BONNERS FERRY — Everyone has their own style of clothing that they wear, from tailored business dress to casual wear. Most people want clothing that is both comfortable and looks good.

Jan Irving has a classy spirit and dresses to match, so finding the Legging Army company brought her the best of both worlds: she could make a profit while wearing comfortable and stylish clothing.

The online store has many different legging patterns and shirt styles in a variety of sizes, so every body type has a choice of various products.

The soft, breathable fabric of both the leggings and shirts make them comfortable for all seasons, as well as the versatility of outfits.

“I love leggings because I am short, and jeans are a pain because you’re always yanking at them,” said Irving. “For me, I have nerve damage all over my body, so soft is in for me.”

Irving accentuates her style with long sweatshirts, sometimes artfully modified; jewelry, some of which she made by hand; and fancy hats.

“I love hats, they keep my head warm,” said Irving. “In church they do air conditioning halfway through, and I am sitting there thinking, I’m glad I have my hat on. Some people don’t recognize me without a hat on.”

After disposing of her last pair of leggings from the 1980s, Irving began to notice the return of leggings to modern fashion.

“I started paying attention to modern styles, and I saw women wearing boots and leggings. I am up here in Bonners Ferry, so how am I going to do this,” Irving said. “A girl I know was selling the leggings and shirts at a show that we went to in Ponderay, and I asked her how she was getting these, and she gave me her card.”

That little exchange brought a whole new color to not only Irvings wardrobe, but her life as well. Being a representative of the company not only gives her discounts, but allows her to turn a profit as she promotes her favorite clothing to people in the community as well as people online.
