Wearing This Spring Trend Guarantees Your Leggings Look Chic—Just Ask Rosie HW

Whether you wear leggings constantly or have started reaching for the loungewear staple more than you normally do, you're probably on the hunt for some fresh outfit ideas to wear with them. And since the celebrity crowd is providing us with some rather chic outfits with the stretchy pants this spring, we've sourced yet another A+ look to inspire you, this time from the always-chic Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Leave it to her to make leggings look utterly sophisticated and on-trend.

In one of the recent outfit shots on her Instagram, she wore the #1 legging trend right now, split hems, with another spring trend: a utility jacket. We've covered the many iterations on the utility trend before, but it took seeing this genius styling idea to make us realize how clever wearing one with leggings is. She finished off her comfy-cool look with "ugly" sandals (hers are Chanel, naturally) and the whole thing is a major vibe.

I don't know about you, but I was mega inspired to shop for a utility jacket after seeing Rosie's outfit, so I went ahead and found 12 that I really like. Scroll down to see her 'fit and peruse the jackets I recommend if you want get the look.
