2020 Is the Year of the Reimagined Legging
Here’s every twist designers are putting on the classic silhouette.
Odds are you probably already have more than a few sets of basic black leggings in your repertoire—we’re definitely nearing double digits. With the rise of athleisure, the simple style has surpassed trend status and cemented itself as a long-term wardrobe staple. As that market becomes more and more saturated, designers are attempting to reimagine what a “legging” can look like, adding new elements like ruching, stirrups, or split hems.
These modern iterations offer up new sartorial potential within the realm of comfort-meets-fashion—the perfect ingredient for a WFH outfit upgrade. “I was inspired to redefine the average day legging without sacrificing comfort, to remain stretchy yet form-fitting and flattering on the body,” says designer Danielle Guizio of her ruched rendition. With the refinement of a pair of trousers but the comfort of sweats, a legging is our favorite pant of the season. Not to mention they can be paired with anything from a blazer to a sweatshirt (or both). Continue scrolling to discover every iteration filling our carts at the moment.
