Will This Trend Replace Your Go-To Leggings?

So you have countless pairs of garden-variety black leggings in your closet. What's the next step up? We've offered you plenty of upgrade ideas before—ballerina leggings, anyone?—but Kendall Jenner's look is steering us in a different direction right now. Spotted in Paris today, the model wore shiny patent-leather leggings that instantly caught our eye.

While leggings are inherently a casual staple, choosing a pair in a patent material will instantly make your outfit feel more elevated—and even Paris Fashion Week-appropriate as Jenner demonstrated. She rounded out the look with Gucci's Embroidered Cotton-Jersey Hooded Top ($2600), a vivid red blazer, and ankle boots, resulting in a look we're dying to copy.
