Outfit of the Day #6- These leggings and I are having a moment…

The other day, I needed to head out to do a couple of quick errands, so I grabbed my basic black leggings and threw on a nerdy shirt and ran out the door.  Inspiration struck.  I decided to do a piece on how to style the basic black legging and freshen up your nerdy t-shirt collection at the same time.  Here are a couple ideas for you:

As you can see, I just paired the leggings with a favorite t-shirt and tall boots.  You can mix this up by wearing a boot in a different color that compliments the colors in the t-shirt as well.  Another thing you can do, is to wear a leather jacket to complete the look and give it another pop of color, like these pictures show:

As you can see from the picture above, adding the brown leather jacket really gives it an everyday cosplay or bounding feel to it.  Because Cap is never without a great brown leather jacket when he’s not in uniform.

You’ll notice that all these t-shirts are regular ‘ol nerdy t-shirts.  They aren’t particularly long or tunic-like.  That is because I feel that leggings are totally pants and should be worn that way.  Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the slimness of the legging paired with something more voluminous on top.  Creates a nice balance, but I want to show you that you can be body-confident.  Wear leggings this way too. I think you’ll be surprised at how elongating this look can be.  Show ’em what you’ve got, I say!

Here are some more looks to give you ideas.  This is a great way to freshen up your look without having to go shopping.  You have at least one of each of these types of pieces in your closet right now.  Take advantage of the tall boot weather and send us some pics of what you come up with!  Scout and I want to see!  Shopping guides are below.
