In recent years, it was typical to see leggings paired with sneakers or a pair of slide sandals from time to time, but that's about it. This winter, celebrities have been wearing them outside of the gym a lot more than usual, even dressing them up with chic outerwear and jewellery. And the particular shoe style that's most often worn with jeans this time of year? Ankle boots.
Yes, you read correctly—leather ankle boots (and not just Uggs) have made their way back into celebrities' legging outfits, many of which have heels. We'll admit that they look very, very chic. Take Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, for example, in her long vest, athletic leggings, and black suede ankle boots.
