One common misconception about fashion girls is that they always dress with the notion of "No pain, no gain" in mind. But here's a little secret, fashion girls have their lazy days, too! And when they do, it's tempting to just forego all the style rules they've meticulously followed and occasionally broke on frisky days. T-shirt and leggings, anyone?

We all know that wearing your leggings as pants is a fashion crime Blair Waldorf can never forgive, but with the athleisure trend on the rise, style stars like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have found ways on how to rock a pair of leggings without looking like fashion faux pas. We've always been iffy about heading out with a pair of leggings when it's not gym day, but we have to admit, there are a couple of OOTDs that involve a pair of leggings and sneakers that look edgy, cool, but more importantly 100% comfortable! So read on and take your style poison from these comfy looks that never sacrifice style.


Although the dress-and-sneakers combo has allowed even the girliest girl to wear a pair of sneakers, a lot of them still tend to skip the rubber shoes whenever they can. Master comfortable style by wearing your comfy leggings with a pair of pink sneaks and add pink accents to your look like a fuzzy pink sweater for an instant dose of girly cool.


Swap your white sneakers for a 2017-approved black sneakers for a fresh and edgy look for the day. Throw on a trendy military jacket and you’re all set.

Embrace the sportiness of the sneakers-and-leggings style equation and end your look with an equally rugged combo, the denim-jacket-and-tee. Grab your large, round sunnies for extra style points.


Up the ante of your sneakers and leggings pairing by adding another comfortable piece to your look—an oversized cardigan.


Who said that leggings can only be worn for gym days? Opt for a pair of edgy leather leggings, throw on a basic tee, and grab a pair of low maintenance black sneakers for a cute play outfit. Throw on an oversized coat and you've got yourself an OOTD that’s perfect for your internship, too. Talk about double duty!
