How To Wear Leggings

13 Feb

Leggings are currently a hot fashion item. However, they have been a part of fashion from since the 1980’s. In the past, leggings were worn as protection against the cold, and later worn for exercise. Lately, they have become a part of fashion.

Leggings are skin-tight stretchy garments. They come in a variety of styles, colors and textures. Besides plain leggings, there are lace leggings, liquid leggings, printed leggings, and denim-look leggings or “jeggings”. Leggings are  a must-have and a great addition to any closet!

Start with the basic and gradually expand for variety. Invest in a pair of black leggings. This color is the most popular and most versatile. Black goes well with everything so don’t be worried about mixing and matching.
Leggings can be worn as pants but remember that they are skin-tight and leave little to the imagination. If the leggings are textured then one could get away with wearing a short loose top. Otherwise, always wear a top which covers the buttocks and hip area.
Consider your body type and shape when wearing leggings. These highlight all areas of the lower body so bear in mind when putting together an ensemble. Leggings are really meant as accessories and should be worn as that. Pairing them with a short skirt or pants can add warmth especially during the cooler season.
Complete your look with any type of shoe. Leggings look great with boots. Tuck them into the boots for a classic look.  Ankle length boots, with a very small heel, are the perfect way to combine boots and leggings together.  Leggings also provide the perfect opportunity for you to bust out your favorite flats–ballet style, boat shoes, moccasins, oxfords and sandals. Avoid wearing sneakers with leggings unless you are going to the gym. You can take leggings from a casual, everyday look to sexyfab by opting for high platform heels.
Keep these basics in mind when choosing outfits with leggings. Remember that they are good accessories and incorporate them into an ensemble to create an additional flare.
