Leggings aren’t going anywhere in 2021, so we’ve pulled together the best outfit inspiration we could find to show you how to wear them.
Loungewear has been our go-to during the pandemic and leggings are the perfect way to still look sophisticated while remaining comfy.
Despite black leggings getting a bad rap, they’re one of the most versatile and easy-to-wear items out there – and did we mention, they don’t dig into your skin like jeans? Sign.us.up.
Here, we show you how to wear them to look chic in 2021.
Split-hem leggings are our favourite way to wear them in 2021.
Flattering and sophisticated, they instantly elevate any outfit.
Grece Graham teams them with a white shirt and Bottega Veneta belt, or take outfit inspiration from Tiffany Hsu and wear all black to tie the look together.
With chunky boots
We love wet-look leggings paired with a knitted hoody and chunky boots.
It’s so simple, but still manages to look put together.
Under a coat
Black leggings are so easy to wear with a longline jacket or coat.
With a blazer
To smarten a black of simple black leggings up, add an oversized blazer and heels.
There’s nothing complicated about the look, but it just works.
Add a sweater vest
Leggings don’t need to be boring. Layer them up and add a sweater vest, another one of this winter’s biggest trends.
