The humble legging has come a long way. Gone are the days when your trusted legs played a supporting role to your overall look – with brands like BlackMilk creating leggings that are the true stars of any outfit. Here is BlackMilk's top five legging trends for this season.
One of the best things about leggings is how super-amazingly comfortable they are. The other great thing is they can sometimes be disguised as your other styles of pants without losing their comfy fit and style. For example the Not Actually Denim high – waisted or the Rip it Up leggings which could definitely be mistaken for your fave pair of jeans – but so much easier to slip on and wear all day. The detail is so amazing, we promise you will have everyone fooled. Bliss!
1. SPARKLE SPARKLE
Sometimes you just want to feel a little extra shiny and foil prints like BM’s range of gorgeous mermaid legs in a range of colours like Chameleon and Candy are ideal for the occasion. Sunny days will see the sparkle take on a whole new level.
2. LEGGINGS THAT LOOK LIKE OTHER PANTS
3. WET LOOK AND PVC LEGGINGS
Looking for a little bit more shine, but not so into the whole mermaid vibe? Wet look and PVC leggings might be more your style. Put them on and take over the world, these bad boys will have you looking like the ultimate bad girl – but in the nicest possible way! Add a colourful top to break it up, or keep with the darker tones for a moodier (totally tough) appearance.
4. PRINTED LEGGINGS
Whether you love a bit of colour, or you want to show your darker side, printed leggings can be the perfect fashion expression, as your legs become their own work of art. BlackMilk has so many styles to choose from, you are sure to find your own style. Pair them with a solid colour top for a paired down look, or go for a full pattern clash if that’s more your jam.
5. LEGGINGS... WITH POCKETS!
What do all the greatest items of clothing have in common? Pockets!! So why have they always keen kept to pants? No more. Leggings with pockets are a thing – a perfect, dreamy thing and these BM Matte Leggings have extra big ones to fit your extra big phone. So comfortable, so practical, so stylish.
