Found: All the Winter Outfits With Leggings

All we want in an outfit come wintertime is something that's comfortable and warm. Jeans, though a great choice, can feel so cold and rough against our skin. That's why this year, we're swapping our bottoms for cozy, stretchy leggings all season long, because, as it turns out, the athletic pants are actually far more versatile than you'd think. Sure, you can wear them to the gym, but they also make for a great winter looks—just take the below winter outfits with leggings as proof.

You can wear leggings with everything in your closet, from the obvious pairing of leggings-and-sweatshirts (or oversize knits) to the less common leggings-with-heels situation. Regardless of how you wear them throughout the cold-weather season, one thing's for certain: You'll be able to move with ease, without the fear of an icy metal button stinging your skin. (We love you, jeans, but it's true.) Ready to slip into a pair of leggings? Read on to see our favorite winter leggings outfits, and then shop the key piece.
