1) Black leggings

A wide range of colors are available for women's leggings , (more than other pants). There are even those with floral patterns , stripes, or animal prints (leopards, zebra, python...), checks and all other extravagant styles . However, it is important to choose the right color according to your destination, and especially according to the morphology of your body . If you are a little plump, a little too thin, or if you have some flaws on the lower part of your body , it is not advisable to wear colored or patterned leggings . This will accentuate your lower parts , and it will not be great especially for going to work.

Thus, it is always safe to opt for black. For what ? Black is a classic, understated color that won't turn unwanted eyes. Whatever imperfections your body has, whether you're proud of it or not, it's not very flashy when it comes to black. Especially for leggings that are already quite tight, there is obviously no need to highlight your body more. Even if you are very satisfied with the latter.

Let's not talk about your outfits at home (because that's none of your business), but lately leggings are worn everywhere , like at work, at university, on formal and informal dates, etc. — we'll get to that a little further down — so be careful what color you choose for these occasions. We suggested black because of its discretion, but there are also midnight blue, dark brown and dark gray which are just as stylish and discreet. It is up to you to make your choice.

2) How to wear the leggings at work?

Initially, leggings are part of sportswear , and most women stick to formal or semi-formal business wear when it comes to work. But wearing skirts and pants all the time, after all, can be boring and uncomfortable. Also, a little respite would be welcome. At work, where you spend your time sitting or moving around, leggings pants would help you spend your days better. That being said, here are some precautions to consider.

Start to tell them apart. If you're thinking of wearing leggings to work , make sure they're different from the ones you use at home or at the gym. This would help you to be more attentive to those that you will keep for work, whether on the quality, or on the maintenance of these.

  • Quality ? Yes, because leggings with fine fabrics (very transparent) are certainly not to be selected for work. This will cause inconvenience, whether for you or for your colleagues. Or, if your job is to receive customers or people outside the company. So, it is better to choose thicker, less visible leggings , those that give more or less the desired "pants" effect. Above all, keep in mind that the poor quality of the leggings could embarrass you in public.
  • Interview ? Of course, pay more attention to the leggings you select for work. As they are made of very stretchy materials , the elastic that holds them may wear out if subjected to too many washing cycles. So, it would be better not to wear the same leggings at home and at work. So you won't have to wash them frequently. You should also consider having several pairs if you've really decided to include leggings in your wardrobe for work.

3) What top to wear with leggings?

Your top outfit should cover your butt . Indeed, being sexy is good! But preserving oneself at the same time is better. When you choose to put on leggings to go out , you are aware that they generally cling to your body like a second skin , without making it uncomfortable. But they can show flaws around the thigh and hip, especially if you have some roundness there. So choose your top wisely ! It should cover part of the hip and a few inches of the thighs, there is no need for extra long tops , just keep the length right.

Your top should be a little less sticky.

Yes, you surely have a dream body, or not. Either way, avoid clingy tops . Combining leggings with this type of top will give the impression that you are exposing your body to the public. A tank top that embraces every little scale of your body will be welcome in the gym , but not out of it. So be careful! If we associate ourselves with the previous criteria, we already have an image in mind. For example, black leather leggings (with a lining to make them thicker and less sticky), combined with a white tunic (semi-long top) in the form of an airy blouse . It's classic, but stylish at the same time! Sexy and presentable at the same time. These are the effects that should show through when you are seen.

Choose your shoes according to the quality of your leggings and the effect you want to bring out. If you're more rock'n'roll, a pair of boots is best suited, along with maybe some leather leggings (and a handbag). If you like the business woman effect, or if you prefer to bring out your princess side (depending on the choice of top and leggings), you will surely opt for high-heeled shoes . Pointed heels are more classy, ​​then there are square heels or wedges which are just as chic and presentable . If you're a sporty woman and your daily activities often reflect this side of you, get some sneakers . Finally, if you are rather comfortable with simple shoes , and your day and your occupations do not require any outfit, go with sandals (especially during the summer), flat shoes such as ballet flats or why not tap shoes if you feel that is the most appropriate.

A final aspect that is often underestimated is choosing the length of your leggings . If it's not long enough (to the ankle), it looks like it's cutting off your legs ! So choose it long enough to show off the shoes you're wearing.

Don't forget, you should choose the shoes according to the outfit and the destinations of the day. Without giving up your personal style . If you are more into streetwear or sportswear , then short leggings with a pair of flashy sneakers will not be in bad taste.
