What to Wear With Burgundy Leggings: Outfit Idea

I collect black leggings the way some women collect white shirts. I have dozens, and I wear them all the time. But recently I came across a pair of gorgeous burgundy leggings which have lit up my wardrobe. Take a look at how I wear them with this cute poncho.

Burgundy leggings are a rare find, and this time of year they are just what you need to look classy and to put you in the holiday mood. This pair from Ann Taylor has loads of style. They’re stretchy knit pants that feel light and comfy, but they’re sturdy and a decent thickness, more like pants than leggings.

The side zip makes them easy to pull on and they fit smooth and soft like a glove. It’s hard to get me out of these because they are that perfect combo of chic and comfy.

Here’s what they look like from the side with that perfect crop length that plays your ankles.

For this shoot, I’ve paired my leggings with this cute fringe poncho which also comes in charcoal and beige. I love this kind of look that’s all one color with a colorful print in the middle of my outfit to liven things up.

As you can see, that blouse is such a pretty print- a strong floral design but not overpowering. The pretty sleeves are so feminine.

This blouse is soft and flowy like a peasant top and so rich looking against the burgundy.

My rope pull bag is in keeping with this elegant look, and I’m wearing it with these ladylike pumps with the scalloped edges which you’ve seen me wear before.

Now, not everyone likes a pump with a high skinny heel, so I thought it might be nice to let you have a look at my leggings and poncho outfit worn with booties. These military inspired booties with the smart-looking row of buttons are as cute as they come. Hope you liked this look!

    1. Agree Lynne, It’s more of a dressy look for special occasions however you can definitely wear this outfit with ballet flats or booties as I have shown in the last photo. That’s more how I would wear them for everyday.

    1. Hi Rosa, Most leggings are on the thin side, and not always so opaque almost like stockings with the feet cut out. Those need to be worn with a long top otherwise they offer no support and reveal too much, but these leggings are made of sturdy, high quality, thicker, completely opaque material. They are really skinny, stretchy knit pants. They aren’t revealing like most leggings are and that is why you can wear them as I have. My tummy is not perfectly flat so I chose a top that is longer than one that ends at the waist, but shorter than one that ends at the thigh. You could certainly wear these with a longer top though if you felt more comfortable. Hope that helps.
