Fashion Edit #26 - 👖 Legging Revival! 👖

Fashion Edit #26 - 👖 Legging Revival! 👖
Remember last year when you were told very firmly by the fashion police that you were to swap all your precious leggings for skinny jeans and straight cut trousers?
The wait is finally over! Leggings are BACK & with a vengeance!

"We'd all thought leggings had been relegated to a sartorial no-go zone. But thanks to Balenciaga, Gucci, and Céline, cinching Lycra has never been so appealing."

   The Catwalks

(above - left) Pringle of Scotland Autumn/Winter 2017 and (above - right) Jill Stuart Spring/Summer 2017 both used leggings for layering "helping to create different dimensions of outfit. In other words, the leggings have taken these looks from 3D to 4D". 

(Above & Below) Gucci Spring/Summer 2017

"(Gucci’s) most recent SS17 collection includes leggings that effortlessly blend athleisure and Gucci’s signature embroidery. ... also included in the collection are similar tracksuit leggings, except with dainty bow detailing down the middle. Oh and sequins. Leggings came in sequins too"!:

"Giambattista Valli is keen to take Nike leggings from the sportswear section and elevate them to luxury status for AW17":

"Rather than pairing them with a hoodie or running top, Giambattista Valli paired them with tops featuring structured sleeves and puffy ruffles while dramatic lace-up booties added extra glam ...

Valli insisted that leggings will be the new LBD for AW17"
