3 cute ways to wear bright leggings

Been wearin’ those black leggings since forever? Put ’em aside for the moment and step into a cool, Technicolor pair.
We love how rainbow-inspired leggings brighten up dark fall outfits, while still keepin’ those gams toasty. Here are some simple (yet stylin’) ways to wear these colorful cuties.

Pick a pair of pretty, poppin’ leggings.
Feeling these electric blue ones from American Apparel? We are, too!

Teal Cotton Spandex Jersey Leggings, $26,

Style 1: Sleek and Slouchy

The classic tunic and legging combo is super flattering, especially when everything is black except for the splash of color from your leggings. Pair with a pair of knee boots to show less color or ankle boots to flash the hot hue.

Rubbish Slub Knit Tunic, $24,

American Eagle Marley Flat Boot, $40, 

Style 2: Winter-Ready Shorts

We’re still shorts-obsessed this winter. This neutral outfit is such a statement maker (the jacket is amazing!) with bright leggings. Keep the shirt tucked in to make it more preppy or leave it untucked for a cool, rumpled vibe.

Black Satin Shorts, $23,

Apt. 9 Floral Tee, $20,
Trooper Jacket, $28,

Style 3: Comfy-yet-Feminine  
A bubble skirt and a t-shirt is a great go-to fall outfit. Pull on your bold leggings and pop on a cardi. Add slick flats for a modern ballerina feel.

 Paris Chambray Bubble Skirt, $35,

Express Cropped Sequin Cardigan, $50,
