Sorry, ladies, this one actually isn’t for you.
Gentlemen: Have you been thinking about leggings lately? Maybe you’ve already been rocking the comfort and stretch of our amazing leggings, or maybe you’ve seen someone else in a fantastic print and thought to yourself “could that be me?”
Some people try to argue that men shouldn’t wear leggings, but we think that’s nonsense. Any history buff could tell you that men were wearing leggings way before women. Compression leggings have been a great addition to men’s athletic wear, but more and more we’ve seen men’s leggings, also called “meggings,” pop up on the fashion scene.
If you’ve been thinking about wearing leggings and aren’t sure where to start, or you already love your Lotus Leggings and want some outfit ideas, check out our style tips below:
What’s so great about leggings?
- They’re warmer than shorts.
- Legs for days! Get the form flattering look of skinny jeans without the discomfort.
- Do more of what you love. Enjoy the freedom and full range of motion of the stretchy material.
- More choices! You can find leggings in hundreds of prints, patterns, and color options.
Style Tips for Men Who Wear Leggings
Try an extra long graphic tee or a nicer shirt that offers a little extra coverage no matter what sort of leggings you’re wearing.

Layer it Up
Layered outfits are a great look for anyone. Try pairing darker colored leggings with a button up top layered with a loose fitting jacket or vest. How about our mech leggings ($18.99) for an edgier look?
It’s all about the details. Scarves, hats, watches, and jewelry can all add a little extra flair to your outfit and make your leggings look like part of an ensemble rather than the stand-out piece.
Sometimes simplicity is a good thing. Whether you’re rocking a pair of solids or you’re going for your favorite vibrant print, pairing those leggings with darker, solid colors can be a great way to either play up or tone down your overall look, depending on what you’re after.
Keep it Loose
Contrast is key. Try complementing the skin-tight look of leggings with a loose shirt or jacket. You’ll be rolling in style and in comfort.
