out on the town. In general, try to pair bright blazers and jackets with darker washed pants for a more sophisticated look. The same idea also applies throughout the winter—a fun statement jacket can dress up any pair of skinny pants and make it appropriate for the season and stylish.

Comfortable Active Wear

Skinny pants don’t always have to be dressy—they also look great dressed down. Pair a running tank with leggings and tennis shoes for a comfortable athleisure look that can take you from running errands to running at the gym. An oversized hoodie and sneakers works great with jeggings to keep you comfortable and street stylish for just about any activity.

Stylish Tunic

Some women are scared to wear shorter shirts with skinny pants, but tunics are the perfect flattering option that look great with all kinds of skinny pants. Tunics tend to hit around the mid-thigh and can be worn a number of ways. Try it with a belt and skinny jeans for a dressier look to highlight an hourglass figure, or wear a fun patterned tunic with leggings for a stylish look that is flexible and comfortable.

Mini Dress

Part of the beauty of skinny pants is that they can extend many other items in your wardrobe, including shorter skirts and dresses. A short summer dress can be worn with leggings during the colder months—just add a cute pair of booties, a jacket, and a scarf to make it more appropriate for the season. Even a fancier dress can be made more casual by pairing it with leggings and flats or tennis shoes for a pulled together look that can take you anywhere.

When you know how to wear them, skinny pants can become a staple of your wardrobe and open your closet to many new clothing ideas. Get creative with what you wear with skinny pants and enjoy the comfort and style that comes from the pants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reviewed – Heat Holders Thermal leggings

There is one big elephant in the room that needs to be revealed before I write this post. I hate leggings. I have tried to like them, I got a few pairs in black to wear under shorter length dresses that I thought were a bit too indecent for me to wear with just tights, but frankly, I hated them. They wrinkled on my knees, seemed to roll off my tummy and just about drove me to distraction. My leggings were very quickly consigned to the recycling bin.

But when I was asked if I wanted to review a pair of thermal leggings from Heat Holders, I said yes very quickly. Why? Well, I’d reviewed Heat Holders thermal socks before and I’d been really impressed by how warm and soft they were. (read that review here.) The second reason was school run. It had become increasingly cold on the school run in the mornings, and as I was still insisting on wearing dresses, I needed to improve my level of warm layering. Thermal leggings seemed a great idea.

And I was right, Heat Holder thermal leggings are brilliant. The first thing I would say about them is that the top resembles a thick pair of tights rather than traditional leggings, so that is how I wore them. They were also not as thick as I expected them to be, not bulky at all, so actually perfect for wearing under dresses and tunics. But they were just so warm and toasty due to the softly brushed inner which helps to lock in warmth. I first wore them on a really windy day, and although I was cold in general, my legs were not, and because my boots would easily fit over the leggings, the look was still feminine.

The leggings have so much to recommend them. They are stretchy enough to be comfortable to wear, and they do not roll down over the tummy, or wrinkle at the knees. (I spend a lot of time playing on the floor with my son so this is important to me.) I also love the fact that they are long enough to go right down to my ankles – I often find leggings come up too short on my legs – another reason I have hated them in the past. The plum colour was another plus point. I wear a lot of pinks and purple shades so these are a great match. I am now going to invest in a black pair which will be very versatile.

These leggings are long enough to reach to the ankles and contain plenty of stretch.

These leggings are just perfect for anyone who spends time outdoors, whether it be working outside, watching children playing football, doing the school run, or just taking long walks on cold winters days. They retail at just £8, which I think is really reasonable for such a great product.

 

 

Jessie J – Her best Looks

She adds the glamour to The Voice, the touch of femininity on a panel chocked full with testosterone. Jessie J is currently one of the most photographed and lusted over women in the World at the moment, and her wardrobe inspires avid admiration from her legions of fans.

Jessie’s wardrobe has a tomboyish edge. On The Voice we have no Cheryl Cole style evening dresses or Tulisa form-fitting mini’s, Jessie opts for skin-tight leggings and leather trousers teamed with duster and kimono style jackets in a sea of bold primary colours. Jessie’s figure is amazing, she knows she can get away with the form-fitting catsuits that would have many of us crying into our puddings, and so often looks like some futuristic super hero, rather than a sex symbol. This may explain why women love her so much.

But Jessie can do glamour. At the glamour awards she looked gorgeous in a leopard print Dolce and Gabbana strapless dress, whilst her silver evening gown at The Grammys won her style plaudits everywhere. And she has a strong beauty look, with Cleopatra bangs that can often be styled into 20s style waves, or a long sleek ponytail whose severity balances out her strong eye make-up.
