Leggings are a versatile piece of anybody’s wardrobe. Leggings are believed by many to be meant to be worn as part of a layered outfit. It’s hard to pull off a fashionable look if you wear leggings as a pair of pants, instead of as a pair of tights under other clothing.
By mixing and matching colors and choosing the right shoes, leggings can be worn in any season and be stylish. Follow these steps to make sure you’re wearing your leggings stylishly.
Put on a short summer or springy dress and pair it with cotton leggings that complement the color of the dress. The dress and leggings shouldn’t be the same color, For example, if the dress has five different colors on it, just pick leggings that match at least one of the colors.

Workout Clothes: You must ensure that, you get the Right Fit for your work out to feel comfortable
You should wear clothes that are loose and comfortable. But if you are running or biking, avoid wide-leg or loose pants that could get tangled up in the pedals or your feet. For activities such as yoga stretchy, fitted fabrics that wick away sweat are a good choice.

Below we list some of the most popular fabrices that is often good for work out..
Bamboo pulp yields a natural fabric that’s light, breathable, and moisture-wicking—it also protects your skin from ultraviolet rays.
In you have to decide between cotton and polyester, go with cotton all the time. One Belgian study found that it gives off less post-workout stench than polyester because synthetic fabrics allow stink-causing bacteria to thrive. Cotton absorbs moisture, potentially making you feel like a dishrag during a hard-charging workout. For yoga, weight training, or other low-sweat activities, go with clothes made from cotton blends
When you’re running, biking, or doing another outdoor activity, you need protection from the elements. No wonder so much outside gear—everything from running shoes to jackets like is made with it. They often are waterproof and windproof yet allows skin to breathe. Water from the outside doesn’t penetrate, cold wind does not pass through, and still perspiration can escape
Famously used to make women’s stockings, the synthetic fabric is soft as silk, mildew resistant, and dries quickly. It’s also breathable and takes sweat from your skin to the fabric’s surface, where it can evaporate. They can stand up to even the sweatiest of workouts
Polyester is the best of the workout fabrics, the one you see on labels most often. Basically plastic cloth, it’s durable, wrinkle-resistant, lightweight, breathable, and non-absorbent, which means that moisture from your skin evaporates instead of being drawn into the material. Polyester also repels UV rays and insulates you even when it’s wet.
Like polyester, polypropylene is made from plastic. But unlike polyester, this synthetic material is totally water-resistant, Even if you’re sweaty after a run and the outside of the shirt is wet, the part rubbing on your body is completely dry. Polypropylene forces moisture to pass through its fibers, expelling it to the fabric’s surface where it can evaporate.
Spandex—also known by the brand name Lycra—puts the stretch in workout wear. The synthetic fabric can expand to nearly 600 percent of its size, offers an unrestricted range of motion, and then snaps back in place. Spandex is also breathable, wicks moisture, and dries quickly. Now you know why it’s a staple in form fitting exercise clothes.
TENCEL Similar to bamboo, TENCEL is made from wood pulp. But TENCEL contains tiny fibrils, or small hairs, that give the fabric sweat-wicking properties and a luxurious texture. Textiles made from TENCEL are softer than silk and cooler than linen. Tencel is also biodegradable, breathable, and resistant to wrinkles.
