Very Velvet

I love wearing leggings. When you’re sitting for hours, wearing something with a thick, stiff waistband and a button and zipper is just not comfortable. Now that I’ve worn leggings/jeggings, I know that I can never go back. I don’t know what I’m going to do if or when they go back out of style… buy a ton of them and stockpile, I guess?

But I also like to look nice, and not just sloppy – and sometimes leggings just feel too casual. So what’s great about leggings being in right now is that there are dressier options. I’ve already written about my obsession with leather leggings here, but I recently discovered velvet leggings, too – another new favorite.

I actually wore this outfit on Thanksgiving – I wanted something that looked nice for our family meal, but was also comfortable, since it is a holiday centered around eating! They were so comfy, but definitely looked more polished than just regular black leggings. They’re festive, too – I think they’re perfect for the holidays. I’m sure they’re going to pop up in some more pictures throughout the rest of the winter, because I’m definitely adding them to my rotation.

I can’t share my exact leggings because, like most of my pants, they’re actually a kids size. Women’s sized pants are so long on me (even petites) that it’s not even worth it. Luckily for me, though, there are some really well-dressed kids out there!

I’ve been seeing velvet popping up all over – not just in leggings, but in tops and dresses, too. I picked some of my favorites in the widget below.
