… Sort of. And I couldn’t be happier. I’m not going to lie, I was a pretty happy chick six or so years ago when leggings were totally in and acceptable wear on a daily basis. I was pregnant with Lara and then a new mom and leggings were pretty much THE answer to all my clothing questions/issues. They’re comfortable and easy to wear, plus they’re a step up from the good ol’ sweatpant, yet kind of do the same trick.
Then suddenly they were not as cool anymore, replaced by super skinny jeans and leather pants (some in the form of leggings), which are obviously not as comfortable. I still like ’em of course but leggings are in an entirely different comfort zone, if you know what I mean.
But over the past 6 months or so my dreams of seeing leggings out in the street again were slowly coming true. Mainly thanks to Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who are both like 10 years younger than me and brave enough to wear crop tops on a daily basis but shhhhhh… Let’s not get too specific!
Anyhow, I’m loving the idea of their comeback and I’m also loving these new sheer/mesh, cut out styles I’ve been seeing. They give the casual legging a little extra ooomph! And honestly, my feelings on leggings are this: if you pair them with other on trend pieces of the moment, then you can get away with wearing them pretty much always. I am convinced of this and considering my love for athleisure, it’s probably impossible to tell me otherwise.
Here are a few style and leggings options I’m currently loving. I’ll take one of each please…
