10 Ways to Always Look Good in Leggings

1. For an Everyday Work Outfit

Leggings? To work? Of course, you can! Once you know how to style your leggings, you’ll be wearing them every day of the week.

  • If you have a stricter office dress code:
  • With the right pair of leggings, you can look professional and stylish at the same time.

    We’d recommend wearing leggings that are more subdued in their print and color. Try going for your classic black leggings or mix things up with a leather-look pair. To really corporate up your look, throw on a well-tailored blazer. A longer length blazer will not only look trendy but it will provide you with a little bit more coverage too.

  • If you have a more casual-cool office:
  • Great, you can have lots of fun with your office leggings! A pair of black leggings pair amazingly with a classic, long length white t-shirt, a denim jacket, and sneakers.

    Always make sure that no matter which leggings you’re wearing, to wear a longer length t-shirt or tunic. This will add the right amount of professionalism to your look.

    2. For a Special Work Event

      Your leggings can be worn with a blanket cardigan, a mid-length dress, a flowy kimono, or a simple blazer. As long as the items that you pair with your leggings are slightly formal, you will be right on point!

      Pro tip: spend some time focusing on your shoes. Shoes have the power to take your look from casual to formal in an instant. We’d recommend throwing on some smart ballet pumps, heels or heeled boots.


      3. For a Girls Night Out

      A girls night out is a chance to show your leggings off to the world. We’d recommend opting for your leather look leggings or darker tone leggings to fit into the nighttime mood.

      If you have them, try wearing higher waisted leggings. The high waist adds a touch of trendiness to your look and pairs best with a tucked in t-shirt.

      Make sure to add some statement jewelry and accessories before you head out the door. Your leggings aren’t complete with dazzling earrings and layered necklaces.


      4. For a Cozy Night-In

      Cozy nights in are what leggings were made for! For this look, all you’ll need is your favorite leggings, a comfortable t-shirt, and your fluffy slippers.

      Movies, blankets, and popcorn are essential!

      5. For a Special Date Night

      Let your leggings adapt to your date night needs. A mid-length dress never fails to look good with slouchy heeled boots and a leather jacket.

      If you’re looking for something more alluring, try wearing your black leggings with a satin camisole. This effortless look can be dressed up or down depending on your accessories of choice. Smarten up the look with a glittery clutch and minimal accessories or go all out and add a chunky necklace to your look.

      You’ll be prepared for wherever the night takes you!


      6. For the Gym

      Even though you’re planning on working up a major sweat, it’s important to still look and feel cute, right? Luckily, there are a few ways to make sure you’re still looking fabulous even when you’re going to the gym.

      Wear your favorite active leggings with either a matching crop top or a simple t-shirt. To combat any fashion faux pas, try not to pair your leggings with that oversized t-shirt that you found at the bottom of your closet. A fitted t-shirt is best!

      If you’re going for the cropped look, make sure your crop top and leggings work together. If you have bold printed leggings, we’d suggest going for a monotone crop top and vice versa. If you have the matching set, even better.

      7. For When You’re on the Go with Errands

      Leggings are great for when you’re on the go. They’re comfortable and provide you with just enough stretch to help you rush through your checklist.

      To perfect this look, all you need is a pair of trendy sneakers, a denim jacket and either a tunic or a classic t-shirt. Classic basics work best for when you’re running around town.


      8. For Traveling

      Whether you’re on the road or rocking your airport attire, leggings are a travel must. Just because you’re traveling, doesn’t mean that you can’t look fashionable at the same time!

      To keep comfortable, keep your look simple. Stick to the basics and what makes you feel your best. We love how leggings pair with a statement slogan t-shirt and sneakers. Tie a cardigan and sweater around your waist to give you extra coverage and to keep you warm on your journey.


      9. For Some Summer Fun

      Even though the weather is warming up, that doesn’t mean that you can’t wear your go-to leggings. Leggings are great under your summer dress for extra coverage or for those chilly nights.


      10. For Winter Days

      Winter and leggings perfectly compliment one another. Leggings are comfortable, cozy and look great with your chunky knits! Wear your leggings with mid to knee-high boots for an effortlessly chic look. Add a little length by incorporating your winter coat or knitted tunic.
