The rainy, dreary weather we’ve been having, has got me living in leggings. A cold-weather go to, it does not get more comfortable than a pair of great fitting leggings, paired up with a warm and cozy long sweater, tall boots, rain boots or Uggs! My favorites? I have five, all for different reasons, rounded up for you in, Leggings Are Not Pants! The 5 Pairs You Need to Know (HERE). The best part about leggings? Any woman can look stylish and chic in leggings, if she knows what to wear them with!
On this rainy weekend day, I paired my black Lysse ponte leggings with a long Vince sweater, layered over a Michael Stars fitted tunic t-shirt – both in charcoal. By keeping the layer piece in a similar color to the sweater, I created a seamless line, so as to not chop myself up (you’ll look taller!). The seamless line continues, with black rainboots. I let my utility jacket, be the statement piece of the day.
Little Details: Pulling it All Together
What Legging, What Top?
Thinner, my favorite leggings, for layering under a dress, skirt, shirtdress, or lounging:
When you want something more substantial, to pair with tunics or long sweaters:
This is my personal favorite. Bonus: the center seam elongates the leg!
The Legging Companions
There are so many great options available right now, if you are looking to pick up a new legging companion or two.
A Long Sweater
My favorite wintertime piece!
NOTE: I love the first turtleneck Bobeau sweater (above), and I just noticed it is currently low stock at Zappos. I did a search and Bobeau.com has it in stock in both colors and on sale for $59.99! Here is the link if you are interested (HERE)
Style Tip: wear a shirtdress now over leggings, and bare in the spring/summer months
