How To Wear Leggings
Do you remember the 1970s? Leggings were a fashion staple! Well, they have made a successful comeback, just about everyone has a couple of pairs; even kids are wearing them now.
What types of leggings?
There are two popular lengths of leggings at the moment, either capri (cropped) or ankle length. If there’s one 70s throwback we don’t want it’s leggings with stirrups or full feet – these are a big no-no for you and your child.
If you’re hoping to dress your kids in leggings all year round, it’s probably best to go with ankle length ones so that you can keep them warm and toasty. Cropped varieties are better if you’re after a little extra covering during the summer – just beware of strange tan lines if you’re out in the sun for too long!
Colours and patterns
Monochromatic and neutral leggings, such as black, grey, white and brown, are a big favourite because they can be paired with loads of different outfits. If you want to spruce them up a little, look for similar colours but with lace trimmings or sparkles.
Although neutral colours are useful, they can get a little boring after a while. If you want your kid to stand out from the crowd, why not try and pull off some patterned leggings.
You can get leggings with all sorts of graphics, from leopard or zebra print to more subtle zig-zag patterns. You don’t have to be a specific body type to pull off patterned leggings, making them a great choice for kids.
If you fancy something in-between bold patterns or graphics and neutral colours, what about some neon coloured leggings? These are a fun way to introduce more colour into your child’s wardrobe.
What to wear them with
Are you put off buying leggings because you don’t know what to pair them with? There’s no need to worry about that as leggings go great with all sorts of things, especially loose clothing such as babydoll tops, over-sized t-shirts or dresses.
In terms of footwear, try going for flats that don’t need socks too; like a pair of stylish ballet shoes or sandals. Alternatively, boots and trainers both go well with leggings in the winter.
Where to get them
You should be able to get your hands on loads of great pairs of leggings at most high street stores, or wherever you usually shop.
