What to Wear: Leggings Edit
We’ve been working from home the past few weeks and, like most of us, we've really been leaning into wearing loungewear.
Pre-quarantine times, we would dream about being able to wear comfy clothes all day, but now that this is reality, we're realizing more than ever how what we wear can impact our mood and how a great outfit can set the tone for our whole day. Between the news, the lack of social interaction, and the general state of the world, it’s very easy to feel low right now. So we thought it could be fun to put together some looks to help boost your spirits centered around our current everyday staple: leggings. Because let’s be real, being comfy is still priority #1.
These outfits are the perfect way to add a little pep to your step, whether you’re on a work call, a Zoom happy hour, or having an in-depth conversation with your dog (we’ve been there). Plus, they’re cute enough to wear when we’re finally able to go outside again, as this situation has made us reconsider our stance on leggings as an acceptable form of pants.
So let’s see how we dressed up our leggings, shall we?
Business on top, party on the bottom
There’s nothing like a great blazer to make you feel like a boss—even when you’re wearing stretchy pants. Stray from typical black and freshen up your look with this springy seafoam green color. Throw on a pair of faux leather leggings, which are the perfect combo of chic and comfy. Add a white bodysuit and a pair of light blue strappy sandals to really accentuate the pastel color palette. Top it all off with a chunky chain necklace for the finishing touch. Then just toss your AirPods and your trusty planner into your Gold Calin and you’re ready to conquer your next Zoom meeting.

All Buttoned Up
The jury may be out on whether it’s called a button-down or a button-up shirt, but if there’s anything we can all agree on, it’s that they are versatile, chic and always look good. We chose this oversized blue version for a relaxed, cool look that still feels polished. Accessorize with a sleek leather watch and these stunning gem and gold earrings. Add a pair of bright white sneakers, throw some Purell in your Olive Calin and you have the perfect classic look for your daily walk around the block.

Blue Jean Baby
Couldn’t get your hands on a tie-dyed lounge set? Us either. But these leggings, dare we say, might be even better? Style with an oversized denim jacket and a graphic tee for a look that says, “I got dressed today, but I’m still not leaving the house.” Add this stunning evil-eye bracelet for a dose of glamour—and a bit of added protection—and slip on a pair of light pink sandals to complete the look. Throw some snacks in your Pink Calin for additional sustenance and you’re ready to hit up your nightly happy hour FaceTime sesh.
