If I told my mother that stirrup leggings were trendy again, she would have that “I told you” look on her face.
Why do you need to be strapped down in ballerina fashion to your leggings or trousers? Simply try them in the fitting room first, you’ll understand.
Athleisure clothing is at fevered pitch among the model off-duty crowd. We can totally see Gigi Hadid sporting this.
The stirrup makes for a slimmer silhouette, like the trendy bodysuit that tucks everything in without the bagginess.
We can also imagine socialite Olivia Palermo making this trend super versatile underneath a down jacket in the wintertime.
To channel your inner ballerina, try Zara’s affordable Ballet Leggings With Crossover Ankle Strap ($22.90).
Pair your stirrup leggings with ballet flats for that casual Friday, or polish that outfit, like how my mother once did, with loafers.
Dressed up or down, the stirrup legging is perfect for layering as the weather cools down.
