Leggings are staples in many wardrobes given their versatile and comfortable nature. While some specific pairs are great for various workouts, the stretchy pants also work for those day-to-day looks when you’re out and about. Today, I thought I’d talk about the latter and showcase some of the chicest pieces to wear with leggings for autumn 2021.
In reality, you could pair a smattering of items with leggings, but there are a few key pieces that I think will elevate your legging looks even more. I scrolled through Instagram to uncover the forward items some of my favorite fashion follows are styling with their leggings right now. There’s everything from a bold outerwear choice to a specific knitwear silhouette that’s quite polished.
All of that shopping and styling inspiration is coming at you below.
1. Oversize White Button-Down Shirt
A white button-down shirt is timeless, and one in an oversized cut is particularly modern with leggings.

& Other Stories Classic Cotton Shirt (£65)

Stradivarius Split Front Leggings in Black (£18)
2. Quilted Coat
This specific puffer is incredibly chic with black leggings. The proportions are just great. That said, any forward quilted jacket works well this season.
