Leggings at work have long been a divisive topic. Why should you give them a chance? They’re comfortable, stylish and a great neutral base for any outfit. Monkee’s of Virginia Beach is here to give you some tips on how to best wear leggings at work and look amazing doing it.

 

FABRIC IS KEY

The legging material is key in elevating the outfit as a whole. When buying them for work look for nicer materials like suede or velvet as opposed to a basic black cotton blend.  While it may be tempting to go with the cheaper option, there’s nothing worse than see-through leggings, so try to stick with thicker fabrics even if that means a slightly higher price tag.  This pair of Spanx velvet leggings from Monkee’s of Virginia Beach is a great example.
