The arrival of spring means a lot of things, most importantly — leggings season! Spring is warm enough to ditch your jeans and casual enough to rock some spandex. If you're looking to embrace the leggings and shirt look all season long, I've pulled together a ton of great shirts to wear with leggings for that ultimate chill spring vibe. Whether you're on the hunt for a casual outfit or want something more formal, you'll find a top below that'll work.
Though I've heard the argument from my friends plenty of times that you can't wear leggings as pants, I wholeheartedly disagree. I mean, they cover your booty, are super comfortable, can be worn with basically anything, and are so, so stretchy. What more could you ask for? Plus, with the popularity of athleisure wear on the rise, my leggings are not only stupid cozy, but completely on-trend. So, ha!
If you, too, have had to deal with leggings-as-pant shamers, hold your head up high. Grab your favorite pair of leggings and scroll on below for the perfect shirt to top them off with. Just make sure your leggings don't have any holes or are too see-through (unless that's the look you're going for), and rock on!
