Printed Leggings

Someday, your 'prints' will come - oh wait, they're already here in the form of printed leggings! We've reinvented the casual dressing staple with an array of patterns and motifs you won't find anywhere else. Cats in space, vibrant flowers over classic houndstooth plaid, scallops, dashes, teacups, and more round out our eye-catching assortment, so there's a stunning style available for all tastes and aesthetics. Knit bottoms like these are more than enough to liven up a day of lounging with truly fashionable flavor. With so many different options to choose from, we bet you can't pick just one! There's no better time than the present to start building your signature collection of printed leggings.

Patterned leggings with a wild color scheme and theme may seem like a daunting thing to style, but fear not! You've got this. Try pairing your brand new find with black shirts, so the printed leggings do all the talking without competing with your other outfit pieces. Really, any solid-colored top will do! Keeping the other elements of your ensemble toned down will allow your quirky leggings to take center stage, exactly as they deserve. It's a great strategy to apply when styling any kind of printed clothes for the first time! Once you're comfortable using basics to outfit your printed leggings, try working with contrasting patterns in the same color family to build a more elevated ensemble. For example, if there are blue stripes on your leggings, you can easily outfit with a blue blouse that flaunts a subtle dotted pattern. Experimentation is key to finding looks that you love the most. Or, shirk the suggestions and go full quirk with bold pattern mixing! At the end of the day, you make the rules for your own unique style.

Found some awesome new printed leggings in your specific style? Awesome! It's time to build an outfit around that sensational statement piece. If you're looking to infuse a quirky look with a hint of cozy, opt for a cowl neck sweater and let the toasty times roll. Floral pants and breezy tank tops in versatile hues are a great way to ensure your ensemble truly blossoms. Cream tops, a flannel tied around the waist, chunky boots - when it comes to styling plus size leggings, your imagination is always the best place to begin!

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED LEGGINGS? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today!

  • 50’s Women’s Leggings: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when skinny plaid leggings, capri leggings, and cigarette pants first made their debut! High-waisted leggings paired with stylish belts, and pants with pockets became a fashion must-have, and don’t forget the prints! Polka-dot leggings, plaid leggings, and striped leggings have been stealing hearts ever since. By the end of this fashion era, cropped skinny leggings, and high-waisted leggings were all the rage, and getting paired with sleeveless button-up tops, stylish flats, or sensible kitten heels. 
  • 60’s Women’s Leggings: In the 1960’s, wide-leg leggings, high-rise flare leggingss, bell-bottom leggings, and leggings with bold floral embroidery or rainbow striped detailing became all the rage. Bold floral print leggings, leopard print leggings, and colorblock leggings are still fashion hallmarks of this iconic era.. 
  • 70’s Women’s Leggings: High-rise flare leggings with bold geometric prints can be traced back to the 1970s fashion era. Bell bottoms, corduroy leggings, wide-leg leggings, and sassy jumpsuits filled the disco dance floors. Overall pants made an appearance in the 70’s, and the disco era also made way for sequin leggings and stretchy velvet leggings. 
  • 80’s Women’s Leggings: The demand for cute and comfortable track pants blew up  in the 1980’s, and mom jeans hit the scene! Pleated leggings were perfect for work and acid wash denim pants, paperbag pants, and baggy joggers with bold neon prints ruled the dance floor. The birth of hip-hop brought us baggy jeans, while rainbow prints, neon colorblock, and animal prints were stretched out as far as the eye can see. 
  • 90’s Women’s Leggings: Plaid pants had a major resurgence in the 90’s, and leggings finally took their rightful place in everyday apparel. Brightly printed leggings, neon leggings, and vibrant solid leggings layered under an oversized tee were a casual wardrobe staple. Finish your look with a pair of combat boots, wedge sandals, or chunky Mary Janes and voila! A total nineties babe!
