  stylish-ways-to-wear-leggings-leggings-outfit-ideas-looking-fly-on-a-dime Leggings get a bad rap. I mean, they’re comfortable, oh so comfy, but sometimes they can came off as a bit…boring. Or blah. Or like you just threw something on before leaving the house or what you wear when lounging around the house.
But that doesn’t have to be the case! Instead of simply wearing them with a t-shirt or tunic, you can rock leggings in a stylish, chic way.

Printed Leggings
The thought of wearing printed pants can seem a bit scary, but they can actually be figure flattering. Thin, vertical stripes can make your legs appear longer and a smaller print is a little less jarring to the eye. And if all else fails, wear a print that incorporates black, which is super slimming. One of the ways I love to wear printed leggings is with layered shirts, like this vintage Mickey Mouse sweatshirt over a button down. The sweatshirt and leggings alone might look a bit too dressed down, but pairing the shirt with it created the perfect casual chic look.
Pair with Statement Pieces
An instantly chic fashion rule: dress a “plain” item up with a statement piece. This is the quick way to elevate any style. My plain black leggings got an instant upgrade thanks to other pieces like colorful shorts {remember, you can wear shorts in the winter!} and a thrifted blazer with jeweled lapels. The blazer and shorts are so cute that the “simple” black leggings work perfectly.
Layer Your Leggings
And finally, another way to wear leggings is to simply layer them under your pants or tights. Who says you have to stop wearing distressed jeans when it’s cold? Just layer a pair of colorful or printed leggings underneath. Also, the past few years I’ve become obsessed with fishnet stockings. But if it’s a bit too cold for fishnets alone, I wear black or nude leggings underneath for added warmth.
See, leggings don’t have to be boring at all. Have fun, wear a bold print or get to layering.
