Posted on October 16 2018
Cute Legging Outfit Ideas
There are a few staples that every woman should have in their wardrobe; a little black dress, some go-to heels, a pair of comfortable jeans, a cute fitted t-shirt, and a pair of leggings. These items will see you through a lot of different occasions.
Leggings are super comfortable, and are great for relaxing in, and versatile enough that you can wear them to meet friends, to go to the store, or even to work out in.
But do you ever wonder what else to wear with leggings?
Perhaps you don't want to look too casual in trainers, what are your other options? The great thing about leggings is how versatile they are. To a large extent, what you wear with leggings will depend on the look that you want to put forward. Are you aiming for a put-together 'I just stepped out like this' look, or do you want to look a little bit smarter than that? Are you aiming for cute, or sassy?
Leggings can go well with low, comfortable heels, such as the Cecille Sandal . Perfect for all-day wear while keeping you looking your best.
Cute flats can be a great choice, and you have a lot of leeway here. Black flats with black leggings is a natural choice, or you can go for a bit of contrast and match the flats with your top or with your accessories instead. This is a practical, carefree look that will still turn heads. The April Flats are perfect for styling this outfit choice.
If you're always on the move and want an outfit that will be able to keep up with your busy schedule, then black leggings, a cute top and a denim jacket with a tailored high waist can be a great choice. Add a pair of cute pumps, such as the Adriana Pump, and you are good to go.
In the Retro Chic 90s there was a trend to wear leggings under your skirt, and there is a movement that is trying to bring that look back. If it's a look that you love and think that you can pull off, then why not give it a go? You can even combine this with combat boots, such as the Eloisa Boots, for a sassy grunge look, and if you were a child of the 90s then you may remember that look fondly.
Ankle boots are great paired with leggings and a full-length cardigan in the Fall. Pick a pair like the Andy Ankle Boots if you want some height.
While, if you want a pair of ankle boots with a thicker heel for all day comfort go for something like the Shelagh Ankle Boot.
Flatter Your Body Shape
When you're choosing your shoes, think about your body shape. Leggings are quite flattering, since they are a simple garment that draw attention to your leg length. If you want to make your legs look even longer, heels will help with that, and you can pair them with a cropped top or a high waisted jacket to complete that look.
If, in contrast, you want to look shorter, or you want to take the attention off your legs, wear a long cardigan and some ballet pumps or flats.
Consider breaking up your outfit with a chunky belt or something similar too. This will break up your silhouette a little bit, and help to create the illusion that your legs are a little shorter.
Because leggings are so versatile, you can wear them with almost anything. Wear what you love and it's hard to go wrong.
