It took me a while to jump on the leggings train – I truly never understood why people wanted to wear what essentially is a pair of workout stretchy pants in public while putting everything on the, ahem, lower half of the body on display. Well, once I realized that leggings can look chic when paired with the right top or blouse, I was all over it. An outfit that combines style and comfort is my kind of look.
I recently picked up this sweater/blouse combination from the new Thakoon for Kohl’s Design Nation collection, and I immediately knew that I wanted to wear it with my favorite pair of faux leather leggings that I picked up last fall. This top is probably my favorite new thing hanging in my closet at the moment – the floral pattern keeps it sweet, but the darker hues paired against the faux leather gives the look just a touch of edge. Plus, the blouse is long enough to cover all those parts on the lower half of my body, so I’m a happy girl.
