OutFit: Patterned leggings
Fashion should always be fun, and one trend that definitely fits into the “fun” category is patterned leggings.
They can be tricky to pull off, but the secret is to style them properly.
While the weather is still warm, choose a cropped pair and wear them with a short, solid-colored dress. You can remix a summer favorite and start to transition into fall.
The best and most versatile patterned leggings are ankle length. Wear them with an oversized tee and ballet flats now, then pair them with boots and a cardigan or long blazer jacket later in the season.
There are hundreds of patterns, ranging from loud floral designs to subdued herringbones. When in doubt, keep it simple and you will always look effortlessly cool.
