4 Uber-Cool Ways To Style Your Basic Leggings

4 Uber-Cool Ways To Style Your Basic Leggings


The one fashion item most of us cannot get enough of is leggings. C’mon! We’ve all dreamed of alternating those heavy denims with soft stretchy pants that can be worn to work, the gym and everywhere else. Obviously, it’s not difficult to understand why most of us prefer leggings (comfort, women… comfort). Not only are leggings perfect as activewear, if you style it right, you can wear it when you’re on the go. To a date-night, a movie, when on a shopping spree with your gals, anywhere you please. Now you may ask: “How many ways can one possibly wear a single pair?” We’ll answer that for you ladies!

Hello Athleisure

We absolutely love the athleisure trend (get that bomber jacket STAT). It’s obviously a great way to be both comfy and look fabulous. Take a cue from Jr. Hadid and pair your leggings with a sporty crop top. In case you’re looking for something more sleek, add that moto jacket like Kendall. Want to go slightly off-beat with the look? Just work a light snood scarf over a midriff-baring top and your basic athletic leggings. A pair of sneakers is all you need to complete your look and we assure you, you’ve got yourself an ultimate ‘airport look’ everyone’s so obsessed about.

Layer Like A Pro

Yes, we hear you… it’ sweltering hot this summer. But we think your ensemble can survive a lightweight layer. If you’re looking to add that extra oomph, all you’ve got to do is throw a long shrug over a top and your pair of leggings. Go for an all-black-everything look by wearing an embroidered jacket like Deepika Padukone. You will look fab.

Dress Over Leggings

If you’re one to follow street style, you’ll know ‘dress over pants’ is a fad this season. In case that’s too extreme for you, an easy way to follow the trend is by pairing leggings with a dress. Just keep in mind the length of the leggings; and keep the look simple. Sport your leggings with a vintage dress and team it with a pair of stilettos for a date-night. To amp it up a bit, play around with different silhouettes. Most importantly, know what dress suits your body type.

With A Skirt

Leggings are quite a versatile outfit and it can be teamed with any garment as it’s pretty lightweight. Pair your shimmery golden skirt with a pair of leggings to add that layer to your ensemble. A little quirky, yes… but it’s pretty great if you can pull it off. And we’ll repeat this once again — while black is the colour most of us play safe with, we’d like for you to experiment with hues.
WM Tip: Always keep in mind the type of skirt and its length before pairing with leggings.
