Leggings have always been a fashion staple. From the 60’s up to today, this pair of bottoms is still widely used. However, there are still many women who have no idea how to wear their leggings the right way. This is because, although leggings are versatile, it is quite easy to wear them wrong. If you wish to make the most out of your leggings and wear it in the best way possible, here are some of the tips to keep in mind:

Cover up your butt!

First things first, you should understand the fact that leggings are not pants. When it comes to wearing leggings, you should consider it as like a pair of stockings. After all, they are much thinner. That is why the best thing that you should do is to pair it with tunics, longline tops, dresses or basically any top that will cover up your butt. Do this so you can prevent flashing your camel toe unintentionally.

Wear it with layers.

Leggings, and the likes of it, are best paired with lots of layers. That’s why the more tops that you wear, the better you will look. For the best results, we recommend that you wear you leather leggings with a monochrome button up and wear a patterned sweater over it. If you still feel quite cold and you think that you can add  more layers, you can do so by wearing a utility jacket or an oversized coat on top of everything. Finish off your look with high heeled boots.

Buy ponte leggings.

If you want to pull off the ultimate leggings outfit, the best type of leggings that you should invest in is the ponte leggings. Ponte fabric is one of the most forgiving fabrics to women. Its thickness helps to smoothen out and suck in any lumps and bumps so you do not have to worry about any accidental flashing of unwanted body parts.

Pair it with a long chambray top.

There is nothing more classic than the usual loose fitting chambray top and legging combination. For a casual look, pair it with white sneakers. For an edgy look, you can go for a pair of ankle leather boots.

Choose the right waistline.

Aside from the fabric, another thing to consider when buying leggings is the waistline. Most women make the mistake of choosing leggings that have the hipster or low cut style. This may look sexy but if you do not have a flat tummy, this cut will create the unwanted muffin top appearance. To prevent this from happening, choose one with high waistline.

Indeed, leggings is one of the most versatile pair of pants that you can ever wear. However, it is sometimes hard to wear it right. To make sure that you are wearing your leggings right, follow the tips mentioned above. If you have more tips on how to wear leggings, we would love to hear about them!
