Stylist in Pocket · How To Style Stirrup Leggings




You may have thought the days of rockin’ this throwback style were long gone, but Stirrup leggings are making a major comeback and have officially earned themselves the title of the holy grail of ‘80s-era pant.

Sneaking leggings past HR is no easy feat, but crisp pleats and a trouser-inspired silhouette certainly make the case for this laid-back option. Dress ’em up with a pinstriped tunic and bold collar necklace. An extra dose of polish comes in the form of a bold, boxy blazer that works with your linear blouse to create a cool contrasting look (props, girl). Round out the look with pink suede glove shoes (you can wear your leggings’ straps inside or outside your steppers) and a structured croco bag with endless fancy-lady appeal.

Off duty isn’t all about tees and jeans. Enter your latest weekend uniform: an oversized turtleneck sweater and structured stirrup leggings. A little bit chic and a whole lot laid-back, you’ll be in a prime position to kick back or paint the town red with this dynamite duo on your side. If last-minute plans are your signature, make sure you’re ready for anything with an arsenal of ah-mazing accessories. Our picks? Shimmery drop earrings, a quicksilver mini bag and a statement-making faux fur coat.

When temperature takes a dip, you wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without a trusty pair of tights. When it’s frosty and a simple pair of sheers simply won’t do, enlist the help of stirrup leggings to get you through the night in style. Layer them under a jacquard shift dress, then proceed to pair the winning combo with pearl drop earrings and a set of gilded ankle boots. Opt for a longline coat that will keep you feeling warm and cozy as you pound the pavement and toss a dramatic wine-colored lipstick into a vibrant velvet clutch for safe keeping.
