Women’s leggings have become a total wardrobe staple within the last decade, thanks to the athleisure trend, and we are loving it! Leggings offer the ultimate comfort of being able to bend and stretch all day, coupled with a sleek, convenient pants-alternative that goes with everything already in your closet. Read on to get a few styling tips for how and where to wear leggings. Because honestly, when it comes to plus size leggings in all colors, patterns and fits, Dia & Co has got you covered.
Leggings in fashion have come a long way. Back in the ‘80s, opaque tights with bodysuits or bike shorts were more of the go-to look for activewear. But the more we wanted fashion to be realistic and durable, the more leggings changed. Today workout leggings have vastly improved, as they’re made with high-tech, durable and recyclable materials that also wick away moisture to keep you cool. If you’re looking for a solid workout legging, try leggings with pockets, either on the leg or in the waistline. These types of leggings are ideal for running and weight training, as they hold your wallet, keys or phone while you’re breaking a sweat. Plus size high waisted leggings offer great coverage, especially during winter months, but they can also be worn year-round if that’s your thing.
If you’re looking for a total athletic look, particularly for working out, try a matching legging and sports bra set. Brands like FILA and Girlfriend Collective offer these activewear sets right here on Dia.com. You’ll look as fierce as you feel in this all-in-one ensemble. Most of us probably mix and match, though, when it comes to working out. If this is you, but you want to create a looser look, mix solid black leggings with a colorful tee or solid white leggings with a patterned crop top. The key is to mix solid colors or shades with patterns and brights to create an eye-catching workout look.
If you’re looking for stylish outfits to create with fashion-forward leggings, styling is super easy. Style your faux leather leggings or tuxedo leggings with heels or heeled booties, a classic white tee shirt and a moto jacket. You can even wear these types of fashion leggings under a mini skirt or skater dress for extra warmth and coverage on windy days. Some leggings are made of jean material, or jeggings. These can be styled just like skinny jeans, with low sneakers and slip-ons and loose-fitting tops and tees. During the winter, swap your footwear for high boots over your leggings to stay warm. It’s always a good rule of thumb to keep a pair of plus size black leggings in your wardrobe, too—they really do go with everything and offer extra warmth whenever needed.
More and more we’re seeing designers getting in on the trend of designing bright and patterned leggings you can wear any time. These types of fashionable leggings are perfect for livening up your wardrobe, especially for working out. You might not wear them under a dress, but they make a great alternative to pants, any time. Trust us, running errands feel so much better when you’re doing them in brightly colored leggings!
