Sometimes, one new item can have a truly bold impact on the rest of our wardrobe. While it’s obviously valuable to stock up on basics that match easily will all your other favourites, sometimes, we have to venture outside the norm and try a new item that will be the center of attention in all our outfits.
Enter: the white ruched leggings. They are a completely new take on everything you thought a legging could be. Rather than a laid-back basic, these leggings are a daring, fashion-forward piece that commands attention and has a ripple effect on everything else you wear with them.
Why we love them
Unexpected colour: We love a pair of classic black leggings, but white is totally daring. It adds an element of freshness that is perfect for summertime.
Ruching: Textured details are always key in any outfit. The ruching along the calves of these leggings gives the look a slightly dainty feel.
Comfort: Although these leggings diverge from the norm in their colour and style, they are still just as comfortable as any other pair. They are just perfect for when you’re on the go.
Ways to wear them
With your denim jacket: Spice up your old leather jacket by pairing it with your white ruched leggings. With your fav t-shirt and trusty denim, your leggings will be the star of this outfit. Wear them with sneakers to add to the laid-back vibe.
In place of white jeans: For any outfit that would normally call for white jeans, you can swap them out for your white ruched leggings. With a chambray shirt, nautical stripes, or an off-the shoulder top, white ruched leggings will complete the look while adding double the comfort.
Under a maxi dress with high slits: This outfit would be the ultimate instance of cute-meets comfy. Wear the outfit with pretty, flat sandals.
With a bright patterned top: White bottoms are the perfect blank canvas for a cheerful, colourful top. Floral or abstract patterns, in cropped or long tunic style, are all great picks.
With a blazer and heel: Try a peach or pale pink blazer, long enough that it hits below your hips, and a light coloured heel—either pumps or a strappy sandal. This look is totally classy enough for a night out.
