What to Wear with Leggings

by Kate Franco on August 10, 2014 · 0 comments

what to wear with leggingsShocker, leggings are a controversial topic. See: Women over 30 should not wear leggings; Principal instructs female students to ‘cover their butts’; and tights are not pants for more info. I DO think that with a few quick tips, leggings can be styled appropriately. Even still, likely not acceptable for a work environment, but a cool off duty look. It’s all about the styling!

Quick tips on leggings:


  1. Cover your butt, please. No, really. I don’t think anything more needs to be said on this topic.
  2. Tights DO NOT equal leggings. Make sure that your leggings are thick and opaque and not the slightest bit see-through. See above post on distinguishing tights from leggings.
  3. Go Sporty. Adding sporty elements creates a cohesive look.
  4. Mix in unexpected elements. This one is probably my favorite. Add in metallics, layers of jewelry, or a bold red lip and you’re good to go!

What to wear with leggings

1. Leggings + High Tops/Sneakers + Flowy Tank/Graphic Tee

2. Leggings + Metallic Sandals + Short Sleeve Sweatshirt + Jacket

3. Leggings + Flats/Booties + Layers (including an open cardigan)
