2020 has been the YEAR of leggings. With so much time spent around the house, there has been nothing better than wearing stretchy, comfortable leggings day after day. Even though this athleisure item has the potential to look very casual, there are plenty of chic ways to wear them. Some leggings, like leather or faux-leather styles automatically look dressed up, while others make you do a bit more work. Here are some of our go-to ways to wear leggings this fall and winter.
Black Leggings, White Tank and Oversized Denim Jacket
This look is casual, but can look quite cool in an effortless way. The trick here is to make sure your denim jacket is on the longer side and add stylish accessories like a baseball cap, oversized sunglasses and trendy sneakers.
High-Waisted Leggings and a Cropped Hoodie
For heading to your workout sesh or grabbing a morning coffee at your local cafe, this outfit is an easy go-to. A pair of high waisted leggings with a matching cropped hoodie won’t stand out in a crowd, but you’ll still look good with a defined waistline. Throw on a chain crossbody bag for an added bit of style.
With a Winter Coat
Instead of being the focal point of an outfit, leggings can make a great base for statement pieces. Why not try pairing black leggings with a black tee and a long winter coat? This everyday look can be worn almost anywhere, especially if your coat is a neutral tan or black. You can either rock your favorite sneakers or add some flats to complete the look.
With a Flowy White Blouse
If you’re looking to wear your leggings to the office or a dinner with friends, this is a great styling option. A pretty, flowy white blouse that covers the bum looks perfect with a pair of black leggings and heels or loafers. If you’re wearing this look to work, add a blazer on top to level up the professionalism. For a night on the town, an embellished purse and minimal jewelry will make your outfit really sparkle.
With an Oversized Sweater
As the temperature starts to drop, nothing could be cozier than an oversized knit sweater worn on top of your favorite pair of black leggings. Keep your feet warm as well with some heeled ankle booties or over the knee boots. Add a pom beanie for a bit of wintry fun on colder days!
Legging Outfit Don’ts:
- Don’t wear under a dress — that’s what tights are for.
- In general, stay away from leggings with bold prints and colors. Reserve these for the gym only.
Make sure your leggings are not see-through by doing the squat test.
