How to Wear Plus-Size Leggings
Choose your fabrics with care: In the winter, keeping warm is key, so before you hit "add to cart," be sure you're picking up bottoms that are made with winter-appropriate materials, such as wool, fleece, corduroy, and faux leather.
Look for moisture-wicking features: Whether you're working out or simply cranked the heat up too high, it's easy to break into a sweat in winter leggings, even on the coldest winter days. This winter, pick up a pair that touts moisture-wicking technology. Moisture-wicking garments are piece made with fabrics that have the ability to pull moisture away from the skin using tiny, built-in capillaries. From there, it moves sweat toward the exterior of the fabric, helping it to evaporate and consequently keeping you dry and comfortable.
Don't forget to have fun: While basic black leggings are a staple every woman should have in her closet, it never hurts to add a little color into the mix to brighten up a dreary day. From evergreen ($29, ModCloth) and metallic gold ($102, Bare Necessities) to chic navy blues ($13, Kohl's), the color options for leggings are endless. Add a bright pair to your wardrobe that's sure to bring on the compliments.
