When your bottom half is lit.

Many people are afraid of tight, white leggings. They avoid them entirely or purchase a pair only to leave them gathering dust in the back of the wardrobe. It’s understandable, really—they’re not becoming of everyone. That being said, if you choose the right ones, they can be a serious game-changer.

Hear us out: White leggings can elevate your active outfit. They’re fresh, flattering and surprisingly easy to pull off. Why? They’re like a blank canvas, so almost anything goes. Plus, they’re bright for the summer but reminiscent of snow for the winter so they’re on rotation all year round.

If the prospect of styling white leggings scares you, listen up. Here are three failsafe rules that’ll keep you on trend when your bottom half is lit.

1. Stick to Monochrome

The only thing better than white? More white. Take a page out of Frederika Akander’s book and go white from head to toe. It’s chic, clean and will help you get over your fear. I mean, if you’re nervous about wearing white in the first place, there’s nothing like diving in, head first, right? Just be careful slurping down your green smoothie while you’re looking that fresh.

2. Or go neutral


Stick to a neutral colour palette like pale grey, beige and varying shades of cream or even experiment with soft pastels. It’s less of a statement than an all-white ensemble but is pleasing to the eye.

3. Or colourblock with something bold and bright


In the same vein, if you’re going to go bold why not take it one step further and really make a statement? Choose a fun, vibrant colour to pair with your pristine pins. And if you haven’t heard, black and bland are so last season—rainbow is making a comeback.
