The Best Things to Wear With Leggings, Jeggings and those Skinny Jeans

Skinny pants, including leggings, jeggings, and skinny jeans, are a fashionable addition to any wardrobe and open up a world of possibilities for women to be stylish and comfortable. Lots of things go with skinny pants, but it can be overwhelming to find the right items with so many options available. Show your style with the best things to wear with those leggings and jeggings.

Chic High-Shafted Boots

It’s easy to turn a basic pair of skinny pants into something amazing with a good pair of high-shafted statement boots. Flat riding boots with a loose sweater and leggings makes a perfect outfit for running errands, or you can dress things up with heeled tall boots, jeggings, and a leather jacket for a chic outfit for a night out.

Baggy Button-Down

One of the easiest ways to look put together is to pair your skinny pants with an oversized button-down shirt. Try a white or chambray shirt with light jeggings for a casual look, or wear a patterned button-down with dark skinny jeans and heels for a more office-appropriate outfit. It’s hard to go wrong with this combination, so play around with different tops and pants to find the perfect look that is effortlessly sophisticated.

Basic T-shirt

Skinny pants can make even a simple t-shirt look stylish. Wearing a simple t-shirt or a graphic tee is a great way to show some personality while still be comfortable as you’re out and about. For an edgier look, try an oversized graphic t-shirt tucked into distressed skinny jeans with a denim jacket, or go for a plain t-shirt and fun leggings and tennis shoes for a stylish outfit for running around town.

Bright Blazer or Jacket

Even worn-in skinny pants can go to the next level with a great blazer. Adding a simple accessory can make the pants perfect for the office or just create a chic ensemble for a night out. A stylish blouse, classic pumps, and a tailored blazer work well with dark skinny jeans for a stylish office look, and an oversized sweater, bright blazer, and distressed jeggings can take the outfit out on the town. In general, try to pair bright blazers and jackets with darker washed pants for a more sophisticated look. The same idea also applies throughout the winter—a fun statement jacket can dress up any pair of skinny pants and make it appropriate for the season and stylish.

Comfortable Active Wear

Skinny pants don’t always have to be dressy—they also look great dressed down. Pair a running tank with leggings and tennis shoes for a comfortable athleisure look that can take you from running errands to running at the gym. An oversized hoodie and sneakers works great with jeggings to keep you comfortable and street stylish for just about any activity.

Stylish Tunic

Some women are scared to wear shorter shirts with skinny pants, but tunics are the perfect flattering option that look great with all kinds of skinny pants. Tunics tend to hit around the mid-thigh and can be worn a number of ways. Try it with a belt and skinny jeans for a dressier look to highlight an hourglass figure, or wear a fun patterned tunic with leggings for a stylish look that is flexible and comfortable.

Mini Dress

Part of the beauty of skinny pants is that they can extend many other items in your wardrobe, including shorter skirts and dresses. A short summer dress can be worn with leggings during the colder months—just add a cute pair of booties, a jacket, and a scarf to make it more appropriate for the season. Even a fancier dress can be made more casual by pairing it with leggings and flats or tennis shoes for a pulled together look that can take you anywhere.

A selection of Spring Jeans from Bank Fashion

Whatever the season, whatever the weather, it is safe to say that most of us will still be wearing a pair of jeans in some form. Since the 1950s, when denim moved from being a fabric made for workwear, to a wardrobe staple made cool by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Brigitte Bardot, jeans have become a must have for any woman, worn casually by day, and dressed up by night. And, right at this moment, there are simply so many styles available that we can safely say we are almost in the midst of a denim explosion.

But what jeans to choose? The ladies of the outfit sharing site Avenue 57 are constantly having discussions of the merits of the boyfriend jean, with most believing these are best suited to boyish slim figures. Bootcut have been the jeans of choice for curvy ladies for many years, but recently the tide has been turning on what are sometimes considered mom jeans. Now curvy ladies (me included) are actually embracing skinny and straight leg jeans and finding these can look very stylish on the size 14+ figure. And as for coloured denims, these seem set to stick around for a long time.

You can find a great selection of women’s jeans at Bank Fashion. From skinnies to coloured denim, by way of jeggings and boyfriend jeans, there are just so many great styles to choose from. Plus they have some seriously impressive brands on offer too, sure to please the pickiest of denim connoisseurs.

Kate’s Olympic wardrobe – The story so far.

One of the most exciting things about the Olympics from a fashion point of view is that we are going to be seeing a lot of the Duchess of Cambridge, which of course means lots of fab outfits to pour over. Kate has so far been seen in cut price Hobbs, cut price Zara…and CHRISTOPHER KANE! (Cue mega excitement from me!)

On Thursday, during the final Olympic countdown, Kate looked very cool and summery in the ‘Wessex’ dress from Hobbs. This was a typical Kate style dress, nipped in waistband and full-skirted, with a pretty grey and white loose check pattern. The dress was on sale for just £35, but of course had sold out pretty quickly. Kate teamed her look with a pair of espadrilles. Kate’s shoes are almost a sign that signifies summer, when the espadrilles appear it is safe to assume that London is feeling the heat. This particular pair is from Pied a Terre and cost £80. Kate wore the natural shade, but they are also available in black, green, navy and red.

Kate’s next outfit was more casual, but no less bargainous. She wore a pair of Zara jeans in cobalt blue to welcome the Olympic torch to Buckingham Palace. She teamed this with some rather high Stuart Weitzman wedges. It has been rumoured that the Zara jeans were another sale purchase, costing just £18, and the colour looked just amazing yet again on Kate.

Kate’s outfit for the opening ceremony was by a designer we’ve all been hoping that Kate would wear. This was a truly breathtaking Christopher Kane custom-made coat-dress in silk satin, in the most beautiful ice blue shade. This was a straight fitting design, with a neat fitted belt and long sleeves. I totally loved this and don’t think that Kate could’ve made a better choice – a piece of bespoke couture from one of Britain’s hottest designers on what proved to be the most amazing night in recent memory.

With more Kate appearances expected throughout the games – we can look forward to many more outfits to savour. I can’t wait!
