(Video) Classic Fashion Over 40/Casual Preppy: How I Styled Navy Leggings


(ABOVE) I like how this white Kate Spade white cross body bag stands out against the darker coral and navy colors.

I got these leggings at Marshall’s last summer, intending to use them for everyday casual wear, but I wasn’t really sure how I wanted to style them. (Up until this point, I’d worn leggings only for lounging or fitness.)

When I found this longer-length sweater at Talbots recently, I decided to try the leggings.  I wanted a preppy sportswear feel, so I paired them with a turquoise Ralph Lauren polo shirt (monogrammed with my initials), white Kate Spade crossbody, and navy and white woven leather bracelets.  Add the leather Bernardo thong sandals in the same color as the leggings, and I think the overall look is clean and uncomplicated.

In the end, I’m happy with my outfit.  It’s very comfortable–and cute, too. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
