Leggings are not among the first things that people think of when they consider accessorizing for their outfit, and that’s very unfortunate. While leggings do not come off as particularly fancy, they take up a lot of visible real estate in an outfit. A pair of leggings with the right pattern can make or break an outfit, and this is especially true with leggings from a niche brand, such as Simply Southern. These are garments you don’t want to cover up. They should be integrated into your whole look. The following are a few suggestions that can let them augment your whole look or even steal the show. The team here at GirlsRoundHere.com have a few awesome ideas for you that will let you look your best while living in comfort:
The first option is the most easily overlooked these days. While it was chic in the 80s and tried to come back in the 00s, people need a reminder that shorts and leggings are a match made in style heaven. There are several ways to go about pairing Simply Southern leggings and shorts, both achieving very different looks.
One way to do it is to pair darker leggings with lighter shorts. White, off-white, or beige shorts are a very good option for this, as are acid-washed denim. Regardless of the pattern on the leggings, the contrast in color will draw attention away from the legs, accentuating the hips and framing the top. This is a good foundation for any top as well because the paler shorts serve as a divider between the leggings and whatever is worn above the waist. This can even let you get away with clashing patterns on the leggings and top if you’re feeling daring!
The opposite is another option: darker shorts with lighter Simply Southern leggings. This will have the effect of making your legs look longer, which can be paired with heels to make you look taller and slimmer. This works best with black or navy blue shorts, but you can achieve the same effect with anything else.
Matching the pattern on the shorts to the pattern on the leggings is an overlooked trick that can achieve a very dramatic effect. Some of the patterns available on Simply Southern leggings are so iconic that finding the same motifs on a pair of shorts isn’t difficult at all, often letting you choose the same pattern for both, albeit in contrasting colors. This creates a cohesive look that can make a very bold statement, and clearly communicates that you know what you’re doing with your style, and doing it very deliberately.
Finally, a very safe standby is always plain denim jeans with nearly any kind of leggings. Blue denim is such a staple of style that it barely seems like a ‘color’ anymore, meaning you can get away with almost anything. If you have a pair of leggings that just don’t ‘go’ with anything else, you can easily pair them with a pair of basic jean shorts and take it to the bank. An exception is to be made with heavily distressed jean shorts that will show the leggings through them. These will require a little more coordination.
Something people have never taken sufficient advantage of will hopefully catch fire as a look before 2020, and that’s pairing a garment like leggings by Simply Southern with capris. Some consider capris to be summer wear, especially on the coasts where they originated. This doesn’t have to be true at all. Capris and leggings are no less warm than a pair of jeans. In fact, they’re often quite a bit warmer. This turns the leggings into a simple accent rather than a primary component, but this shows an awareness of style and keeps the leggings from becoming overwhelming. Plus, it lets you show off capris in any weather you like, a style that has been grossly underrated.
In a more general sense, leggings go well with anything below the belt. Other than shorts and capris, skirts are coming back in a big way, especially among girls that prefer a more modest look. The longer the skirt, the more elaborate the pattern of your leggings can be while still serving as an accent rather than a primary feature, and the reverse is true if you prefer shorter skirts. If you’re looking for the perfect outfit to go with a pair of hard-to-match shoes, leggings are the perfect garment to serve as a bridge between your shoes and your top.
Leggings should not be overlooked as a strong augmentation to any outfit you put together. Most people forget about anything below the waist, but your legs make for a lot of the surface area you have to work with. Don’t overlook them, especially if you’re putting things together with a fantastic, durable pair of leggings. A resourceful girl doesn’t pass up any options she has at her disposal, and this applies to style the same as anything else!
