Snowflake Leggings + Utility Jacket.

Snowflakes, you say?

Indeed. We’re in November– November! I can’t believe it. I suppose it’s a good month to debut a pair of snowflake leggings.

The instinct is to style these printed sweater leggings cutesy, but I wanted to toughen them up. Combat boots, wherefore art thou combat boots? A simple white tee and a military-style utility jacket round out the look. Boom! Off to the salon for a trim + dip dye. (Darker ombré on deck for next week’s posts!)

Keep reading for some tips on wearing printed leggings (snowflake and the like).

Don’t shy away from a printed legging; they’re easier to wear than you may think. A few tips:

  • Pick a sweater-type material (over classic flat stretch) to minimize that shiny look when the legging stretches over your thighs, bum, etc.
  • Choose a darker color palette, which is easier to wear + most flattering.
  • If you’re not comfortable going full-stop thighs out, layer a longer tunic/sweater dress over the leggings to get more coverage.
  • Combat boots not your thing? No worries. Grab any ol’ ankle bootie in your closet, a classic ballet flat, or tall flat riding boots. Options are endless.

Happy almost-weekend!

  3. You are too adorable! I love you in the printed leggings. My thighs are unfortunately not my best asset so I definitely can’t ever rock them 🙁 but I shall live vicariously though you!! hehe 🙂

  4. Awesome leggings. I love the rich colors, so perfect for fall and the pattern is so fun! I think you styled them flawlessly with the combat boots and simple white tee. It really makes the legging design stand out!
