11 Cute Outfits That Feature Comfy Leggings
You already know that leggings are cute and comfortable. Chances are you rock them as much as possible, because why wouldn’t you? They’re flattering and easy to style. They go with everything and the sleek and minimal design makes them ready and available to pair with a number of different tops, shoes, and occasions.
But even if leggings are your go-to pants for active and casual wear, it never hurts to get some additional inspiration and ideas to mix up your looks. While leggings have become an everyday favorite for women everywhere over the last decade, they still continue to increase in popularity through the pandemic.
Perhaps you’ve become so used to throwing on leggings that your outfits have begun to feel the same day after day. There’s nothing wrong with leggings every day; you can definitely do it without feeling or looking like you’re in a rut.
That’s why you’re here reading this article: for some fresh outfit ideas that will help you find new pairings for your favorite leggings.
It’s common to find leggings in black. They’re sleek and slim and are a solid start to a head-to-toe blacked-out outfit.
Pair your black leggings with a black long sleeve and you have a smooth and minimalistic silhouette that lets your natural form do the talking.
If you want to add layers to your all-black look, wear leggings with a black shirt and a versatile black jacket. This jacket has a cropped cut and has an understated tech element about it that compliments the minimal color palette.
You can’t go wrong with the combination of comfortable leggings and a hoodie. It may actually be the most comfortable outfit possible. A cropped hoodie adds a definitive edge of fashion and style to the look.
Wear your leggings with a long overcoat on colder days. Or, perhaps when you’re heading on a trip and don’t have room in your suitcase for that trench you simply must bring with you.
This athleisure combination is a trendy mix of modern athletic and classic utilitarian styles. Use it as a starting point for several different outfits.
If the weather is colder, you can wear a sweatshirt or hoodie underneath your coat. Complete this outfit with boots.
A cool spring interpretation of the same look is to wear sneakers and something lighter underneath your coat. Think tank top, crop top, or sports bra. This is a sporty casual look. Sunglasses will serve as the cherry on top.
Take advantage of the versatility that comes with leggings by using them to replace a pair of tights. On a colder day, you can still wear a skirt by putting it on over a pair of leggings.
Wear a sweater and boots with this combo for a cozy and put-together look that’s perfect for gloomy weather. Choose a fitted sweater. An oversized or flowy sweater will take away from the shape of your skirt, whereas a fitted sweater will work together with a skirt to create a flattering silhouette.
Black and white is a classic color combination that can’t be replaced. You can use this to your advantage in creating a classy outfit based on leggings.
Start with a pair of black leggings and stick to a rule of only wearing black and white to create your outfit (off-white or ivory works great too).
A white button down shirt is a natural pairing. You could add a black blazer and heels to this look to create a girl boss vibe.
Another option is to choose a black and white patterned top. Black and white polka dots, for example, will do the trick and get retro points as well. Wear this with black or nude flats.
Rock leggings with a tank top and a flannel for a cute and comfortable outfit that can be worn more than one way. Wearing a flannel over a tank top will feel loose and cozy, and also show variety between the two different necklines.
You can also wear the flannel around your waist. A flannel around your waist with a tank top will create a silhouette that vaguely replicates a dress. Wear this with a pair of sneakers for a street look, combat boots for a grunge vibe, or knee-high boots for a country look.
Leggings paired with a denim jacket is an outfit that will never fail you or let you down. It’s a casual look that mixes the smooth, soft, stretchy material of the leggings with a more structured and textured feel of the denim jacket. The result is a balanced look that is cozy, casual, and in vogue.
It’s also an outfit that you can easily add a lot of personal style to. The look can take on different personalities depending on the shoes and shirt you wear with it.
A sporty outfit with a twist would be to wear leggings, a tank top, a denim jacket, and sneakers.
Wear the same outfit but with a band tee and combat boots and it takes on an indie rock flavor.
Bring together a modern athleisure look with the cozy, knitted, adorable look that comes with a flowy cardigan. Choosing a fitted top will create a balance and contrast with the loose and flowing cardigan. Think tank top, workout top, t-shirt, sports bra, etc.
Go with sneakers to match the sporty look you have underneath the cardigan. You could easily swap sneakers for a pair of slides and keep the same athletic look but with a more laid-back, lounge-ready appearance.
This is another outfit that creates a balanced look by pairing fitted leggings with a loose and long top. A tunic and great pair of leggings look great and feel amazing every time you wear them. Add a touch of detail to the outfit with a long necklace that follows the flow of your tunic.
Wear this outfit with shoes that compliment the style of your tunic and the occasion you're dressing for. You can wear this look with sneakers, booties, heels, or sandals.
Wearing leggings is an easy choice to make because of their comfort, style, and versatility. In fact, it sometimes can feel like it’s too easy of a choice. You may find yourself dressing in leggings more often than not—a lot of women do.
But that doesn’t mean that you need to lack versatility in your outfits. Don’t hesitate to try on your leggings with items in your closet that you don’t normally think to pair with leggings. You may be surprised to find just how versatile they are and how many comfortable outfits you can put together with them.
