Matching Your Boots with Leggings and Tights
Whether you’re sporting an ankle boot, a bootie, or a tall pair of over-the-knee boots, matching your boots with leggings or tights in the fall and winter months is a great way to stay warm and accentuate your outfit. While pairing your boots with leggings or tights is a fun, trendy way to show off your style, it can also make your entire ensemble look strange if you do it wrong.
Yes, fashion is meant to be experimental and brave, but when you are out and about during the day or heading to and from work, certain looks can be distracting-- and not in a good way. To make sure something as essential as your leggings don’t clash with your footwear, consider following a few simple tips. These tips can help you to stay stylish and on point, while at the same time maintaining a professional look.
1. Match Similar Shades-- Whether you’re wearing brown, black, or grey boots, choose a legging or tight that is similar in shade to the boot colour. Ideally, go for a shade lighter, such as a dark grey legging if you are wearing a black boot. You can also opt for the same shade legging or tight as your boot, but this may look strange depending on the style and cut of the boot.
2. Choose the Right Length-- Regardless of the colour of leggings or tights you decide to pair with your boots, make sure they are not too short. This is especially important if you are wearing and ankle boot or bootie. Don’t wear a cropped legging with an ankle boot, or your legs and ankles may end up looking wider or disproportioned.
3. Keep it Appropriate-- Reserve nighttime looks for the evening and daytime looks for the mornings and afternoons. Darker colours of leggings and boots can be worn during the day, but make sure they are a bit more casual than your evening wear choices.
Keep these simples tips in mind the next time you head to the closet to match your leggings and winter boots.
