Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a good start. I’ve been living in loungewear over the past couple of months, but even before turning sweatpants into everyday outfits, I would wear leggings different ways. Leggings are comfortable, easy to style, great for travel or home life, and overall extremely versatile.
There’s different types of leggings that you can wear and style! I tend to gravitate toward black faux faux leather leggings, but there’s tons of different styles on the market. For instance, a few of my favorites are high waisted basic black leggings, leopard leggings, and faux leather leggings. So I’ll dive into my favorites below!

I tend to steer towards black leggings, since they tend to be the most versatile. My absolute favorite black leggings are the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings (exclusive discount code is MELISSAXSPANX for 10% off their site).. The second runner up are the Grace and Lace black leggings. They’re a fantastic affordable dupe – and the ones I’m wearing in my photos! I’m a size XS in both for reference and I’m 5’4″ tall.

Legging Outfit 2: Street Style Casual
This edgy street style look is easily one of my favorites! I threw on my Spanx faux leather leggings with a knotted graphic t-shirt and combat boots. Finish the look with a denim jacket to dress it down. Trade the denim jacket for black leather jacket to dress it up for a casual dinner look. The felt hat is Vici (discount code MELISSA20 for 20% off and Vici post HERE).
Legging Outfit 3: Casual Loungewear or Travel Outfit
I actually wore this exact outfit traveling home from Los Angeles in January! Pants are overrated when traveling, and since we’ve all been working from home this has been the perfect casual leggings outfit.
An oversized long sweater and leggings are an easy look to throw together. I paired this casual black leggings outfit with a pop of leopard print sneakers.
Legging Outfit 4: Night Out Look
Grab a pair of black faux leather leggings, a cropped tank, plus a printed long sleeve longer cardigan for a more edgy look! Throw on a cute felt hat with a bright color bag and some black booties to finish the look.
I love the look of wearing a longer cardigan with a cropped tank and black leggings. It’s sleek and edgy at the same time! You can easily wear this out and still be comfortable.
