Hey everyone!

Leggings are a huge trend nowadays. No matter where you go, you are bound to run into someone sporting a pair of leggings. I know I wear my fair share of them, like here and here and here. Okay, enough with the "here". You get my drift.

You can incorporate them in so many ways into your outfit and wardrobe. The only thing I gotta warn you is to just make sure you actually wear them in a way that doesn't make you look like you aren't wearing pants! That's a huge drawback to these comfy articles of clothing. Today I have a guest post sharing a few ways to dress up your favorite leggings!

How to Dress Up Your Leggings

There are a number of ways you can dress up your leggings and the following are a few of the best tips to help you do so.

Add leather

A leather jacket makes anything look edgier. The next time you want to pair a jacket with your leggings go for a leather jacket — maybe a cropped colored piece or a classic black jacket. Put on a simple T shirt underneath and you will have created an understated cool look.

Off the shoulder

When you want to channel pretty vibes with your leggings, pair them with dresses that are a bit shorter like midi skirts type of dresses with a looser contrast with the tight leggings. You can go wild with the material of your choice — denim, floral patterns or linen will all help you to create a pretty look.

Put on a blouse

Bringing the comfort of a pair of leggings on a work day is something most of us want. The best way to do this is by finding leggings in a faux leather material so that it looks more elegant. Pair the leggings with a classic blouse with a bow or a button up shirt for a look that is professional and seriously comfortable.

Go for asymmetry

For a sleek day look, try wearing your leggings with an asymmetric piece — like a vest or a shirt in a rich material like silk or lace to elevate your day look from simple to elegant.

Mesh it up

For a daring look, try pairing your leggings with a sheer mesh top. Find the perfect bralette to wear underneath that complements the color of the mesh top for an effortlessly sexy look.

Go for lingerie

Work the lingerie trend into your love for leggings by wearing the latter with a great camisole piece. Find one that is not too tight and go for a piece that is a bit long so that you can channel soft, bedroom vibes without looking vulgar or looking half dressed.

Find the right shoes

The shoes you wear with your leggings will determine the tone of your whole outfit. Classic white sneakers go well with leggings but if you want to dress up your leggings then pretty lace up ballet pumps or a classic heel will help you take your look from casual to more elegant.
