Aussie Curves: Leggings


This weeks Aussie Curves post was too easy- leggings seem to make up 50% of my wardrobe! Now, I read a pretty nasty post by a fashion blogger the other day, who said that leggings can never be a fashion item...... Well I think it's all about how you wear them! Fashion is about self expression and I happen to love rocking some black (or brightly coloured!) leggings!!






Leggings: Avella via BigW
Tunic: Yours Clothing
Jacket: Target
Necklace and Beanie: Equip
Heels: Torrid

I love leggings. Seriously. They go with everything, are super comfy and crazy cheap! Whats not to love?! There are so many styles available now too, I have all different lengths and embellishments. These ones have a funky ankle zip detail but I have others with studs, lace, leather strips, cut-outs and even rad patterns!

Don't you think there is something effortlessly cool about a mid-thigh mac jacket- even better, this jacket was a freebie from Suger Coat It!








So tell me, what do you think of leggings??
Fashion statement or fashion faux pas???

  1. You look absolutely stunning, your smile is beautiful and those leggings look brilliant on you. It ain't what you wear it's how you wear it, you've got style and class. Thin leggings worn like trousers is never good but layered up like yours is perfect. x

  2. You look gorgeous! I think leggings styled like this is fine, but worn as trousers with short t-shirts; no.

  3. I love leggings! I don't wear them a lot because I don't always love them on me but I think you look beautiful in them! And I think that whomever posted the statement about them not being a fashion item has some narrow views about fashion and we should feel bad for them. If you can't express yourself through fashion and have a good time with it, what's the point?

  8. I love leggings and wear them under dresses and tunics. My fashion staple! I personally think they should only be worn with something long enough to cover the derriere as they usually show far more than anyone wants to see, but that's just my view.

    I love the whole ensemble- especially that gorgeous tunic! xx

  10. I think people that say x isn't fashion dont understand it, it's all about self expression and each person will interpret in their own way. People should wear what they want when they want :) you as always look adorable
    Xx

  12. Yup, leggings have been a staple for me this winter. And I think fashion bloggers shouldn't tell people how to dress or lay down any rules- it's all about what you like and feel comfortable in. I love the way you smile in your photos, you always look so happy! :-)

  18. love the styling of the leggings and the tunic with the jacket. And that street shadow pic is amazing......

  19. I love this outfit on you! LEggings are perfect for adding a bit of warmth when wearing dresses :) I think once everyone tries leggings they change their mind about how "unfashionable" they are - it's all in what you wear them with :) As long as people wear them with a dress or long tunic top - I'm not a fan of the leggings as pants trend. Maybe I'm not fashion forward enough! haha

  20. Agreed! That shadow pic is AH-MAZING! x

  21. I'm more of a full stocking or knee high sock girl than a leggings girl BUT I completely disagree that they can never be a fashion item, its all in the way you wear them (Although I'm not a fan of them as pants, they're better under a skirt or something). And you totally prove that point, you look adorable. Also you have an amazing smile.

  28. Ok, so I'm just going to admit right now that I'm totally stealing this outfit idea for when it finally cools down here. Except maybe the hat though, because my giant head can't keep a hat on to save it's life. LOL :D You look fantastic as always, babe! <3
