How To: Style Your Leggings 3 Ways

It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with our leggings. Why? Because not only are they ultra comfortable, but also super versatile. We asked Allexis, the blogger behind Life of a Coy Fish, to show us how she styles our Printed Legging and the results couldn’t be cuter.

Meet Allexis: 
Hi, I’m Allexis, an adventurous, book-loving, running addict, fashion obsessed, 22 year-old and the blogger behind Life of a Coy Fish. The inspiration behind the three looks I styled with Aerie’s fab Printed Legging was simple. I wanted to create three easy looks to fit all different kinds of occasions to show that leggings don’t just have to be a lounge wear item!

What inspired Allexis’ looks:
The first look is all about a stylish yet casual way to wear leggings for a night out exploring the town! The key is to add more dressed up details like a leather jacket while adding color & texture with a denim top and bright accessories like these gold slip-ons and pink beanie!

The next look is all about those lazy days off spent running errands or for those days when we’re rushing. The key to this look is simplicity and really allowing the cute print of the leggings to do all of the work! Just add a soft colored sweater, minimal accessories, cute/simple crossbody, and some glittery slip-ons and you’re good to go!

For the final look I wanted to stay true to the purpose of leggings and do a stylized yoga look. When it comes to cute yoga outfits, it’s all about the prints. The crazier the better, so these leggings were spot on. Not to mention, that they’re so easy to move through postures in!

How to wear: Socks with Slip Ons

We absolutely love the loafer and sock trend, however this look is not the easiest to master.  If you want to step up your style game and be on point with fall’s latest trends, then you must try this look! The key to rocking socks and shoes is pairing a simple loafer with a knit cotton sock, that’s right, a knit cotton sock. Don’t forget those three words! Dress socks and athletic socks will not work!  So no matter if you have classic #AEOSTYLE or go for an edgier look, this season, a pop of pattern is the perfect way to incorporate your colorful side without going overboard. Check out two ways in which you can incorporate cozy knit socks into your look below.
