While the legging trend seems to be here to stay, there are trends within the trend that we're always on the lookout for. We covered microtrends like streetwear-inspired leggings, white leggings, and even treggings in 2016, and we've now received the first indication of what's in store for 2017.
The Active Collective Trade Show just took place in New York, and cool activewear and athleisure brands like Alo Yoga, Reebok, Beyond Yoga, Champion, P.E Nation, FP Movement, and Michi (just to name a few) were all on hand to debut their upcoming collections and give a peek at the trends to come this year. And as luck would have it, many of the brands were on the same page.
The post–trade show verdict is that the biggest legging trends of the near future are black and white, nature-inspired prints, matching sets and jumpsuits, shades of pink, and stars. To ensure that you're ahead of this cool, eclectic mix of styles to come, we found our five favorite pairs of leggings to embody the trends.
