Lately, I've been admiring all the great leggings outfits on Instagram. People seem to be genuinely excited to style outfits around them and sharing their looks proactively. I always find that some of my style icons who veer on the sportier side will, every so often, throw up a sports-bra mirror selfie or a quick snap after a yoga workout, but rarely are we thrilled to construct adorable looks with that new colorblock legging set we just added to our drawer.
Sheltering in place has seemed to change that, and I, for one, am glad for it. Even though there's definitely still a strong appeal behind the sweat-chic look — from white joggers to the high-waisted variation — leggings have always been a tried-and-true athleisure staple, and they're great for a quick walk around the block, too.
Some of our favorite leggings, from the likes of Tory Sport, Outdoor Voices, H&M, ASOS, and Universal Standard are also made with cute little details that elevate an outfit instantly. I frankly can't wait to tuck in my white tee to Zara's slit-hem pair and finish with a blazer, loafers, and headband for my next Zoom meeting (Blair Waldorf, but make it WFH fashion, am I right?). Scroll through for a few ideas, some of which have suggestions for outerwear, then shop some of my favorite leggings available now.
