 Processed with VSCO with e6 preset

Leggings are the most versatile staple piece you can have in your wardrobe. I have a crazy addiction to my leggings and I think I own more than I can count! I swear by their comfort and how I feel in them. There's certainly a few best ways to wear leggings.

I know of people who look down upon legging wearers as being lazy or looking "inappropriate" or "unprofessional", but I think that leggings have evolved in a way that allows you to wear them almost anywhere - it just depends on what you pair them with!

As far as underwear goes, I avoid panty lines, but also avoid going commando by buying seamless underwear. You can find these legging-friendly panties in most places, including Target and Victoria's Secret. I swear by seamless underwear for avoiding those panty lines - also in tight dresses!

Mesh Illusion Leggings

I love these leggings paired with a basic t-shirt and sneakers! The mesh accents add a fun flair to a basic comfortable outfit. A great look for grocery shopping or grabbing lunch with friends!

Leggings with Shorts

A great look if you like to keep your booty covered! Shorts with flannel also add a cute edgy flair, and would be great for spring, or to extend those shorts into fall!

Leggings with A T-Shirt Dress


I love the simplicity and comfort of this look! This would be perfect to dress up those leggings a bit but maintain a cute casual feel to the outfit.

Leggings with a Cozy Hoodie

I would totally call myself a collector of sweatshirts and hoodies! If you're anything like me, you love feeling comfortable in a pullover! Pair it with leggings and cute sneakers for a sporty, comfortable outfit.

One of my favorite outfits! Perfect for work, a luncheon or out to dinner. I love the boots and a dress pairing to provide some booty and leg coverage.

Leather Jacket & Heeled Boots

Feel fierce and fabulous in these cute high-heeled catwoman boots! Paired with black leggings, they'll make your legs look long. Throw on a sexy leather jacket and you have a great date night look! I would totally wear this out with friends. #SoBadass

High-Waisted Leggings with a Crop Top

Pair your high-waisted leggings with a fun crop top to bring them into the summer style! Stay cool and feel vibrant with a pair of sneakers to pull the look together.

Floral or Printed Leggings

Show your style and stand out! Pair your fun leggings with a basic t-shirt to match. I love how fun a pair of floral leggings can be.

Capri Leggings

Bring that comfort into summer with a pair of cropped leggings. These are so versatile and would look cute with so many things! I love the pair pictured above, paired with ballet flats and a chambray shirt.

Leggings with a Pop of Color

I am LIVING for these burgundy leggings! Another great example of showing off your personal style and bringing some fun color into your everyday look! I love this look paired with the peekaboo shoulder top.
