Guidelines to Wearing Leggings

Every once in a while you just want to throw on a pair of leggings and a sweater, that was today for me. Partly because I just wanted to wear this super cute blush sweater, partly because I’m very busy today and this is always a simple way to look cute, given you follow a few guidelines.

  • Always wear a top that hits below your bottom. Leggings leave little to the imagination but that doesn’t mean you have to, adding a longer top even a tunic is ideal and depending on your leggings can sometimes give the illusion that you’re actually wearing skinny pants.
  • Throw on some boots. OTK or even ankle boots, just throw on something substantial. This gives your look a little dimension, especially with taller boots. Plus the added bonus of covering the ankle helps hide the fact that your wearing leggings.
  • Find the right thickness. Leggings come in all thickness and fabrics, I love a basic cotton pair just as much as the next girl but be sure you’re purchasing a pair that isn’t see thru. Nothing is worse than bending over and giving everyone behind you a look at your undies THROUGH your pants. EW. Avoid this by trying them on before buying, & I know you “don’t need to try on leggings because you know you’re a small” and you totally are, but still, for me.
  • Layer. Wear a longline cardigan or light jacket (like my trench below) to give your basic look a little umph with layers. This is also a great option if you passed on the longer top, a blazer or cardi can give you that extra coverage in the back while also lending some chicness to your overall get up.
  • Accessorize. You know to always finish your look with a few details but this is so much more important when wearing a simple look. Add delicate necklaces or rings for a casual, classic vibe or throw on a scarf and sunnies for instant glam.
