What should you not wear with leggings?
Unlike other dresses, we often tend to forget about what to wear and what not to wear with leggings. Make sure leggings are not see-through and always get the right fabric. Leggings that are made of Nylon and Polyester blends usually give a smooth look.
Avoid formal dressings with leggings as it’s better to you the hybrid of leggings(jeggings, treggings) rather than leggings. They are as comfortable as a pair of leggings and don’t look too casual like leggings.
Do not wear tops that are needed to be tucked inside the leggings. This is because tucking in a top will make the top bunch up at the waist and form a messy bulk. When the fabric of your leggings doesn’t give a smooth look, it may show your panty lines through them which all of us want to avoid. So opt for seamless panties underneath the leggings.
Do not wear flats and flip flops with leggings. It’s better to use shoes, sneakers and boots with leggings.
