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:
Hue Ultra WW Legging (HERE), in regular and plus size
When you want something more substantial, to pair with tunics or long sweaters:
Lysse Control Top Legging (HERE)
Lysse Seamed Ponte Knit Control Top Legging, (HERE)
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
Wear Leggings Under a Dress or Skirt
A Tunic Top

Thank you and thanks for stopping by! xx
Awe, thank you so much Laurie! xx
I love leggings and a tunic or long sweater. You look great! I’ll have to check out Lysse leggings…
Hi Anderea! Thank you! When the weather is wet, I hate anything that sticks to me so I live in leggings! The Lysse are pretty great, almost work as a pant. I like that they stay up and keep their shape. I wash them in cold and hang dry, they look fantastic, now in their 2nd year. Sometimes I find them on sale at Amazon or Nordstrom will occasionally mark them down. Have a great week! xx
This outfit is perfect for rainy weather. I would wear it in fall walking on the beach.
Thank you Nicole! I have to be honest, I struggle to stay chic in the cold, but you manage to do it so effortlessly! Well Done! XX
