Five Ways to Style Leggings

I started GYPO in an effort to get out of my yoga pants rut and I can honestly say I’ve come a long way. I love the feeling of confidence I get when I wear a put-together, polished outfit. That doesn’t mean I still don’t wear my yoga pants, I just don’t spend days in them like I used to. There are those days however where I want it all, I want the comfort of my yoga pants paired with a completely put-together look. Those days where the idea of putting on jeans just isn’t in the cards. We all have those days, right? So how do we have both comfort and style? The answer is a great pair of leggings. Leggings are an absolutely amazing combination of fashion and function. Plus, you can easily dress them up or dress them down. Leggings have such versatility that I was able to come up with 21 Days of Leggings outfits and I want to share them all with you in my FREE download.

Yes, I Said 21 Days of Leggings Outfits

Not only do I style 21 days of leggings outfits, but there’s also a shopping list to help you. Chances are you already have a lot of the items in your closet. But, if you don’t, you’re armed with a list of what you need to fill in the gaps. There’s no guesswork involved. I styled the outfits below using my favorite faux leather leggings. However, these looks will work beautifully with any black leggings, and for those days when jeans are the answer, mix and match these looks with them too. That’s the beauty of outfit formulas®, they are a base, a starting point. The more confident you get with your style, the more you’ll play around with them to make them your own. And seriously, that’s my favorite part. I love seeing the confidence pour out of the GYPO pretties!

Below is a small sample of the outfit formulas® you’ll see in the 21 Days of Leggings guide and how I styled them. So what are you waiting for? Download my FREE guide and show me your style! Tag your leggings looks on Instagram or the Pretties Facebook page with #gypooutfitformulas!

Option #1

Belted Cardigan + White Tank + Leggings + Leopard Flats

For my first look, I’m styling my faux black leather leggings with a rusty/burnt orange belted cardigan I bought a few years ago. My white tank is from my closet and my leopard mules add the perfect pop of print. If it’s one of those days where you know you’re not leaving the house, you can easily swap in some cozy leopard print slippers. As I said above, all of these looks will coordinate with any black leggings.

Option #2

Moto Jacket + Striped Top + Leggings + Leopard Ankle Boots or White Sneakers

I have to say this is one of my favorite outfits using my faux leather leggings. This is a perfect example of how to dress up your leggings. My leather moto jacket is one of my investment pieces from a few years ago. Then I paired it up with one of the few striped shirts I have in my closet. I may have a slight striped shirt addiction. Finally, to finish off this look I added my leopard print boots for some fun pattern mixing!

Option #3

Neutral Sweater + White Tank + Leggings + Snake Print Shoes

I’m switching it up with look number three and going a bit more casual. First, I opted for a neutral sweater. In this case, I choose a gray one that has a cute little twist detail in the front. I put a white tank top under the sweater and again paired it with my black leggings and styled it with some snake print slip-ons. If you’re not into snake print you can swap them out for some metallic slip-ons. And unfortunately, this sweater isn’t available anymore but this one is similar.

Option #4

Chambray Button-Down + White Tee + Leggings + Leopard Ankle Boots or White Sneakers

This leggings look has closet staples written all over it! Starting with my chambray shirt all the way to my white sneakers, everything in this look is directly from my closet. Remember, a polished look doesn’t have to be complicated. So don’t overthink it!

Option #5

Printed Cardigan + Black Tee + Leggings + Black Ankle Boots or White Sneakers

For look number five I decided to dress up my leggings again. This time I started with one of my tried and true outfit formulas® of black top, black bottoms, and paired that with my black boots. This is an absolutely amazing base that gives you plenty of options. Finally, I paired it with a printed cardigan as my topper however, you could easily incorporate any topper you like. Perhaps a printed boyfriend blazer or a utility jacket.
