An article by Who What Wear discusses which pieces of clothing to avoid wearing with leggings in 2023 and what to wear instead.
The article emphasizes that leggings are a comfortable and versatile clothing item that can be dressed up or down depending on what they are paired with.
The author notes that while leggings have become a fashion staple, there are some pieces of clothing that may not pair well with them.
Celebrities have set stylish examples of how to pull off leggings, and it all depends on what you wear them with.
There are some pieces to avoid wearing with leggings to achieve the most forward look in 2023.
The author suggests avoiding bodysuits, as they may cause visible panty lines. Instead, they recommend wearing tank tops, which are a more fail-safe combination.
Similarly, going-out tops may not be the best choice for leggings as they tend to be fancier and less casual. The author suggests opting for an oversize button-down shirt instead.
While high heels can work with leggings, the author suggests pairing leggings with flats and sportier styles, such as sneakers or loafers. The author notes that boots are also a good option for leggings and can be worn with crew socks for a cool-girl look.
The author recommends avoiding wearing dresses or skirts over leggings, as this look was popular in the ’80s and may not be as modern today. Instead, they suggest wearing tunic sweaters or sweatshirts for coverage.
The author notes that gym bags may not be the best accessory for leggings, as they can make the outfit look too casual. Instead, they suggest carrying a handbag to make leggings streetwear appropriate.
Leggings look cool with something looser on top, like an oversize blazer or bomber jacket. Avoid fitted blazers.
Finally, the author recommends avoiding piled-on jewelry with leggings, as it can clash with the sporty look of the leggings. Instead, they suggest wearing a few simple pieces of jewelry for a cohesive look.
