We love a pair of leggings. They’re easy to wear, comfortable and perfect for every day. But it can be easy to get stuck in of a bit of a style rut. Wearing the same basic black leggings day in, day out? Bor-ing. And crazy, because there are so many great options out there.

The Kardashian sisters are big fans of leggings – and for good reason. They’re all well known for having incredible curves, and that’s something they often highlight with skin-tight bottoms. But your name doesn’t have to begin with K to follow their lead. There are a multitude of ways to style leggings to showcase your figure in the most flattering manner. Here’s our guide to getting the most out of your wardrobe staple…

1. Release Your Inner Animal

Give up your black leggings in favour of a pair of fierce leopard-print leggings instead. Loud, brash and oh-so-sassy, animal-print leggings look fab dressed up with stacked heels or down with trainers and a simple denim shirt. Avoid multicoloured spots and go for classic black and beige for a chicer look.

2. Check It Out

Fashion’s obsession with all things grunge isn’t going away any time soon. Plaid and checked leggings are a brilliant way to channel ’90s chic for autumn. Medium and smaller-sized checks work better on curvy legs. Team with a giant chunky knit for real throwback vibes. The large jumper will also help balance out proportions, slimming your bottom half.

3. Leather Legs

For a full-on rock chick look, why not break out the leather-look leggings? Pick up a pair with a thick, wide waistband to cinch and pull in. These look hot worn with a slinky cami and strappy heels, and they’re much more comfortable/less expensive than real leather trousers. If you’d rather go for subtle accents, opt for a legging with leather-look panels running down the sides.

4. Sporty Chic

Athleisure is a huge trend for autumn and what better way to work it than with a pair of brand spanking new sports leggings? Hop on the return of the logo bandwagon with a pair of sports-branded ones. Thick graphics along the length of the sides slims and flatters. Wear with chunky trainers and lots of jewellery. If you’re hitting the gym, go for a bright fun look and work those curves.

5. Subtle Pattern

Sheer panels are a great way to make leggings sexy. Opt for a pair of sheer-panelled leggings with well-placed mesh. Side panels placed diagonally going down the legs are super flattering for voluptuous pins. If you prefer your leggings opaque, choose a pattern in a different shade of the same colour for added interest.

6. Earn Your Stripes

With striped leggings, try a solid colour, preferably in a darker primary shade like blue or red, with dark stripes along the sides of the legs. If you’re a fan of classic black try a brighter striped highlight to streamline and smooth legs.

7. Travel In Style

Models such as Gigi and Bella Hadid are big fans of a sporty travel legging. They particularly love wearing them to and from the airport, often with day boots and a smart coat.

If you’re travelling in cooler weather, a thigh-length tailored jacket is a great cover-up for leggings as it creates a wonderfully slimming triangular shape. Chelsea boots also help dress up leggings without the need for heels, while sandals mean you can step straight off the plane into winter sun. Plus, how comfy are leggings to travel in? Dreamy.

Plush velvet is the ideal winter texture and looks suitably grunge when worn in legging form. Choose darker shades for your velvet leggings such as rich ruby, emerald, navy and damson for a trimming effect.

Top Tips

Always test the fabric. Stretch it out using your hands and hold it up to the light. Accidentally sheer leggings can spell disaster on a fuller figure. It’s worth spending a little more to ensure the fabric is high quality. As well as protecting modesty, a luxe pair of leggings will keep their shape for longer.

Double check the waistband height. Crotch-grazing waistbands flatter no one. Go high and enjoy the benefits. Muffin tops be gone! If you want added bum-lifting, thigh-slimming magic, invest in a pair of leggings with secret control panels – they look like plain black leggings but work wonders.

Leggings covered with garish prints only look good on toddlers. Always go for a subtle pattern. Likewise don’t do novelty leggings. Anything with Donald Duck or SpongeBob SquarePants prints is definitely for kids.

A pair of chunky wool socks worn with stompy boots look fab with leggings. Throw on an oversized flannel shirt for extra ’90s points.
