Leggings are Pants

Ok, I get it, leggings are pants. I honestly have a really hard time getting on board with this.  As someone with less curves than a ruler I just feel ridiculous in them.  I love a good boyfriend jean, or a pair of flares.  All though I don't wear them as pants, that doesn't mean I am anti-legging.  I have put together a super chic look that still allows you to wear your favorite leggings.  I put these textured leggings under a body con dress, I just scrunched up the dress to make it a little shorter.  I paired this look with a simple cardigan, black tall boots, and delicate accessories.  This look is sophisticated but probably the coziest outfit you will wear all week (like it's fall asleep in class cozy).   Mixing all neutrals and playing with the levels of this look, draws your eyes away from the leggings and allows for an overall clean look.  

Dress - Forever 21
Cardigan - Gap
Leggings - Olive and Oak
Boots - Steve Madden
