Leggings are not sweat pants! It’s no longer the idea that leggings are for around the house or at the gym. We’re wearing legging to nightclubs and events. Just a few simple changes to your outfit will make you look like your ready for a night out.

Think about your top

For events like weddings or work events, try a nice blouse in black or white. For a evening look, try a sleeveless top. Or a top that you would normally wear with a skirt.

Wear leggings with high heels

High heels dress up any outfit! Leave the tennis shoes at home and give yourself a bit of a lift. If your really tall and you don’t want the lift, try boots to dress up leggings.

Wear boots with leggings

Boots and leggings are like the best friends of fashion. The color of the leggings can make your boots pop (or vice versa) and both items are fall and winter staples.

Find great legging patterns

Don’t think for a second your stuck with black leggings. Color them up. SqueakyChimp has an abundance of different designer legging from colorful & retro to classic pinstripe patterns. Speaking of pinstripe leggings, pinstripe are a classic for dressing up.

Jewellery with leggings outfit

Bling it up a little bit. How about a pair of glittering earnings or a necklace. Anything shiny will do!

What bag to wear with your outfit

Another way to make your leggings outfit look dressier is to add a trendy bag. This shows that you’re out on the town with a purpose, not just running last-minute errands. So if your going out on the town, leave the backpack at home and find a beautiful bag or hand purse.

Don’t follow everyone else’s fashion

People can often be like herds of cattle. What starts on the catwalk and duplicated and see on every girl on the street. Personally I never wear what is duplicated. I like to make my own style. I follow simple fashion rules… but I personally prefer to wear something unique. There is nothing worse then seeing the same outfit on every girl in the street. Don’t be afraid to be different! If you love it and people think your crazy for wearing it… 1 month later those same people who said you were crazy will be wearing it too.

When I designed leggings by SqueakyChimp, I wanted leggings that I wouldn’t find anywhere else. I wanted leggings that I would wear. And if someone tells you “I would never be able to pull off that outfit”… consider it a compliment. They have no vision and they will be wearing a similar outfit in a few months anyways. Be creative!
