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.

Dolce & Gabbana Rock

November 07, 2018

After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.

There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.

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.
