As much as we love getting into our pajamas before bed, there’s something special about spending the day in our leggings. Bonus points if they’re actually styled to look like we actually tried! If you’re aiming to spend more time in your stretchy pants, keep scrolling for six ways to style leggings for work, play and travel. (These are all pulled from Pinterest, so follow us while you’re checking them out!)
1. Layer up!
This is one of our favorite fits for travel — just pick a neutral sweater, long coat and your most comfortable sneakers.
2. Pair your patterns with neutrals.
Whether you’re heading to the office or off to class, this buttoned-up look can work for both.
3. A blazer can be your best friend!
If your office is a little dressier, grab your best blazer. Depending on your office dress code, it may need to be a little longer, but it’s still a great way to stay comfortable and still look professional.
4. Keep it neutral.
Our favorite ways to style leggings applies to non-black/leather styles, too! No matter the color, just keep the rest of your outfit classic and neutral. You really can’t go wrong.
5. Embrace shacket season.
We can’t get enough of our flannel shackets. They work with a wide range of denim silhouettes, and they also look amazing with our leggings. Plus, if you’re wearing them with black leggings, you can pick just about any color/pattern.
6. Long Trenchcoat
If you’re looking for chic ways to style leggings, this one is IT. Keep your shoes and accessories minimal and top it all off with a tailored trench.
Shopping for an accessory that goes with everything? Hint: it’s a statement bag! Shop our favorite styles of the moment — they all would look great with your leggings.
