Tights and capris and spandex, oh, my! I have a serious love affair with leggings. Some girls have a high-heel obsession, but I’m all about the lower body spandex, baby! When I’m teaching a fitness class, I prefer leggings or tights to shorts (better butt coverage!). When I’m out and about, I wear a pair with a long sleeve shirt, a puffy vest, and a cute pair of boots. Even though I’m technically wearing gym clothes, I don’t scream “gym rat.” Leggings have come a long way from just being sporty and comfortable; they are super cute and majorly in style. And if you don’t think you can pull off a legging, wrong! Every body type can rock a good tight in AND outside of the gym! Go bold, have fun, and be crazy. If you don’t think you can wear stripes or pattern–yes you can! As a matter of fact, a bold pattern actually camouflages and minimizes! Ready to get your legging love on? Here are 10 fun and functional styles (aka you’re not constantly pulling them up) to rock this winter!
Blue Python Legging | Primsport
