As I spent time scrolling through my Saved folder on Instagram, I noticed a pattern. Yes, many of the looks I noted featured leggings as the key piece. It makes perfect sense given that the fashion crowd has been turning to leggings as a go-to elevated basic over the seasons. 

Below, I’m sharing the outfits that I think are particularly chic and showcase leggings styled in a forward way. You’ll notice a smattering of ensembles that run the gamut. This includes everything from more dressed-up looks with pieces like a tailored blazer and boots to casual ensembles with a moto jacket and sneakers.
