CLOSET STAPLE: Printed Leggings
Jeans, shorts, skirts, tights . . . Even though there are so many options available when it comes to legwear, my favorite will always be printed leggings. They're affordable, easy to wear, and instantly spice up one's entire ensemble. Their versatility is evident in the fact that they can be worn by anyone no matter what your personal style is -- whether you enjoy mixing different prints and patterns together in one outfit like I do, or if you prefer a more minimalist approach. Whatever your style philosophy is, printed leggings will always find their way into your wardrobe!
You know that one man you keep coming back to? The one that, even though sometimes you date other guys casually, you'll always return to by keeping him as a "reserve"? Well, that's what printed leggings are to me. Sure, I enjoy wearing my comfortable jeans as much as the next girl, but leggings will always be my main lover.
One of the things I love about printed leggings is that they do all the work for you -- you just throw them on and pair them with even your most basic shirt or top and you still end up looking eye-catching.
Sometimes when I'm too lazy to put together a striking ensemble, I just rely on my trusty leggings. I don't even have to carefully choose one -- I just grab the first printed ones in my closet that I can find! Everything is easy from then on. No matter what I pair them with, I know I'm good to go. If I'm feeling laidback, I just go ahead and wear them with a black shirt and sandals. If I want to look more daring, then I'll just opt for a top and a printed blazer.
The point is, printed leggings make my life so much easier (just like a man should).
I don't have a favorite brand when it comes to leggings. I just buy the ones that catch my attention whenever I'm out shopping.
How about you? Do you have one specific shop where you buy yours from? I've recently ordered a few solid and printed leggings online from Zalora and I fell in love with the quality of the items (after all, quality is better than quantity). You can check out their site to see their selection.
