THE SUPER-SOFT
LEGGINGS

No longer consigned to the gym alone, leggings are officially acceptable to wear, well, everywhere. Opt for this black cotton pair for maximum versatility

You know something is sparking in the fashion world when the likes of Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung are papped wearing leggings. But since this wardrobe staple’s last rise to style fame (circa 2010, when it was solely acceptable to wear them under a dress), the rules have changed. Thanks to the rise of ‘athleisure’ – wearing gym clothes outside of the gym – leggings have become a rival to jeans. Team this black pair with heels and a longline blouse (the latter is the key to a flattering silhouette) for a chic evening look, or off-duty with a loose-fit T-shirt and pumps. Anything goes.
