The buttery-soft goodness on your skin. Those curve-hugging stretchy pants. You and I both know you love them. Below I will give some suggestions on what to wear with leggings. This wardrobe staple is more versatile and age appropriate than most think!
What to Wear with Leggings
Dresses are wonderful, but not everyone likes to show off their legs. Perhaps you work in an overly air-conditioned office and want to cut the chill. Leggings make a great base layer under any length dress and can even provide a splash of color and personality to an outfit! Stick to solids if you are concerned about age appropriateness or professionalism. Leggings are a necessity for me in the colder months since I live up north, and look cute with mid-calf or knee-high boots. The LuLaRoe Carly dress is a perfect example of what to pair with your leggings!
Tunic tops have been very popular lately and for good reason. These flowing, high-low tops have ample rear coverage, making them the perfect top to wear with leggings. Unless you are under the age of 10, no one wants to see your behind. Keep your assets covered in this currently trending top for a youthful and casual look. The LuLaRoe Irma (or Gracie for the little people) is a tunic top with sufficient length and popular 3/4 length sleeves for all ages.
Over-sized tops have been in and out of style for as long as I can remember (think baggy sweaters, men’s tops on ladies). These are an option since they *should* cover your bottom. If not, please opt for another pair of pants. Cardigans and duster sweaters are also great for the same previously mentioned reason (notice a trend yet?). My favorites are the LuLaRoe Sarah cardigan and Joy duster vest for fashionable layers and warmth!
Since I live where it snows half the year, I have to mention leggings as a thermal layer. No more itchy and scratchy long underwear! I love layering my leggings underneath fleece lined jeans for hunting season and snowmobiling adventures. I get the cozy warmth and amazing fit I expect from my LuLaRoe leggings.
In a nutshell, if your clothing covers your bottom, you’re good to go in my book! Of course, you’re free to wear them with any top in the privacy of your own home! Whatever your style, I hope you have a few ideas of what to wear with leggings in your own closet.
