Tips on Rocking Leggings: Part One

January 16, 2015

Leggings can be the most comfortable item of clothing you own, so the only point of contention for many is how to look stylish when wearing them.

Inspired by the launch of Adea’s new Perfect Jersey Knit Leggings, I wanted to share some tips on Legging Styling, which will be a two-part series and will begin with the basics of what to look for in a pair of leggings.

1. Fabric. Fabric. Fabric.

Remember the outcry when it was discovered Lululemon Athletica’s yoga pants were see-through? No matter if you are in a yoga studio, outside playing with your kids or dining at a restaurant, no one wants to have see-through pants.

Therefore, choose leggings with a thick fabric, such as Adea’s Jersey Knit Leggings. Touch the fabric, stretch the fabric and play with the fabric. You'll quickly begin to tell the difference in the fabrics that are on the market and quickly realize not all are thick and opaque, which is what you want.

2. Quality

I’m sure you have experienced this- you buy a pair of leggings (or even jeans) and after a wear or two, you have saggy knees and sometimes a saggy bum! No one wants this look.

Hence, keep in mind quality when looking for a pair of leggings. Even if you pay a bit more, you are more likely to get more wears out of them because you’ll be more inclined to wear them when they are flattering versus if they are crumpled up in your drawer due to their stretched out appearance

3. The Waistband

Although a feature on leggings that may often be overlooked, it’s an important one. When you put on these comfy pair of leggings only to find a thin elastic waistband that is cutting into you, it’s hard to feel confident, let alone stylish or even sexy.

Hence, look for a wide waistband that is a higher rise, as it will hit you in a more flattering part of your body. This is a feature of Adea’s new Jersey Knit Leggings that caught my attention.



Stay tuned for my next post when I offer styling tips on helping to ensure you look the most stylish version of yourself when you don a pair of leggings.

Awkwafina is Going Strong

November 13, 2019

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.

A Thrilling and Safe Experience

November 06, 2019

I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
