Layer Up

Combine some plain-fitting leggings with a top and a waterfall cardigan for a casual layered look. And in order to give it a little edge, put on some punk boots or boots with lace socks to add a touch of texture and fun to your lower body.

Choose the right footwear

The advantage of tights is that they are a transitional garment that can be worn. Paired with a pair of sneakers or ballet shoes, it looks beautiful, casual during the day, with a pair of high heels.

Don't forget the accessories

Just like adding a layer, choose the accessory that complements the style of the leggings you wear. If you're wearing pattern leggings, choose an accessory that complements the color and texture. If you choose ordinary, blocky colors or black tights don't be afraid to be bold and chic.
