Now that Spring is literally around the corner, one (dare I say), “contentious” wardrobe piece comes to mind: LEGGINGS.
Comfy as ever, they’re the easiest thing to wear when the weather’s not quite cold, not quite hot.
The question is, are leggings a thing of the past – or can you still incorporate them into your style rotation while keeping your inspo-worthy grace?
After doing some extensive research (google-ing), I found a Vogue “Go Ask Anna” video where Anna implies that leggings are OUT, but will probably come back into style in 10 years. (Remember, fashion is cyclical.)
But for those still holding onto the stretchy, versatile, and oh-so-comfy legwear – there’s hope! Fashion all-star Jennifer Lopez has recently been spotted out and about wearing leggings multiple times. Plus, the pandemic has got some of us living in our leggings 24-7.

Personally, I’ll be riding the legging train for as long as I can get away with it.
P.S. for those who side with Anna Wintour – we get it. The biker short trend is still going strong.

It’s happening, folks. Make up your own minds about it.
