A way of injecting a little of you into every outfit. The good news is colourful leggings continue to grow in popularity, especially as part of a rising trend in athleisure.

Why Choose Coloured Leggings?

Do certain colours make you feel happy? That’s colour psychology. Different colours affect our mood and behaviour, with cooler tones like blue and green making us feel calm. By comparison, warmer shades like red and yellow evoke feelings of comfort. Over 50% of people associate yellow with joy, making it the perfect colour for days when you need a pick-me-up.

Funky leggings embrace the power of colour psychology. Bring a little happiness to your day by putting your best foot forward. Llama Leisure’s leggings come in a range of whimsical patterns, quirky prints and animal designs to suit every aesthetic. Explore our colourful leggings and choose a print that speaks to your personality. These statement leggings are go-to casual staples, whether you’re working from home or jetting off on holiday.

Step out of your comfort zone and boost your mood with a pastel leopard print, Greece-inspired colour palette or dragon scales leggings.

Styling Tips: What to Wear With Colourful Leggings

Deciding what to wear with colourful leggings is easier than you think. You can commit to the colour palette and embrace the power of dopamine dressing or balance your leggings with neutrals.

There are no hard or fast rules on how to style colourful leggings. Have fun and feel free to experiment by mixing and matching different pieces to find your personal style. Not sure where to start? We’re sharing five of our top styling tips for what to wear with colourful leggings.

Solid T-Shirts

A t-shirt in a solid colour helps to balance your outfit and pull it all together. You can never go wrong with a basic white t-shirt. Choose a shade that matches the colour palette of your leggings or a neutral colour like black or grey. A fitted t-shirt can elevate your outfit, while an oversized fit gives a more casual look.

If you have a pear-shaped silhouette, a bold t-shirt can draw attention upwards and accentuate your natural shape. Add a cardigan to relax at home or for a cosy, winter-ready outfit.


What we love about colourful leggings is that they’re a year-round staple. You can have these leggings on constant rotation in your closet especially with our seasonal designs for summer, autumn and Christmas. Layer up in the colder months with an oversized sweatshirt in a neutral or complementing shade.

Just like with solid t-shirts, you can switch between fitted sweatshirts and more oversized styles. A sweatshirt can transition your leggings from a yoga class to grabbing a coffee with your friend. Don’t shy away from sweatshirts with prints or graphic designs, especially if they work with the look of your funky leggings.

Fleece-style sweatshirts can make your outfit even more comfortable or a crewneck can switch it up for a casual, everyday outfit.


A jacket can make your colourful leggings even more versatile, helping you to easily transition from one season to the next. Leggings give you a flexible but snug fit, perfect for long walks or running errands. A jacket can make your outfit look more put together. It’s a great option for changing your outfit to make it outdoor-appropriate without compromising comfort.

Zip-up jackets are great for adding dimension, especially when worn open with a t-shirt or crop top. It’s a great alternative to a cardigan if you want to layer up while keeping your outfit looking put together.

Crop Tops

Activewear trends can inspire you to style colourful leggings with crop tops being a popular pairing with leggings.

A crop top works well when exercising and also becomes a great option for spring and summer. Alternatively, you can wear it as a base layer under a solid t-shirt or sweatshirt. Capri leggings are a great option for styling with a crop top in warmer temperatures.

Sports Bras

If you’re a fan of crop tops, try styling your colourful leggings with a sports bra. This outfit is perfect for a light-impact workout class, a walk along the beach or relaxing at home. The secret to wearing a sports bra with colourful leggings is to choose one that gives you the right support. Look for a style with thick straps that can double as a crop top for extra versatility.

Accessories To Elevate An Outfit

Leggings aren’t just for working out or running errands. The right accessories can elevate your colourful leggings and make them even more wearable. Think of your funky leggings as the base of your outfit and customise it with accessories.

Choose bold colours that complement your leggings and give a sense of cohesion to your outfit. Statement jewellery, like layered necklaces and rings, can help make your colourful leggings even more fashionable. If your leggings are a darker print, accessories can bring a pop of colour. A lightweight scarf can add dimension to your outfit and transform it from athleisure to everyday essential.
