The first thing to remember when wearing leggings is the fabric it made from that should be thick enough so you do not see skin peeking through. Don’t treat leggings as pants as they’re not. Wear leggings with longer shirts in mid-thigh length or, at the shortest, right below the hip that cover the rear. Think of shirt dresses, chambray tops, button-down shirts, sweaters, and even fluid tops with longer hemlines that will complement the look without being revealing. Just make sure that the shirt to wear is proportioned with your frame and balance out body fitting leggings with loose and roomy tops. You may accentuate your waist with a belt to give a definite curve so you can keep the people’s eyes directly away from you’re unwanted flaws.

If you’re planning to wear a shorter top, better go for dark colors and sport a longer outerwear with your outfit. Just be sure that your leggings are not too tight around the middle, especially when wearing an outfit that clings to the body. Monochromatic gives you the benefit of elongation while outerwear covers your rear. Long sweaters, jackets, coats, cardigan, and tunic are real cool outfit especially in winter that keeps you warm without compromising your style.

Don’t ever wear a short top without layering a coat or tunic when you are not going to an aerobics class or gym. When you plan to jog around the streets, you may go for matching top and leggings and pair it with comfortable sneakers. But, whenever you feel too revealing on you sporty look, then throw on a cardigan or jacket for cover.

Wearing leggings with a dress is another way to look stylish while maintaining the cover especially when you’re wearing a very short or body fitting dress. Just keep it black and let the prints of your dress do the talking. Clashing prints with a patterned dress and a pair of printed leggings won’t look that fashionable and polish. So, better save your print mixing skills on your tops and bottoms.

To add some interest to your look, go for graphic leggings with colorful patterns and prints. Be careful wearing big prints and horizontal patterns if you’re bottom heavy. The key is to accentuate your best features and conceal those that are less stunning. For a quirky look, go for bright prints or accents of leggings for a lively look. On the other hand, if you wish to evoke more sophistication and class, go for classic prints like stripes, polka dots, and even animal prints to complement your desired style.

If you’re going for a party, you may go for leggings with sequins or embellishments in silver, gold, or high-gloss one that are suitable for fancy events. Just keep in mind that the heavy details could show more bulges or create them even where there are no bulges. And even on a party, go for longer tops that pass down your hips and rear to keep it flattering and decent.
