We've heard this fashion saying a dozen of times, "Never ever wear your leggings as pants!" But fashion rules are made to broken anyway and let's face it, leggings are way more comfortable than a pair of jeans will ever be. We're sacrificing fashion for comfort while still keeping our style game in check with these five leggings-as-pants OOTD ideas.

Wearing a dress over your pants is cool. Take your cue from that style equation and wear a casual shirtdress over a pair of black leggings. Cap the look off with an edgy pair of boots to make a style statement.

Pull off the leggings-as-pants style idea with ease by sticking to one color only! Slay the minimalist style with an all-black OOTD and throw on a colored third-piece to dress it up.

Embrace your sporty side and top your shirt and leggings style pairing with a military-inspired jacket. End the look with a pair of sporty sneaks and score an A in Athleisure 101.


Dress up a casual pair of black leggings with a luxe knit and gold accessories to boot!

Give your black leggings a major style upgrade and swap your old pair for a leather version! Just throw on a white tee and white sneaks and you’re all set.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
