5 Comfy Outfits With Leggings

Putting on comfy leggings and a great sweater can really be the ultimate cozy outfit this time of year. It’s easy, comfortable and when done right is totally appropriate for leaving the house in. I’m sharing some of my best tips for wearing leggings the right way!

What To Wear With Comfy Leggings

I think it’s important to keep one rule and one rule only in mind when thinking of what to wear with comfy leggings. Leggings are NOT PANTS and that means you should COVER YOUR BUTT (and your lady bits). With that in mind, I recommend wearing your favorite oversized sweaters and cardigans. The great thing is, the oversized pieces help to balance out the fitted leggings on your bottom half. A few ideas could be your favorite long tee with a cardigan. I love an oversized sweater paired with a fitted denim jacket (which you can see here). Or if you want to even dress it up a bit, add a nice camel coat or wool trench. You’d be surprised how versatile your leggings can be!

Comfy Legging Styles

There’s no RIGHT choice when it comes to comfy leggings. It’s what you feel most comfortable in. I prefer ones that have a bit of stretch in them so they don’t get baggy. But I also don’t want to live in my lululemon Align pants either. So a happy medium is ideal for me. Plus, I like it when they have a slightly higher rise and wide waistband. I find this to be not only more comfortable but more flattering. Another fun feature to look out for are fleece-lined leggings. They’re great for staying extra warm in the winter!

Whatever you choose, I just recommend that you check that it passes the see-through test. Bend over while they’re on and make sure you can’t see your underwear through them.

These instantly make your outfit feel much more dressy than it is. I recommend sizing up in them as they’re very fitted. You can also very easily dress these up with booties and blazers for a party ready look.
