So these are the Express Sleek Spandex Leggings (also called liquid leggings by others..same thing diff. retailers).
Advantage: Emphasizes your legs and gives you a hard, sexy edge! Solid material so you can wear them as pants! Difference between leggings and tights!
Disadvantage: Emphasizes your legs!!!! If your legs are not toned these leggings are going to highlight every dimple, cellulite, etc. The shine/gloss leggings can also make your legs appear bigger than they actually are!
Nice print! Daring but not too eclectic!
The lighter in color your leggings the bigger your legs look! Simple rule: Bright/lighter colors magnify, darker colors minimize!
Simple regular leggings with no shine or patterns! These are great and tend to be less problematic than the shiny, spandex leggings.
Now I am an advocate of purchasing quality brands however, I stalk the sales to do so :). Having said that Forever21 has some tights not leggings for 4.50 which work pretty well for the price. So start there, work the style and stalk the brands :)
That's the Sc00p from the St00p!
