How to wear leggings for every minute of Christmas, even the parties

The first rule of wearing leggings every day is to make sure you own multiple over-sized tops. And when I say over-sized I mean they must hide your crotch. You know why.

As I write this, I’m on the bus, driving home for Christmas and I’ve just realised I’ve left my leggings at home, despite my enormous bag packed full of I don’t know what. But so convinced am I of their versatility, I’m going to head to Penneys and pick up a pair. (I also forgot to pack underwear. And socks.)

But how do you wear leggings every day and night of the Christmas season and not look like Vicki Pollard? Imagination. Imagine that your leggings were not, until this year, meant for slobbing around. Oh, and exercising. The best way to picture how the leggings will look, look at a picture.

The experts at work:

  • Olivia Palermo


Leggings, a boho top, yellow slippers and you can still look like a Park Avenue Princess.

  • Kate Moss


Just add heels.

  • Gigi Hadid


Has there ever been a more stylish hungover person?

  • Street Style


A long t-shirt and a blazer up the ante


Better still, make sure your leggings have sequins.

The key items to add to your leggings look are high heeled black boots, a chunky jumper and a don’t care attitude. When I get mine, though, I’ll be wearing them with a dressing gown and slippers.

Happy Christmas!
