Color is an essential fashion factor. Wearing just the right color enhances and complements your natural features. Me? I’m a fan of bold, true colors. My skin and hair have cool blue undertones, so this royal blue flowing blouse over white leggings really is the perfect way for me to make a color statement!
And here I go again with the white leggings! I guess they are just my theme piece for September, although I think this is the last time you will see them for a while. But, they really do allow this gorgeous royal blue blouse to be the star of the show!
The cascading fluted sleeves provide just the right feminine touch to this blouse’s simple design. Also, the length of the blouse provides nice coverage. It’s essential to consider the length and drape of your blouse when wearing leggings. You don’t want the leggings or what’s under them to steal the spotlight!
How to wear white leggings – Pair white leggings with a longer blouse that hits below your backside. Choose a blouse that is flowing and is proportionately wider at the base. This will make your legs look thinner in comparison.
Because this blouse makes such a powerful statement on its own, I chose to pair it with just a few jewelry pieces and kept everything else at a minimal. I am wearing a few Erimish bracelets in both corresponding and contrasting colors and then a stunning Kendra Scott pendant necklace in cobalt blue. I chose to pair this outfit with Tommy Hilfiger sandals that are accented with a brushed gold color.
