There is no denying that leggings have become a streetwear staple to the wardrobes of nearly every It girl in existence. Remember the great debate of whether or not leggings were pants? Well, that’s been put to rest, as celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Chrissy Teigen not only wear them on the regular, but they style them in ways unthinkable. In case you weren’t aware, Gigi and Chrissy have the same stylist, Monica Rose, and during a three-day trip hosted by Reebok, I had the opportunity to interview the genius herself.
Curious to pick her brain on all things legging- and sneaker-related, I first asked Monica what the best sneakers to wear with leggings are. She said, “I think a [Reebok] classic leather is good to wear. I just think it’s such a comfortable shoe. When I wear them, I’m excited for work and excited to be comfortable. But for leggings, I think any sneaker really goes with them.” If you aren’t familiar with the Classic Leather sneakers Monica speaks so highly of, don’t worry, we shopped out the best colors below.
In addition to the best sneakers to wear with leggings, I asked Monica what the one item was she would never style with leggings. Without hesitation, she clearly stated to consider leaving your thigh-high boots at home. If Monica Rose, the mastermind behind some of the most memorable looks in fashion right now, says she would never put thigh-high boots with leggings, that means the powerful clan that is Monica’s clients won’t be wearing that boot style with leggings anytime soon.
Go on to shop the sneakers Monica Rose says look the best with leggings, including the Reebok Classic Leather style.
