The holidays are all about spending time with family, eating and drinking way too much, and of course, being cozy and comfortable (but still cute) at all times. To me, the epitome of comfort is leggings; but if you’re not into plain old, boring, black leggings for the holidays, we’ve rounded up some silly Christmas leggings, fancy leggings, food baby leggings (we’ll explain), and leggings that don’t look like leggings (we’ll also explain) you can wear to all your holiday events this season.
Silly Christmas Leggings
Take your Christmas sweater party outfit to a whole other level with these bad boys. In my opinion, when it comes to these parties, the sillier, the better; so why not pair your sweater with a pair of fun and funny leggings too? Anything goes: snowmen, Santa Claus, reindeer, and anything else that gives off those holiday vibes. How about those Santa pants?
I’ve been known to rock some pretty crazy leggings, more specifically, sequin and metallic. My motto is that just because something is made to be comfortable doesn’t mean it can’t be fashionable as well. If you’re headed to a holiday party that’s a little more on the formal side but you still want to get away with wearing something comfortable, pair these fancy leggings with your favourite oversized sweater. You can get away with wearing something a little more plain on top because your pants are so EXTRA, which makes putting together an outfit for the holidays even easier.
Food Baby Leggings
Holiday gatherings inevitably involve eating copious amounts of food; and eating copious amounts of food inevitably leads to a little belly bloat (AKA the food baby.) Pick up a pair (or six) of leggings with a wide waistband to keep you sucked-in and tight all holiday season long, so you can eat extra dessert without feeling guilty. Entire cheesecake, here I come.
Leggings That Don’t Look Like Leggings
Leggings that don’t look like leggings are another one of my favorite secret weapons (along with totally blinged out leggings). Jeggings (jean leggings) are a great way to look more dressed up and put together than you actually are. Jeggings are as comfortable as leggings but they look like jeans, so you’re able to get the best of both worlds. The best thing about jeggings is that you can wear whatever you want on top because of the buttons and pockets on them that make them look more like real pants and not full-on leggings.
If you’re less into Christmas leggings and more into traditional tights, we’ve also rounded up some looks for you, because tights don’t have to be boring either. Again, I like to pair tights with my fav oversized sweater or a cute holiday dress.
