Outliving The "Trendy" Tag: Leggings For Day Or Night

Leggings have been quite the contentious item since their recent revival. "Tights are not pants!", the rallying cry of one camp, has strong opposition in the world of the fabulous and fashionable.

So long as one of the pieces on top is long enough to cover your bottom, we think leggings can be useful for building layered winter looks – the slim silhouette on the bottom balances the multiple pieces that can create bulk on top. Try the looks below to take your leggings through a winter weekend.

Saturday Night: Pair sleek cropped leggings ($65) with an embellished tunic ($387) that’s long enough to wear as a dress next season. For now, add this Theory jacket (was $748, now $523) and a big, bright cashmere scarf ($68) for a punch of cozy color.

Sunday Afternoon: Ribbed jersey leggings ($46.74) are a laid-back choice for daytime, and American Apparel’s Sheer Jersey Chemise
($22) is long enough to act as a base layer on the top. Throw on a belted cardigan ($88) and patterned scarf ($18) to top it off.
