Classic Black Move Over: Stirrup Leggings Are Here To Stay

Game changing leggings on and off the mat.

Stirrup tights are traditionally associated with dancers who use them when dancing barefoot as the opening to the heel allows the tights to stay in place during movement. Recently, however, they have started to go mainstream because they help lengthen the leg line. This has, in turn, made yet another sportswear classic into a stylish trend.

That said, unlike many other trends stirrup leggings are easy to pull-off and have a “new classic” feel that will likely transcend many seasons to come. They can easily be swapped for your run-of-the-mill black leggings if you opt for solid colored ones. Brands like Alo, however, are taking fashion-forward approaches for those looking to push the envelope a bit.
