Guest Post: 3 Ways to Wear Leggings

Belle from One Awesome Momma is one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve ever met! I’m so glad she was willing to write a Fashion Friday post for me, because anyone who knows me in real life knows that I’m probably the least fashionable person on the planet. It’s why you don’t see me post a lot of pictures of me wearing anything……. Anyway, huge thank you to Belle for sharing this guest post which I love, because it has my staple leggings as the star!!

3 Ways To Wear Leggings And Style It The Right Way

Leggings are probably one of my favorite pieces of clothing. They are so much more comfortable than wearing jeans, not to mention that they look great with just about anything as long as you know how to style them. Who doesn’t love comfortable and versatile pieces of clothing, right? Also, did you know that you can get away with not getting any maternity jeans during your pregnancy just by wearing leggings? That’s what I did with both of my pregnancies and saved a lot of money!

Leggings are also so much fun to wear because they come in different colors and different patterns which helps you get creative with your looks. I know some people who have a bunch of black leggings in their closet so they can switch them up and their leggings won’t be worn out easily. While that’s a great idea, I’d rather have my closet filled with different colors and different patterns of leggings (I love colors and patterns). Today, I am going to show you how to wear your leggings and style it the right away while also incorporating those fun, colorful, and printed pairs you may own or have your eyes on.

With A Blazer

Out of all my leggings, my faux leather leggings are my favorite because they’re so edgy while still giving me the comfort I want; and you can wear them in different ways. You can either dress them down or dress them up like what I did here. Leggings would be a great alternative to office pants if you’re into skinny pants like I am.

With A Tunic or Long Sweater

Leggings are made for tunics. These are tops that are too long to be called a blouse or too short to even be considered dresses. Pairing your leggings with tunics is a perfect way for you to cover up your butt, if you’re not comfortable with them being highlighted when wearing a pair. What I really love about this style is that you can do this in any season. Wear a light tunic during the warmer months or wear a tunic sweater during the colder months. Another tip: If your tunic sweater is a little bit loose, you can even wear a shirt underneath to create a different look.

With A Leather Jacket

Another piece of clothing that I really love are leather jackets. Just like leather leggings, they transform any outfit into an edgy one; and it goes really great with everything. Plus, leather jackets are very timeless. This is a more casual yet stylish look that you can do on those days when you’re running errands or just don’t feel like dressing up but still want to look good. I just love how I can wear a simple tee underneath my leather jacket and still look trendy.

    I love my leggings! Although I’m guilty of only owning black ones…
    I really do need to try more colours and patterns for sure.
    I have a huge tummy due to having diastasis recti, so I find leggings just about the only thing that makes me feel comfortable in myself. Thank goodness they exist!

      Black is the best anyway! Although I have started to branch out more, but you can never go wrong with comfy black leggings and a long sweater!

    Such fun ideas! Um, does a nursing tank top count? No? Ok, I need to find a leather jacket. Because my leggings outfits are nothing as adorable as this!

    I love leggings. I have read a lot of posts about how to wear them etc. But usually, I am just like.. ehhh.. I will wear them as I want because I don’t have any colors from these posts. I love this post because I have a red leather jacket and a lot of pink jackets as well. Thank you!
