Shiny leggings. A marvellous winter item. Wear them on their own with a long top or baggy knit, or underneath a tunic or dress. They’re practical but also high fashion – and there aren’t too many items you can say that about. We will share our top tips for getting those shiny leggings into your winter wardrobe and then share some of our top picks of great pieces that are available right now – for all budgets. We are certain there is a pair here for everyone – so keep on reading.
Here are our top tips for wearing shiny leggings:
- Think about mixing fabrics. If your leggings are shiny – think about something different on the top half.
- Contrast tight with loose. Your leggings are tight, so think about having a loose top.
- Think chunky! A winter jumper or a knitted dress go brilliantly with shiny leggings
- Chunky boots or heels work brilliantly with a sleek leg.
