How To Rock Leggings Outside The Gym

Five easy ideas to take your leggings to the next level.



Activewear has become increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s no wonder why. Leggings, in particular, are easy to wear, comfortable and versatile. But you don’t only have to wear leggings when you’re working out – they are also ideal if you have a lot of running around to do. Did you know you can dress up your leggings for the office, a lunch date or a party? We show you how to pull off everyone’s favourite loungewear, with five easy looks for any occasion.

LOOK 1: OFFICE CASUAL

Contrary to what it seems like in every gym and mall, not all leggings were created in black. A neutral sand colour pair looks fresh with an oversized white shirt and will keep you comfortable during that long meeting.
