5 Common Mistakes People Make When Wearing Tights
Most of the time, when we think of leggings, we associate them with the gym or some kind of sport. But, what if we told you that this piece has 1,001 uses when it comes to putting together a look? After all, they can be worn in many ways, such as with heels or with a biker-style jacket, among many other options.
We have put together a list of 5 common mistakes that can be made when wearing this outfit. In addition, we will share several tips on how to show off your style.
Opt for high-waisted leggings.
Low-rise leggings can make certain parts of your body stand out more than you’d like. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however if you want to avoid it, you can choose a pair that is worn at the waist.
This design will not only hide parts of your hips, but also help you look slimmer and more comfortable to wear, especially if you are doing Pilates or yoga.
In addition, it can be combined with any type of top or blouse, which is a great plus.
Stay away from flashy prints.
Prints with large prints and very bright colors tend to steal all the attention from the rest of the look. Not only that, but as a general rule of thumb, remember that the larger the print, the more volume it adds to the body.
So, if your goal is to try to lose a few inches off your waist and distract attention from other parts of your body, it’s best to wear leggings in solid, dark colors.
Give preference to long leggings.
Some people prefer to wear short socks. While some designs are quite cute and comfortable, most of them tend to flatter the shape of the legs, making them appear thicker than they actually are.
That is why it is recommended that if you want to buy a pair of leggings you choose a longer model. Not only will it give your extremities a slimmer look, but it will also make you look taller.
Of course, this depends on your body type and how you would like to look.
Don’t forget to choose colors that match.
A well-known advice that is often forgotten and that applies to any type of look is also good to keep in mind when wearing leggings: choose colors that match and go with your skin and hair color.
As we just said, this also includes the color of your leggings. When wearing them, choose a blouse in a similar or darker tone to make yourself even more elegant.
Don’t think of them as exclusively sportswear.
A big mistake that many people make is to use leggings only as a sports piece, because few know that they combine with any type of look, as long as you know how to combine them correctly.
A favorite pair of leggings can be worn for a variety of occasions (as we’ve seen with many celebrities), from meetings to casual gatherings. At the end of the day, what’s amazing about leggings is how versatile and comfortable they are.
Just swap out your old sneakers for heels (or boots), throw on a jacket, and voila! You will look amazing.
