How to Wear Leggings

Leggings are one of the most comfortable items you can wear and, of course, one of the most touchy. Some people love leggings, and others think that leggings shouldn’t be worn at all. I lie with the people who love leggings. Personally, leggings are all I wear in the fall and winter when I’m at home, and I do occasionally wear leggings out.

If you want to wear leggings but don’t know what to wear with leggings, or you’re not sure how to wear leggings, make sure that you read this entire post!

Leggings have been around for centuries; they have been made of various materials and used for different purposes. They have been adapted, updated, and transformed into a closet staple and are still holding strong. They may change material and colors from season to season, but you can wear classic leggings every year.

What to Wear with Leggings

Now that you know what you should and should not do when wearing leggings, let’s review a couple of stylish ways you could wear leggings.

Wear leggings with a button down

In this outfit, I wore black leggings with a cute black and white polka-dot button-down shirt. I accentuated the loose top at the waist with a black belt so to not lose my figure. The shirt is long enough to cover my behind, so it keeps this look classy. I added a pair of dark burgundy heels and a mini crossbody bag with a gold chain. I kept my accessories to a minimum with a classic pearl necklace, one gold bracelet, and earrings.

Pairing your leggings with a button down is one of the simplest ways to pull them off. Make sure that you wear a slightly loose shirt like I did in this outfit. Wear a darker color of leggings (black is best) and contrast them with a white blouse. In this case, I wore a white button down with a cute black polka-dot print. If you are going to wear a patterned blouse, make sure that it’s a subtle and classic pattern that matches the outfit.

Wear Leggings with an oversized cardigan and boots

Pairing leggings with an oversized cardigan and high boots is classic for the fall. This outfit is stylish, cozy, comfortable and my favorite way to wear leggings in the colder months.

Wear leggings with a chambray shirt and boyfriend tee

Leggings are my preferred bottoms for long road trips. They are the most comfortable and stylish option for times when you’re going to be sitting for hours. When wearing leggings for a road trip remember to layer and wear comfortable shoes, like flats.

Wear leggings with a blazer

Lastly, pair leggings with a stylish blazer. In this outfit, I kept a black-and-white theme. I paired black leggings with a white blazer and large white scarf. There was no nonsense with this outfit; I kept it classy.

I like classic styles, but am minimal on trends or overly “crazy” pieces. I want the outfits that I wear now still to be stylish four years from now. This is one of the main reasons I usually only wear black leggings.

I hope that this post answered a few of your questions about leggings!

How to get the right fit

To measure your clothing size follow these instructions (use the image below to help):

  1. OUTER LEG

Measure from the bottom of your ankle to your waist area

2. INSEAM

Measure from your crotch to the bottom of your leg. Be aware that the inseam measurements are based on a regular inseam.

3. HIP

Stand with feet together and measure around the fullest point of the hip, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.

4. WAIST

Measure around the narrowest part of the waist, keeping the tape horizontally.

Choose the right size

That's easier said than done. Because, what do you do if you are in between two sizes?

If in doubt, we recommend going a size  up in leggings - if you are between sizes, this is the best way to ensure a great fit!

Leggings fit:If the measurement for your hip and waist are different, select your leggings size using your hip measurement.
