Ah, leggings – how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…

As we previously revealed in our round-up of winter 2016 trends, sportswear as daywear has never been bigger, with plenty of people favouring the slouchy look away from the gym – think in the line for morning coffee, over a business lunch, out for drinks, or on the school run.

Meanwhile, some celebs aren’t just wearing performancewear as everydaywear; they’re also donning it for red carpet events (see Gigi Hadid as a prime example).

From hoop zip details to side-stripe pants, there are plenty of ways to update your wardrobe and embrace the athleisure look, but there’s no denying that a pair of comfy-yet-stylish leggings is our favourite way to work the trend.

So, to make it a little easier for us to trawl through all the fashionable leggings has to offer, Pinterest took it upon themselves to unveil the most popular pair on the internet.

Still not sold on the sportswear trend?

Speaking to Vogue.com, Julie Rice – aka the founder of SoulCycle – heaped praise upon athleisure, saying: “I think wearing your athleticwear all day is more than acceptable. It’s a trend.

“People of all ages are wearing their workoutwear all day now, whether it’s leggings with a longer coat and a scarf, or someone younger wearing a cropped T-shirt with a denim jacket and some high-heeled boots.

“People shop for their athleticwear thinking, ‘How can I wear this from the studio to the street?’”
