How to Wear Leggings
As usual, the first bit of advice for wearing leggings is most important. If the thought of wearing them makes you cringe, consider being ‘age appropriate’ in all your fashion choices. The overall tip is to not only wear leggings, but to also use them as a part of an ensemble.
Black leggings are a perfect choice for this, but you can build a wardrobe of different solid colours to mix ‘n’ match. Look for different tops that are long enough to cover your waist. You’ll probably find more options than you expect. Tunics, long silk blouses, ponchos, long sweaters or sweater dresses, and even that really short skirt you never have the courage to wear can all add colour and texture to solid leggings. You can switch things up a little with colourfully-patterned legging with neutral tops.
