Happy weekend, friends! Today I wanted to share some pre-Fall outfit inspo with 5 of my go-to “formulas” when styling black leggings. The featured leggings I’m wearing have good “hold,” a flattering high rise, and a snug fit on me in XXS. The 7/8 length option on sale is new this year with the addition of side pockets! Note the pockets and side seams make this a little more sporty than their plain black live in leggings. Here’s how they look by themselves with a Nike sports bra:
5 ways to style black leggings
Formula: Cropped moto jacket over a longer top or hoodie + sneakers. Add a sleek baseball cap on those troublesome hair days.
I thought this jacket was great everywhere except for the belt, which is not moveable so the tail end just hangs! I wanted to show the fit here since I know some aren’t as bothered by that. I prefer this Blank NYC jacket that I have, but note it’s more fitted with a slightly strong shoulder.
2. Cozy but Chic
Formula: Poncho or tunic sweater + over the knee boots or ankle booties.
3. Casual on the go
Formula: Slouchy waffle tee layered over a striped tunic + slip on sneakers.
Formula: Army jacket, rain boots, big cozy scarf + a hands free crossbody bag.
Formula: Timeless stripes + trench coat paired with Chelsea booties. Add an optional pop of color with a bright bag!
Which of these 5 pairings is your favorite?
