One Pair of Charley 5.0 Denim Leggings, 6 Different Looks

One Pair of Charley 5.0 Denim Leggings Worn 6 Different Ways

I used to be anti denim leggings. I’m not a legging person to begin with so I couldn’t imagine they could look better than a pair of skinny jeans. But when I slipped-or rather tugged-on Charley 5.0’s Denim Leggings ($165) it all made sense. Since there are no zippers, you can wear tight shirts without showing a bulge. And somehow, the material sucks you in like shapewear (these are not a garment that you want to buy big).

Granted, I’d never, ever, ever wear my denim leggings as pants, but as long as the majority of my butt is covered up, the super skinny style is the perfect contrast for all the lonely tunics hanging in my closet. If you can’t afford Charley 5.0’s, try these from Forever 21 for pretty much the exact same look at only 12 bucks!

      I was surprised I liked it too! The top is actually a plus-size shirt from Lane Bryant. It makes an amazing cover-up.
