Are you familiar with the George Michael song, “I’m Never Gonna Dance Again”? Of course you are.
Well for the past 3 weeks or so, I’ve been singing it, but I’ve changed the lyrics to, “I’m never wearing pants again.”
Because seriously, I’m never wearing regular “pants” again. Leggings have entered my wardrobe, and please lord, let them never go out of style (no doubt this sentence will make me laugh out loud 20 years from now, but I really mean it right now!).
I have resisted leggings for a few years now. I mean, does it really sound like a great idea to wear something so skin tight when you aren’t exactly fit as a fiddle???
So I avoided. But my BFF Leslie told me back in August that she really loved her leggings and found them to be a friend to busy moms who might be looking for something that looks better than yoga pants but that is just as comfy.
I’ve been sporting the No nonsense tights and leggings and it was true love from the moment I put them on. They are SOOOOO soft. And yes, they are fitted, but if you style it right, they look great! I have found two tricks. First, make sure your rear end is covered up. That goes a really long way toward making leggings not look unfortunate. Long sweaters are very in style now, and this is also a great way to wear a dress, even in the winter months. Here’s my weekend look I put together on polyvore:
My other trick is to wear riding boots with leggings. They look so great together! I spent $50 on a pair of riding boots as my “investment” piece for the season (does that give you a clue about my wardrobe budget???). I think leggings look even better than jeans with them. I’m actually wearing this combo even as I type this.
I think No nonsense leggings are a really affordable way to greatly enhance your wardrobe this year. I’m planning on buying another pair. Black, which I have, is an absolute must, but I’d also like to venture out into something a bit more colorful. I’d also recommend No nonsense leggings because I can say from experience that these are NOT see-through. It is always so awkward to see someone sporting leggings and to know that they didn’t make sure they got the non-see through kind. Yowzers!!!
No nonsense leggings are also easy to find. They are available at most drug stores and mass retail stores! No having to hunt them down online or at specialty stores!
Be sure to keep up with No nonsense on Facebook as that is a great way to hear about the latest affordable fashions. I’d also suggest that you follow the handle @BeNononsense if you are on Twitter. They tweet out some cool pics to inspire you!
No nonsense has also recently partnered with Jill Martin, who is their new brand ambassador. She is, in my humble opinion, such a breath of fresh air because she knows how to marry cutting edge style with everyday life. By that I mean that she makes fashion statements that are adorable AND practical. That’s exactly the type of look I’m seeking!
