Leggings: when many people think of this article of clothing, they think of “basic” white girls in Uggs and an over-sized sweater sipping on a warm Starbucks beverage. What people don’t know, is that, as a female college student, I feel as though it is a duty of mine to wear leggings. If I didn’t wear leggings at least twice a week, I would just feel so wrong in so many ways.
This article of clothing is so versatile: you can dress it up with a sweater, a statement necklace, and leather ankle boots, or you can pair them with a graphic tee and Sperry’s; the possibilities are ENDLESS! Did I also mention how comfortable leggings are? Pretty darn comfy, ask any woman.
When Lululemon first became a “thing,” I was quite uninterested in buying an over-priced pair of skin-tight fabric. However, after a long internal battle, I decided to take a leap of faith and gave into capitalism when I bought my first pair of Lululemon leggings, and a sports bra…. and a headband. Okay so I went a bit overboard for my first time, but I just wanted to try everything so that I could really ensure that it was all it was cracked up to be.
After my purchase, my wallet was crying, but I was elated to sport my new clothes and see what all the hype was about. My new purchases turned out to be actually life changing! The Wunder Under Pants (I bought them in desert snake deep coal black) were tight, but not to the point where I felt like I was busting out of them, also the fabric was extremely comfortable. They definitely put my Victoria’s Secret leggings to shame. Furthermore, the Hold Your Om II sports bra (heathered black) is one of the best sports bras I own. As a dancer, I tend to have a difficult time finding a sports bra that both gives me support and is super comfortable; however, the Hold Your Om II is definitely worth it and costs the same price as a Nike or Victoria’s Secret sports bra. Finally, I picked up a Skinny Fly-Away Tamer Headband (in ziggy snake butter pink black) simply because it was cute and on sale.
