How to Rock Leggings All Seasons

Leggings are perhaps one of the most versatile clothing pieces you should keep in your closet. For the most part, leggings are made with stretchy, comfortable fabrics that extend the appeal of wearing these garments. Although mostly associated with warm weather seasons, leggings can be worn year-round with the appropriate clothing combinations and accessories. Let’s take a look at how.

Trending Cuts and Patterns and Fabrics

Leggings come in various patterns, cuts, and fabrics that make them versatile enough for various outfit combinations and occasions. From leopard prints and florals to tie dye and stripes, various patterns offer more options than the standard black leggings that you probably already own plenty of.

Similarly, different fabrics can yield different results, so look into expanding your options with something other than the traditional cotton. Leather leggings for example, immediately elevate an outfit and can be taken from day to night with simple accessory changes. Denim leggings can also be dressed up or down as they imitate the look of jeans but without the restrictive feel. It’s a win-win!  

What Should You Wear with Leggings?

One of the best traits about leggings is their wearability. Capable of being dressed up or down, pairing leggings with the right clothing pieces can take a casual look to a fancy date night outfit. For a more casual look, you can pair leggings with sporty clothes or other casual pieces. This is also where fun prints and patterns can be worn to achieve a more everyday look.

For a more sophisticated look, you can dress up leggings with elegant blouses, dresses, jackets, coats, and even blazers. Depending on the season. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to wear long tops that cover your behind and to avoid shirts that are tight or cropped. Another great way to elevate an outfit is with the right accessories.

How to Accessorize Leggings

Accessories can make or break an outfit. When it comes to wearing leggings considered the following additions.

  • Shoes: These are perhaps the only accessories that have the most dramatic effect on your outfit. To dress down your leggings, opt for tennis shoes or strappy flats sandals. On the other hand, if you want a more elegant look, go for high heels or tall boots.
  • Hats and Scarves: Keep your outfit casual with sunhats or baseball caps. Additionally, other accessories like scarves and jewelry can elevate your outfit for a night out.
  • Purses: Much like shoes, purses can dress up or down an outfit depending on the type. Whereas crossbody bags and backpacks can be casual, leather handbags and clutches give off a more high-end look.

How to Style it at Any Age or Size

Let’s demystify the misconceptions that may be deterring you from wearing leggings. Perhaps you’ve heard that leggings are only suitable for young, thin people and you’ve decided you don’t fit that category. This is in fact, just a myth. Leggings are one of the only garments that complement every body type and that can be worn at any age. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to stock up on more leggings!
