With cool styles like leather and suede, leggings aren’t solely reserved for the gym anymore. In fact, we have the athleisure trend to thank for bringing these comfy bottoms back to all areas of our lives, even at work. And if you can wear leggings to the office, why not for the holidays?
They are warmer than tights, are less constricting than jeans, and can be styled just like any pair of pants. Because of their versatility, stars like Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid are constantly rocking their leggings, making them look stylish enough for the streets. We've decoded a few of the model-approved outfits that center on the piece so that you too can re-create the look.
For a night in with your girlfriends, take a cue from Selena Gomez. Throw on your comfiest pair of leggings and stick to a monochrome look by styling it with an oversize hoodie and gold hoops.
If you're looking for an easy way to dress up your leggings, style them with a pair of over-the-knee slouchy boots. Make your outfit feel even more put-together by layering a turtleneck under a chic mini dress.
When your layering game is as good as Olivia's, no one will even pass judgment on your leggings. The trick here is to build an outfit using key pieces like a button-down, sweater, coat, and cute accessory: the neck scarf.
If you're going to wear a sweater and leggings, make the combo interesting by layering a button-down dress underneath. The dress will cover all the areas you don't want exposed.
A pair of suede leggings isn't a piece you come across every day, which is why it's perfect to break out for the holidays. If you're not afraid to show off a hint of midriff, style with a crop top and bomber jacket all the It models have come to love.
A sleek pair of leather leggings plus a holiday sweater is the cutest way to spread some cheer. Take a page from Lauren and arrive to your dinner parties in heels. Now's the time to say, "Oh, I just threw this together quickly. It was easy."
Get yourself a fancy party top like Cara's sheer lace blouse to pair with your high-waisted leggings. Throw on some strappy pumps and you've basically got yourself the most comfortable dinner outfit in minutes.
