Leggings as pants is tricky concept. It really is a grey area. Pretty sure it's a 'no' unless you're confident in your styling - which it's very easy to be, so that makes it a yes*. This day it was nearly a miss because they were old leggings, they were thrown out at the end of the day. 

TIP: LEGGINGS AS PANTS -- A "top over the crotch" rule is standard.

One word: comfort. I'm lucky in that I don't have a corporate dress code at my job. However, I dress to inform my disposition on the job. If I need to be more present and focused, I'll dress more sharply. If I need to move and work quickly, I'll wear something like this which fall under my personal category of "work pajamas". 

TIP: TEXTILES -- Pay attention to how textures inform your disposition. Tailored tweed might be  helpful for an interview but casual Friday can extend all week if you stick to softer knits and cotton. 

What's your favorite fabric feeling?
