You can't deny the versatility of a great pair of leggings, and it seems like this fashion staple is here to stay. The outfit of this week's Fashionista utilizes the ever-popular garment in a tried and true, yet sassy way. I love her attention to detail with eye-catching gold hardware on most of her accessories, including her bag and thick belt. Her black bag also provides contrast against her brown belt and boots, which are complemented by her oversized denim blouse (another popular piece I adore). You can't go wrong with a classic pairing, and this Fashionista proves that leggings belong in the limelight.

How To: To get this Fashionista's look, take advantage of the leggings trend and pair a long blouse or dress top with a pair of your favorite leggings. And incorporate small details into your outfit, like coordinating gold hardware or chrome accents. A pair of leggings can be found at Forever 21, and the leggings can be paired with a loose blouse, similar to a dress shirt found at NorthStyle.
