Hate Leggings? Try These Comfy-Chic Outfits Instead

Share

This may be a dangerous theory, but we feel it’s safe to assume not all women are huge proponents of leggings. At the gym? Absolutely. On the couch? You bet. On the street? … Not for everyone. But sporty attire is more relevant than ever, and this is where the athletic-inspired ensemble comes in—no stretch pants required. We’re talking relaxed outfits that nod to the tennis court or the track but remain polished. Wear them to work, brunch or drinks without feeling underdressed or sacrificing sartorial savvy. In celebration of the US Open kicking off today in NYC, here are three comfy-chic looks to try now.
