Back To Basics Part 2: Ways To Style Black Leggings

Hii Girls!

I hope you all are doing well!

So, I’m back with part 2 of the Back To Basics series. Here, I talk about very basic pieces and share ideas on how can you style them. You can check out part 1 of this series by clicking here.

Today, I’m gonna be talking about how you guys can style black leggings in different ways. I think all of us have one pair of black leggings and in case you don’t have them, please buy one because they are definitely a wardrobe staple. They are very comfortable and versatile. You can use it for all looks whether Indian, Western, or Indo-western.

Tip: Prefer ankle-length black leggings because it will go with all the 3 looks. Don’t go for churidar leggings, you can’t style them with western.

So, without wasting any time, Let’s quickly get started.

# Outfit 1

The first basic style that you can do is to pair a black legging with a plain black long kurta. I am sure you must have seen many people doing this. The looks it creates is so stylish. You can pair all types of kurta with them, be it Straight line, A-line, Angrakha, Anarkali, etc. It is perfect for office and college. At last, Add some silver jewelry and wear to juttis or mojari to complete the look.

# Outfit 2

This look is for my girls who love wearing dupattas. Pair a legging with plain black kurta with a colorful dupatta. It adds some pop of color to your outfit and makes you look stand out. You can take any dupatta like bandhani, silk, khadi, etc. You can just lay your dupatta across your shoulder and let it fall freely or if you don’t want to worry about your dupatta falling off your shoulders, then just drape it around your neck and tie a belt above your waist. It looks super smart. Lastly, add some lipstick that matches the print of your dupatta to complete the look.

# Outfit 3

For the third look, you can pair a black legging with a plain black long Kurti, but with the addition of a printed shrug to it. What a printed shrug does is that it brings jazz to your plain outfit and makes you look put together in an instant. I think this look is perfect for some small celebrations or festivals. Keep your makeup minimal, layer some neckpiece, and you are good to go.

Ignore the color of the suit and pant style, just for the reference of a shrug.
This is the closest I could get to show you! Only to show you how shrug looks with the leggings and Kurti. I hope it works well for you.

# Outfit 4

The next look is also related to a kurta, but this time, pair black leggings with a short thigh length kurta. Why am I saying thigh length? Because if you wear Kurti above the hip, then you have to wear jeans or jeggings. Hip-length Kurti doesn’t look good with leggings. You can choose any color in Kurti but bright colors look more beautiful with it. Lastly, carry a bag and add some lipstick to enhance the look.

# Outfit 5

Pair your plain boring leggings with a long t-shirt and throw a denim jacket onto it. Along with it, a cool bag and a good pair of sneakers can uplift your look. Also, keep your makeup simple, and don’t forget to add a watch. I think this look is perfect for traveling because it’s very comfortable yet smart.

# Outfit 6

We have come to our 2nd last outfit! You can pair a black legging with a long shirt which is above knee or knee-length. You can wear this outfit for a brunch. I think it’s a perfect mix of comfort and style. You can go for a check shirt as well as denim. For footwear, you can wear flip flops, shoes or mules. Don’t forget to add a nice hoop with it. It will help you to look more put together.

# Outfit 7

Last but not the least, pair a black legging with a sweatshirt. Just pair it with white sneakers, it looks super chic. A loose t-shirt and a fitted legging create balance to the outfit. Tie your hair into a bun, add sunglasses, and wear a fanny pack with it. It looks very cool.

That’s it guys for today! I hope you liked it. Do let me know in the comment section below that which one is your favorite outfit and how do you style black leggings. I will come back with more such styling ideas.
