Some dos and don’t when wearing leggings that will go a long way to enhance your wear:

Well fitting: Leggings should be well fitting to look flattering and sexy.

Don't wear leggings that are too tight or too loose. Your leggings should be tight enough to  comfortably cover your legs.  They should not be too tight not too loose.  Leggings should cover your legs comfortably, not too tight and not too loose.If the leggings are too tight, then will tend to show dimples and pimples on your feet.  If the leggings are too loose then they fold into small pouches at the knees and look bad. Both are unflattering.

Don’t treat leggings like pants. While you can look well dressed wearing pants and a top, you can look miserably under dressed and revealing too much, if you don’t have the other layers on over your leggings.  Pair your leggings with a nice top or a long kurta.  And for all those youngsters, pair leggings with a cute dress or short denim skirt.

Take care to wear attractive footwear as leggings reveal a lot of your feet.
