Looking Lovely In Leggings

This morning in New Haven, Connecticut, home of Yale and some of the more charming architecture in the states, I did a segment on the “CT Style” for the ABC local affiliate WTNH, illustrating how Leggings for fall can work for anyone, provided they are worn properly.


Many women tell me the trend is not for them but I beg to differ. Leggings are great when you know how to pair them with your body. Various tops like fingertip length tunics, a chunky sweater—a huge trend for fall, or a dress that might otherwise be a bit too short are perfects mates for leggings. For those of us who are as we say, of certain age, they are the way to go to interpret a trend is very carefully.

Let us know about your favorite leggings, and how you wear them in the comments.

  • Thank you Amanda for the wonderful tips! I am a huge legging fan myself and agree it’s all in how you wear them. I will check out yours on Sassybax.com – I love the idea of leggings that do double (or in this case triple) duty!

    Amanda,
    You look fantastic in this program. And I can really use your advice. I just assumed that, after 50, leggings were out. But maybe I’ll try them…no commitment yet. But I’ll at least ponder them.

  • Thanks again Amanda for your fabulous fashion sense! You always look great and give great advice. I do love Sassybax leggings, they’re a must in my wardrobe!

  • Hey Amanda: You always do inspire. And you definitely have your finger on the fashion pulse–if you are not creating the heartbeat yourself.Thank you for the advice on leggings. I guess I’ll toss out my aqua fishnets.

  • I love your articles so far Amanda! It’s so nice of you to share everything you have learned with us. I really look forward to reading more about your fashion tips and what not to wear. Believe me, some of us need it more than you think. You’ve inspired me to wear my Sassybax leggings today. I feel great!

  • I have always been kind of afraid to wear leggings. I learned today that was because I didn’t feel that women could look glamorous. After seeing some great new ideas on how to maximize the leggings look, I now look forward to wearing leggings this fall! Thanks Amanda!

  • I love fashion and like to be trendy without it costing a month’s pay. Leggings are a great trend and versatile. I purchased some and maybe wore them three times last season. What I was wearing as an outfit wasn’t what I should have been wearing for my body type. Thank you Amanda for your tips. I have reviewed your ideas, made notes and been through my closet re-adjusting and creating new outfits. This season, I’m ready for my leggings.
