5 Things That Don't Really Go With Leggings

Given their form-fitting silhouette, it's safe to say leggings come with a set of rules that exceeds those of other (read: more forgiving) articles of clothing. But given how comfortable and cool leggings have the potential of being, we'd say that putting a little extra thought into your legging look is worth the effort.

(Who'd have thought that leggings with a skirt or sexy, suede boots could be so desirable?)
