Black leggings are a staple in my closet! These four black legging outfit ideas will help you wear them beyond the gym.

Need some black legging outfit ideas?

Black leggings are a staple in my closet. Especially over the last year, a black leggings outfit can be found in my weekly rotation. If you’re staying home way more and just want comfortable outfits, you might as well make them cute!

I’ve got four really easy black legging outfits today that are comfortable, casual, super cute, and can be copied with things already in your closet

My all time favorite black leggings

I’ve tried lots of black leggings, but THESE ZELLA LEGGINGS are my all time favorite everyday legging. 

Why I love these leggings: 

  • They’re a brushed material 
  • Uber stretchy but NEVER sag
  • I’ve owned mine for 3 years and after weekly washes and wears (including exercising), they still look brand new. 
  • Super thick material so they’re not sheer at all
  • Nice high waist with a thick waistband to hold everything in place
  • No pockets (I know some people love pockets in leggings, but I prefer my everyday leggings without pockets because it makes them feel less “athletic.”

I’d recommend sizing down in these leggings. I wear an XS, and have another pair in an XXS.

They always go on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every summer, but they’re worth every penny even full price. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth over the last three years, and you will too. 

Nordstrom Rack also has the lower Zella brand – I haven’t tried these ones, but honestly they look the same, they’re only $26, are fully stocked, and get great reviews!

Four easy black legging outfit combinations

Black legging outfit #1: Sweater, denim jacket, and sneakers

I know some of you may be uncomfortable with shorter tops when wearing leggings (you want to cover your booty – I get it!) but these leggings are sculpting and completely opaque, so they’re easier to wear as pants. 

An easy outfit combination is a pullover sweater layered under a lightweight jacket – denim is always a good choice and contrasts nicely against the black leggings. 

Add a cute pair of sneakers and you have a perfect casual everyday outfit.

Black leggings outfit #2: Long cardigan, graphic tee, and flats

I’m in love with this outfit. Easy, cute, and casual. You could do a graphic tee or a plain tee (or something with stripes would be cute!), layer a long cardigan over the top, and finish with a pair of flats

Of course you could always swap the flats with sneakers, oxfords, boots, or slippers (if you’re just hanging at home).

Black leggings outfit #3: Oversized sweater, ankle boots, and hat

Leggings are the perfect layer underneath an oversized or tunic length sweater. I love a tunic sweater with a scooped hem to give me a little more shape, but you could do a swing style or a straight cut – whatever floats your boat!

Since leggings and a big sweater are a simple combo, I added a fun fedora hat and a pair of cute black ankle boots.

Black leggings outfit #4: Knotted tee, lightweight jacket, sneakers, and baseball cap

A knotted tee is one of my favorite layering tricks (and no, it doesn’t ruin the t-shirt — it bounces right back when it gets washed). 

Layer it underneath a longer lightweight jacket and finish with a baseball cap and sneakers. Perfect soccer mom outfit!
