Leggings are a great way to show off your shapely legs, while still staying as comfortable as if you were wearing pajamas, but picking up a pair that has some ruching detail will add a little texture and interest to a basic outfit. Whether you wear them with an oversized t-shirt and cute flats or a smart tunic and strappy heels, that ruched detail will add that something extra while simultaneously keeping the ankle hem in place. Here are three great pairs of ruched leggings that will give new life to your legging wardrobe.
Do you shy away from leggings because you’ve got a little extra something around the tummy? Then you need to check out leggings from Lisse, which is the French word for “smooth.” The perfect combination of control and stretch for comfort, Lisse’s Ruched Crop leggings will make you look fabulous from waist to ankle. With a hidden tummy control panel, these leggings will handle any lumps and bumps you don’t want, while simultaneously adding attractive ruching at the ankle. You can buy them for $56 at ClassicShapewear.com.
Sleek, smooth, and sophisticated, the ruched leggings from C&C California will be your go-to piece for a smart, urban outfit. In addition to the calf-hugging ruching detail at the ankle, these leggings also have a comfortable fold-over waistband for additional ruching opportunities and tummy-friendly camouflage. A great choice for wearing with statement heels or a chic pair of boots, these can be bought for $64 at Zappos.com.
Channel your inner disco diva and dance the night away in the shiny ruched leggings from Fashion Lab. Heavy ruching from the ankle to the knee creates a great textured effect, while the silver glitter on a black background adds even more interest. Try these with a hot pair of heels, an oversized tee, and black boyfriend blazer for a fun evening look, available for $9.99 at DrJays.com.
