Tips On Wearing Leggings 
  • Black calf-length leggings can go well with long sweaters. You may wear a long cardigan, in a single solid color of your choice, and pair it with black leggings. Pencil heels will be the appropriate footwear.
  • Flaunt your tunic top with a pair of leggings and thick heels. Choose a tunic that is long enough to cover your hips. You can create a contrast by opting for a sky blue colored top and black or brown pair of leggings. If you want to go for the elegant look, then wear a black tunic top with calf-length leggings and high heel boots of the same color.
  • A bright colored legging can add substance to a dull top. For instance, if you are wearing a pale tank top, you can go for a bright colored legging, to complete the look.
  • Short skirt with leggings is the most popular choice for this season. It is a casual outfit for weekends. Choose a denim or corduroy mini skirt and pair it with leggings in a coordinating color. Slip in a pair of flats, to complete the casual look.
  • For an entirely different look, you may choose a pleated mini skirt and pair it with leggings. Wear a knit jersey top over it. A pair of flats or pencil heels is the right choice to complement the attire.
  • Loose-fitting top, somewhere between mid-thigh or knee length, is a perfect everyday wear. Go for a pair of calf-length leggings. You may wear either flats or heels for the clothing.
  • For women with a short stature, the top should be chosen carefully. Make sure that the top doesn’t fall beyond the mid-thigh, otherwise it will look as if you are wearing the leggings underneath a complete dress.
  • Some dresses falling above the knee length can go well with leggings. Complement a jersey knit dress with a wide belt at the waist with a pair of leggings and high heel boots. You can wear ballerina flats as well.
  • Avoid wearing tight fitting tops with leggings. This is because leggings are already well fitted, so you do not have to opt for a tight fitting top. Stay away from tight shirts, while wearing leggings.
