As I spent time scrolling through my Saved folder on Instagram, I noticed a pattern. Yes, many of the looks I noted featured leggings as the key piece. It makes perfect sense given that the fashion crowd has been turning to leggings as a go-to elevated basic over the seasons. 

Below, I’m sharing the outfits that I think are particularly chic and showcase leggings styled in a forward way. You’ll notice a smattering of ensembles that run the gamut. This includes everything from more dressed-up looks with pieces like a tailored blazer and boots to casual ensembles with a moto jacket and sneakers.

This layered look is easy yet feels high-concept with the cardigan-and-tee combo underneath the longline jacket. The pair of leggings and booties pairing is also to note.

Talk about a chic ensemble with the of-the-moment oversize leather jacket, half-zip sweater, leggings, and chic knee-high boots.

A blazer brings polish to any look, and the sweater tied around the shoulders adds a forward twist.

Need a cool, casual look? Style your leggings with a hoodie and a relaxed puffer with those trusty Uggs.

A moto jacket is no-fail and looks fantastic with everything—including these split-hem leggings.
