Utilize your closet to its fullest potential by taking spring tunics and dresses and wearing them over leggings! Leggings aren’t boring skin tight pant like things that you wear to the gym or your grandma wore, but a fun way to extend key pieces in your closet. This is anther trend that’s an '80s flashback. The trendy and convenient leggings come in all colors and textures-- perfect for adding character to a plain long shirt or to simply amplify your look.

There are all kinds of leggings: lace, bright turquoise, vixen leather or glitzy sequins. Something will surely fit your style. Maybe try stepping outside of your comfort zone and try something different. You can go Flashdance style, or you can step out with some of favorite my leggings picks. Whether you’ve been a leggings person in the past or not, it takes some trial and error to get the look right if you purchase a unique pair... unless you’re Carrie Bradshaw-- she gets away with everything!

Enter the equestrian wild side with these first saucy leggings. These Nightcap Clothing Equestrian Leggings feature a covered elastic waistband and ruched miniskirt overlay that would make Betty Draper from Mad Men a very jealous gal. I love the black leather accents on the tan leggings-- very Ralph Lauren, and we know I love Ralph Lauren. I’ve got nothing but love for these leggings. Pair it with some flat boots and a long riding inspired jacket with accented shoulders, and you will hold the golden fashion slot of the day.

Galloping to the rock and roll side of things, I’d like to showcase the back zipper leggings. These Sauce Back Zip Leggings are hot! I love how they are sexy, but can be toned down with the right dress or an oversized wool sweater. I would recommend wearing these with some pointy patent leather shoes or some round toed heels-- wouldn’t want to cover the zipper in the back! This are the simple gal's leggings with a small, but impressionable upgrade.

Heading to Madonna’s wardrobe, I present these stunning lace leggings. The semi sheer I Heart Parisian Leggings from Only Hearts are sexy and give lace a new wearable side. I mean, you don’t have to cover these up all the way, just cover your booty and a bit below, and let the rest be seen! These are some fun leggings to get wild and creative with. I would wear them with a long tan trench coat and a thick black belt for a chilly evening that requires some major heart stopping style.
