Leggings are often considered as a fashion item associated with the eighties era and only to be worn in situations such as doing Jane Fonda’s workout DVDS. However, over the years leggings fashion has slowly but surely come back on trend and many of the top retailers now stock the garment in every pattern, print and colour.
Often what can be a problem when many consider how to wear the garment is whether they are deemed as casual or not. They can often be associated with everyday wear or even for gym wear which can put people off the idea of wearing them for night time occasions.
However, since the development of styles such as wet look leggings or leather leggings, more and more people are wearing the garment to even go clubbing in. Worn with a dressy top and with sky high heels, leg wear can help to accentuate the legs by both making a person look taller and making the legs look more toned and structured.
There are a variety of prints available on the market today. From everything to American flag print to moustache print. A recent trend that has hit various retailers is that of galaxy print. This print can be seen in dresses, skirts, tops and in particular leggings which seem to be flying off the shelves. Various celebrities have been seen sporting the wet look styles including Kim Kardashian who is seen wearing them on a weekly basis. This has also contributed to the popularity in leggings.
So how can leggings be worn? With almost anything as showcased to us by celebrities. Rihanna is frequently spotted in brand BOY’s printed leggings and teams them with other clashing prints for a truly unique look. Many believe that if leggings have a vivid printed design they must be worn with plain garments. However this is not necessarily true as clashing prints is a frequent trend that is seen on various catwalks in both London and Paris.
A key trend that has been seen in high street retailers for a few months now is that of peplum. The peplum design is great for curvier figures and helps to cover up and lumps and bumps. First starting in dresses, peplum tops have now become extremely popular and look fantastic with tight leggings.
