Timid about tights? Leery about leggings? Consider these tips:
Proportion is crucial. Balance a slimmer leg silhouette with a top, dress or skirt with more volume.
Remember this mantra: Simple and monochromatic.
The tights-and-cocktail dress combo will draw attention to your legs, so keep up with your weight training.
Leggings are slightly less sheer than footless tights, and should be worn with more casual looks.
Black is the best color for tights and leggings, followed by earth tones.
If you have chunky ankles, big thighs or large calves, leggings that stop at the thinnest part of your leg are most flattering.
