Leggings as Pants - Yes or No?

If you were to ask me this question a couple of years ago, my response would have definitely been a version of “not for me”, but thanks to a stirrup option from Balenziaga I got my hands on recently, I find myself a firm believer in leggings as pants trend.

One thing to keep in mind though is that not all leggings are created equal. You’re definitely looking for a dressier option, like this pair from Tory Burch for example. Something that fits like leggings yet has a bit more thickness and has enough design elements to make it into more of a pant/legging hybrid (another favorite here & here).

Why I love them? Well first, they are a really cool paired with longer blazers (like this one for example) and sportier toppers like raincoats & puffer jackets (LOVE this one), especially if you opt for a dressier shoe option like sock booties for example. Secondly, they look really now and modern worn with long coats and sneakers, and third, they are basically the new skinny jeans and are definitely here to stay given how comfortable they are! So, I guess it’s definitely a YAY to leggings as pants for me. What about you guys?

Balenciaga Hourglass Houndstooth Wool Blazer (also love this, this, and this one), Jogger Fuseau Stretch Ponte Stirrup Leggings (also love this, this, and this), BB Reporter Bag (similar here and here), and Pointy Toe Sock Bootie (also love these, these, and these ones) | Roberi And Fraud Doris 2.0 Sunglasses

    They are for sure not created equal! But if you get the right ones, I think you can definitely wear them as trousers!

      Yes!

  • I absolutely agreed with you here, it does takes a specific legging style to look good, this one is very beautiful to wear. And pairing it with a blazer created just a classy look all together. Very lovely! Joyeux Noel!

    Like you said, I think if they’re thick enough then I think it’s okay to wear them as pants. I love the way you styled them in this post!
