Leggings are here to make women feel comfortable and nice-looking at the same time. Of course, this also applies to women over 40. The key is not IF you’ll wear them (you can if you want to, there is no doubt about that), but HOW you’ll wear them. Here are a few reasons why you should wear leggings and a few tips on how to combine them.
First of all, when you are out looking for the perfect pair, pay attention to the thickness of the leggings. If the pair is not thick enough you may feel as though you are wearing tights. Moreover, look carefully at the material you are opting for. Go for one that promises to keep its shape and colour even after extended use. The colours, styles and designs leggings come in are various, so it should be easy for you to find some you can combine with your favourite tops, shirts or dresses. Let’s look through some ideas that may be of assistance.
Most women over 40 feel better and more confident if they cover their bottom area when wearing leggings. This can be easily achieved if you opt to wear your leggings for older women in combination with tunics or long shirts. Besides those, longer cardigans are also a great option for those of you who want to keep a few things hidden, while at the same time looking fashionable and feeling confident. You don’t have to stop here. In fact, you can easily match your skirts and dresses with a pair of good looking leggings for older women – they will cover your legs nicely so that you don’t feel exposed while making you feel good about the whole look.
Next comes colour. Not surprisingly, black is by far the most preferred one of them all. One of the reasons why this is the case is because it covers, it slims and it goes well with everything. But that doesn’t mean that other colours are less flattering. What you choose should depend on your personal taste, not on what other people think or say. If you feel good, you will look good, and that is what really matters. When it comes to shoes, there are hardly any limits there too. You can wear leggings with boots, be it ankle boots, knee-high or over-the-knee ones. For warmer days, you can wear sandals, ballet flats, sneakers or even high-heels – if you feel like it.
Finally, cropped leggings are a variation many women find suitable and fitting. These are shorter in length and look best when worn on a beach or on a cruise ship, for instance, combined with loose long top and sneakers or flat beach sandals. Just remember, leggings are not pants, they are a layer and an item that is to be paired with long tops or dresses.
