Since the early 2000s, leggings have become accepted as bottoms—whereas in the past they were only to be worn under dresses, skirts and tunics—taking the top spot from denim. And we couldn’t be happier that leggings have dethroned denim because these bottoms are truly a girl’s best friend. Because of their versatility when it comes to material, color and texture, leggings can be worn for any occasion.
Plus size leggings make the perfect staple to any weekend wardrobe, which is why we are going to show you which pairs you need from Chic Soul’s plus size boutique and how to style them to reach maximum comfort, while looking cute and confident—no matter what your plans are!
How could you go wrong with a pair of black leggings? You can’t. These leggings may be perfect for any weekend wardrobe because they go with everything. Their simplicity makes these leggings perfect for any occasion, even the office, so you can take your favorite bottoms into the weekdays!
Lazy Days–For the days where you don’t feel like putting a lot of effort into an outfit, but you still want to look put together, opt for a pair of sleek black leggings. You can totally dress them up for brunch with a pair of ankle booties or strappy heels and plus size off the shoulder tops if you decide to get out of the house.
Overtime–If you have a work schedule that requires you to be in the office during the weekend, indulge in black leggings that feel so comfortable you will almost forget you’re at work. Stick to a thicker material so that they aren’t see-through! Pair the leggings with a blazer or cardigan for an office-appropriate look.
Faux Leather Leggings
Faux leather leggings are having a huge moment right now, and we love the way they bring any look to life. These are the perfect leggings to keep in your closet because, depending on how you style them, they could work for many different occasions.
Brunch–For brunch, pair them with a cozy, oversized sweater for a laid back look and some chic sneakers or a pair of ankle booties.
A Night Out–If you want to create a sexy look for a night out on the town, but would rather not wear a dress or skirt, stick to faux leather leggings. This material hugs your curves and naturally gives off a really sexy vibe. Pair the leggings with a crop top or a cropped sweater and a pair of heels.
Athletic Wear Leggings
Workout attire that can easily camouflage itself as regular leggings is key for those of you who like to start your weekend mornings with some Pilates or yoga. Pair your workout leggings with plus size tunics to transform your gym look into something you feel comfortable and confident running errands in.
Yoga Class in the A.M.–If you set your alarm on the weekend to catch that 9:30 a.m. yoga class, we admire you! What better way to get your namaste on than in a cute pair of leggings that work double time to look cute outside the gym.
Running Errands–Weekends are filled with duties we didn’t have time to complete on the weekdays, which is why opting to wear your gym leggings—even if you aren’t hitting the gym—is totally acceptable. You’re still on the move!
If you’re still a denim girl at heart, plus size jeggings will be your new best friend. Jeggings mix all of the properties we love about denim with the stretch and comfort of leggings. These will work for just about any occasion, but they are exceptional for the times where leggings aren’t the most appropriate option.
Jetsetter–If you’re traveling and want a look that can go from airport to sightseeing without having to stop and change at your hotel, try jeggings! You’ll feel comfortable on your flight and confident in your outfit when you leave the airport.
Checking Tasks Off Your To-Do List–When you look good, you feel good. And studies show that if you are wearing an outfit you feel comfortable and confident in, you will be more productive. So, if you have a lot of tasks to accomplish this weekend, throw on some jeggings and a cute top for a little extra motivation.
Whether you plan on having a highly productive weekend or indulging in some well-deserved “me time,” these leggings will have you looking fierce and feeling comfortable and confident.
