Leggings and sneakers aren't exactly a revolutionary combination, but there are a few ways to style them that make them feel as such. Nobody does this better than celebrities. They somehow always manage to step out in looks that make this classic combination feel totally fresh. You can probably attribute it to spending so much time around the top celebrity stylists. All that time spent around the best talent means you're bound to pick up a few tricks that can be applied to off-duty looks, such as leggings and sneakers. From Kaia Gerber's simple sock idea to Margot Robbie's statement coat trick, below I've highlighted the coolest celebrity legging-and-sneaker outfits we should all try in 2020.
On Kaia Gerber: Chanel bag; Adidas Alexander Wang sneakers
Kaia Gerber turned her classic sweatshirts, leggings, and sneakers into something unique with the simple addition of high socks. Pulling her gray socks over her leggings feels retro yet modern at the same time, and makes her outfit significantly more interesting. This easy styling trick is one we can all repeat since we probably have a similar pair of socks collecting dust in our dressers right now.
Zella leggings have a cult following for a reason.

Margot Robbie turned her basic sports bra, leggings, and sneakers into an outfit that's anything but by adding a cool statement coat on top. The mix of leopard and plaid prints on this R13 coat (which is sadly sold out now) makes her leggings outfit feel innovative. Re-create this look by throwing on your favorite printed coat before you head out the door in your next legging look.
I own these and can personally vouch for how comfortable they are.

J.Lo took her leggings-and-sneakers outfit to the next level by incorporating unexpected colors and prints into the mix. Between her tie-dye sweatshirt, white leggings, and coral sneakers, this outfit is nowhere near basic.
This pastel tie-dye pattern is so pretty.
On Shanina Shaik: Converse sneakers; Gigi Studios Jane Sunglasses ($279)
Shanina Shaik's outfit is one I immediately saved when I saw it. Her addition of an overisize leather blazer couldn't be cooler or feel more 2020. I'll be wearing this look to the airport for my next trip for sure.
This feels so '90s, and so cool.

On Hailey Bieber: Ray-Ban sunglasses
Hailey Bieber is always turning out cool leggings outfits, but this one is my new favorite for winter. An oversize hoodie topped with a camel coat makes her leggings and sneakers look elevated and expensive instantly. This is one outfit I would actually be proud to run around in before or after a workout.
