If you know me in person, you know that I’ve never been a “leggings as pants” kinda girl. I used to rock them in high school underneath my denim minis (lol), and of course wear them when I very occasionally work out, but have never worn them truly as pants. I think it harkens back to all those episodes of What Not To Wear – when I even consider it as an option, I hear Stacey and Clinton’s voices in my head forbidding it. But what about these Lularoe leggings that everyone seems to be talking about?
Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely love being comfortable. When I heard about these famed Lularoe leggings, I thought they must be too good to be true. People claimed they were the softest leggings they owned, completely opaque (aka no accidental sheerness when bending over), and last forever. I took all these claims with a grain of salt, thinking “We’ll see about that” as I slipped them on.
Well, SEE WE SHALL. Slice my head off and boil it for dinner, because man, was I wrong. I stood in the mirror, slack-jawed in admiration at how the Lularoe leggings hugged every curve without accentuating the wobbly bits. The material was softer than a baby lamb and felt like angels caressing my skin. And can I tell you that these leggings are as opaque as a pair of black jeans, even when you bend over? Because they are. I tested it out myself to save you the embarrassment.
So… the question now becomes: how often is too often to wear leggings as pants? I’m sad when I have to take these off to wash them, which is a sign that I definitely need more pairs. They come in about a billion colors and patterns, too, so I can wear a different pair every day of the week. Or wear the same black pair and hope that no one notices.
Anyway, enjoy the outfit pics. This is one of my favorite casual weekend outfits! The top is also from Lularoe and it’s called The Classic T. You can wear this one a million different ways, but I tied a knot at the side to give the top a little more shape and give some waist definition.
