Headed home for the holidays? Not without a suitcase full of leggings you're not. We love leggings for their comfort factor, which is key when it comes to working out and outfit-planning this time of year (unless you're a heels-at-the-airport kind of girl). And thanks to JoyLab, Target's chic new activewear brand, we've finally found leggings stylish enough to wear beyond spin class. Think modern prints and on-trend colors with unique stitching and super-flattering waistbands (hello, extra slice of pumpkin pie).
To help inspire the outfits you'll be squeezing into your carry-on, we had to share the street-ready looks we styled with the upcoming holidays in mind. These effortlessly chic legging looks will have you covered for practically any occasion, whether you're hopping on a flight or playing tourist with visiting relatives. Want to see the fresh styles from JoyLab? Three fun looks from the new line, coming right up.
For an Endless Day of Traveling
Yes, airport dining has become a culinary experience in many larger cities as of late, but no one really loves spending the day dealing with TSA and baggage claim. Since traveling is an inevitable component of many people's holiday plans, it's best to embrace the situation in style. These cool textured leggings should do the trick—is there anything more comfortable to wear on a flight?
For the winter months, we're replacing our favorite tee with this cozy JoyLab sweatshirt that's perfect for chilly airports, gyms, and early morning walks.
When traveling, we're big fans of bundling up in quite a few layers. Not only do airplanes have the reputation for unpredictable chilly/sweaty temps, but wearing your heaviest coat saves plenty of room in your luggage and brings you one step closer to the no-checked-baggage dream.
For a Pre-Workout Shopping Spree
When your girlfriends call you to spend the day shopping for holiday gifts, you say yes and put on this outfit. Just because you have plans to hit up a cycling class that evening doesn't mean you have to bring a change of clothes with you.
This matching camouflage set is so chic and more than comfortable enough for tackling the mall, especially when paired with a cozy black zip-up sweatshirt. Shopping is a sport, okay?
Metallic sneakers make the gray tones in these leggings really pop. Just throw them in your oversize tote before heading into class (if there's room after all of the shopping you did).
For a Day Dedicated Entirely to Family TIme
Spending the day scoping out that new museum your mom won't stop talking about, followed by checking out the local flea market and inevitably a last-minute errand before dinner? A day spent running around town with your family requires a fashion-meets-function ensemble. You'll want to be comfortable while still looking pulled together, especially if your day is likely to end with a candlelight dinner at your family's favorite spot.
To keep things polished, opt for black leggings like this pair, which features on-trend mesh details stitched down the sides. Top off the look with a printed button-down and a moto jacket to balance out the casual nature of the leggings. FYI, this jacket is from JoyLab too, meaning it's just as practical to wear over your favorite blouse as it is over your sports bra before yoga. A bright bag and patent loafers finish off the casual-cool vibe of this look.
We love a good third piece, so when the air gets crisp at night, just throw on an additional cozy layer over your moto jacket. Not only is doubled-up outerwear super on trend, but the leopard-print topper dresses up the leggings even more for an evening affair.
