dresses & skirts;
`dresses and skirts that fall at or above your knees work well with leggings

`avoid wearing a skin-tight shirt with leggings
petite women should be careful when choosing a shirt to wear over leggings: make sure it is proportioned for shorter torso so that it doesn't look like you're wearing a dress over leggings instead of a shirt
`keep in mind that a monochromatic ensemble will elongate your look
`likewise, tall women need to make sure their shirts are long enough to cover their rear

`choose from three can't-lose shoes to pair with your leggings: flats, plain pumps or boots
`ballerina flats are always a good choice
`give your look a rocker-chic edge by wearing booties with ankle-length leggings
`pair cropped leggings (those that fall mid-calf) with platform espadrilles that lace up around your ankle

`for example, if your outfit has touches of brown (including your belt or shoes), wear brown leggings to complement that aspect
`wearing a leggings in a contrasting color can look either fabulous or a bit scary
`if you're willing to take the risk, go for it
`black leggings paired with bright-colored tops will draw the attention to your hair and makeup, away from your legs
`the key is to accentuate your best features and diminish those that are less stunning
