4 fresh ways to rock leggings as pants

You may or may not have heard about the great #leggingsaspants debate happening at GL HQ. Whether you’re on one side or the other, we can all admit it’s time to scrap the usual leggings and sweatshirt combo and try somethin’ a little more daring. Stick with your fashion rezzie and go for a totally different go-to get-up! Check out these four simple styles that’ll bring your leggings into 2013 with a bang.

Crazy clash

Go bold with a patterned pair of leggings under a different pattern top. Try and keep both of the pieces in the same color family and don’t go overboard on the accessories—this look is a statement all in itself. Keep the shoes neutral to draw attention to the clashing patterns.

Experiment with texture

Have you been dying to try the leather legging trend? Now’s your chance! Pair your pair with a pretty tunic to soften up the edgy vibe, or try an oversized chambray shirt to keep the look as tough as can be.

Boldly go

Pick a funky pair of patterned leggings and let them shine with a coordinating blouse and neutral accessories. You can go as bold as you want as long as your top is a solid color and doesn’t draw away from the awesome print on your pants. So cute!
