It’s been a hot minute since I uttered the word “leggings”
Thanks to the Saint Laurent high-octane Fall 2020 show, these body huggers are firmly back on my radar.
The difference this time is that they come in a party-ready Latex finish which is perfect for Christmas or New Year’s Eve festivities. Designer Anthony Vaccarello presented his second skin versions in a variety of colours and styled them with everything from sharp tailoring to feminine blouses.
What I also love is that they sit high on waist which immediately adds length to your legs, even more so when you add heels into the mix. A pair beautifully made high-shine leggings can be broken up with the belt and look particularly modern with an elongated blazer, a boyfriend shirt or a chunky sweater.
Leggings have a tendency to come in and out of fashion, but to me, they feel like a fuss-free base layer that are comfortable alternatives to jeans, especially if you’re continuing to work from home.
Elevate them further by adding statement accessories like a chain necklace and a minimalist bag.
