Leggings: The true must-have for new moms that never go out of style. You can read My Leggings Philosophy HERE, but in this post I'll show you how and why these are a chic mom closet staple. Not only are they comfortable, they can be worn for any occasion, any season, day or night, at home or out and about.
We all know that black is a must. In fact, you probably have a pair of black leggings already because that's how classic they are. But it's time to update your favorite black ones to a black tux pair! My personal favorite of all the leggings in the world are black tux ones because they give you a polished look while remaining totally comfy. I adore these super chic David Lerner black tuxedo leggings with vegan leather that are totally machine washable! Wear with a nursing tank and sweater around the house and swap out the tank for a crisp white button up and the sweater for a structured jacket for a lunch date or the office.
Show off your wild side in style and comfort with a little classy leopard! Don't worry, you won't look like you belong in a Katy Perry music video– trust me. However, a little animal print is a quick and easy way to create chic contrast with solid colors. Niki Biki's leopard print leggings are 100% machine washable, which is great for us busy mamas, and the price is unbeatable. It's a great high-to-low piece that can be paired with tunics and flats for a casual look or a colorblock blouse and pumps for a more sophisticated ensemble.
Although typically referred to as "jeggings," I've found that these Goldsign dark denim leggings are more than that. They're actually leggings in disguise! This pair offers the ultimate comfort while giving the look and feel of designer denim from the waist down. No one will ever be able to tell that there's an elastic waist band from the quality of the denim. Since denim is extremely versatile, you can pair it with a mom crop top and cardigan or a tailored blouse and heels.
Faux leather has never been more comfortable than in the form of these ultra chic David Lerner vegan leather leggings! These great fitting leggings are a must-have addition to any closet to stay on trend, keep PETA at bay and to update your favorite sweaters, tees and tunics. Of all the vegan leather leggings out there, these are by far my favorite because they're still comfy AND completely machine washable! Wear with basic long sleeve or short sleeve tops for relaxing days at home or structured jackets and big sweaters out and about town.
Any kind of white pant, denim or twill, can be finicky post baby. But Annie Griffin's sleek white ponte pant leggings are comfy enough to make you feel good and chic enough to make you look even better! In the fashion era of 2014, white has become a seasonless color that's on trend. I love this pair because the ponte fabric is substantial enough to give the coverage every mama wants. That said, don't wear bright red or hot pink undies with these, (nude should always be the go-to with whites). I'd also suggest going a size up if there's any question. Although it's not an elastic waist pant, the wide waist band is comfortable, the ponte has a lovely stretch quality and you really do feel like you're in leggings. Pack these for vacation and wear with a tunic during the day then swap it for a fun blouse at night.
