It may not feel like it quite yet, but it’s officially leggings season.
(We’ll wait while your pure excitement settles down.)
In most of the country, it’s still hot or humid, but celebs like Ashley Tisdale are already ahead of the cool-weather curve. Not only did the High School Musical alum sport the trend with a causal black tank and sneakers for one effortless athleisure look, but she put a different spin on the much-loved fall style, opting for a PVC-like sheen.
There’s a latex-looking finish on Ashley’s pants, which gives it a fresher, feminine feel than your matte or motorcycle iterations. They are almost retro, resembling the workout materials popular during the heyday of Olivia Newton-John‘s “Physical.” And, as we all know, everything from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are back.
How do you modernize this look? Like Ashley, pair your leggings with a non-shiny material, like a simple tank or crop top. Let the leggings do all the talking, and add statement-making accessories, like a print bag or oversize sunglasses, to enhance your shine.
