Let’s go ahead and admit that leggings are the most comfortable item in your closet right now. They’ve taken the fashion world by storm and remained relevant since their 2005 comeback into haute couture. The popularity of leggings stems from the fact that they’re not only super comfortable but their versatility makes outfit options endless. This can, however, pose a problem for those of us who get overwhelmed with all the choices! If you’ve found yourself googling “how to wear leggings” or “legging outfits” you know exactly what we’re talking about. While search phrases such as “legging outfits” are widely popular, western legging styles haven’t been explored as much. Not to worry, Pinto Ranch has you covered.
How to Wear Leggings, the Western Way
1. Bohemian Western
Go boho with a bit of western flair! Start with your favorite pair of leggings, try these Center Seam Ponte Leggings, and add a fringe, embroidered, or laser cut style poncho top with classic cowboy boots like the Stallion Full-Quill Ostrich Boots. If you’re feeling extra boho, opt for these fold-down collar Yerba Boots from Freebird by Steven. Tie the look together with a western statement necklace like a super cool Squash Blossom.
2. Western Chic
At Pinto Ranch, we absolutely love the western chic style. Next time you’re looking for a date night outfit or something for that western-themed event, try one of these chic combinations.
Pair your favorite black leggings – we love these riding pant style leggings by Isabel – with a long duster coat that makes a bold statement. Stack long coordinating necklaces in different materials over a solid top like the Vintage Collection Ballet Top to complete the look. Tip: Try sticking to a single color palette with your clothes and use your jewelry to add color.
For a soft, luxe style that is oh-so-chic, layer fur and suede with a fur poncho over a pair of Faux Suede Leggings. Add statement jewelry such as these stunning Mother of Pearl Large Drop Earrings and matching Mother of Pearl Round Ring. Then throw in a pair of tall Old Gringo Mayra Boots, and voila! You’ve got yourself a western chic outfit with comfortable leggings to boot.
3. Classic Western
Don’t be afraid to go classic! Pair a fun Double D Ranch poncho over a denim western snap shirt with the Center Seam Ponte Leggings. For a pop of color and added western style, turquoise jewelry is always a yes. Try the Blue Turquoise Bolo Tie and Kingman Turquoise Cuff .
If you are in the market for a more traditional western style, try the a Fringe Maxi Coat by Scully over leggings with a classic concho belt underneath. Complete the look with these Stallion Chocolate Python Boots or any Lucchese Handmade Classics boot.
4. Romantic Western
Imitate western fashion from a bygone era with this romantic, vintage-inspired outfit that is both sophisticated and comfortable. Match up your best pair of leggings with an embroidered coat from Vintage Collection. Style the look with something fabulously beaded like a handbag from Mary Frances.
