Today we will speak about how to wear leggings under the dress. But before we move on I want to ask myself: why do women wear leggings under the dress? There are several worth reasons: first of all, they wear it because sometimes ensemble isn’t long enough. Secondly, some women feel them like being a kind of camouflage while wearing them. Some women want to wear sandals, but they prefer to keep their skin covered. While other ladies are afraid their underwear might be seen.

It’s already more than a trend, as lots of women wear leggings under skirts or dresses, instead of wearing hose or tights. No matter if you are trying to feel a bit warmer, or you simply want to wear shorter dresses, this look is fun, modern and casual. It makes you fashionable and allows you mix and match different separates. I personally find it amazing, when girls combine summer short ensembles with cotton leggings. Thanks to wide range of fabrics, you can choose the best look for yourself.

Here are some tips for length of the dress:

If you are willing to wear short or mid-length dress, then it’s the best choice, as this teaming is very practical. Anyway, leggings will look cool even with maxi dresses, as if you are willing to wear those designs during winter time for an extra warmth, yet keep in mind to wear the same color leggings under your maxis, as if it will be possible to see a different color of leggings, then believe me you will look a bit silly.

Let’s talk about fitting:

Tight leggings under dresses will look best, while loose leggings will look saggy, which however look good under a very loose and flowy dress.

If you love school inspired looks, then I advice to go for a ruffled black dress which can be teamed with the same color bottoms and pair it with studded boots, black leather rucksack and hipster glasses.
