Wet look leggings – Yay or Nay?

Wet look leggings, matte look leggings, faux leather leggings, leather leggings (whatever you want to call them, they all look the same (well almost)) have been around for quite some time but hardly has any soul (except for celebrities of-course) ever had the audacity to don them. Not because they can’t but because they don’t want to. I don’t blame them because people have mixed feelings when it comes to these leggings. They can either make you look drab or fab. Where some of you can’t see how these leggings could possibly work, there are others who feel that there is nothing as effortless as rocking them.

Now you give your verdict in the end.

ImageThe thumb rule of any sort of leggings is that they have to be worn with something that covers your butt. And the same applies to wet/matte look leggings as well. You may have a gifted bottom but YOU HAVE GOT TO COVER IT when you wear leggings. It can be quite disturbing to look at! πŸ˜› Undoubtedly they give you quite a look – daring if I must say, but at the same time, they make for a covetable fashion statement too. Celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Rihanna.. can’t get enough of them.

Pair them with a floaty button down shirt with collar detailing or perhaps with a long snug vest. Don’t do anything over the top. You can always accessorize this look by wearing a high low cape over the vest. Those of you who don’t want to quite show off your legs, can wear them with dresses. And they do look great! Wet look leggings come into play more in the evening than in the morning, so you have all the more reason to pair them with (short) dresses. And you can never go wrong if you wear high heels with them. They look sumptuously gorgeous.


How can you not love this look? It’s totally wearable, right? You won’t really know how they make you feel until you wear them. They are definitely (in my opinion) the hottest fashion staple and will continue to be.

So, Yay or Nay?

  1. Couldn’t agree more about the butt-covering rule! People should treat them like think tights, not like trousers! I’ve only worn wet-look leggings once, and it was for a Halloween Catwoman costume (and just that once, I broke the butt-covering rule), but my problem with them is the material is really odd, kind of clingy and clammy and spandexy – so I don’t think I’ll be wearing them again. (p.s. thanks for following my blog :))

    • Aww. As far as clothes are concerned, I guess you can break all the rules on Halloween for there are no fashion faux-pas! πŸ˜€
      And you’re most welcome πŸ™‚ Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Yay. The problem is that women tend to combine them with a “maternity style” loose tunic. Not the most attractive. I recently saw a stylish woman combine them with a tight miniskirt, it looked better than it sounds.
