Capri Leggings

I recently got some capri leggings to wear during the warmer weather. Since I’m tall and usually get long leggings and pants, these are a bit short, but the length has actually grown on me...

The other day, I wore the capri leggings with an old striped dress from Banana Republic. I love brown and black together, and I love stripes, so the dress is a winner in my book. And since the dress is a bit short, I really love wearing it with leggings.

I also wore my denim jacket as it was a cooler day.

And I’m still loving my Coach Pebble Satchel. A great “little” bag that holds a LOT of things.

Outfit Details: Dress: Banana Republic old (I love this striped Banana Republic dress), Yummy capri leggings, denim jacket old (similar), Coach Prairie Pebble Satchel in rose gold (I really love it in bright pink)

Questions: What’s your go-to outfit at the moment? Is it hot yet where you are? It's been warming up toward the end of the week, but before then it was quite cool at times.


Be well,
Andrea

  1. I love the way you styled your leggings! The striped dress looks perfect with the denim jacket on top and leggings on the bottom. The weather here is unseasonably cool, so I am all about layering too.

  2. Love a dress and leggings combination when it's a little cooler! Haven't worn it for a while as we have had such a hot autumn - but nearly wore it today, the winter weather is starting to arrive :)

    1. Yes, it's a great combo for transitional weather! It's also my go-to combo for trips where the weather can be all over the place.

  3. I like this look! And I own also some Capri leggings. When it is warmer it does not look good to wear longer leggings I think. And those stripes are very nice, a Denim Jacket is so Easy to wear . It suits everything!

    1. Thanks, Nancy! I ordered the leggings online, and I thought they would be just a bit longer, but I actually like them more and more... I know they will be perfect for cooler summer days and on vacation.

    1. Thanks, Brenda! These are my first shorter leggings (other than workout ones), but I have already worn them several times...

  7. I always find the women with the long legs can wear this style easily. It doesn't look so hot on me.

    We went from a very cool Spring and jumped straight into extreme heat and humidity. That's Ontario for you.

    1. Yes, I can see that capris are easier to wear when you have long legs. But even then I think proportions are important. Even though the length of these capri leggings has grown on me, I think the outfit may look better if they were just a bit longer... Or they would look better if I had shorter legs... :-)

      I always have a hard time adjusting to extreme weather changes. It was quite cool around here a week ago, and now it's super hot...

  8. Such a great look and I love the capri length leggings under your dress! I have been wanting to give this a try, but haven't purchased any capri length leggings yet. This look is making me want to go shopping soon. :)

  12. My current go to outfits is striped shirt dresses and sneakers! But I do have an adorable black and tan striped shirt dress that is a little too short, so I think layering it over some capri leggings is he perfect solution! I love your outfit. So easy and comfortable and completely pulled together!

  14. I love those leggings! I don't own any leggings that length, but I should probably pick a pair up. They would work great with dresses that are a bit on the short side.

  15. Andrea I love leggings with shorter dresses, I always feel like I don't want to show my legs. Except for when it's hot like it is here where I live right now. I live in flowy shorts right now with a tank top or something similar... Your combination looks really great!!

  16. Great idea! I wouldn't have thought of it...but that's such a perfect option if a dress is too short.

  18. I don't know why I don't own a pair of capri leggings. Dresses are often too short on me, but I don't want to wear long leggings in the spring/summer. Love this outfit on you!

  20. Your legs look like they are a mile long! I think that the tunic with leggings is a fantastic look (especially nice on you) and I, too, am a fan of black and brown together. Thank you for adding your post to Up, Down, All-Around.

  21. This is a great look. I seem to have a hard time finding dresses long enough so leggings are a big help.

  22. I like the idea of using a dress a tunic with leggings. I do have some dresses that I feel are too short and wear tights with it in the winter.

  23. Andrea, I love how adventurous you are with your style, the capri leggings look great on you. And the dress/tunic is perfect with them. I really like the strips and the colors. I think our style is a lot alike, mostly neutrals, but I'm not nearly as daring as you! Or as pulled together.

  25. Your outfit looks fantastic!! Those leggings are the perfect pairing with the dress and of course Jean jackets are a classic. It's a beautiful ensemble you are wearing.
