As fashion preferences change, designers constantly create new styles and trends people will love. But some trends just never die. Fashion leggings are one of those timeless pieces that are incorporated into our wardrobes in new and exciting ways. From the hair bands of the 1980s to the fashion runways in Milan, colorful leggings have been seen everywhere and on everyone. Their comfort and versatility have contributed to their recent resurgence as the must-have piece in every wardrobe.
Those of us who love leggings owe a big thank you to fashion icons of the 1970s such as, Olivia Newton John and Jackie Collins, who proved that leggings could be both feminine and fashionable at the same time. Hollywood goddesses such as Audrey Hepburn used leggings to change the traditional notions of female fashion around by taking simple leggings and turning them into frequently sighted signature pieces in the wardrobes of the most fashionable women of all time. No fashion history lesson would be complete without an homage to pop icon Madonna, who showed us that lace leggings could make anyone look sexy. Jane Fonda proved that leggings were the ultimate in workout wear, and the runway models of today are a strong reminder that this fashion trend will not be going away anytime soon.
