Leggings have to win the prize for the single easiest to wear item of clothing in your wardrobe. There’s no occasion that the humble legging can’t rise to – and what’s even better is that leggings are cheap and comfortable to boot! You can pick up leggings for under a tenner at George at ASDA – leaving you with more left over for the rest of your outfit! Here’s how to wear them:

Casual Cool

The new generation of patterned leggings offer a fresh, cool slant on a classic. For a relaxed, effortlessly cool look wear them with high tops and either a daring loose fit crop top or an oversized tee – 80’s style! Choose from a wide range of trendy patterned leggings including tie dye, florals, animal print, Aztec print and graphics. At £8 a pair from George at ASDA, you can afford to stock up on patterned leggings for every day of the week!

Evening Chic

Adding a pair of leggings to your evening outfit can make even the most daring dresses instantly more wearable. And if you’re not a dressy dress type of girl, a stylish pair of animal print or wet look leggings with an embellished tunic or sheer blouse makes for a comfortable and sexy after dark look. Just add heeled boots and an envelope clutch.

Lounging Around

Forget baggy pj’s for slobbing around the house in. Leggings are just as comfortable, and will look stylish in case of any unexpected visitors. An oversized t-shirt or hoody are all that you need to add for relaxed lounging around at home. Pizza and ice cream optional!

Office Style

While it might be easy to stick to your office uniform of formal trousers and a classic shirt, there’s no reason why you can’t mix things up a bit with leggings. Black leggings look great with an oversized blazer and pumps. Just make sure that you choose thick leggings in a comfortable size – over exposed rear views are not appropriate office attire! If in doubt, choose the size up.

If leggings feel a little too risqué for the boardroom, choose thicker jeggings instead. With slightly more structure, often including pockets, the jegging is a cross between a legging and jeans, and in classic black makes an easy office option. You can even tuck a sheer blouse or shirt into a jegging, for a more structured look.

Work It Out

Branded exercise wear can be expensive, but comfy leggings can do the job just as well. At under £10 a pair, you can wear them with a simple vest top or t-shirt, whether working out in the gym or hitting an exercise class. Spend the time and extra money on getting a quality pair of well-fitting trainers instead. Having the correct footwear for your choice of workout is important, particularly if you like high impact sports such as running or aerobics.

There’s a pair of leggings for every outfit and occasion. Cheap, comfortable and available in a wide variety of styles, stock up on wear-anywhere leggings for easy, everyday style.
