Biggest Vote Of Our Generation… are leggings pants?

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Did you think I was talking about the Presidential election!? The Trump vs Clinton election is pretty big too, but the real debate is over if leggings are pants!

source

Against  – You basically can see right through them, and show way too much!  Additionally, wearing them as pants is like a mullet, you have this casual pant trying to be business… nope.

source

For – They’re super comfy, like you’re lounging around but actually your not… or could be… because they’re super versatile for a lot of outfits and occasions, and they fit inside boots/booties no problem.

The Winner – What it comes down to is that not all leggings are created equal!  Fabric, style and how you wear them make all the difference.

These are my vote for the leggings/pants debate that will have you all for it.  They stand out because they are thick, like real pants thick, so you can wear them without any fear of sunlight or showing off too much.  They have a style to them, the seaming down the front not only elongates legs but creates a more structured look.  Best of all they have this super fun lace up detail in the back that you can wear tight and keep it close or a little looser and show some skin.  Plus the waistband is a nice banded waist so you can wear them with pretty much any top and avoid that clashing styles (mullet) issue.  They’re just as versatile as any other legging… except maybe you wouldn’t want to wear these to work out in, but chasing after a toddler workout is totally functional in these.  You could also wear them with a t-shirt and sneakers for a casual look or like I did with a split back lace top.  Either way these mark. Tight Laced Pants are the right choice!

What To Wear To Thanksgiving: mark. Chic It Out Pants

I’m sure you’re already planned your Friendsgiving, decided on your makeup look, making your grocery list to make some artichoke dip and homemade cranberry sauce, now what to wear!?! A day who’s sole purpose is to eat (with thanks of course!), there needs to be some functionality to your outfit for expanding tummies and lounging!  The formula of chic leggings + flowing top sounds about right for a Thanksgiving Day look.

The mark. Chic It Out Pants ($34) are the stretchy pants of choice for the day!  They are thick enough that you don’t feel weird wearing them as pants.  The waist band is a little wider so it doesn’t dig into you but stretches nicely for expanding tummies.  And they are chic!  They have a killer tone on tone snakeskin design that give them just a little bit of interest!  So you look like you’ve stepped up your game from those cheap $5 leggings.

Now that we’ve determined your chic easy bottoms go with a nice comfortable loose fitting top!  I’ve got 2 ways to wear it:  dress it up with a chic blouse or keep it casual in a comfy sweatshirt.  If you’re thanksgiving is more of a dinner party type of event go with a blouse, if it’s casual at home go with the sweatshirt!

To go casual go with the mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt ($28, last seen here) pair it with an infinity scarf in a fall print like the mark. All Around Style Scarf ($18) for some extra cozy.  The Effortless Edge Sweatshirt has a more styled cut and detail with the side zipper so again you’re stepping up your game from that college sweatshirt.  Currently the beige is limited in sizes but just for the holidays it’s now available in BLACK!  Even better in my opinion!  You can shop the mark.
