20 Best Legging Outfit Ideas While Travelling

Some of us love travelling. Some of us are not so enthusiastic about it. But all of us can agree that being both comfortable and stylish is an absolute non-negotiable. Enter leggings. They are the perfect article of clothing, whether you are flying, travelling by bus, or planning your holiday wardrobe. They pair well with almost any top and you can dress them up or down according to your needs. Plus, they take up way less space than your stack of vacation jeans.

Best Leggings to Wear While Traveling

Styling Tips

  1. Opt for well-fitting, form-sculpting leggings with a high waist
  2. Consider compression leggings if you know you will be sitting for long periods
  3. Whenever possible, go for moisture-wicking leggings which will keep you dry and comfortable no matter the temperature
  4. Seamless leggings are the height of comfort – when in doubt, go seamless!
  5. The more opaque the better as nobody wants to worry about undergarments showing

↓20. Traveling to Colder Places

Sometimes it is hard to gauge what outfit would be best to wear if you are traveling to a colder place. That is where these leggings come in. Fleece-lined and seamless, they are comfy while providing a layer of warmth your stems will thank you for. Simply wear with a loose-fitting turtleneck and pair with some Adidas sneakers. This is a chic look that will meet all your traveling needs. You can also opt for Adidas leggings to go with the sneakers, here are some cool Adidas Legging Outfits.

If you have ever wondered, “Can I wear leggings as pants?” the answer is… yes! It’s all about confidence. Pair them with your favorite heels, wear under a blazer, or simply throw them on with your cutest sweatshirt. For traveling, leggings are super light and compact (e.g. they do not take up that much space in your suitcase). So if you decide to bring along leggings instead of your jeans, go for it!

Here are a few ways you can wear your leggings as pants:

  • wear black leggings and pair with heels or boots for a cute lunch look
  • don your favorite leggings, throw on a pair of stylish sneakers, and tie a plaid or chambray shirt around your waist for a perfect day-out-exploring-a-new-city look!
  • simply wear with your favorite turtleneck or sweater for a form-flattering coffee date outfit
  • pair black leggings with a blouse, blazer, and flat, closed-toe shoes for lunch with a client
  • throw on leggings and a form-hugging hoodie for the perfect loungewear look
  • wear dark green or black leggings with a soft sweatshirt for a great travel outfit

For this look, all you need are some chic sneakers, a stylish grey sweater, and a backpack purse or tote bag. Let your hair down and grab that passport. Off to explore you go!

↓16. Compression Leggings

There are many benefits to wearing compression leggings when travelling. Sitting for extended periods can cause circulatory problems, so if you are at a higher risk, consider compression leggings which are designed to aid in circulation and keep down swelling. We recommend trying on a few pairs as only you know what level of compression you will be comfortable with. However, these dark gray leggings by Old Navy are a great place to start.

Simply pair with a light sweater and some sneaks for a travel-ready outfit that will keep you healthy and comfortable!
