In case you have a nice and slim figure, and just as beautiful legs, opting for leggings is a very great way to emphasize your natural and alluring beauty even more.

Thus starting with the monochrome options, the first and the basic type of combination you can try is matching your darker shaded leggings with some light shades for dresses, most preferably tunics, and you’ll have a perfect and universal alternative outfit for cold and warm months, depending on the type of the dress. For brighter tones, you may use them for warm summer months more preferably, thus creating nice and energizing party looks.
Leggings are a perfect component for the casual looks, too. They are suitable for the combos with denim jackets, as well as for those including some sportswear garments. They are a great way out in case you don’t dare to put on too short skirts, even with stockings. They will help you avoid seeming too provocative and having too explicit and catchy looks.
Leggings are a great play pair for creating some color contrasts, too. Choosing some brighter tones like orange for the leggings, and matching them with monochrome options like black can give birth to very eye-catching and successful color combinations, especially when matching all that with suitable accessories. If you are a fan of minimalistic looks, you may try experimenting with identically colored dress plus leggings pair, which will look simple, yet chic. The classic-inspired combination of leggings and a suit is also a nice do.
As for the printed leggings, it will be better to match them with the traditional options like dresses, skirts, etc., while the design and the prints of the former should not differ from that of the latter too evidently, since it will create the risk of overusing the diversity of patterns. On the other hand, you may just match the colors, if the prints are not particular and provide some space for experiments. This is one of the most popular ways of creating the youthful images of many youngsters.
Apart from the universal character of leggings in terms of the garment combos, they are quite versatile with the footwear, too, being suitable for matches with boots, heels, platforms, flats and so on. Slat options look great with casual ensembles more, while with classy heels you can create glam and dressy outfits, choosing the right color and style of leggings and matching them with the appropriate top part.
When dealing with leggings, always keep in mind that these are neither jeggings nor pants, therefore wearing leggings without a tunic or a short skirt topping them will be a huge fashion mistake. It’s also advised to go for oversized, loose tops, and ditch too tight ensembles to match with leggings.
Besides the colors and the prints of the leggings, it’s also important to pay attention to the length, since leggings are available in various lengths, differing from capri to ankle styles. In this respect, mid-calf leggings best of all flatter tall and skinny girls, while petite women would rather stay away from this style, since such leggings tend to make shorter legs look wider. Also if you have a curvier figure, better opt for dark colored monochrome leggings that will slim down and elongate your figure.
