Leggings are versatile enough that they can be both dressed down or up, depending on what you’re wearing them with. The key is knowing how to wear them correctly for any occasion!
This blog post will show you how to do everything from pairing leggings with flats and a simple top for casual days at home or work, dressing them up by pairing it with heels and an elegant blazer for date night, and even using it as pants.
We’ll start off by showing you how to wear leggings as pants. It’s actually very easy, and the primary reason that most people buy them! Read more: How to dress pants to go to the office
When wearing leggings as pants, it’s important that your top covers you up well enough. A crop top might work with high waisted jeans but won’t look good with leggings. Try wearing a long, flowy top or a loose tank with your leggings.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to wear socks. This is to keep the overbearing butt look from occurring. If you insist on going without them, make sure that your pants go up high enough and cover you down there while being form fitting at the same time.
You can pair leggings with anything from a t-shirt and sneakers to a blouse and heels, but you need to keep in mind that your top should cover you well enough so that it doesn’t look like pants. Here are outfit ideas to pair leggings with:
You can’t get any more simple than this. A loose, flowy top goes well with just about anything, and the belt around the waist accentuates your figure. Comfortable flats or sandals will complete this look.
If you want to go casual, but still put together, then wear a blazer over your leggings. Your top can either be solid color or striped for an extra bit of detail. Comfortable shoes are a must here, and depending on how dressed up you want to look, you can either do sneakers or ankle boots.
If your goal is comfort, then this outfit will certainly meet the mark. Sneakers are always in when it comes to casual outfits, so slip them on with leggings for a laid back look. If you want to dress this outfit up a bit, switch out the sneakers for flats and add a cardigan for some extra warmth.
A loose, cotton top is great for casual days, and because it’s so thin and flowy, you can wear it even when it’s hot as long as you pair it with a light cardigan or cotton jacket. Sandals are always great with any outfit, and make this one look even more laid back.
We couldn’t resist adding more outfits for casual days at home or work! These two outfits are also super comfy thanks to the soft fabric of the top and leggings. The addition of sandals gives it a casual look, while sneakers are slightly more dressed up.
If you’re looking for something to wear on date night or another evening event, then stick with wearing leggings but dress them up by pairing them with heels! A great outfit to wear from day to night, simply add a blazer for an event and you’re ready to go!
Another reason why leggings are the perfect type of pants is because they look great with heels. The heels make your legs look longer while elongating your torso at the same time. There’s nothing to not love about this outfit.
This outfit is perfect for those who want to wear flat shoes but don’t feel like wearing jeans or slacks. It’s professional enough for work, but comfortable too. A looser fit top will help keep you from feeling suffocated by the blazer, and you can even add a scarf to dress it up!
Leggings as pants might not be acceptable in some work environments, but wearing them with a skirt is totally OK. You can either go for a monochrome look, or use color blocking to stand out! Match your top with the color of your shoes for a flattering look.
You can dress down this outfit by wearing sneakers, or you can switch them out for ankle boots instead. A sweater is always great because it will keep you warm, but make sure that it isn’t too loose around your waist. You don’t want to end up looking like you’re wearing a tent!
Whether you’re looking for more outfit ideas, or the perfect pair of pants, leggings are always your best option. You can wear them with everything from casual outfits to professional ones.
