LET’S CHAT LEGGINGS:
Are they pants are are they no? The short answer? Yes, they can be pants. The thing is that leggings can frumpy and we don’t want that, so I’m here to help you create simple but cute outfits with some of my favorite leggings (aka pants).
Leggings are no longer just a workout pant or a pair of stretch pants to pair with a tunic (please don’t do that). Here are a few of my favorite styles:
The Active Legging: 7/8 length, high waist, and just enough compression. I love these for a more sporty look and to actually work out in. You can find me in these while taking one of my favorite spin classes.
The Comfort Legging: Cozy, light, buttery soft, and a touch of compression. Lounge wear, but make it fashion.
The Staple Legging: This is the fun one, the pair you want to wear to dinner or even to work. Just enough shine, just enough compression, just dressy enough to slip on with boots this Fall.
The Biker Short: Such a perfect piece for mom life and this transitional season before it gets too cold– pair them with a sweatshirt and sneakers.

IT’S ALL ABOUT ELEVATED CASUAL:
Casual but not frumpy. I’m all about elevating your everyday and the best way to do that is to add some structure + detail to your leggings outfits. A hat, a jacket, some sparkle, fashion sneakers, a bold lip, or a great bag. Find ways to add a pop of trend or personality to your outfit. This keeps you comfy and casual yet put together.
WAYS TO WEAR LEGGINGS:
Break it down to a basic outfit formula:
Basic Bottom (legging)
This helps you think outside of the box and try new pieces like a blazer or bodysuit instead of tunic. Swap workout sneakers for mules or even booties. Elevate your basics and look instantly put together.
active legging + cropped tee + sneakers + wrap bracelets
Treat leggings like you would any other basic bottom. Reach outside of the boyfriend tee option (although I do like this one).
Mix textures like a leather or suede jacket, a sweater, ponte blazer, or snakeskin mules. This will instantly elevate your look and bring more interest to your outfit.
Mix style types. Think pearl headband with a leather jacket. A little bit of prep, a little bit of edge.
Stack on the jewels. Don’t be afraid to wear chunky necklaces with your tee and sneakers or wrap bracelets with your active looks. Have fun, it’s not that serious.
