3) You can wear a pair of fleece lined leggings:

Nonetheless, wearing leggings in winter has some downfalls. One tip for wearing leggings during the winter is wearing a pair of fleece lined leggings. Traditional leggings tend to be made of a thinner spandex material. Which is not always the best during the winter since they don't help trap the heat in. Which is why wearing a pair of fleece leggings is a must due to the soft fleece lining. These types of pants would pair really nicely with a sweater and a warm winter coat. This whole look would be great to keep you warm when you have to spend an extended amount of time outside. They are perfect for walking your dog in the cold weather, attending a hockey game, or having to shovel your driveway after a snowfall. The opportunities are endless! Fleece lined leggings will provide you with the extra warmth you need during the winter. You can even layer your fleece lined leggings under a pair of women's snow pants. Great for a day filled with sleigh riding outside with your kids !
