While most late-November days are just begging us to stay at home, wrapped up in some serious layers with a cup of hot cocoa (and, if you’re anything like us, a
cheesy Lifetime movie
), alas, we must venture out sometime
. And if there’s anything that makes the trek to, well, anywhere a little easier, it’s a pair of oh-so-cozy leggings.
They spent a long time as the black sheep of the trouser family, but thanks to the insurgence of on-trend styles (velvet and brocade, anyone?), leggings aren’t just our designated weekend loungewear anymore
. Put an end to the leggings-as-pants debate (it still
rages on) and wear ‘em with an oversized cardigan for weekend brunch or get fancy and pair a patterned style with a metallic skirt for a festive go-to holiday outfit.
Here, we pulled together 12 styles that are bound to stay in heavy rotation this season.
