Black Leggings, 5 Ways!
When it comes to comfort, leggings are right up there with oversized sweaters and a pair of great-fitting jeans. And despite the debate that “leggings aren’t pants” when styled strategically, they can perfectly combine comfy, flattering and on-trend. Read on for our highlight of 5 styles of leggings in classic black (and some surprising fabrications) that can lend some inspiration for syling your favorite pairs like a pro.
Pairing lustrous leather or faux leather leggings with a duster coat creates a look that makes a statement steals the show every time. Finish the outfit with a cozy plush sweater and animal print boots for elongating your legs, and further this statement-making look with modern accessories.
You can balance out the subtle sheen of velvet leggings with some wardrobe essentials like an oversized cardigan or a classic button-down, creating a timeless pairing that provides just enough coverage for your derriere. Pull the look together with a complementing structured bag and bold flats.
There are good reasons that cotton leggings are the most popular: they’re breathable, durable and their versatility can’t be beat. Choose a pair with a high waistband for smoothing out your silhouette and style with a bomber jacket over a light hoodie. Finish the look with retro high tops for a relaxed but stylish look.
Although designed for exercising, tech leggings are too good for only wearing at the gym. Create a street-style look by pairing them with a flannel shirt, beanie and lug-sole boots.
Ponte leggings give the look of pants with their faux-fly design, but don’t compromise on comfort. Choose a tunic sweater and add accessories to take the look up a notch, such as over-the-knee boots and a wide brim hat to add a touch of chicness.
