October is one of my favorite times of year! Not only because the leafs change and it becomes jacket weather, but because of Halloween its SKULL EVERYTHING. I also am obsessing about leggings; not as pants, but as a fun addition to any dress. I personally love wearing leggings because they not only are a fun addition, but they protect my thighs from chaffing. I have never been a tights girl, they are annoying and they never fit. Honestly I don’t think I have gotten a pair of tights over my lovely large thighs since I have been 12. Don’t miss them and don’t care, I would much rather wear leggings.
These are the most recent leggings I have purchased are from Torrid. Unfortunately they are no longer available, but they do have more options with more skulls on them. Check them out here! These leggings I got are some of my favorite! I honestly didn’t even know they had skulls on them originally. But if you look real close you can see them in the center.
Here is a better picture. I love the safety pins too! A bit of punk rock! I loved the design and detail. I could wear this with a black dress, or a bright colored dress. It’s a perfect way to add a little punk detail in my look. I am always looking for ways to push the corporate boundaries and what better way then fashion!
Here is an even better picture! If you look close you can see the small spades and skull profiles. Torrid yet again hit the punk rock nail right on the head. They are super soft and super stretchy. They wash pretty well- I haven’t had any issues with shrinking.
And sometimes you just need to add a little attitude into your look!
Torrid remains one of my favorite plus size retailers. Especially when it comes to buying leggings that fit. I usually wear a size 28, so I float between a size 4 and a size 5. I do usually order a size 5 when it comes to leggings instead of a size 4 because I don’t like when the elastic gets to too tight around my stomach. I work at a desk most of the day and the elastic can get pretty annoying. I will say on Torrid’s Core solid color leggings here have a nice wide waistband and elastic, which I appreciate. It doesn’t fold onto itself, and always has nice recovery (snaps back into place after being stretched).
