Black leggings should be a staple in every woman’s winter wardrobe. Ever since they’ve made a comeback, leggings have evolved way past exercise clothing. Their newfound versatility plus their extreme comfort make them the perfect foundation for any outfit. Invest in some good quality leggings from Victoria’s Secret or American Eagle (pro-tip: for extra thick “leggings,” purchase skinny yoga pants). Then, with the appropriate pairings, you can wear them for almost any occasion.
