How to wear leggings

Day or night, summer or winter, leggings are a girl's best friend

Leggings are an essential basic in every girl’s wardrobe. They can be worn by women of any age and size – it just comes down to layering over them to flatter your figure. Here are some helpful tips on how to wear your leggings all year around for both workwear and casual weekend style.

  • If your ankles are your strong point, try an Audrey Hepburn look with leggings which are slightly shorter and expose the ankle. These are best worn with ballet flats or kitten heels
  • Fuller-figured women look fantastic in leggings, worn with long floaty dresses that sit on, or below the knee, creating a long line down the body. Try tunics or dresses with an uneven hem – this will ensure you don’t cut the body off at any one point
  • oany women keep their legs covered up over the summer months as they aren’t happy with their skin tone. Try a light mesh to give coverage without getting too hot
  • For a casual weekend look, wear your leggings with some cute, colourful trainers
