How I Style Leggings & Tunics + Zoe Lariat Necklace Giveaway

In today's video, I'm sharing how I like to wear leggings to make them look presentable.

It's a mathematical equation for me:

tunic (or dress) + leggings + scarf or statement jewelry + quality shoes = presentable outfit!




Regarding what I'm wearing in the video, the leggings are from Amazon. The tunics are from zulily. The ballet flats and driving shoes are London Sole (French Sole in the UK). The ankle boots are from Aerosoles (purchased a few years ago). The rain boots were purchased from a boutique in Los Angeles many years ago and their label has worn off so I do not know which brand it is... but I believe they were a brand called Dirty Laundry. I often get questions about what camera I use, it's a Canon.

Leggings can be a great choice to wear during the day to maintain an active lifestyle. Styling them with a long top, tunic or dress dresses them up. This is another great option if you are coming out of a work out and want to run errands. Simply throw a tunic over your workout top, slip on some flats or boots and you are suddenly very stylish and ready to go!

I hope you enjoy today's video.

Comment of the Week
Regarding last week's Teatime with Jennifer episode on the Dry Clean Dress, Karolina writes, "Hi Jennifer! My name is Karolina, I’m 22 years old and I’m from Poland. I like so much your sense of humor and I really enjoyed your video! It shows exactly what modern fashion looks like. Actually, it reminded me of a short tale written by Hans Christian Andersen- The Emperor's New Clothes. A vain emperor cared about nothing except fancy and expensive clothes. He wasn’t satisfied with what he already had, so he paid two weavers to make him the most luxurious suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are stupid or incompetent. So obviously nobody dared to question the existence of the Emperor’s new clothes. And what happened? An innocent child in the crowd blurted out that the emperor was wearing nothing at all. His vanity led him to public ridicule. And that’s the point! This Moschino dress, what was the designer’s purpose in creating such an extraordinary piece of clothing? People are afraid to criticize high fashion brands and even desire their costly clothes. Just because they’re famous? Your idea with dry clean dress was brilliant! In this video you acted like the child from Andersen’s story :) You just showed the truth :) Thank you so much for this video! Greetings from Poland! Pozdrowienia z Polski! :)"

Hi Karolina, I enjoyed your comment very much. I enjoyed your correlation between the dry clean dress and The Emperor's New Clothes. Thank you and I hope to visit Poland one day!

Today, I would love to know... how do you like to wear leggings?

I hope you have a wonderful week. See you on Thursday for the Very Merry Christmas Tag.

This is a nice look. What about socks though? We can't go "Princeton" here in winter. Any suggestions?

Summer Smith said...

You look really nice, thank you for the chic example.

Leah Schneck said...

Lovely necklace, thank you for the wonderful video!

Carey said...

Great necklace. It looks like it has gold and silver, which makes the necklace very versatile.

LD Siess said...

So easy, so versatile, so polished! Warm thanks!

Sarah Deeks said...

This is what I wear more days than not! Leggings are great in winter as they are warmer than tights. I often do wear them with socks, but these are hidden under boots.

Now if only every woman in the world could see this video and your equation! Truly, this is the only tasteful way to wear leggings. On several occasions, I've seen women wearing short tops with leggings that are the color of their skin...needless to say, I did a double take every time.

The necklace is pure perfection.

Until this year, I never wore leggings in public--I couldn't bring myself to promote them from exercise/yoga clothes status. People suggested I wear them with dresses/skirts, but why do that when I have perfectly good tights, even wool tights for the cold New England winters?
Now that I surrendered, I found that a pair of thick leggings work well with a couple of tunics in my fall/winter wardrobe. My Boden tunic has a fun print (and a very flattering cut, oh la la!) so I choose a dainty necklace with small earrings. The other tunic is a variation on the classic, crisp white shirt that I wear with a belt and silk scarf. I wear both outfits with a pair of ankle boots that are an homage to Victorian boots, a bit higher than the ones you modeled in your video. I get compliments each time I wear these 2 outfits.

Hi Jennifer,

I read Neil Postman's Amusing ourselves to death! It's such a brilliant book, far ahead of its time! I wonder what he would have said about the current challenges we face viz. easy distractibility due to smart phones, 24*7 TV channels, internet connectivity, celebrity culture etc. it's not easy to be a social critic & I know you receive a lot of flak from some of your readers for the topics you discuss on the blog viz. dressing appropriately in public, cell phone etiquette, adulting etc. But please keep up the good work! We find your social commentary very wise & inspiring! Love!!

Love the length and versatility of this necklace ! Thank You

Anna Wegner said...

I like to wear leggings with tunics or long sweaters. I also wear them with a few shorter dresses, just to keep me modest if I bend over or it's a windy day. Thanks for the video :)

Ladylike said...

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for the delightful outfit inspiration. I am a tights gal myself, but I will wear leggings one day this week to change things up. I will pair them with a black sweater dress, a long black and white necklace, and my favorite wedges. I feel lucky I found a great pair of patent-leather Stuart Weitzman wedges at a consignment store, and they have become my go-to slip-on shoes, like ballet flats. They seem to be indestructible~

Warm best,
Alexandra

Well done. With cold Montana winters I would require socks and likely boots. Great necklace.
