How to Wear Patterned Leggings

Patterned leggings can look super cool if you know how to wear them. It’s a tricky trend to pull off but if boldly patterned leggings are paired with some casual, slouchy clothing and accessories, it’s a great way to make a fashion statement! There’s no need to pick an extremely loud or bright pair, even one with a subtle graphic print can make an equally stylish ensemble. You don’t have to be a certain height, shape or body type to wear patterned leggings, but it’s important that you wear them with confidence so make sure you choose a pair that you feel totally comfortable wearing. If you feel self-conscious at the thought of actually wearing them outside, then find a pair that suits you better. Fashion should be fun, not make you feel uncomfortable!

How to Style It

The best and most versatile length for your leggings is ankle length. Mid-calf can is generally not very flattering and can’t easily be worn with boots in the colder weather. The best tops to wear patterned leggings with are oversized t-shirts, slouchy sweaters, tops and tunics. The shortest top or tunic should hit your mid-thigh area. Also, it’s best if your top isn’t sheer so the pattern of the leggings can’t show through - so keep your top half opaque! Don’t be afraid to layer your clothes with leggings - wear an oversized long cozy cardigan with a tunic or even a shorter off the shoulder sweater over a long tank or tshirt! Pair with a pair of cool sneakers, a slouchy pair of boots or ballet flats. If you want to wear a high heel, a chunky one is best. You don’t want to lose the casual, comfortable appeal of wearing leggings in the first place by pairing it with something too dressy. Don’t mix too many colors and patterns with your leggings. Remember, you patterned leggings are already making a statement so there’s no need to add anything else too trendy or distracting to your outfit. When in doubt, keep it simple and you’re sure to look effortlessly cool! Take a look at Kidzworld’s gallery of funky leggings and tips on what to wear it with!


Patterned and Colored Tights

A fun way to experiment with pattern on your legs is with patterned or brightly colored tights if you don’t want to wear graphic print leggings. Even swapping your normal black tights with some black tights with a diamond pattern can change up your look! Colored tights don’t have to be super bright - even a deep burgundy, navy, smoky grey, forest green or wine colored pair are a great way to add a bit of personality to your winter wardrobe!

Cell phones , Laptops , Tab and many more technological things are useful & very good to us. But equally it's addicting. I think your mom understand that. And how old are you? What will you do with a cellphone now? SMS and etc yeas? Parents should give  these things after 17. Before that , you are too young for cellphones.
