CHICAGO Because they are flattering to a variety of shapes, leggings might well be one of the brightest fashion stars this spring.
"Anyone can wear leggings, even prints," says Shawny Burns, fashion director for Bloomingdale's. "It's all a matter of proportion."
If you have a great figure, you can wear a cropped top or short dresses, however, if you're figure is larger than a size 9 or 10, better stick with oversized sweaters and blouses or blazers that hit mid-thigh.
For heavier legs, dark colors help minimize as does a diagonal print. Floral designs are fine for larger legs if they are kept in smaller, more subtle patterns.
