Unfortunately I’m old enough to remember when Stirrup Leggings were trending for the first time… I say sadly because I’m turning 41 this year and I’m still having a hard time believing it. I remember my mom had a pair in the 80’s and they were almost always styled in a more casual way, typically with oversized sweaters and sneakers. The approach to the 2022 stirrup trend is a little different. In 2022 we wear this rather casual piece much more chic and elegant.
Today I want to share my favorite way to style this trendy product. First change is of course the shoe style. Instead of settling on a pair of sneakers, try pairing your stirrup leggings with heels like the one Saint Laurent Vesper pumps I contribute in today’s post (link to more Saint Laurent Vesper Pump Colors HERE). This elevated shoe style adds an elegant touch that will add sparkle to your look.
Second, instead of going for an oversized casual sweater or hoodie, try pairing your stirrup leggings with tailored toppers like mid-length coats or oversized blazers. Tailored pieces do a great job of balancing out the casual feel of the leggings, but also pair well with heeled pumps. I wear today a coat from The Frankie Shop, a brand I’ve been obsessed with for a while. I admire their impeccable quality and trendy tailoring (linked to different colors of this coat HERE).
Last but not least, complete your look with a structured bag like the Saint Laurent Nano Manhattan bag I’m wearing today’s look. Polished accents add the finishing touch to your stirrup leggings look and help bring all the elements together.
