Leggings Code of ConductMany women like the idea of having classic pieces in their wardrobes. But sometimes, it's good to include current fashion trends as well. Over the past few years, leggings have become a staple clothing item that everybody owns and wears on several occasions. However, not everyone is fully aware about the rules on how to wear printed leggings properly. So, to help you add some fun colors and prints into your wardrobe, we have put together a few outfit ideas.
- Choose a pair that wraps your legs comfortably.
- Substituting it for pants is not acceptable.
- The accessories, such as shoes, purses, and jewelry, should complement your attire.
- Avoid wearing patterned leggings to work.
As the prints are bold, regardless of size and designs, these leggings require neutral pieces to take it down a notch. While putting an ensemble together, remember that less is definitely the best way to go here.
With a Dress
Regardless of season, opt for short to mid-length dresses to pair with the leggings. The fabric should ideally be flattering to your body shape, and not hugging it from all sides. The leggings are tight enough for the bottom-half, without the dress adding it more at the top-half. A clutch purse for a semi-formal event with wedge heels and some adorable jewelry is all you need to complete the look.
A perfect outfit for winters, an oversized sweater with your printed leggings makes this outfit versatile. On the other hand, this mix and match combination can work with an oversized T-shirt. Depending on the primary colors of the leggings, choose a monochromatic top to balance it out. Also, the accessories need to enhance the outfit, and not overpower it.
The basic idea behind wearing a long top is to cover the butt just enough. Of course, you can wear a top that is longer; but that decision will have to be made by you. In the above ensemble, the simplicity of the white top enhances and highlights the vibrancy of the leggings. And in keeping with the elegance of the outfit, the choice of accessories also matters.
Going for a workout? Or perhaps hanging out with friends? How about keeping it all casual with this outfit that works pretty much everywhere you go. Keeping the jewelry and high heels at bay, we ask you to opt for a baseball cap and sneakers instead.
Another example of pairing a white top with printed leggings, this ensemble is a notch (or two) above casual. The subtle, yet impressive, floral print on the leggings makes it impossible to not wear it each time you walk out the door. And, the gold sneakers and earrings do amplify the elegance quotient.
For those who wish to make a statement, without making it too obvious, this ensemble is what you need to focus on. The denim shirt is simply amazing, because it doesn't give the leggings a chance to be too bold for comfort. Plus the accessories―watch, handbag, earrings, and high heels―give it a relaxed look.
Let's kick it up a notch and get your printed leggings noticed. With the addition of the black suit jacket, not only did the outfit become uber-sexy, but it also gives you an opportunity to stand out. Adding the accessories to keep up the glamorousness of the outfit, you will surely be the reason heads turn.
These outfit suggestions are guidelines that will help you put an outfit together with printed leggings. Choose each element wisely, following the advice we gave you above. With a few trials and errors, you will be able to get the right look every time.
