Whether you’re back in the office or working from home, there are plenty of ways to wear leggings to work and still look professional. Check out the tips below to up your style game when wearing leggings!
When it comes to work or any professional environment, I would opt for solid black. Not only is it easy to style but it looks sleek, chic and sophisticated.
Go for a Faux Leather Look
If you want to spice up your look a bit, go for a faux leather look. It adds a bit of edge to any outfit but still keeps it in the professional realm.
Style with a Dressy Top
Leggings definitely have a more casual look but can easily be dressed up. The easiest way to do this is with a dressy top. Try a silk top with a bow at the neck, a chiffon blouse with flowy sleeves or a pretty lace button up.
Adding layers to an outfit is like the icing on the cake! I feel like this is the piece that really completes the whole look. Depending on your environment, try adding a blazer, structured leather jacket, tweed jacket, trench coat or a longer woven coat.
Pair with the Right Footwear
With black leggings, I prefer black footwear for a streamlined look (think pointed toe flats, heels or boots). But of course, you can also add in pops or color or prints to bring an element of fun to the outfit.
Minimal accessories like simple gold jewelry are always best for a professional look. If you work in a more creative field, try adding in some statement pieces or fun hair accessories!
