Nautical, yet girly
Work a pair of basic navy leggings for a brunch date with your besties. How, you ask? It’s easy. All you need is a cute-girl dress! Style it up by cinching the dress with a contrast broad belt. You could also opt for a slim chain waist belt if elasticised ones make that lunch hard to stomach! Complete the look with a pair of shiny ballet flats and you’ve given your leggings a twist of femininity.
Beauty tip: For the day just spray on some Sea Salt Spray from Toni & Guy to get that messy beach hair look.
Think these don’t make the cut to your work wear closet? We’d love to prove you wrong on this one! Pick a pair of opaque leggings in a colour of your choice. A bright yellow contrasting jacket over a ditsy cloudy-blue blouse does the trick to make your leggings go from ‘ugh’ to super stylish. Don’t forget to strap on some killer heels for a tough edge.
Beauty Tip: Whether day or night, you can never go wrong with the heavy kohled eye look. We suggest the Lakmé Eyeconic in black that will give you a smudge-free wear through a long work day.
Lunch with the besties
Move over long tees and boring tunics! There’s more than one way to hide your derriere. We’re talking layering, ladies! Give your frumpy oversized cardi an edgy, urban twist. Pair this with your denim crop top and leggings and add a funky graphic scarf and a cool coin ring to finish your look. Strut in tall pumps or slip-me-on-quick ballerinas. Wear this look to your next NH7 concert, a day at the mall, or at lunch hour with your colleagues. It’s sophisticated, but still fun. Yes, leggings can be both!
Beauty tip: Red lips always add that extra glam to any outfit. We love the Lakmé Absolute Crème Lipstick in Runway Red.
Finally, don’t even think of leggings as pants! They’re not and never will be. They have their own rules, which can be broken, albeit stylishly.Credits
