We get it, you have a hole in your leggings and now are trying to figure out how not to show the world that.
A word of caution though. Not all of these or any of these methods might work as leggings are kind of tricky, unlike, say, denim or cotton, because of the materials used.
But, hey! Nothing wrong with giving it a try, right?
So, for a quick and easy way to fix up the hole in your leggings or yoga pants that are inexpensive too… read on!
Use Glue To Patch Over The Hole
You’ve torn your leggings, and you need to fix them fast! Cut a piece of fabric from an old pair of leggings and apply a thin layer of glue to the tear.
Wait for it to dry before pulling up the fabric so that there are no folds or bumps in how it is glued down.
Brush off any excess adhesive with something like an old toothbrush.
(This will only work if there’s not too much damage)
Put On Some Knee-high Socks Over Your Leggings
If you are only wearing leggings, this is an easy way to disguise the hole in your pants if it’s in the lower part.
Just put some knee-high socks or stockings over them and tuck them into your shoes!
Sew On A Patch To Cover Up The Hole
You can sew a patch to cover up the hole in your leggings depending on the fabric.
This works with cotton or other non-synthetic materials.
Materials like polyester or nylon may tear if you try to sew them.
Use The Excess Hem From The Leggings
Cut off the excess bottom hem of your tights and put them over the leggings for coverage (this will only work if there’s minimal damage)
Use An Elastic Band
Wear an elastic band around the area with the hole.
Measure the elastic around your leg and sew it if required before cutting any excess fabric left.
Add Lace Trimming Around The Area With A Hole
To add lace trimming around the area with a hole on your leggings, do these steps:
Find a fabric that is sturdy enough to stay up straight by itself.
Cut out a piece from this material based on measurements taken from where the actual holes are located.
Sew around the hole so that it’d wrap around the legging adding a nice lace feature that’d break things up visually.
Wear A Long Shirt With The Leggings
This is an easy way to cover up the holes if it’s in the top part of the leggings above the knees.
All you need are two shirts: One should be longer than the other as this will serve as your outer layer and hide all evidence that there’s anything wrong at all.
Then find something short enough for underneath, but big enough so it doesn’t show any part of whatever might be going on beneath.
Wear these items together like normal clothes (underwear optional) and voila – no more embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions when people start looking too closely!
Also, you can put on an oversized sweater or tunic top over the leggings or yoga pants or any other tights – just pair them together so that it wouldn’t look odd.
Wear Leggings With Holes
Now, here’s taking a problem and turning it on its head.
If you want to stand out from the crowd – wear leggings with holes as a style statement.
And, if you are the type who wouldn’t mind getting some extra attention – Go ahead! Give it a try!
And while we appreciate anyone embracing individuality by adopting unusual clothing styles, wearing leggings with holes doesn’t seem like much of a risk.
