Sure, leggings are one of the most comfortable garments out there but, as you know, there are so many ways they can go wrong. So, leave it to Kendall Jenner to rewrite the rules of wearing leggings by styling them in chic, flattering ways. And based on her most recent street style photographs, it seems the Insta-model hasn’t met a pair of stretch pants she doesn’t like. She’s been spotted wearing them post-gym, to turned-out work appearances, and for everyday errands and chilling with friends.
Herewith, the refreshed guidelines for sporting leggings outside the gym, inspired by the master herself.
Rule 1: Pair With Over-the-Knee Boots
Replace your skinny jeans with black leggings and your a favorite top and over-the-knee boots for a dressed-up weekend look. Bonus points for a bomber jacket.
Rule 2: Add a Statement Coat
Bold outerwear adds instant glam and you can still be in comfort mode within seconds (particularly smart for plane or long car rides).
Rule 3: Dress Up With a Matched Set
All legging options are not basic black, and bold colors or prints can make just as much of an impact as a flirty cocktail dress.
Rule 4: Throw on a Moto Jacket After Your Workout
The athleisure trend is alive and well and Kendall pulls it off with aplomb. By throwing on her moto jacket over her gym clothes, she can get away with wearing her gym clothes all day long.
