Leggings may seem difficult to pull off, but with some style know-how you can easily tackle the trend. Keep reading for our recommendations on must-have leggings and what to wear with them.
If you normally shy away from skirts, pairing them with leggings is the perfect way to test the waters without showing off your stems. For the most flattering fit, choose a pair of leggings in a neutral shade (we like these from Yummie Tummie) and make sure they are color coordinated with your top. You can choose a skirt of any length, but we find that a skirt that hits slightly above the knee works best with this look.
Tunics are the perfect top to pair with leggings – especially if you want your leggings to be the star of your outfit. Choose a tunic that hits at your upper thigh to avoid showing off any unsightly lumps or bulges… unless you’re a model, you want to keep your bottom half covered when you’re sporting this look!
Fearful of the dress-over-pants trend? If so, pairing a dress with your leggings is the perfect way to try out the trend on a lesser scale. While a variety of dresses will work, we recommend shirtdresses for a casual vibe.
We’ve found that leggings work best when you’re sporting a cute pair of flats – it goes with the casual, comfy feel of the trend. If you do wear heels, opt for an ankle boot with a stiletto heel – they’ll give your outfit some edge.
