What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word leggings? Likely, you associate the casual, comfy bottoms with go-to home or gym wear, which is definitely not wrong. But, in recent years, the fitted, stretchy bottoms have become a serious street style staple, as well, and working them into your everyday look without appearing too underdressed is actually very simple.
