Aim High With Style Expert Sydney Sadick: 5 Different Ways To Wear Black Leggings This Fall

As a national TV correspondent (TODAY, E!, Inside Edition), fashion editor and style expert, NYC it girl Sydney Sadick has perfected the art of dressing for the part you want in life. In her new book Aim High: How to Style Your Life and Achieve Your Goals, Sydney shares her ethos on how to live fearlessly, achieve your dreams, and use fashion as a tool to ignite goal-getting confidence.

Not even a pandemic can stop her; as the nation-wide quarantine halted her industry, Sydney launched the ‘Lunchtime with Sydney’ Instagram Live show where 125,000+ viewers tune in weekly to watch her interview fashion and beauty icons like Bobbi Brown, Steve Madden, Lele Sadoughi, Alana Hadid, and some of today’s hottest reality celebrities.

The art of pivoting is just one of the many tricks Sydney has picked up over the years that drives her success. Now, she shares her story in her book to help others find their inner voice/style (and look fabulous in the process).

Black leggings are essential to our quarantine wardrobes this fall. They’re comfortable, look great on all women of any age and body type, and are the perfect canvas for dressing up or down. Here are 5 different ways I suggest wearing them.


1. Zoom Meetings: Make a statement in the upper portion of your outfit since this is where people will be seeing you. A puff-shoulder cardigan or a blazer in a flexible fabric with a bodysuit or t-shirt underneath paired with a gold hoop earring a bold lip will give your favorite bottoms a professional upgrade. 

2. Socially-Distanced Lunch: If you’re meeting a friend for a socially distanced lunch outside you want to make sure you’re dressed warm! This is where layering comes into play. Pair your leggings first with a t-shirt, then a chunky knit sweater in a fall–approved color (deep burgundy, forest green), and a chic puffer coat. A pair of biker boots is also a fun way to add a little edge to your chilly-weather outfit. Your leggings allow you to mix textures, colors, and patterns, so have fun with it. 

3. Comfy and Cozy: Netflix and chill calls for leggings and hoodies. Tie-dye is here to stay but in fall colors. Throw it on with your pair of leggings and a furry slipper and you’ll still look put together even if you have no plans on moving

4. Virtual Date: You don’t want to look like you tried too hard, but you still want to look put together. Your leggings will complement any top. Show off a little skin with an off the shoulder top paired with a chain choker necklace. It’s not too much but just enough. 

5. At-Home Workout: Pair your leggings to a fun graphic t-shirt or colorful sports bra with a zip-up hoodie over it. The way you dress affects your mood so even bringing out some color to your leggings will make you a little more motivated to head to that online workout class.

Bringing the glamour

One great way of upgrading your style is to invest in some gorgeous accessories that will elevate any outfit, no matter what the occasion is. Roma Designer Jewelry is a good place to start as you will be able to browse a huge range of on-trend products online on your phone or laptop anywhere, so you can make the most of your commute to and from work rather than having to put time aside especially to just go shopping. Something as simple as investing in a statement necklace with a unique design will go with lots of outfits and give you a little injection of glamour whether you are going to an important job interview where you have to dress to impress or just going out for a coffee date with the girls on the weekend and want to look your best.

Out of your comfort zone

Getting out of your comfort one is one of the very best ways to discover a new style that you love and a great way to do this is by experimenting with fashionable hairstyles to try out. This is a great thing to do because it doesn’t require you spend lots of money or make a long-term commitment to a new look, such as changing the color of your hair.

A hairstyle that is very in at the moment is the textured low ponytail. You start to create the texture by using a curling wand and gently pulling your hair into a ponytail. Before you tie your hair back, leave a thick strand of hair loose from the ponytail and wind it around to cover the elastic hair band for a natural look that appears effortlessly professional.

A great professional look is a top knot which requires barely any effort. To create the look, start by brushing your hair smoothly into a very high ponytail, then use a hair doughnut to get instant volume and definition without having to use lots of product or heat to create the dome shape and then secure with pins.

Finally, there is the Sleek Chignon for a stylish French look. Pull your hair back into an ultra-low ponytail, sitting just above the nape of your neck. Next, take the hair and twist tightly before securing in a small spiral with bobby pins.

Striding into style

With the winter on its way, on fashion item you will need to make an investment in is a good pair of boots. The best winter boots for women will be something that is functional, comfortable, and all importantly, fashionable. Think about the outfits you like to wear and decide whether ankle, knee, or thigh high boots are right for you. For example, if you prefer to wear to dresses and skirts, then a higher boot will be the best way to keep warm, whereas if you like wearing trousers, then a sleek pair of ankle boots will do the trick with your boot cut jeans. When it comes to color, you need to make a choice between versatile, with colors such as black and brown, or statement colors like red or electric blue.

Looking good

A great accessory that is a worth the investment is a stylish pair of glasses. Even if you do not need them to read or drive, getting a non-prescription is an easy way to heighten your style and instantly make you look more intellectual. You need to really pay attention to how to choose the right glasses for you, as different styles will suit different face shapes, which is the most important factor when making your choice. If you find that you have a naturally round face, then you should try on rectangle and cat eye styles as the angular lines will contrast well with the soft lines of your face. Conversely, if you have a square face, round frames or the aviator style will work for the same reasons.

The one winter staple you can’t do without

As it is getting much colder in the coming months, there is one fashion must have you need to get and that is a gorgeous winter coat. There is lots of advice on how to choose the perfect winter coat that you can find online which is really worth reading as, when you are going to spend so much money, you need to know what you’re getting is both exactly what you want style-wise, while also offering the functional warmth you need to get to and from work. One way of ensuring your get quality is to always check the label of what the coat you want to buy to check that it is not largely made or acrylic material as this will not offer you’re the warmth or comfort that you need.

Upgrading your style doesn’t mean you have to completely throw out your wardrobe and chop all your hair off, it instead means that you take the basics and essentials of your outfits and find ways of making them more exciting. Taking a few moments every morning to add something new to an outfit or try a different hairstyle will give you the extra spring in your step you need to upgrade your style.
