Let's Talk About Leggings—Here's What to Wear With Them for Autumn 2021

·3-min read

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.
