Do you want to accentuate your legs but are hesitant to show skin? Then your best bet is to throw on a pair of leggings. Leggings have definitely evolved from being “throwaway” pieces into closet staples and even fashionable pieces. Back in the day, they used to be pretty humdrum – being offered in two colorways (black and gray) with no design. Now, they come in various fabrics, prints, patterns, and fits. There is no shortage of options that you can find that fit your personal style and leave you feeling comfortable and secure along the way.
Not to mention, leggings are undoubtedly the most functional bottoms you can have in your wardrobe because they transition from gym to errand running and even casual outfits. There are also premium, luxe options for nighttime and dressier affairs.
The options below are more on the sporty side. I’d wear these to the gym, casually, or both. However, if you are a risk-taker then I suggest wearing them in the evening and dressing them up with heels, sandals, pumps, or boots.
If you like feeling cool, boyish yet sexy, then try out a pair of camo leggings. Styling camo leggings isn’t hard at all. Match them up with a plain white top. That presents a stylish and youthful look that is ideal for casual hangouts. To spice things up, then add accessories like a baseball cap or even dangle earrings. Mixing and matching unexpected pieces is an aesthetic I really enjoy these days.
It’s no secret that mesh leggings are a hot trend because they’re super cute, comfortable, breathable and add interesting yet elements!
Midi leggings should be your go-to style if you prefer to show off your shoes or sandals. Because they hit right above your ankles, you can feel confident that both your pants and shoes are getting their shine!
High-waisted leggings are the most well-known, particularly to those who work out. They not only elongate your legs but also provide a safe, comfortable fit. In other words, they can flatten areas of your figure you may want to downplay (I’ve definitely used them for this purpose). Also, high-waisted leggings go with everything. In fact, they look great with sports bras and crop tops, so you can go for a more playful look on top without feeling too exposed.
Hands down, these are my faves!! I love bright, eccentric colors so it’s no surprise that I adore neon leggings. Neon has a popping effect that really catches the eye. They make a statement, grab attention, and – simply put – are unique. Not to mention they’re fun, bright, and playful. I recommend pairing them with white, soft colors, or even more prints if you really want to spice things up.
