How To Wear Leggings This Fall
- Leggings with dresses
This comfy alternative to jeans can be chic enough to be worn under dresses. Now, speaking of style, then there is nothing new about it: casual dress with leggings is for casual events and dressy dress with leggings is for cocktail parties, office hours and formal events. If you are about to wear neutral hue leggings, then the dress can be colored in any hue you like. Simply wear a max of one color in your outfit and keep the rest of your outfit neutral colored. If you want to try a printed dress, then your leggings should match the dominant color of print or they should be neutral colored.
- Leggings under skirts
I recommend matching your leggings with the color of the top either the jacket. This is the most clever way to wear leggings this Fall. By the way, this cold season I see sheer skirts everywhere around on the streets. This trend is pretty massive right now. I personally love teaming sheer skirts with leggings, all I do is trying to match the color of a skirt with the color of leggings. Basically, all I need to do is to take a pair of opaque black leggings and wear them underneath the skirt and top them off with a cool jacket, blazer or bomber. If you are not into matching both colors, then go for a pink skirt and wear black leggings underneath. Just be sure the colors look good together.
- Leggings with tunics
Tunic and leggings combo is one of the best casual outfit formulas you can find for the Autumn season. As you all know, a tunic is something between a top and a dress, that’s why it ideally covers all areas you want to hide from people’s eyes. The right length to show off the great shape. They come in tight and relaxed shapes. So, yes, leggings and tunic is the ultimate combination you can create for Fall season days. As I have already mentioned, there are tight and relaxed and loose-fit tunics. If you are about to create layered outfits, then be sure to try a shirt dress tunic which can ideally match knitwear and sweater-tunic that can be layered over your favorite tops. I personally love oversized knitwear tunics.
- Leggings and long tops
It’s the same as wearing leggings with tunics. Sure, you will need to create a layered outfit, otherwise, you risk to show too much of your butt. Keep things layered and there will be no problem with creating a nice Fall outfit. Think of a long top layered under sweater top or trench coat.
- Leggings with boots
This is a superior and winning combination. Try to pair your leggings with knee-high boots. Choose the ones that can cover your calves to help in combat the leg-thickening that leggings sometimes have. For a casual style, I recommend wearing leggings with tall, combat, flat, lace-up, slouchy or riding boots. The classic and mid-calf boots are for dressier outfits.
- Leggings with sneakers
Yes, you can wear sneakers with leggings. No, this is not the only look you should wear for going out to the gym. Find out more about wearing leggings outside the gym. The athleisure look is what you definitely should try out with sneakers and leggings. The easiest way to create a fabulous athleisure look is to combine darker leggings with some bright pair of kicks. For instance, pleather leggings look cool with any casual runners. I recommend to start from monochrome looks, this is an easiest and the coolest combo you might like to try. If you have moto leggings, then go for an edgy style and get yourself stylish neutral colored kicks.
- Leggings with mesh
This is a cool choice, but they work only for athleisure and casual events. Try them on with a denim jacket and hoodie layered under. They are great for teaming with high and low kicks, for wearing with long sporty tunics and oversized sweaters.
- Leather leggings
Another of my favorite must-try bottoms. They are ideal for creating street style Autumn outfits. Try leather leggings with heels, and boots. I would recommend to pair them with casual and dressy clothes. Start from basics, like sweater dresses and cold weather frocks, then you can start to experiment with long hoodies, pullovers, coats, trench-coats, denim and leather jackets.
