Tights or leggings?
The latest fashion with plus size leggings is to have them made out of a very thin material so that they are almost like tights. This is very trendy because it allows you to show some skin through your leggings.
Showing off your tattoos
If you have tattoos then its really cool to have thin leggings so that your tattoos, on your legs, show through the material – this attracts attention and also allows the colours in your tattoos to compliment the colours on your leggings.
Use your skintones to compliment your leggings
Another benefit of having think leggings is that the tone of your skin also adds to the colour of the leggings themselves. This can look really good if you have thin leggings with their own pattern, but a simple colour like black or grey. Then the tone and colour of your skin creates a colour effect on the leggings themselves.
Plus size patterned tights / leggings
Whilst the thinness of the material is important, so is the pattern on the leggings – in fact this is probably more important because it really makes the leggings stand out and look cool.
