I’ll admit it. I’ve never been a big leggings person. Sure, I'll wear them stumbling through my favorite dance cardio video, but if I just want to be comfortable running errands or grabbing dinner on a chilly evening I’ll usually opt for a sweatsuit or my favorite broken in vintage Levis. However, unless you’re Kim Kardashian, taking a sweatsuit from day to night isn’t the easiest feat. And the Levis? Well, let’s just say I may have overindulged in grammy's famous holiday Chex Mix.
Re-enter: leggings. Truthfully, I owe them an apology. The roundup below is proof that with temperatures dropping, a classic pair of fleece lined black leggings are the perfect base to show off a statement coat. Throw on a fuzzy bomber jacket and gold hoops and you’re basically Rihanna. Maybe you’ve known this all along, or maybe you’re like me and have just jumped on the legging train. Either way, have a scroll. You'll thank me later.
