They are comfy, easy to put on, and most of all, they are cheap and come in a bunch of colors. But have you ever thought that maybe those leggings you have in your closet don't fit you at all and they're not meant for you? I mean, we are all allowed to wear whatever we want, that's a fact, but you know there are always better alternatives to enhance your silhouette and make you look good in general.  

Here are some simple rules you can follow and then determinate if maybe this piece of clothing suits you or not.

EN ESPAÑOL:

Aquí te expongo algunas reglas simples que puedes seguir y así determinar si los leggings son para ti o no.

SIX RULES FOR LEGGING USE
(6 reglas básicas para el uso de leggings)



1. Make sure you are not replacing your jeans or pants for leggings (asegurate que no estás remplazando tus jeans o pantalones por leggings).

This can be very tricky but at the same time it is common sense. Leggings are not pants and you're pretty much going naked on the streets if you're only wearing this piece, specially if you are not covering your butt with a long top. Maybe, just maybe, if you are going to the gym to work out, leggings are for you.

Puede ser engañoso pero vamos a aplicar el sentido común. Los leggings no son pantalones y con seguridad te vas a sentir (o te verán) como si hubieras salido a la calle desnuda, especialmente si no estás cubriendo la mayor parte de tu trasero con una camisa o camiseta larga. Puede haber una excepción en el gimnasio. Tal vez.

2. If you are overweight, think twice about leggings (Si tienes sobrepeso, piensa dos veces antes de usar leggings).

There are beautiful plus-size ladies who can pull leggings off, but some others look like they are about to rip them off just by walking or sitting down. Leggings are like a second skin so they reveal pretty much everything, so if you have cellulite or very thick tights, choose a pair of beautiful high-top jeans instead of leggings. Trust me.

Hay mujeres de contextura gruesa a las que les luce bastante los leggings, pero hay otras a las que se les ve "doloroso y simplemente desagradable". Recuerda que los leggins son como una segunda piel y revelan demasiado, así que si tienes celulitis o piernas muy gruesas, es mejor que prefieras un par de jeans clásicos bota recta, en vez de unos leggings.

3. Make sure the leggings fabric is not see-through or they are not fitting you very tight (Asegúrate  que la tela de los leggings no sea muy translúcida o que no te queden demasiado apretados).

There's nothing worst that seeing a woman with see-through leggings that show her underwear line, or even worse, her entire underwear. White or nude leggings are a huge no-no for everyone, and don't trust 100% black leggings because they can show your business as well, and even more if they are way too tight.

No hay nada peor que verle a una mujer la línea de la ropa interior, y aún peor, cuando se le ve al completo (con todo y estampados-texturas). Los leggings blancos o color piel son un gran error para cualquiera, y no confíes del todo en los leggings negros porque con estos también se notan bastantes detalles, en especial si te quedan extremadamente apretados.

4. Prints against cellulite (Usa leggings con estampados para disimular la celulitis).

Like I told, leggings are like a second skin, so if you have cellulite or very thick legs, they are gonna show very much if you use them. Hide your cellulite by wearing leggings with a intricate print, they can help out a little bit in this arena. But making your legs appear thinner? Not so much.  

Como comentaba, los leggings son como una segunda piel, así que si padeces de celulitis o muslos muy gruesos, se notarán con el uso de esta prenda (generalmente de forma muy desagradable). Disimula la celulitis con leggings que tengan estampados creativos y expresivos. Ten presente que esto puede ayudar a ocultar la celulitis, pero no el tamaño de los muslos. 

5. Camel toe disaster ¡Avoid it! (Evita que se marquen zonas que no quieres mostrar)

Talking about leggings revealing everything underneath, one of the worse things has got to be the horrible camel toe, don't wear this clothing piece so high-up, it's not necessary. By avoiding this you're gonna make yourself a huge favor, and a huge favor to the rest of the world. (See picture above, disgusting).

Otra de las cosas desagradables que pueden ocurrir con el uso de leggings es cuando se revela la zona genital femenina, en algunas ocasiones, sin dejar nada a la imaginación. Evitar subir mucho los leggings para evitar que se marquen zonas que no nos convienen.

6. Hide your butt (oculta tu trasero).

Or at least try to show it just a little bit. You can hide it by wearing a long top, shorts, or a dress over them. There's something so tacky with women wearing leggings and showing their butts, and then again, not only their butts but their hello-kitty underwear. Yes, we can see it.

O por lo menos trata de ocultarlo un poco. Puedes hacerlo usando una camisa, camiseta, blusa o chaqueta larga. Hay algo muy vulgar con algunas mujeres que tratan de mostrar su trasero con esta prenda, y no solo su trasero, si no que accidentalmente revelan su ropa interior.

7. They are NOT pants (Wait, did I already say that?), Los leggings no son pantalones (ya lo dije, verdad?)

Write it down on every leggings you have.

Pon una nota sobre todos los leggings que tengas para que lo recuerdes siempre.
