Why leggings are the hottest look in Hollywood
Possibly one of the easiest A-list trends to emulate this season, leggings are well and truly back on the fashion radar of Hollywood’s hottest style stars.
In various guises, the humble legging has become a prerequisite for both downtime dressing and high-octane red carpet appearances, and shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon.
With so many styles going on, we’ve narrowed it down to the four key looks:
Classic black: A wardrobe staple, classic black leggings are the easiest to wear of the bunch. Jessica Biel teams hers with oversized check shirts, while Victoria Beckham layers up with slick tunics. The queen of maternity chic, Nicole Richie has lived in hers during her second pregnancy, even wearing them on the red carpet with a long black tee and white jacket.
Jeggings: Are they jeans, are the leggings – if you can’t decide then they’re probably jeggings. A hybrid of the two fashion classics, the tightest denims this season have been spotted on the likes of Cameron Diaz, Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst.
Printed: It all gets a bit Eighties when it comes to printed leggings. Fearne Cotton has multiple pairs in the brightest hues, as has Drew Barrymore. Kate Hudson dresses down in her stripy pair, and Helena Christensen takes the trend to its subtlest form, with her ditsy print crops.
