How to wear legging?
Duhhh thats simple..leggings are available every where, buy them, put one leg in, put the other leg in and that’s it. But how to wear leggings so that they flatter and flaunt..well..hmmm..thats a whole different question.
Leggings have made their presence felt in every wardrobe in every season, from a lazy girls SOS piece they have now transformed into a fashion essential and have crept into every girls wardrobe in some form or the other. Leggings can look smart and sophisticated when done right but at the same time can look horrendous and tacky when done wrong
Wearing leggings can sometimes be a little tricky, trust me I have made many mistakes when it comes to leggings, looking back those mistakes make me cringe and cry.
Here are a few tips on wearing, styling and pairing leggings in a chic manner.
Unlike denims that suck you in and lift the derriere up, leggings especially the thin ones do just the opposite. They will expose every flaw and every sack of cellulite. So choose the fabric well and choose darker colors to avoid indecent exposure.
The length of the leggings is very important too, those 3/4 the leggings do no one any favours, they cut you into half and make you look short and stout. Choose full length leggings that hit just above the ankle and marvel at how they lengthen and elongate your legs. Also, be ware of leggings that are too long, you don’t want miles of the fabric bunching up at the ankle, remember these are leggings and not churidars. Fold them in or be ruthless and chop them off.
What you pair the leggings with is of equal importance. Make sure whatever you choose to wear on top is long enough to cover to go past the buttocks. No one wants to see those panty lines, camel toes or dimples. The front also should ideally be long enough to cover what needs to be covered. That does not mean you need to pair leggings with boring kurtis or kurtas, the high low hemline is perfect to cover all the bases while looking chic and trendy.
Coming to the outfit, I love everything about it, the black and white graphic leggings take center stage while the mustard yellow top plays the perfect partner. The tribal leggings are something I am wearing a lot lately, mostly casually to run errands, watch movies (kick..seen it twice, hehe) and lounge around. trying to give it a more dressy spin was a bit of a challenge because sometimes you get so used to wearing things a certain way that it becomes difficult to think beyond it. However, I tried and this is what I came up with..slightly edgy more fun and very interesting.
A trend that I totally love and have embraced with open arms and a very open heart is the asymmetrical high low hemline. The top has lace detail at the top and the high low hemline at the bottom, whats not to love.
The outfit would be perfect for a dinner date or a night of clubbing
