One of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet is a pair of leggings. No longer just for yoga or working out, you can now throw on a pair whatever the occasion. Lauded for being super cozy and flattering, leggings not only keep your stems warm, but literally go with anything. Pair it with a crisp blazer, loose blouse and knee-high boots for the office or under a dress with platforms for a night out on the town. For those looking to add some visual drama, reach for a printed pair, like Aztec or galaxy, or hit the glam rocker note with a shiny leather or sequin look.
What kind of leggings should I get?
Black is the universal go-to color, but there are now more options than ever for everyone. Printed leggings, such as Aztec, galaxy and floral, have been super popular and look great paired with other trendy items like bomber jackets, crop tops and cut-out blouses. Opt for a more versatile pair such as leather or sequin.
How do I style printed or patterned leggings?
Oh, the possibilities! Printed and patterned pieces of clothing might seem overwhelming, but don’t fret. Dresses pair super well with leggings. Opt for a skater dress, since the curved bottom hem is flattering to all shapes and sizes. Pair it with a fitted or loose blouse and when it gets chilly, top off your shoulders with a classic denim jacket or bomber. Throw on a pair of your favorite flats or heels and you are good to go! Also, don’t be afraid to mix prints. A pair of floral leggings look cute with a striped top and colorful flats or heels.
How do I wear leggings to the office?
Depending on where you work, you can absolutely sport leggings! To keep it business casual, style your single-colored leggings with a structured blazer and long blouse or mid-length dress with a skinny belt. Pair it with ankle or knee-high boots and you’ll be the best dressed employee!
