Human beings have always sought comfort when it comes to dressing. Be in fashion is part of the issues that affect when wearing a shirt, trousers or socks.
In recent times the use of leggins as a daily garment has grown strongly. This type of trousers or tights have gone beyond the stereotypes that associate them with sports practice to become clothing that can be worn at work, at leisure and to be at home.
It could be said that legging wants to take over the famous jeans, already so linked to casual wear. Millennials and young people of generation Z no longer dress as formally as their parents and grandparents did.
Great brands and famous designers have included leggins in their collections. Some companies not dedicated to sportswear have launched a sport line in which they have included this type of clothing. See, for example, Dolce&Gabbana sells this type of product for more than 500 euros and Gucci for almost 700.
And to this current, of course, are added social media influencers, which multiply by thousands the advertising reach of leggins as a garment associated with the healthy lifestyle linked to fitness.
And it is not a passing fad that the industry wants to take advantage of. Already in 2016, the online sale of women’s legging surpassed jeans in the United States. The versatility of this garment – it can be worn on the street and used in the gym – makes this trend continue growing. Besides, it doesn’t have the bad image of the sweatshirt as a garment. The leggings has come to the fashion industry to stay.
