what to wear with leggings

Leggings are an essential part of a woman’s wardrobe, but are often not worn properly. Most of the time, girls consider this garment as pants. That’s one of the common mistakes that must be immediately corrected. Leggings are not a type of pants and should never be worn as such. Leggings are actually tights that should go with another garment above it. For a simple guide on what to wear with leggings, read below.

Long (and Loose) Tops

The cardinal rule of wearing leggings is to wear a top long enough to cover at least half of your butt. Since leggings are a skin-tight garment, letting everyone see how it hugs your behind may not be the best idea at times. A long top could either be just-above-the-knee dresses that are too provocative without leggings; a long jacket or sweater or a blouse. Just make sure of its length. It’s also best to wear loose tops or something that doesn’t hug your body as tightly as the leggings do, otherwise it will make you look uncomfortable.

The Right Shoes

The right shoes to wear with leggings usually depend on your entire outfit. Black boots, either high cut or low cut, usually do the trick. Leggings can also look good with flat shoes and even flip-flops. If you’re going to wear leggings at work and would want a more corporate look, you can switch to using closed-toe heels.
