5 Ways to Wear Leggings on NYE

It's absolutely no secret that leggings reigned supreme as one of the must-haves among the cool-girl set in 2017. Fashion A-listers like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Miranda Kerr, and Olivia Palermo all stepped out in a variety of cool and forward ensembles featuring the stretchy pants. While we've seen leggings appear in night-out looks and weekend getups throughout the year, we haven't considered them for more formal occasions like a New Year's Eve soirée, for example. But believe it or not, it's actually incredibly easy to pull off leggings for NYE. Sure, they're traditionally a casual item, but if you style them correctly, you can easily master that coveted comfortable yet chic vibe.

A statement coat instantly ties a neutral ensemble together. Go for a lighter jacket style if you're wanting to keep your topper on inside your party, or follow Olivia's lead and choose a heavier style if you just need something to keep you toasty (and chic) as you're jetting from party to party.
