Leggings are a wardrobe staple for many. A go-to for you? Wonderful. You’re going to be quite interested in the intel coming your way. While scrolling through the feeds of some of my favourite fashion people, I saved a few outfit ideas that I think are particularly chic that feature leggings teamed with other of-the-moment basics.
Sure, you may have a few pieces you tend to wear with your favourite leggings, but it could be worth considering pairing them with the elevated basics ahead to create those A+ looks for winter and beyond. Below you’ll uncover the outfits I saved, along with shopping inspiration focused on both the basics that look chic with leggings, and yes, a few standout pairs of leggings if you could use a new pair.
