Leggings are becoming one of the most popular wardrobe items a person can own. They are comfortable and versatile enough to wear when lounging at home, working out at the gym, or kicking it with friends.
Certain types of leggings can even be worn to complete formal or professional looks.
Once leggings were available in just a few solid colors, but now that they are getting more popular, they are coming out in a wide variety of colors and prints.
Wearing fun prints and bright colors can be great for brightening up a dull day, but if you are not used to wearing prints, you may wonder how to style them.
FIERCEPULSE makes a wide variety of solid colors and prints that you can mix and match to make styling easy. Here are a few helpful hints and ideas to ensure you always look your best.
HOW TO STYLE BASICS WITH PRINTS
You may be looking to make a basic outfit more exciting or you may be looking to match a print without going overboard. Either way, here are some helpful hints that will help you achieve your goal.
MATCH PRINTS WITH SOLIDS
If you put too many prints together, your outfit may be too loud. Put solids together and you may just look boring. The ultimate solution is to match a solid with a print. This way you will get a perfect balance and the best of both worlds.
THINK ABOUT THE COLORS
As with any outfit, you will want to make sure the colors you are wearing match.
Take a look at the pattern in the print you are wearing. What colors are in the print? Complete the outfit with pieces that feature a basic solid that matches one of those colors.
So, for instance, if you are wearing workout leggings with a print that’s blue, brown and green, you can match it with a solid top that features any of these colors.
But don’t feel like you always have to be matchy-matchy. Sometimes taking a risk can pay off big time. For instance, a bright red top will look great with black and white print leggings. Or think of adding a purple tone to a gray mix.
When adding accessories like shoes, a purse, hair ties and jewelry, think of bringing out the colors you are wearing to make your look even more exciting.
So, for instance, if you are wearing the blue, brown and green leggings we spoke about earlier and choose to match them with a blue shirt, wear a green pair of shoes and a brown bag to create a high fashion look.
If you are wearing a black and white print and add interest with a red shirt, you can throw on some black and white accessories to let the red pop or wear other vibrant colors to make your colorful leggings outfit even more exciting.
