Leggings and Sweaters: A Match Made in Heaven

Ahh, sweaters. What could be more comforting than putting on your favorite sweater when the weather is brisk? How about pairing that sweater with your best pair of leggings? Sweaters never really go out of style, and leggings have been a must-have fashion item for years. Put the two together, and you have a match made in heaven. It’s such a comfortable combination, that you might even feel like you’re wearing your sweats out in public, but it’s way, way more stylish. Of course, you can’t pair just any sweater from your closet with any old pair of leggings. This is a look that takes a little bit of thought to pull off correctly.

Choose Your Long Sweaters Wisely

We’ve all seen women sporting this look: too-revealing leggings with too-short sweaters. Unless you’re into the idea of feeling eyes on your backside everywhere you go, you may want to opt for a sweater with a length that gives some extra-long coverage. Longer cardigans can work very well with denim leggings, whether they’re worn buttoned or not. Knit pullovers are another smart-looking choice. Form-fitting, thigh-length, cable knit sweaters really make this look work well. If you simply must wear a waist-length sweater with your leggings, then a coordinated skirt can help you pull the look off without attracting the wrong kind of attention.

Stay Classy

Sweaters and leggings may seem like casualwear, but there are ways to give this ensemble a touch of class. Pair them with a neutral duffel coat, some silver accent jewelry, and some classy heels, and you’re ready to get down to business. Leggings come in so many amazing colors and patterns, that having some fun with this look is irresistible. Animal print leggings, polka dots, floral motifs, and eye-catching abstract geometric patterns – there’s a design out there for just about everyone. Pair an exciting tribal pattern with a color-coordinated pullover. Top off your bright cobalt leggings with a Nordic sweater in aluminum or cypress. Match gray scale geometric leggings with a flat black wool tunic. On the weekend, let your imagination run wild.

Accessorize to Complete the Look

We’ve already established the wonderfulness of sweaters and leggings together, but what else should you wear with them? Infinity scarves are a nice touch. Like leggings, they’re available in a wide array of colors and patterns, they look great, and they’re super-comfortable. Boots are a popular footwear choice for this look. Knee-length riding-style boots work well, but if you’re after a more rebellious look, you could always go for some engineer boots with silver ankle buckles. If you tend to carry a lot of things with you, you’re probably going to want to go with an oversized bag. Tights have no pockets (for good reason), and most sweaters are the same way. So opt for an oversized tote or purse that coordinates well with your boots. Whether you’re the mild or wild type (or a little of both), we have the leggings you’re looking for. From boot-cut to Capri, abstract to animal print, neon to denim, we’ve got it all. Check out our vast selection of leggings, where you’re sure to find several that are perfect for you.
