No one can deny how comfortable and simple black leggings are and once temperatures start to drop these cozy cotton pairs find their way to the front of our wardrobes. As effortless and comfy as they may be, they can also skew sloppy when styled with too-casual counterparts. To elevate the beloved staple, we’ve created four distinct looks that are anything but boring, but also surprisingly easy to pull off. Paired with of-the-moment accessories, transitional pieces and cool layering combos, see how to style leggings like a fashion girl ahead.
How To Upgrade Basic Leggings
Try this cool layering trick by donning a button-down under a slip dress to don with leggings. This covers the bum, while making the frock more appropriate for daytime. Finish off with sleek stacked heel ankle boots and cat-eye sunnies.
Adapt leggings for work with a high-neck long-line knit that lends coverage. Spruce it up with ball hoop earrings, backless embroidered loafers and a roomy tote.
Ditch the LBD and opt for an alternative evening outfit with a rich velvety jewel-toned blazer to instantly upgrade the simple staple. Add a contrasting vibe of tomboy cool via a slouchy tee and slip-on sneakers.
Leggings work as a great base for statement pieces to create a fashion-forward ensemble. An oversize chambray turtleneck gives the look unexpected texture and silhouette, while a fringed embroidered shoulder bag, suede glove shoes and wide-brim fedora are of-the-moment extras that give momentum.
