No, leggings are most certainly not pants — they're not meant to be worn with tops tucked into them or with shirts that don't cover your rear. Still, that shouldn't stop you from slipping them on and styling them up the right way. That means adding an oversize sweater with a longer hemline, topping them off with a mid-length coat, or using them to layer up a short dress. That doesn't mean replacing your suit bottoms with leggings at the office, adding a dressed-up top and taking them to dinner, or taking your lazy-day legging and t-shirt look off the couch and out on the town. Just so we're all on the same page, we've done the legwork and provided one easy way to wear leggings that's so 2013. Click below to shop!
