Stylist Tips: How to Jazz Up Your Basic Black Leggings

Post by Lindsay Unick

The workout wardrobe recipe of head-to-toe black is getting a bit stale. Shorter, darker days and big New Year’s resolutions require more inspiring options to pair with your basic black leggings. Yet, fitness’ ever-popular brights aren’t for everyone. Stylist Lindsay stepped in to whip up an Edit full of subtler shades and unique details for all your winter workouts. Spice up your go-to fitness look with her purple-hued picks.

Jazz Up Basic Black Leggings

Icy Lavender

Pantone’s color of the year, Ultra Violet, is popping up everywhere, but I love this softer, frostier shade of purple for winter. It feels fresh and feminine and is a low key way to add color to your look. Pair the longline Moderate Crop Bra with a high-waisted legging for yoga or wear the high-neck Elle Tank for high-impact workouts.

When the weather cools down, it’s time to turn up the heat on your workout. Head to hot yoga or a steamy spin class—it feels like a mini tropical vacation on a rainy or snowy day. The Mesh Bomber Jacket, available in black and white, is both fashion-forward and ventilating for your post-workout cooldown.

Uplifting Graphics

Feel-good graphics are a great way to show a little positive personality and combat the winter blues. The Dave Crewneck Sweater‘s slightly oversized fit and soft sweater knit fabric make this a piece you’ll want to live in all weekend long—not just to and from the gym.

Bye-Bye Basic

Go a step further and swap out your basic black leggings with a statement color or artistic print. Each pair of Sunset Leggings is individually hand-pigmented using a shibori tie-dye technique, so no two are alike. I wear these everywhere from barre class to brunch—they add a subtle boho touch that’s a welcome contrast to more technical pieces. I also love the lavender color trend for bottoms. The Sculpt Leggings look incredible paired with the Moderate Crop Bra and a neutral-colored drapey tank.

Essential Support

It’s so important to have the right support for every activity—it can make or break your workout. Current favorites include the strappy, super-feminine Sierra Bra for low impact activities like yoga and pilates and the Full Force Bra (in purple, of course) for cardio.
