Matching you black jacket or grey oversized sweatshirt to your leggings makes the two pieces look like they were always meant to go together, thus elevating the leggings from gym gear to an all-around-awesome wardrobe staple like Madison Beer in West Hollywood.

With pants as tight as they are these days, it’s the tops and bottoms of your leggings that really give them away as fitness/athleisure wear. By showing your waistband with crop tops and tucking your cuffs into booties or high-top sneakers, you’ll have a total statement look. Not that you have to do this. Leggings as pants are nothing to be ashamed of, like Rosie Huntington does while styling Michi.

Lace-up leggings have become a real contender for the coolest athleisure trend. Seen on celebrities like Jennifer Lopez or Hannah Brown, the lace-up detail is something typically seen in ready-to-wear, so it gives the legging more functionality.
