8 leggings we are seeing all over Instagram

8 leggings we are seeing all over Instagram

Thankfully it seems leggings are not just a lockdown daydream – they are perfect for normality too. Here are eight pairs we are seeing all over Instagram


Throughout lockdown, we found ourselves wearing athleisure leggings more than we usually would.

Although, it’s easy to see why.

Stretchy, easy to wear, and comfortable, the humble legging has become a fashion saviour of sorts. No longer confined to just the gym, the legging has taken to the streets and is pounding the pavement with pride.

Instagram is one of the best places to search out cult items and when it comes to admired leggings, the choice is endless.

From Alo Yoga’s uber-popular high-waisted version to sustainable Irish brand Olly & Olly Co’s blue bottoms of dreams, you will have a tough decision to make.

Our top choice is the Nike biker short – perfect for this time of year and cut at some of the most flattering points on the body, while the Upside’s tie-dye offering takes a close second. This is a pair on the pricey side but the material is superb and the added design flair makes them the perfect all-rounder.
