FYI: Remember leggings are neither trousers nor jeans, so do not treat them as pants. These trendy bottoms can give you scoring points, only when you pair them correctly. This versatile pair of bottoms can be combined with skirts, dresses, long shirts/kurtis. Since these are casual and leisure wears, you cannot simply wear them to every occasion.
Pair your floral leggings with tunics
Tunics are certainly a great choice for the pairing. Even long overcoats and shirts are other great options to keep you warm and stylish at the same time. If you are picking tunic/shirt then make sure it’s long enough to cover your derriere and hips, thereby giving you a subtle look.
If you have chosen printed leggings then do overdo it with printed tops, instead go for a simple shirt in plain shade to keep the focus on leggings or else vice versa.
If you are wearing tights then do pair them with ballerina flats, to get an extremely cute look. You can even pick a pair in bright shade to bring in the summer look even then it’s winter. Accessorize your look with a statement bag, watch and simple jewelries to complete your look.
