The concept of wearing sports leggings to work is a highly-debated topic. Sports leggings are amazingly comfortable and can be worn in a way that they blend seamlessly into a professional outfit. But if you are careless in your approach, your sports leggings may make you look like you forgot to dress for work, or you are on the way to the gym. With a few key step, there are several ways to make your outfit business-ready.
Below, see some outfit ideas you can steal to wear your leggings out of the house.
Wear long shirts or sweaters that go past your bottom. This is one of the most important parts about wearing yoga pants to work and the key to an appropriate outfit. Wearing longer tops will ensure you look professional and work-appropriate.
Pair it with a black coat. If you have leggings that stand out on their own, keep the rest of the outfit pretty minimal.
Keep all logos hidden. To make sure your look remains professional, you don't want people to be able to see the logos on your yoga pants. Logos, as well as any colorful side stripes, give off an athletic vibe that doesn't fit in the office.
Pair with a Long Coat. To successfully pull off wearing yoga pants to work, you need to wear stylish Long tops that will balance out your pants. Try to create outfits that look professional while still being comfortable. Throw on some sneakers for a more laid-back look.
Dress in layers to make your outfit look put-together. Layering is the key to creating great work outfits out of yoga pants. Start with a base layer of a shirt, and then add on a sweater, blazer, or jacket. You can even add a scarf or long socks to your outfit. The longer the jacket and layers, the more you're able to minimize the fact you're wearing leggings.
