How to Style Leggings

Tips for wearing leggings any day of the week

Leggings are a wardrobe staple that have become an acceptable fashion option for a pant or jean. And aren’t you glad? With soft, comfortable fabrication and no zippers or buttons that dig, the legging is a girl’s best friend!

While the legging is versatile and easy to pair with a variety of things in your closet, there are a couple of tricks to pulling off a legging look to ensure chic, fashionable style. Different occasions require a certain approach to styling a legging outfit as well. Here are our recommendations:

1. LEGGINGS AT WORK

Do create a head-to-toe monotone look in a dark color for a sleek, business casual look that’s appropriate for the workplace. It’s best to layer a standout blazer, that hits at the hip or below, over the legging for tasteful coverage, with the legging being more the reserved piece to your outfit. A pair of simple pumps also keep the look more serious and business-like.

2. LEGGINGS ON A DATE

Being comfortable is important, especially on a date. You should feel confident and at ease, so leggings are a good option. They’ll show off your shapely silhouette, and when worn with an alluring top, your look is irresistible. The tapered cut of a legging makes them effortless to tuck into your favorite boots as much as if you want to go extra dressy and wear a pair of killer stilettos.

3. LEGGINGS FOR THE WEEKEND

The ideal way to spend the weekend is in an easy, comfy outfit and the legging offers endless choices in putting together a casual look. A loose-fitting top is effortless over leggings and keeps to an overall, carefree feel of the weekend. Whether it’s a poncho-like sweater, long tunic top or high-low button-down shirt, you’ll be ready for your plans in relaxed style.

The new Proper Ponté Pull-On Legging is perfect for creating any of these looks. They’re part of the newest collection from Boston Proper!
