When it comes to leggings, we all know what the original intention of leggings was made for — which is gym wear, and is a whole lot easier to pull off than chic wear. But for a die-hard aficionado for all things comfortable and stretchy, the challenge is an embraced one. While we don’t encourage them for all occasions, a few styling tricks can elevate the everyday staple to a more polished look. Here, we show you three amazingly chic outfits you can rock for a day on the run or a casual night out — with the luxury of comfort being your little secret without sacrificing any style at all.
Calling all Gigi Hadids, your road to street-style stardom isn’t by coincidence. There’s something to mixing athleisure wear with a big warm coat and some metallic kicks and accessories with hardware that adds the just the right amount of punctuation that keeps landing you on one of the most pinned street-style looks. The shimmer paneled leggings from Beyond Yoga lends just enough shine to make this an easy transition out of an Equinox session with your trainer, to brunch with your girls.
If you’re gonna rock a chunky sweater, we suggest to go all the way. We’re channeling fashion street style star Chiara Ferragni, in one of her most iconic looks to date from coveted knitwear designer Delpozo. One of the best ways to style up leggings is to bring an unexpected retro and quirky flare into the mix. Pair bold colors of red hues, with red boots, a swipe of some YSL Rouge, and of course the raddest pair of Andy Wolfe sunnies to be the cherry on top of this sweet stylish sundae.
If your style icon spirit animal is more of a Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sort of vibe, then you’ve got sex-kitten written all over your personal style. Leggings are perfect for that jet-setter life — disguising that comfortable fit that you oh-so-love into a sleek silhouette to show off those barre-made gams you work so hard for. Make sure to dress it up and toughen it out with a good distressed sweater, an embellished leather jacket, and a pair of heels to take you from a 16 hour flight to business meeting chic at the Ivy in no time.
