Our editors share 8 adorbs ways to style your leggings

Leggings > sweats


It’s officially day 10098 of quarantine and we’ve finally decided to upgrade our pyjama pants making leggings our next go-to staple. LBH, good leggings are miracle workers that do the most — can we get an amen? They can take you from your yoga mat, to your Zoom meeting, to after-work drinks on your balcony with total ease and comfort, all while making your booty look like you just did 50 squats. We were curious to see how our team members have been rocking their leggings for the past few weeks. Scroll down for some super cute leggings’ ‘fits.

Team COSMO share 8 cute ways to style your WFH leggings

1 Clare Robertson: Fashion Editor

Dressing from head-to-toe this quarantine, our Fashion Editor, Clare, rocks the over-the-pants strappy heels trend with her leggings and a biker jacket for some extra spice. Extra snaps and claps to her for actually wearing a shoe that isn’t fluffy and rhymes with chipper.


2 Cleo Marcopoulos: Fashion Director

The 411 on dressing from the waist up? Pop on a boyfriend blazer over your WFH ‘fit for your Zoom meetings. *Style tip: Roll up the sleeves of your blazer for a more relaxed look.

3 Zipho Ntloko: Beauty Editor

We are a little obsessed with this cropped denim-jacket moment. Denim jacket styled with leggings = a saving grace for when you want to look like you have put in a little effort. ‘Yes, I dressed up today and I even layered my look’. Boom.


4 Michelle Cory: Senior Designer

It’s all about the accessories! If you’re feeling like you’re in a bit of a slum, pop on some earrings or a cute headband. This OTT pearl Alice band  is what dreams are made of. A statement knit is also always a good idea, it requires minimal effort with high reward. leggings_cosmo_style-wfh

5 Sloane Poggenpoel: Project Manager

Athleisure is the way to go. Send your emails from your downward-dog position, we are all about a balanced lifestyle, people!


6 Maria Small-Smith: Production Assistant

Maria dressed up her leggings with a bright oversized blazer, white sneakers and thin ’90s shades. Peace and pout if you know what’s up.


7 Ashleigh Engel: Social Media Manager

Ashleigh paired her leggings with a khaki bomber jacket, a printed headscarf, fishnet socks and killer kicks. Extra points for that mirror selfie and avo cellphone, tho…


8 Amber Barker: Style and Beauty Assistant (AKA, moi)

I was feeling extra-glam today, with a touch of bougie babe energy. I don’t think I would have the courage to rock this look outside of the home but it makes for a cute pic, so why the hell not? I paired my leggings with a little Gucci (sunglasses), a bikini top and mesh dress. (P.S. I’m wearing slippers so I won’t touch on the shoe element, hehe).
