Like us, you probably have a pair of leggings for every day of the week. They’re a serious wardrobe staple, who wouldn’t want a bunch to choose from?! But contrary to popular belief, leggings don’t always have to be a stay-at-home or workout option.
Leggings can be upstyled in chic and trendy ways, for outfits you can take out to brunch, day drinks and even casual dinners. You also have the elevated jeggings — a hybrid design for when you want the appearance of jeans but the comfort of leggings!
Here’s our roundup for upstyling leggings and jeggings this season:
1. The Longline Coat
On a cooler day, grab your favoruite leggings, a simple tank or crop top and layer your look with a longline coat. This can be a teddy coat, a wool-blend coat, a faux fur coat or structural trench coat. Layering your look gives it an upstyled finish, just accessorise with chunky trainers or boots and a stylish cross body bag!
2. Biker-Chic Vibes
Give your outfit a touch of edge by styling your leggings or jeggings with a graphic tee, faux leather jacket and chunky combat boots. This look might be casual, but it’s super trendy and street-style savvy. Round off your killer weekend attire with a pair of sleek skinny glasses.
3. Sports Luxe
Sports luxe is all the rage right about now and leggings offer the perfect foundation to style this look on! Team them with a sports crop, bomber jacket and platform trainers to channel your very own Sporty Spice aesthetic. A belt bag will elevate this look further.
4. The Crisp Shirt
Keep it smart-casual and style your leggings or jeggings with a crisp white shirt. This outfit is so simple yet so sleek, it will never fail you! Team with patent pumps and a cute baguette bag to take this look out to after work drinks. Alternatively, pare it back with slides and reflective sunglasses for laidback Sunday style.
Your gym outfit can last all day long with a few trendy touches! Combine your sports crop and leggings with a stylish bomber jacket, fresh white trainers and sweet mini bag. This outfit manifests the cool kind of athleisure vibes we love to see!
