Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

It’s basically a fact of college life at this point: leggings are the new skinny jeans. And while not all of us are sold on the “leggings are pants!” debate, it’s pretty safe to say they’re here to stay, whether you’re lounging in the dorms or getting ready for karaoke night. Personally, I love the idea of wearing leggings on a night out — what can I say, I’ve gotta be comfy!

This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a very nighttime appropriate piece, leather-look leggings, for both day and night. If you’re looking for some wardrobe inspiration, read on:

For a cozy daytime look, pair your leggings with a warm, Fair Isle sweater for instant comfort. The baggier the better, in this case! (Of course, you can opt for a longer tunic sweater if you prefer even more coverage.) Layer up with a rich red textured infinity scarf and a pair of killer black combat boots. Grab a classic black shoulder bag and complete the ensemble with spiky gold studs for an edgy look that’s still super cute.

Keep the comfy theme going by pairing your leggings with a nighttime-appropriate fuzzy emerald green cropped sweater. Add sparkle with a black-and-white statement necklace and a studded clutch. Go rocker chic with a pair of edgy triangle-shaped earrings, then grab some glammed-up hiking boots to complete the look.

    Someone needs to make a post about how to wash these. I want a pair but I always wonder how you’re supposed to clean them :/

    Su, every bit of clothing has a label with washing instructions. Generally, if you turn your clothes inside out and wash them on the lowest heat (30 degrees celcius in Europe) and a slower washing cycle they will keep well. I don’t have a dryer, which is friendlier on clothes and more encironmentally friendly. You may want to dry them laying out like you would woolwn sweaters.
