How to wear leggings the chic way, every day of the week
First we need to address the following question: Is it ever OK to wear leggings as pants?
A couple of years ago I would have said “only as athletic wear or as a layering piece under a skirt.” But over the last few years, the line between what is a pant and what is a legging has been so blurred that it feels wrong to write off all leggings as being gym or innerwear-exclusive.
It really boils down to the thickness of the fabric and how you style them. If your leggings are flimsy enough that you can see through them, well… consider them underwear.
If your leggings are thicker and never see-through, just like the ones we offer here at Leggings All The Time, then you can wear them like pants.
Today we will show you how to wear leggings every day of the week, going from chic, work-inspired outfits to casual, hanging-out-with-friends outfits for the weekend.
Outfit of the day: Beige leggings + black overcoat + black floral blouse + black heels
Beige and black can look brilliant together. Both are neutrals, chic, timeless and there is enough contrast between both so you grab attention in the right way. Our sand beige leggings add a touch of contemporary fashion to this classic outfit.
Looking classy while feeling super comfy, this outfit achieves the best of both worlds. If you want to grab your own Sand Beige Leggings, grab them here - from high waist to plus size, we got them all.

Outfit of the day: Ebony tartan leggings + beige overcoat + denim shirt + brown boots
We love tartan leggings! In our opinion there is not a better way to elevate a legging to business pant status than adding a chic tartan design to it.
This beautiful outfit plays with the subtleties of blue and brown. The denim shirt and leather boots keep it a little rugged without losing its classy aesthetic.
Our Ebony Tartan Leggings feature a wonderful mix of brown, yellow and black shades. They are as elegant as versatile, you can grab yours here.
Outfit of the day: City tartan leggings + gray suede jacket + gray turtleneck + black boots
Blue and gray are a great combination for business. Men love to use these colors for a reason, and we can learn from that. Since the colors strongly suggest business, we wanted to keep this outfit more youthful and not that serious (boring).
A soft light gray turtleneck found its way to our hands ;) We added gray suede for its subtle aesthetic and our city tartan leggings for that touch of playful blue. For a finishing touch, black leather boots. And there you go, an stylish outfit that will go great in business-casual offices.
Wanna give our City Tartans a go? Get yours here.
Outfit of the day: Autumn tartan leggings + gray open cardigan + white knit sweater + black heels
Sweaters go great with leggings. If you ever want to elevate an athleisure outfit, just add a neutral color sweater. Never fails ;)
Here, we are matching our autumn tartan leggings for a relaxed thursday outfit. Elegant enough for a meeting with clients and really comfortable.
Outfit of the day: Olive green leggings + beige overcoat + reddish brown blouse + brown boots
Ah olive green... a good shade of olive green is a must for every stylish girl. Olive green is elegant and very versatile, but not as popular as black and blue. That means olive green can give that stylish edge you were looking for.
Here, Elba is wearing her olive green leggings with different shades of brown. Her coat shows the lightest shade of brown in the ensemble, a rich camel brown shade (dark beige) that has a wonderful contrast with her leggings. Her blouse features a reddish brown shade similar to burgundy and adorned with a geometric design for grabbing a little attention. And to finish the look, a cute pair of walnut brown boots.
Outfit of the day: Peach pink leggings + military jacket + white top + beige flats
It's saturday, time to relax and enjoy the weekend. We are keeping it casual but put-together. Our rugged military jacket, a simple white top that fits just right, and our peach pink leggings, a neutral that will surprise you. To finish the look, beige flats or heels (just follow your heart) and you are ready to go.
Outfit of the day: Chalchi yoga leggings + denim jacket + white boho blouse + white sneakers
We love our denim! But we also love our leggings. Match them up for sunday! Here, Elba is wearing her favorite yoga leggings and white sneakers, we added a denim jacket and a white bohemian blouse for a lounge look you can rock everywhere.
If you like our Chalchi yoga leggings, grab them here. They look awesome with their matching bra.
