First things first, I’d like to profess my love for leggings; honestly, I don’t know how I would have gotten dressed over the past three years without them. Prior to that, I’d never really have worn them out of the house save from going to the gym or dashing out for a coffee. Now, however, I wear them whilst working, heading to the shops and meeting my friends for brunch on the weekend; they’re a staple in my wardrobe and always will be. Still, I believe that you can have too much of a good thing, and I worry that I’ll tire of leggings at the rate I’m currently wearing them. The solution? To find other items I can wear just as easily and, crucially, that are as comfortable as leggings.
Pyjamas might seem like the closest relative to leggings, but I think working from home in my star-print flannels five days a week could become an unhealthy habit. Instead, I’ve been looking for sleek alternatives to leggings that I can pull on with my basics and feel put-together in. And would you believe I found eight pieces that fit those criteria? I know, even I was impressed with myself.
Scroll on to see eight solutions for the what-to-wear-instead-of-leggings quandary I, and I’m sure many of you, currently find myself in.
