What to wear with leggings

It's time to give a shout out to the real MVP in everyone's closet: leggings! They're cute for working out, A+ for lounging around the house, and best of all, they can be dressed up and worn as the comfiest base layer known to (wo)man. Winter is such a good time to grab a few pairs of quality leggings and start adding layers for a cute look that stays comfy all day long! Here are some of my personal favorite ways to wear leggings dressed up.

I really love the interest that the asymmetrical hem adds. Tunic sweaters like this one are just right for wearing over leggings and give such a flattering shape. This one is available in camel, navy, and black which are all such great options for winter! Another longer layer that I love pairing with leggings are mini-dresses (like this one from Free People). This is a great way to layer up for warmth while still wearing your favorite pieces! I love doing either flats or boots with a look like that.

I loved creating this casual look by pairing them with a tunic and loafers, but you could dress it up by doing heels and a statement necklace and be ready for a night out. These are actually a coated athletic legging, so they’re way more comfortable than you might think, and they have a control top that makes everything feel all smooth and sucked in. They’re amazing!

This small tote comes in five different colors (I have the cardamom) and I can honestly never pick a favorite…although this nude color is always a win in my book. The inside has a ton of compartments so you can carry a laptop or just keep all of your stuff organized, so it’s a great choice for an everyday bag.

These flat slip-on loafers have such a great profile–the pointy toe combined with the fun pattern makes them a great statement shoe while still being comfy enough to wear all day long. Right now there are only a couple sizes left, so hurry and snag them if they’re available in your size!

I hope you're feeling ready to rock your leggings all season long! The key to a great dressed-up legging look is a longer top and a dressier shoe to keep it from feeling too casual. This is the ultimate way to stay comfortable and cute when you're just not feeling a skinny jean!
