Hello there 🙂
Leggings can be a difficult piece of clothing. But since they are so comfortable and cool that they have the potential to be, we would say it pays to think a little bit more about your legging outfit, and that includes considering what Not to wear with leggings.
Considering the fact that leggings became an integral part of the wardrobe a few years ago, we have become accustomed to the fact that celebrities wear only celebrities instead of pants. Aside from a few bold exceptions, celebrities are always setting stylish examples of how to strip leggings, and it all depends on what you wear them for. However, to get the best possible look, you should still skip some parts when you put on the sports clip.
Are you ready to become a master of legging styling? Read on to find out which seven things you should not wear with leggings and which ones you should wear instead.
Wear instead: tee + jacket tied around the waist
Bodysuits and leggings are not a good combination due to the VPL. Instead, we love a short sweater or T-shirt, paired with a jacket or sweater tied around the waist for a little extra protection.
Wear instead: Cool outerwear
While it is true that leggings can be dressed up or down, they are essentially a leisure item, making a fancy top a less than ideal choice. Instead opt for an interesting outerwear such as a windbreaker, a denim jacket or a leather jacket.
Wear instead: sneakers, slippers or flat boots
Leggings are best for flat shoes as the heels may look a bit old-fashioned. But that does not mean you can only combine them with sneakers and flip-flops. Moccasins, ballerinas and flat ankle boots are all fail-safe options.
Wear instead: an oversized pullover or a sweatshirt
Dresses and skirts over leggings were the hot topic in the '80s, and even in the mid-2000s you will not see much of them in 2018. Plus size pullovers or sweatshirts are a much nicer look.
Wear instead: A purse
This may sound a bit strange, but there's a reason why celebrities never carry a gym bag when they go to the gym – a real handbag may be the easiest way to make leggings suitable for streetwear.
Wear instead: A jacket over it
To be honest, many celebrities combine their leggings with crop tops and even sports bras. But in most cases, they put on a longer jacket over The crop top gives the look a touch of modesty. If this is still outside your comfort zone, skip the canopy and wear the jacket over a tank with zippers or buttons.
Wear instead: Subtle (or no) jewelry
Lots of jewelry and athletic leggings do not go well together, but if you feel naked without any jewelry, stay with subtle, delicate pieces.
