Day or night?
“You can use either day or night, in various materials,” teaches Helena.

The look superjusto
“Avoid, as well as very daring necklines, always balanced on top,” he says. She gives suggestions for the top. “Looser Shirts, always covering his butt, with shirts, t-shirts, jackets long maxicardigã type or even a little shorter (woollen fabrics suit), blazers kind boyfriend (I think it is superelegante) or even acinturados (with a” podrinha “t-shirt inside is nice), and trench-coat, coats …

“Way that I like and leggings with long shirt and jacket (leather biker style looks great) shorter on top making a counterpoint in proportion,” says Helena.

The fatties
“Should always avoid the leggings opaque and clear, should use in darker colors, preferably black good quality, that will not be transparent. A good tip are these thicker fabric like denim, are more grossinhas and modeled on the body”, teaches.

The shorties
“Avoid those that end up in the middle of the calf, to elongate the silhouette is good to use the longer, almost to the ankle.”

And the shoes?
“An interesting trick to stretch is to use the color of the shoe leggings. I find it more elegant to use with sneakers, heels closed, heavier boots (motorcycles, Doc Martens, abotinados), ankle boots, loafers, oxfords shoes, stylish high-top sneakers disappearing skin and making the tights effect.”
“Also goes well with shoes that cover the legging bar.”
