The Leggings Trend No One Saw Coming

In case there was any doubt in your mind that former blogger Pernille Teisbaek is the coolest, most forward person to follow on Instagram, we’re here to drive the point home. Per usual, Teisbaek is an early adopter of a major upcoming trend. The fall 2016 runways from the likes of Marni and Balenciaga were chock-full of stirrups, and she’s already taking the trend out for a spin.

Teisbaek posted a shot of herself wearing a pair of leggings-trouser hybrid stirrups by New York–based brand Totême, along with a pair of emerald green Carrie Bradshaw–esque Manolo Blahnik heels (similar style here). While many retailers’ versions of the 1980s-era pant style have yet to hit stores, we found a few (namely athleisure brands) that are churning out stirrup leggings, so now you can follow in Teisbaek’s fashionable footsteps.

Keep scrolling to see stirrup leggings on Teisbaek and the F/W 16 runways and shop a few cool versions of the style.
