Ages ago—like four and a half years, to be precise—my mom bought me these leggings in a black and white print for Christmas and I have hardly worn them since.
It’s not even that I don’t like them—the leggings are both comfortable and opaque—but I am the sort of person who finds it difficult to think of leggings as actual pants. No shade on those who like wearing them that way, but I just personally don’t. So for the longest time, I was fixated on the idea that if I could just find the perfect sweater dress to go with them, all would be well. But there is no perfect sweater dress and these leggings aren’t getting any younger.
So I decided it was finally time to face this personal style challenge head on and raid my own closet to see what I could come up with. It took a couple of tries, but I think I finally found two—only two—possible outfits.
The first pairs the leggings with my favourite black tank top and my sheer silk blouse, left unbuttoned.
The second outfit pairs them with a shiny blue top I’ve had for a long time and my black velvet kimono.
For both outfits, I wore my black booties and a necklace I got from Warehouse One.
I like the first outfit the best but, honestly, have no idea where I’d wear either.
What do you think of the outfit combinations? Any ideas of where I’d wear this?
