6 Cute Alternatives To Long Underwear

It's the endless plight of the Chicago girl: looking cute and staying warm in during a legit winter. We know you lose sleep over this, and we've got your back. If it's so cold outside that you need an extra layer (or five), why fight to keep that layer hidden when it can look so good right there out in the open? Check out these ten stylish ways to ditch your long underwear forever (or simply just relegate it to the pajama drawer). Check out all the ways you can re-outfit your closet with the help of these toasty miracle-workers.
1. Ditch your basic black leggings, (they've probably got holes in them by now anyway). Try a fun, geometric print paired with your best moto-boot and boyfriendy sweater.

3. You know you have to layer, so why not start out sexy? This slim, curve-loving option will keep the rest of your outfit from bulking up.

4. Try something unexpected (and totally warm). Layer a leather legging under an oversized cardigan or button down.

5. We know this one pushes the long-underwear envelope, but how often do basic warming layers come in cool colors? Instead of fighting to cover every inch of embarrassing fabric, you'll be happy to let this one peek out under your layers.

6. A fun print is the perfect way to zap yourself out of mid-winter boredom. The high waist and stirrups will make your entire collection of leggings jealous.
