Cropped leggings are ‘in’ – celebrities get on the big trend
Leggings are definitely having a moment in the fashion stakes. Just a few weeks ago, both Beyoncé and Victoria Beckham were spotted sporting skin-tight leggings for a variety of public appearances, with fashion editors and glossy magazines naming leggings as the trend to watch in the coming months.
With summer in full swing, it’s important to remember that leggings have an even ‘cooler’ little sister; a cropped version, and they can be just as fashionable, if not more on-trend at the moment than your traditional full length leggings. Global stars like the Kardashian’s and supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely have been some of the first to bring the trend for 3/4 leggings back into the spotlight, but for some women, capri-style bottoms are a style that are avoided due to styling concerns and for fear that they won’t suit certain body shapes.
Well, here at Love Leggings, we don’t believe that only certain body shapes can wear certain things – we think that everyone should be able to wear anything they want to, and enjoy the body you’re in. Which is why in today’s blog post we want to show you how you can feel confident in cropped leggings with clever, fashion-conscious styling that will make even the celebs envious.
This year’s most popular fashion item has to be an oversized blazer or jacket. A firm Kardashian favourite, cropped capri leggings are the perfect accompaniment to a statement jacket, balancing off the skin-tight look of the leggings with slouchy, oversized outerwear. For a comfortable, yet fashionable, day to day look, pair our Black Cropped leggings with a tucked-in white tee, black sandals and oversized outerwear of your choice for the perfect day time chic. Going out later? Simply upgrade for the night with a pair of your favourite comfortable heels so you can spend your evening dancing the night away!
Tunic tops are also a great way of balancing out the skin tight finish of your cropped leggings, and are perfect for an everyday summer outfit. We’d recommend fully embracing this trend with a beautiful white tunic top and matching white cropped leggings from our collection, and a lovely pair of gold sandals or slip on shoes would be the perfect warmer day outfit – even a great holiday option if you’re jetting off somewhere in the next few weeks!
You may not think this, but cropped leggings are not just the perfect everyday essential, the area of the leg our cropped leggings finish actually works perfectly with heels, as they help to make your legs appear longer, which can often be many women’s concern when trying cropped leggings. This means that going out for the evening doesn’t have to have you being uncomfortable for hours on end, you can pair your new cropped leggings with a lovely smock dress and your favourite heels for a look that can help you feel confident on your evening out. With the added bonus of our non-see-through guarantee, there’s also no need to worry about showing too much skin, so you can enjoy your evening without the worry of non-see-through bottoms.
We’d love to know if you have embraced the cropped leggings trend in the past, and if you’ll be sporting them this summer season too!
