There are some things to consider, though:. They have some really cute T-shirt dresses in brights, spots and stripes which reminded me of this dress. Thanks for doing your extensive blog! They are also an excellent way to wear your leggings if you want to be very comfortable in your outfit or dress very casual.
I saw pictures of Helen Mirren too. I agree with Aileen that it looks quite dressy, but in a perfectly casual way, if that makes sense! I discussed this here: Very stylish, very good outfit for the event and last but not least, it makes you look good. That dress shows off your figure. Did you sit in the shade? This is a fabulous outfit for the occasion! The length of your leggings is just right for summer, also mid-calf is something I like. Save this outfit as well for your visit to Europe.
Even in Wimbledon you would be dressed appropriately for the event. Just add sunglasses and a hat. I love the outfit. It has been so much fun. Makes for great conversation.
Sylvia — wait until you see the Michael Kors Runway! He showed a lot of leggings — some the same length as your white ones! And he had a lot of cobalt mixed with black and white like the outfit you posted the other day. He also showed orange — on guys and girls — and camo print everything including a coat that I did not find hideous. He is probably the best American Designer for sportswear looks — real clothes that real women can wear in real life.
No one does a ball gown like Mr. His 14 little black dress is perfection. His clothes are always classic and elegant.
He paired black and brown with turquoise 16? I am filing that idea away. Yes, there were some great looks there. Nothing really too new and in my opinion far too many too wide shoulders and oversized jackets. And way too dark. I agree I like that brown turquoise combination too. Makes brown a whole lot more interesting…. This is a cute and sporty outfit that can be wear at many sporty events, well with the exception of hockey! A very cute and sporty look. You look great as always! This is even a good idea when traveling from cooler to warmer climates — wear the leggings and a cardigan on the plane and take them off when you reach your destination: Love this sporty look on you and the shorter leggings really appeal to me because they might work for my proportions.
Will have to try it. Thanks for the idea. Polka dots are so everywhere right now! That dress is so cute on you! Your blog is going to be financially detrimental to me, I fear….. Perhaps go through the style challenge articles and make sure you make the right decisions! What a great way to wear a shorter dress You look lovely, comfortable and happy!
The dots are fun with the printed bag. Nice to see somewhere warm! Just visited your blog and love your style and haircut. Sure I would like my blog added to your community page. Thanks for doing your extensive blog! The jewelry of Iris Bodemer is divine.
They have some really cute T-shirt dresses in brights, spots and stripes which reminded me of this dress. They are short sleeves rather than sleeveless. This look is over the top adorable Sylvia! But how is it that leggings this length look so right, but capris not so much?
Each time I look at the photo, I see perfectly balanced proportions and yet you have red flats on, white leggings, and a dress in gray and black. I suspect that the magic of this outfit is largely intuitive…but are they any suggestions, or magic formula for leggings with a dress? And do you think it is a look for those taller than my size? Ah, you are wearing my look!
OMG Sylvia you look ultra chic in all your outfits. Just too good for your age. Thanks for the superb mix n match tips. Tight leggings under dresses work best. Looser leggings run the risk of making you look saggy. They do, however, work under a very loose, flowing dress. In this case, they should match in style and fabric, much the way a Punjabi suit does.
If you're concerned about the look of your knees and calves, a three-quarter length legging worn under a knee-length dress can make the dress appear longer and slim your calves as well. Many women have found this to be a style that improves comfort, adds quirk and calls nice attention to amazing shoes. These days, women can wear miniskirts into their 40s and beyond, as opposed to the days when showing knee was only considered appropriate for much younger women.
If a woman has great legs, there is no reason not to show them off. By the same token, not all those women want to display quite that much bare thigh.
Leggings allow them to have an edgy style, show off their hard work at the gym and feel appropriate. As stylish as leggings under dresses have become, they are still not appropriate for most evening events.
As long as you're going to a casual event, you can wear leggings anywhere, with any kind of dress, at any age. They mix the beauty of tights with the breeziness of a favorite pair of blue jeans, but allow you to wear the girliest items in your closet instead of remaining a "jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.
