Leggings continue to be trendy this Fall-Winter season as many major fashion houses and mainstream commercial brands continue to offer leggings in their collections. I can see why leggings have been favored by trendsetters and fashionistas everywhere- they're comfortable to wear, versatile, and always keep your legs warm!
Although leggings are neither pants, nor tights they're usually more on the tights side, which is why I suggest you think of them as such when styling them: wear them with any mini, sweater, shirt dress or mini skirt.
Some leggings are designed to look more like skinny pants or jeans. These are made from thicker fabrics and generally have some added embellishments like pockets, zippers, leather applications or buttons. You may pair this style of leggings with long shirts, cardigans, boyfriend
sweaters, or blazers.
Here are several ideas on how to wear your leggings this Fall-Winter 2013-2014.
With a mini skirt, a peter pan collar sweater and cropped leather jacket. This look combines several trends of the season such as black-and-white, plaid, and leather. A thick fabric skirt like this one looks great with leggings. Make sure that your leggings go beyond your ankle boots line, so there is no skin showing. Wearing your mini skirt with opaque, neutral colored leggings and ankle boots will make your legs look miles long.

With a sweater dress and fitted jacket. You may want to combine your sweater dress with leggings and a fitted blazer for a classier look. There are several Fall-Winter 2013-2014 trends which have worked really well together in this set: to-the-knee boots, red dress, animal print and layering.
With a tuxedo blazer and loose fitting top. In this set, a trendy tuxedo blazer adds some coziness to the look, while studded pumps bring out chic, rocker glam. Experiment with this clash of styles to create an unforgettable and telling look. The conflict between the romantic, flowy top, mens-inspired tuxedo blazer and glitzy pumps is both edgy and stylish.
With a midi dress and trench coat. This set gives you an example of how leggings can be actually worn as tights. You can easily go for tights instead of leggings in this outfit, but leggings add an interesting twist to the look.
The Fall-Winter season offers lots of opportunities for experimenting with your outfits. There are so many fashion trends to explore and adapt to your own personal taste and style and incorporating leggings into your outfits is a great way to experiment and have fun with your wardrobe.
