A good way to wear the solid red leggings is to wear them with an outfit that already looks without any leggings. It is pretty difficult to explain with just words, so I will use the above picture to show you what I mean. Imaging yourself wearing only the grey sweater dress with the brown suede ankle boots. The outfit would already look good. So in this case, the red leggings are there only to add a little bit of color and change the overall style a little bit. It is usually this kind of situations where the red leggings can really blend in with the outfit.
