With winter winding down, it’s time to get the most out of those seasonal pieces, like printed knit leggings, that will soon be shelved (or boxed or vacuum sealed). How adorable are style bloggers Ashley Kuitunen of Breakfast at Saks, Rachella Kordijk of The Only Fashion Princess, and Stacey Belko of Devorelebeaumonstre? These ladies warmed their legs in festive yuletide prints that have us wanting to knock back some eggnog and cozy up next to a fire. What?! It’s not Spring…YET!

Everything about Ashley’s outfit looks SO comfortable. From her long thrifted grandpa cardigan, printed T-shirt, and Urban Outfitters beanie, down to her Nasty Gal knit leggings, it’s a cozy combination of soft fabrics we’d love to curl up in. Her look also incorporates one of winter’s other big trends, the navajo print.

Printed leggings run the risk of overtaking a whole outfit in an unflattering way, but in Amsterdam-based blogger Rachella’s case, the stitched snowflake pattern actually has the opposite effect. The slim fit elongates her legs, and when layered with a black top and cropped, off-the-shoulder sweater, the leggings provide a long, lean look that counters the bagginess of her pullover. Her leggings are the clear statement-making piece of her ensemble, but we love how she adds a bit of personality to her top half with the addition of a pendant necklace.

Stacey proves that trying out trends doesn’t have to be pricey; her fair isle printed pants only cost $15 from eBay! These thick knit leggings not only keep her gams covered in the cold climate of her Pittsburgh hometown, but look great for any occasion. As Stacey demonstrates, it’s important to keep your top half subdued when wearing powerful prints on bottom. Her Forever 21 Henley and light linen sweater from Macy’s are the perfect complement, while her orange clutch (also Forever 21) gives a bright pop of color.
