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!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
