How to Wear Shapewear Leggings

Even though I love comfy clothes, I’m not usually a leggings girl. Yes, I wear sporty leggings to gym, sure thing, but almost never outside. I even once turned down an opportunity to style a fashionable outfit with leggings. It was just not my thing… And then I saw built-in shapewear leggings by Svelte. The leather panels make these simple black bottoms look sooo stylish that I instantly was in love. I decided to opt for a sporty look here, but these leggings can easily be worn with chic strappy heels and a structured jacket for an instant night out look. I’m 5.8″ and was not sure if the leggings would be long enough for me, but they fit like a glove and were exactly the right length on me. I was pleasantly surprised to realize these leggings come with built-in #NoMuffinTop waist panel. A huge plus for those who doesn’t have an hour glass figure like me. Did I mention that they are absolutely opaque in case you plan to wear them with short tops and super comfortable too? Chic and practical shapewear. How cool! Recently I was skipping workouts badly. Then I put my Svelte with pockets on and constantly was in the mood for a run or gym workout. Win-win! I’ve added a solid wool sweater, an oversized plaid shawl for extra warmth, plus my favorite lightweight sneakers. I just have no excuse to skip gym anymore : )
