Black is back with a vengeance.  Although prints are consistently on rotation, sometimes it just feels good to simplify and get back to the basics with the LBL (“little black legging”).  We are not talking about the black leggings of yore – the original spandex that your mothers swore by – we are talking about fashion forward leggings that are both chic and versatile.

Here are some of our top picks for leggings with refined details that make them your not-so-basic black:

  1. Koral Active – Forge Leggings.  We love the subtle mix of texture-blocking with these Koral Active tights.  The angled panels with a slight sheen add a moto-inspired edginess that is on point right now.  Pair with your favorite workout tank for studio time, or top off with a drapey sweater for a hot night look.

  2. DYI – Stripe Out Leggings.  These DYI leggings are a sporty take on the sheer trend we are seeing right now. We love the linear mesh detailing at the thigh and calves that will offer some peek-a-boo sexiness.  The versatility of being able to wear these tights to the barre and then with heels to the bar later make them a two-fer that make them a great buy.

  3. Strut This – Kennedy Legging. And for the gals who are willing to take a little more risk and who want to take this sheer trend to the next level, we are all about these Strut This legging with provocative sheer paneling at the hips and at the ankles.  Rock them with a simple crop if you want to show off your toned mid-section and then some, or take it down a notch with a longer hemmed shirt that will offer just enough coverage to add a veil of mystery.
