I would always judge ladies who wore leggings as pants. I mean they are not pants and they are certainly not tights. So how do you wear leggings?

Leggings have become a wardrobe staple but we all don't know how to slay in them, that explains why  "how to wear leggings " was on the list of top google searches in 2014, which makes my post long overdue. Fast forward to today when I am almost getting rid of all my pants and replacing them with leggings. 
They are uber comfortable and slaying in them is just as simple as getting a mega outfit fail. I have read several posts on how to wear leggings and a majority of them mention the kind of top you SHOULD  pair them with. In my opinion how you pair you outfit is a matter of preference. If you want to throw on long top that covers your booty very well, but if your comfortable with your butt sticking out underneath that short top then to each his own. Beware leggings will expose every single curve on your leg, from the thigh to the calf and even the ankle so if you are not comfortable whit that opt for jeggings instead.

Here are a few legging tips  I feel every legging lover should know and follow religiously.

1. Wash them regularly, preferably after every wear. leggings are made out elastic material and the heat from your body wears it out really fast, washing them helps spring them back to shape. 

2. You can hand wash or machine wash your leggings  using cold water, avoid using hot or warm.

3. When buying leggings buy a pair that reaches right above your ankle, anything shorter cuts you off too soon and is not very flattering to any shape.

4. Do not apply heat to your leggings by ironing or in any other form as this will loosen its elasticity.

5. Avoid wearing leggings that have lint balls, they make you look unkempt.

So that's it, my tips on how to wear leggings. Do you have another legging tips you think I should know and how do you prefer styling your leggings (with short or long tops)? do share in the comment section below.

For this particular look, I opted to pair my American Apparel cotton-spandex jersey leggings (from Amazon ) with a loose fit open side top with rubber detail ( From new looks Fashion France branch mim) I loved the writing on the top and I thought I could get away with showing off my bum by throwing on a loose fit top and white faux leather jacket ( thrift )
