You Won’t Believe Which Leggings Trend Is Back In Style

This look from the '80s is finally back in style.

Most of us know that fashion is cyclical. What once was cutting-edge becomes yesterday’s news as new cuts, colors and combinations become en vogue. And what’s old is new again, and this is certainly true in the case of… wait for it… stirrup pants! That’s right, these ’80s gems are back in style.

One question for you: why has it taken so long for this style to come back? No longer do we have to endure our leggings riding up our legs and looking too short. No longer will our leggings look wrinkled and lose. No longer must we tuck and re-tuck them into our boots. Stirrup pants are making a comeback on runways, and I for one couldn’t be more excited.

I can still remember the pastel purple stirrup leggings I had as a child. I loved those pants until there were holes in the knee. I have been searching for a new pair ever since. Here are a few of the many pairs flooding the stores this fall, plus a few ideas of how you can wear them.

1. Standard Black

Ballet flats, heels or boots will all look amazing with this newest closet necessity. You can dress them up for a night on the town or go slightly more casual for daytime wear.

2. Athleisure Wear

These pants will be perfect for all your yoga moves as well as for lying around on the couch. The best part is that no matter how you move the bottoms will stay put. Plus, how fun is this pattern?

3. Jeggings 

That’s right stirrup jeggings are now available for daily wear. Pair them with an oversized sweater, a blouse or even a T-shirt. These are sure to be your new go-to pants.
