As always, leggings are back in fashion and have been adapted to suit this season’s hottest trends. Currently, there are so many different outfits that can be created from this leg wear that is bang on trend this season.
Firstly, one of the biggest trends to make waves this season is animal print and of course leopard print is back! Yet again, this wilderness inspired look has caught on and been worn by many famous faces as well as causing a frenzy on the high street. On the catwalks, designer Betsy Johnson led the way with head to toe leopard print outfits, which sparked the trend.
Celebrities such as Pixie Lott and Paloma Faith have been spotted wearing animal print leg wear and most recently Fearne Cotton was seen wearing turquoise leopard print leggings, as well as Little Mix member Jesy Nelson following the leg wear trend.
This is one of the best ways to wear leggings this season; invest in some with an animal print and then create the rest of the outfit around them, choosing basic neutral colours such as black. These are great for dressing up an outfit and wearing for a night out with heels as well as casually during the day time with your favourite high tops.
Aztec prints are also on trend this season so why not invest in some printed leggings to make the most of this look? Leg wear has been a key piece in this trend and no Aztec-style outfit is complete without yours. For those who may be conscious of their legs, this print may not be the best one for you as they are often horizontal stripes which don’t flatter larger legs.
Something that does flatter legs however is vertical stripe leggings which have come to the forefront of fashion recently. This trend started with black and white striped jeans and now the high street have turned to leggings for a more flexible inexpensive garment in the same pattern; these will elongate the legs and can again be worn day or night for an on-trend look!
Basic coloured leggings are always easy to wear and can be adapted for each season. For the fall months, wear key colours such as burgundy, jade green, burnt orange and neutral grey and brown hues on your legs. Whereas in the spring months, it’s worth investing in some bright colours such as purples and pinks, as well as pastel tones and tie dye prints for a laid back summer look.
If you’re looking towards spring/summer then of course a key trend will be floral and fruit inspired prints, and there are lots of leggings with these prints. If floral prints for spring bore you and you want something more ahead of the fashion pack then look for some paisley print leggings as this is a big trend this season.
