When you think about holiday parties, you might automatically think about glitz and glamour courtesy of pretty dresses, stunning shoes, and sparkly accessories. One item that never comes to mind (at least not at first) is leggings. Sure, maybe they make a brief cameo in the moments before you head out to the party, when you're lounging in your room figuring what to wear, or after your holiday party when you're already taking off all your makeup. Regardless, one thing we know for sure is that somehow leggings are never a part of your actual party outfit. This year though, it's time to change that. It’s time leggings join the party—literally.
