Knit leggings are one of the few pieces in the wardrobe that can go almost anywhere. School, work, parties, outdoor events and exercise wear all make room for versatile hosiery. Leggings are available in ankle length or much shorter lengths, and most of them can be worn the same ways.
When choosing knit leggings, have a good variety of neutral colors in different lengths to make sure all the bases are covered when it's time to pair them with other items to wear. Ankle length tights are great for wearing with boots, and shorter capri pants are ideal for sneakers, sandals and other shoes that fall on or below the ankle. Look for choices by INC International Concepts and more.
Leggings can be worn exactly like stockings under dresses. This is a great way to enjoy short skirts and dresses in the cool evenings for a late night movie, concert or bonfire. Dresses and skirts to pair with long leggings and stockings include shirt dresses, sundresses, wrap dresses and miniskirts. Look for selections of stockings and leggings to rock this look by HUE and others.
Shorter styles, such as capri leggings, can also be worn under dresses, but look great with oversized tops for a funky outfit. Try baggy sweaters, long T-shirts, boyfriend jackets and other long, draped tops with capri leggings. Shoe styles that go best with this look range from booties and high-top tennis shoes to ballet flats or a simple pair of flat sandals. Look for these leggings by Style&Co., and more.
Knit leggings also make great athletic pants. These are great for jogging or going to the gym. Athletic pants can be used for yoga or pilates, too. Pair with athletic tops like T-shirts, racerbacks, halter tops and tank tops. Girls sizes of leggings and athletic pants are offered by Greendog and others.
