6 Tips If You Are New To Leggings
For today’s installment of Fashion Friday, I am asking the question Are You New to Leggings? If so, here are 6 tips to try!
I know that leggings are not a new trend, not by a long shot!
In fact, leggings have been around for a really long time! However, with clothing boutiques like abby+anna’s boutique, leggings are making a comeback in a major way! But this trend is no longer just the basic black legging. The new leggings are designed in a variety of colored prints. And no longer are leggings thin and sometimes see-through, the new leggings are made with thick, buttery-soft, and durable material.
These new style of leggings can be seen all over the internet!
From Facebook, to Pinterest, to Instagram, and beyond, we are seeing celebrities and everyday women sporting this must-have wardrobe staple! Maybe you’ve seen the look and are curious what all the fuss is about, but are on the fence about trying it out. Maybe you are ready to try this trend, but not sure where to start. Well, that is why I wanted to write this blog post today.
If this is you, these tips will help!
Try a basic legging –
If you’re not into the crazy or bright prints, start off with a basic, solid colored legging. It could be black, if you want to play it really safe, but it doesn’t have to be. There are lots of solid colored leggings to choose from!

Try a black & white print-
If you want to do a printed legging, but still aren’t quite sure about those wild prints, try a subtle black & white print. You can still have the printed legging look, and remain in your comfort zone.
Wear with a longer top, tunic, or dress –
Yes, we see celebrities and young girls on Pinterest and Instagram rocking their leggings with crop tops and t-shirts that stop at their waists, and yes, they look amazing! But, if you’re new to leggings, or if you don’t want to show off all of your “assets”, then I would suggest sticking with a top that covers your front and your back sides! I personally love the look of leggings under tunics and dresses! You can try the tunics and dresses from a+a or from online boutiques like SheIn!
Try a shirt extender –
Say you have a favorite top that you would love to wear with your new leggings, but it’s just a tad too short…try a shirt extender! These cute extenders add a little length, and style, to the tops that you already own, that may just not be long enough for your leggings! The tops extenders are lightweight, so they are extremely easy to layer!
Wear shoes that you love –
The thing about leggings is that they are pretty versatile! You can dress them up or down, depending on the shoes that you wear. You can wear sneakers for a super casual look. You can wear a mule or ballet flat for an everyday look. Or you can even dress it up for date night, or the office, with heels, tall boots or booties! You really can’t go wrong in the shoe department when you’re wearing leggings! So, wear the shoes that you love, that make you feel the most like, well, YOU. That way, you’ll feel just as natural wearing leggings as you do wearing jeans!
Don’t forget to accessorize –
I think the thing that sometimes separates a good legging outfit from looking like you’re going to the gym, are the accessories you wear! You don’t have to get too “iced” up, but a necklace and earring set, or some cute bracelets or statement earrings can really make all of the difference when you’re wearing leggings!
