See? Even Celebrities Live in Leggings—9 Easy Outfits I'm Copying ASAP

Leggings, once relegated to gym workouts, have now found their way into the everyday regalia of A-list celebrities who seem to be wearing them on rotation—just like the rest of us are—now that temperatures have started to take a downturn. From Elsa Hosk to Emily Ratajkowski, lately, the stars are turning the athleisure staple into a versatile fashion statement that effortlessly transitions from cosy loungewear to chic street style.

Picture Kendall Jenner striding confidently in leggings paired with heels, a leather jacket and a classic roll-neck—a look that could easily be mistaken for a runway moment during her coffee run. Laura Harrier? She's blending luxury pieces such as wool maxi coats and minimalistic leather boots with leggings for a high-low look that exudes sophistication (and apparently works for the airport, too!). Rosie Huntington-Whiteley? She's mastering the art of casual cool, pairing her leather leggings with relaxed knitwear like it's second nature. And then there's Zoë Kravitz, who manages to make leggings look like couture with sunnies and a dramatic top. Who needs jeans anyway?

With nine celebrities setting the trend, leggings offer a blend of comfort and versatility, making them the ultimate wardrobe chameleon. Whether you're running errands or planning on elevating them for an evening out, these celebrity leggings outfits will help you unlock the limitless potential of leggings in your own wardrobe.

Style Notes: Leggings on the red carpet are a rarity but if anyone can pull them off in such a way, it's Zoë Kravitz. Her top gives her shiny leggings instant polish, and finishing with some shades won't hurt matters in the cool department either.

Style Notes: If Hailey Bieber wears something, I usually want to copy it. This time, she's convinced me I do in fact need a pair of flare leggings, which she expertly toughens up with a roomy leather biker.
