How to wear leggings and look classy

Here’s my easy tip to look classy in leggings — wear a long top or tunic that covers your tushie. It’s that simple, yet I see so many women wearing a top that’s too short for leggings.

I have a drawer full of leggings because they’re my go-to clothes for working at home and going to my dance classes. I have solid colours and plenty of prints. I don’t do much pattern-mixing when it comes to leggings; I pretty much stick to solid colour tops with patterned leggings and printed tops with solid colour leggings.

Leopard print is a neutral in my opinion, so I love to wear various colours with them. This burnt-orange top dresses leggings up perfectly. Look for tops with pretty details or add accessories like jewellery and scarves to a plain top.

I paired these houndstooth leggings with a green peasant-style blouse.

Covered Perfectly makes fabulous tops in every colour that are long enough to wear with leggings. Shown here– Simple Comfort in beige, turquoise, and black. Made in USA

  2. You look lovely!! I’m like you. I always wear something longer with leggings. I’m way too shy otherwise.

  3. I know Carmen so many women do wear tops that are too short! You want to go up to them and tell them “Here I will show you a better way!” The leopard print and orange go so well together. The peasant top looks lovely with the houndstooth and I like how you accessorised. I like the black top best of the last two you are modelling. But turquoise is good to add color. I hope Autumn is being nice to you with the temps, take care Terri xo.

    My dear Carmen, you are always elegant and beautiful, dressing in leggings or with the most elegant and chic dress, because your elegance is natural, you wear it in your body, in your movement, in your look …
    I love the looks of this post, the animal print leggings, and also the striped ones, and the combinations with the beautiful blouses. Your dancers, your heart hanging on your chest, your necklaces … But, especially, that wonderful smile of yours that turns any look into the most beautiful outfit in the world.
